Wah Wah Pedal with AC Jack
Based on the specifications of the original pedal developed by VOX in the '60s, the new Wah-Wah 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.
The VOX V847 Wah-Wah pedal takes the original sound of the 1960's and brings with authentic style. The V847 has been painstakingly constructed to the exact specifications of the original pedal used by many influential guitarists of the late 60's and 70's. This wah-wah pedal is truly 'period correct' from the classy chrome top to it's legendary growl. Also includes a vinyl carry bag.
The massive success achieved by VOX in the 1960s laid the foundation for the legacy that continues to thrive nearly 60 years later. The sound of VOX amplifiers has left a lasting impact on popular music that still reverberates today. The most influential artists in the world continue to rely on VOX amplifiers to deliver world-class tone in the finest studios and on the biggest stages around the globe. Find your voice with VOX.
Remove the 4 screws from the rubber feet that secure the bottom cover. And then install a 9-volt battery (6F22/6LF22/6FR61), being sure to connect the correct polarity. If you plan on not using the pedal for an extended period of time, remove the battery to avoid damage caused by leakage. You can connect an optional AC adapter (DC9V) to DC9V jack.

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.
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.
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.
Pros: Sounds Great
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.
Would buy again, a must for all musicians.
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.Read more ›
