Overview

The V847A Wah-Wah pedal is an enhanced version of the most famous guitar effects pedal of all time. Based on the specifications of the original pedal developed by VOX in the '60s, this version offers guitarists the same legendary tone with the addition of AC power capability and a buffered input jack for preserving the unprocessed guitar tone when the pedal is not engaged. The pedal's inductor has undergone a redesign to be closer in specification to the original VOX wah inductors, for improved dynamics and tone. These additions will benefit players of all genres who use a wah pedal as an integral part of their sound.
About the Wah-Wah
VOX developed the world's first Wah-Wah effect during the '60s in an effort to allow guitarists to emulate the sound of a trumpet being muted - an important musical ingredient of the day. VOX's original Wah-Wah pedal quickly gained widespread popularity and its unique sonic characteristics have encouraged further experimentation by guitarists ever since. Having made spotlight appearances on some of the most famous recordings of all time, the Wah-Wah is still considered "must-have equipment" for guitar players of all levels and abilities today.

This is now the only wah I will use. The other guitarist in my band is not crazy about this one but this is the most original sounding wah I have ever use. There is a reason for Hendrix using this pedal. It doesn't just wah it has its own voice. It really screams through a strat but it isnt as agressive as a crybaby which I will get for my metal tones. Buy this pedal.

I've only had this pedal since Memorial Day Weekend and, despite the great looks and sturdy housing, I must say that I am thoroughly unimpressed with the reliability of this pedal. Between the squeaking hinges I seemed to have fixed, then the squeaking noise that started coming through the amp afterwards, and finally the on/off switch that only works when it wants to, I will be returning this unit. I am SO glad I got Pro Coverage when I bought this, a definitely recommend getting that to anyone making a purchase of this product. If have can only return it for a new unit, or have to leave it for 'repairs' under the Pro Coverage Plan, I will still be shopping for a Wah Pedal made by a different manufacturer to replace the Vox 847A on my chain. If I can return it for an 'in store credit' I will immediately shop for a different Wah manufactured by a different company. My experience using the Vox 847A Wah has been extremely disappointing so far.

          Comments about Vox V847A Wah-Wah Pedal:

          This wah pedal is the bomb. I really enjoy the things that I can do now with it that I would not have been able to do before. It's a must have. My only 2 complaintd are that you have to unscrew the bottom to get to the 9v battery (the rubber feet kinda work like a thumb screw, do it isn't awful). My second complaint is that you pretty much have to stand up to shut the pedal off because of how low the switch is.

          Great for any style!!

          By Andrew Gadson

          from Twentynine Palms, CA

          Comments about Vox V847A Wah-Wah Pedal:

          The range of this wah is outstanding, personally I prefer a more vocal range of wah sound so I put picks under the toe end so I don't press the pedal all the way down. I'm a huge Joe Bonamassa fan as well as SRV and both players have used Vox wahs. Both players were influenced by the great Jimmi Hendrix and this wah really captures his sound and they emulate it. If you want that sound you have to have this wah pedal!!

          Professional Wah Tone At An Affordable Price

          By EDWARD LANZILOTTA

          from Boston, Massachusetts

          Comments about Vox V847A Wah-Wah Pedal:

          I am absolutely in love with this pedal. I have had it for 7 months now and its truly been through hell and back. I use this pedal more than any other on my board. It is built like a tank and survives even the most whole-hearted stomp in the middle of a Voodoo Child solo. The classic wah tone is all there. The sweep is almost perfect for me personally, some people like to have it adjusted. I found it came set up perfectly. I can't say enough about this thing. Vox did it right again and I will keep coming back.

          Awesome Wah!!!

          By Austin Masur

          from Edgewood, MD

          Comments about Vox V847A Wah-Wah Pedal:

          I just got this Wah Wah a few hours ago, but already I love it! It was the best out of all the other wahs I tried. It is very sturdy, and sounds amazing. The only trouble I have is trying to find a 9volt adapter with the correct polarity. The wah has negative on the inside and positive on the outside. All of mine are the opposite, but it's not a problem. Case is great too.
