Overview

Xotic Effects Wah XW-1 is based on the Holy Grail wah, 1967-1968 Italian-built Clyde McCoy Wahs. With the Xotic XW-1 you don't get one or three sounds in one pedal, you get unlimited sounds with unique controls that shape and contour your sound the way you hear it. The adjustability and flexibility of the XW-1 makes this one of the most versatile wah pedals available today.

With the XW-1 you will enjoy some exciting and innovative features including:
¢ Self-lubricating nylon bushing pivot for quiet and smooth operation with fully-adjustable rocker pedal tension
¢ Gold contact relay true bypassing, which allows for transparent true bypass tone, while incorporating ultra reliable switching with minimum one million life cycle
¢ 20% smaller footprint than conventional wah pedals
¢ Fully adjustable Wah-Q and Bias controls and a two-band EQ with +/-15 dB center-detent potentiometers optimize the voicing for different playing styles and gear
¢ Fuzz-friendly buffering circuit assures a great sounding wah tone with your favorite fuzz pedals

External Controls & Features:
Bias Control - Changing the bias warmer will lead the XW-1 to having slightly more output & firm up bass frequencies along with a more pronounced wah through the sweep. A cold bias is common with vintage wah pedals for a very clear voice that is more transparent in tone and smoother in operation.
Wah Q Control - This knob adjusts the Q (the width of the filter peak) and in basic terms, adjusts the amount of the wah effect for precise filter shaping to achieve vocal-like effects.
Treble & Bass Control - A two-band EQ with +/-15 dB center-detent potentiometers optimize the voicing for different playing styles and gear
Adjustable Rubber Stopper - Located on the backside bottom of the treadle this rubber bumper can be shimmed to adjust the travel range of the pedal.
Adjustable Pedal Torsion - Fully-adjustable rocker pedal torsion by adjusting Hex nut on the treadle.
LED Indicator - The LED indicator is located at the top of the XW-1 and lights up when the pedal is on. One unique feature of the XW-1 is the LED will flash if the battery power falls below 50% and indicates that it is time to change the battery.
DC Jack - 2.1mm x 5.5mm 9VDC - Negative Center. When an external power supply is used, the battery is disconnected from the circuit. When using a battery, the life of the battery can be extended if you unplug the input when the effect is not in use for long periods of time. Battery access is through the removal of bottom plate (4 screws).

            Comments about Xotic Wah XW-1 Guitar Effects Pedal:

            The Xotic Wah is what you'd expect from a great company. I love that it's slightly smaller and fits on my board better then traditional sizes. It's got great tone right out of the box but, with the 2 band eq and bias a Q controls I was able to dial in my sound with a simple turn. The smaller knobs are cool cause they don't get knocked in transport. I felt it gets that Clyde tone really easily by just following suggested settings. Then I just upped the bass knob a bit to get a more congruent tone to my dry signal. Oh yeah, it's super pretty too.
