Style Name: V847A Wah Wah Pedal with AC Jack
In my opinion, the best sounding wah on the market. It has a wide, full range of tones so you can get your funk and Jimi Hendrix on. Works well for a Temptations, "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" vibe. I run it through my Mesa-Boogie Subway Blues and get a pretty decent vintage tone with it. Since I don't play metal music, I'm not sure how Kurt Hammet-esque it would sound. I sold guitars for a while and have tried wahs from Dunlop and Morley. I think the Vox beats them both hands down, but it all depends on your musical tastes.

Style Name: V847A Wah Wah Pedal with AC Jack
I've had mine for well over 10 years now, and having playing *many* other wahs, this is the one that stays on stage with me. It's got the best sweep, the wah bubble sounds great and is easy to control (ever notice on other wahs how uneven the sweep is, like you're dropping off a cliff all of the sudden?). And if for any reason you want to take it to the next level, you can get a fasel inductor and/or true bypass (parts'll cost you $20, most guitar techs will put 'em in for another 10-20) and really be screaming. (I recommend the true bypass in any case)

This wah lets you do the funky bow-chika-bow-wow, talk ala "Voodoo Child" and everything in between. I've used it with strats, jazzmasters, 335s and the G&L teles. Never anything less than smoking.

And as you might guess, in the 10+ years I've had it, it has taken a royal beating. I've gone through 3 volume pedals, but my VOX has always stayed tough.

Style Name: V845 Classic Wah Wah Pedal Verified Purchase
I have been using this pedal for over 9 month, and only thing I can say is, it's just perfect.
I usually play 60's and 70's music, and by using this pedal you can really deliver the legendary sounds such as Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page have produced.
So, basically it's really simple to use, it has no any extra annoying buttons, you just press it down and it's on and you press it again - it's off.
The build quality is pretty decent too, even though it says that it's made in china. It's also easy to disassemble it, there are 4 bolts that can be easily removed by hand. Personally I have not experienced any dust-related problems, as other user had. The only annoying thing might be that you have to replace the 9V battery once in a month or two, which only costs like 2$ on amazon. Well, I totally recommend this product, if you really are a big fan of classic rock.

Style Name: V847A Wah Wah Pedal with AC Jack
I play mine through a Fender Stratocaster hooked up to a Marshall half stack. I bought it (prematurely) because I wanted to look like Jimi Hendrix and do whatever Jimi did. Hey- I was young and naive.

The robust, excellent construction of the Vox Wah pedal makes it very hard for anyone to really break it, or even damage it in any way. It's built very well, and aesthetically, the Vox Wah surpasses most other wah pedals on the market.

Unfortunately, the pedal lags in the actual "wah" sound that one looks for when using a wah pedal. I mean, there is a "wah sound" but it's pretty subtle and not very exciting- I guess you can say that the wah's sound is rather limited and there's not TOO much difference from when you step on the pedal back and forth. It's just not very exaggerated. If this is what you like, then maybe this pedal is for you- personally, I think the CryBaby pedal gives more bang for the buck.

Style Name: V847A Wah Wah Pedal with AC Jack
I wanted a wah-wah pedal that had a mellow snarl to it but also a growl, and this is it. For funk it works great. I was supprised how professional it sounded. It also souned great for playing those phycedellic sounding chord progressions. I love this thing. If your just starting to get effects pedals (like I am) than you gotta have a wah-wah, and this one gave me the exact sound I wanted. the only problem I had with it is that the on/off foot button broke, so it could still wah, but I just couldn't turn it off. I took it into the store and they fixed it no charge and now it works great again. So if you need a good wah-wah pedal that has the exact sound we all want, then you have no other choice but to get this.

This was the first Wah pedal I ever bought. I bought it because I thought it sounded the best. I loved it. I kept it for a back up.

Pros: Sounds Great
Affordable Price

Cons: Must unscrew the bottom panel to get at the battery.
After a good year of 3 day a week band practices and gigging the pot bent. Oh well buy a new one.

I highly recommend the pedal.

This is definetely one of the greatest pedals ever. The Wah sound generated is sounds classic, different from moderns wah pedals, yet unique. The range on which you can move your foot is very small compared with other pedals. Also, you need to stand up with all your body weight on one foot, on the front of the pedal to turn it off. Finish is sleek and great crasftmanship. Comes with a leather bag for carrying around and protecting.

Would buy again, a must for all musicians.

Style Name: V847A Wah Wah Pedal with AC Jack Verified Purchase
This was my first wah pedal, which I purchased with some birthday money. It is NOT a true bypass, for those who are curious.

When I first plugged into the Vox V847, I noticed the sweep was sharp and quick. There is a spot, just past the middle towards the toe, where there is a very sudden sharp sweep, almost like flicking a switch, when the sound changes quickly. While not bad, it just doesn't suit my taste for most music, except for funk. I love using this wah pedal for Voodoo Chile type sweep rhythms.

Also, something else I noticed is that in the heel-down position, things are very muddy, indistinguishable, and almost empty of any tone. When used right, this can sound pretty cool, but I just can't stay in that position if I want anything I'm playing to be heard by others.

This pedal is great for Rock solos. With some distortion or overdrive, the sharp sweep sound great to emphasize bends and notes, especially when rocking back and forth to a set of quick notes or a finger tapping section, emphasizing certain notes, it sounds great. With distortion though, it is harder to get a smooth sounding transition from heel to toe. In fact, it is even harder.

I recently got a Dunlop 535Q Crybaby, and will be modding my old Vox Wah, to either sell, or add to my studio equipment depending on the new sounds I can get out of it. If you are interested in electronics, there are numerous mods out there for this pedal. You can make it true bypass, change the sweep range, high end, low end, and low end clarity.

Overall, I found this pedal very handy and fun to have when playing, as it really adds another element to your sound, and is always a crowd pleaser. While I listed many faults to this thing, it really works great for the price.
