Malu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Artec APW-7 Dual Mode Whish Wah
The APW-7 is a wah pedal that I can not tell you the technology (but not light!). In one entry, one out, a port for a 9V power supply, the classic big.
Classic but not especially well done in terms of entry for the power supply which is on the right side of the beast (I say this because I find most convenient entries to the "back" of the pedals). Access to battery is very easy: a trap in the pedal, easy opening with your fingers.
There are two knobs: Range, which determines the extent of the filter, and Whish, or the power of the additional effect, to add punch. There are a selector to adapt to a low pedal.
I had it for about 70 euros in stores.

Edit the August 7: it is unbreakable!


No manual at the same time, what for? A respect for the environment.
The config 'is generally easy, 2 knobs to adjust, it is not death. And then a wah, you can not expect a lot of different sounds, but with nuances.


Well it has a Wah-Wah, whose effect is appreciable for the solo of "Killing in the name of" for example. The rhythmic funk out easily. But we want to use this pedal for more subtle things, like music based on mood, it shows its limits.
I help with an Ibanez Gio and Fender HotRod Deluxe.
One can criticize his lack of progressivity in the transition from low to high, but still satisfactory.

I put him 7 because it is suitable for funky rhythm, which is often essential to use a wah, and because the Whish offers a little more.


I use it for almost 6 months now, and I am generally satisfied.
The plus for me is the Whish, and the least is the entrance to the power supply '(not included) not practical.
I had previously used a Wah pedal from a ME (the figure escapes me), it grows more than the Wah of a multi effects is clear.
The report QP is pretty good without being exceptional.
With the experience I taterai to add twenty euros to offer me a Vox instead.

Edit the August 7, 2008: After having had the opportunity to try the cry baby and Vox, I think the price / quality ratio is better, as it turns out to be true bypass, ultra-strong, and contrary to the vox, it does not attack the ears in aigus.Je thought a change of two models I mentioned, but I see that I did not really win the exchange. 9 / 10 deserved it!

See below.
Wah wah pedals with an optical sensor (not squeaky crmaillre)
The one true bypass pedals possde is important all the same trs.
Solid, adaptable to a bass.
Ultra sound.


No need for manual, at worst you hack the 2 knobs
rglages offers all the same to a good range of sound. Plac loop is obtained for the nice texture of Fast Fashion friendly atmosphere.
Trs enjoyable, good balance, the pedals are soft and supple
The area is on the cot a little weird but why not? the cable is being protected by the Manir jack.


The audio module does not beginners race, a shame.
Otherwise the grain noise is extra. Trs sound crisp and prcis.
The pedals allows rglage extreme enough fun, wish the thrust blocks gives a semblance of Whamy effect.
No breath parasite.
Used with N2, it spits out dry with a large overdrive. Extra.


Findable for 60ene Euros. A case that is moving.
It is a wah with everything you need to be happy.

Artec APW-7 Dual Mode Whish Wah
digital (I assume) simple: one in and one out with a true bypass. optical sensor, the top silent and accurate at the time.
used with a low: nice.


manual without interest, two knobs to fiddle with, we can no longer simple.


to be used for (too) long an old VOX 70 years, there's no picture: it does not blow, it does not crackles is precise and the effect is readily assayable.


very good quality / price ratio, it does its job properly and that's all we asked ...

Artec APW-7 Dual Mode Whish Wah
ARTEC provides wah entry level. This does not mean low quality, as we shall see.

- Fully analog
- Switches to optical detection
- Mechanical switch
- Control the frequency range scanned (range)
- Bass switch for ... low
- LED on / off
- Potentiometer "wish" to add resonance to be the lightest kind of controllable feedback
- Battery powered or 9V adapter (not supplied transformer)

Entry level, but oddly well built. Quality workmanship and perfect finish.


Setup is extremely simple and intuitive.
The scale is sensitive, precise and progressive, at least on the model I own (see previous review).
The mechanical switch is properly calibrated.
The two potentiometers are also progressive and sensitive.
I would have preferred knobs arranged on the side to be accessible to foot, including the effect wish to play with live.


Well again, the quality is by appointment.
The wah is quite modern, but the possibility of playing on the frequency range swept brings true versatility.
The effect is very present, even quite dramatic and personally I would have liked to play a potentiometer on the Q-factor (intensity of effect), providing a bit more nuance to this effect.

Most of this is the wah effect Wish: it controls a loop resonance in short, a sort of feedback domesticate. This makes the effect even more spectacular wah. At maximum, the feedback completely covers the sound of the guitar. This produces a kind of theremin ®, a siren whose frequency is controllable foot (much like how the wah sing Singing Geisha Jacques, for those who know ??!!). It's a bit hidden effect of this pedal. Interesting and unexpected.

Writ of beautiful sounds, maybe a little too pronounced, and indeed wish surprising and atypical.


This is an entry-wah quite surprising.
By its quality first. By then his versatility. And effect "wish" really unusual and surprising, even a sort of hiding ® Theremin.

Wah that is worth seeing for its excellent quality / price ratio and its capabilities.
