Best Wah-Wah pedal money can buy!

Ease Of Use Very easy to use this pedal, just step on the switch and its on, step on it again and its off :)

Putting a battery in is simple as well. Unscrew the 4 screws on the bottom of the pedal and stick a 9V battery inside.

No DC output.

Sound I am using it through a Vox AD50VT, BUT I did try it through my brothers Peavey 6505 and it sounded 10x better! I guess things just sound better through tube amps ;)
Very versatile pedal, works with all styles. It makes no noise when switched on and the sweep is smooth and even.
I remembered that some of my favorite artists used this wah like Chris Amott from Arch Enemy and when I played a solo with the wah, I instantly achieved his tone! Amazing!

Reliability Very reliable, wouldn't need a back up if I gigged with it, battery lasts forever! still have the original one in after 4 months.

Built like a tank.

Customer Support Never needed to call the company :)

Liked about it 1. Versatility
2. Sweep and tone
3. Built to last forever

Didn't like 1. It sucks a little tone but not that much to notice unless you listen very closely.

That's the only thing that's bad about it :)

Vintage sounding wah at a vintage price.

Ease Of Use Pretty simple operation: plug guitar into input, plug amp into output, step on pedal. There are no controls--just the expression pedal. The pedal's motion feels natural and smooth.

Sound Typical wah effect. This pedal has that vintage wah vibe, and when set to the middle--has a very vocal mid. The high side is a little tinny for my taste, but the low and mid position are awesome.

Reliability The electronics are housed in a very durable enclosure. The expression pedal feels smooth and natural, but tough enough to withstand constant foot pressure. The input and output jacks are tough.

Customer Support Never had to use them.

Liked about it Mids and lows were my favorites. At $89, it's a great wah for the money. I liked the natural feel of the pedal.

Didn't like I didn't care for the high tones. Sounded to much like I was playing in a tin can.
