Boss PW-10 V-Wah
I bought mine a while back, when this pedal first came out, I think somewhere in the range of $145. I thought the wahs were going to be really good and the distortions, too, knowing that Boss's compact pedals are the best distortion and overdrive pedals made.

The pedal is well thought up, and built by definitly someone with a great idea, but the pedal isn't that great, it could have, and should be better. The wahs are decent and it is built very well, that's all I can really say about it.

Ok, onto a review by a REAL musician... I have plenty of pedals, mainly wahs, distortions, and overdrives, then a few other pedals, but that doesn't really matter to anyone other than me. I own many wahs and distortions, because I have a certain tone I like to maintain, and the Boss V-Wah is nowhere up there to satisfy my needs. 1st off, there are way to many things on this pedal, it's supposed to be a wah, not a multi effects pedal! They should have concentrated on making this pedal soley a wah! The voice mode, the Uni-V, and the distortions/overdrives/booster, all sound like crap! They are a waste, they don't sound good at all! I was so shocked to see Boss make a pedal with THEIR own distortion and overdrive tones, and they sound horrible on the wah! They are that bad, they sound like you bought a cheap, crappy $10 distortion pedal or overdrive. DO NOT BUY THIS PEDAL AND USE THE DISTORTIONS, you will be very disappointed. Yes, you can put an EQ pedal after the wah to make them sound better, but why waste time and possibly $ if you don't have an EQ pedal, they still sound pretty bad. I won't even talk about how annoying it is to switch between distortions! This pedal is literally a MESS! The voice mode is unusable, is WON'T work with your amps distortion or your distortion pedal, it's a stupid effect anyway, so don't cry over it. The Uni-V is decent, but Boss did ruin a classic! The wahs are ok, they don't sound exactly like them, only the DUnlop wah simulation, it sound the closest out of the three, and is the better of the three. The bass wah sucks, I tried it out before, nothing like the Dunlop bass wah, nothing close. The dunlop wah is the closest to actually sounding like the real thing, but isn't better than any Dunlop wah. The Vox is terrible, they just added in more mids, they took their Dunlop wah recreation, added mids to it, and called it their Vox wah, sounds very weak. The Morley wah is probably not very useful, it's a deeper wah, doesn't really work too well, unless you want to make some wierd noise that sounds like a messed up wah. It's just very deep most of the time. The advanced wah is like their Dunlop wah simulation, but just is enhanced, (find out for yourself what that means, I am taking up too much space already) The custom wah, I never wasted my time trying it out, so I don't know if it's any good or just flat out bad. If you are going to get this pedal for some stupid reason, just use it as a regular wah, and maybe the uni-v if you want, just set what wah you want, no overdrives or distortions, and just use the toe switch to turn it on and off like a regular wah pedal. And no, I heard some idiots say it takes a second or two for the pedal to turn on and off, I don't know what they are doing, but they are probably "special"?... There are 3 memory locations, another dumb idea that is totally unecessary.

Built very nicely, I don't like the dumb idea of a heel swicth. I thought it was dumb and useless, so I never even tried it out. If you buy it used or loose your manual, the manual is condensed on the bottom of the pedal. Even if you get it new, just look at the bottom if you are lost, it's easier than the stupid story they write up for you.

This pedal is WAY OVERPRICED! IT isn't worth the $$$. There are too many stupid features on this pedal that sound like crap and shouldn't even be on it, it should only have the wahs, but they are not great either. If you are willing to spend $150 on this pedal, DON'T!!! Buy the Dunlop 535Q wah, you will literally get more for your $! That is what a wah pedal should be, not some piece of digital, multi-effects wanna-be CRAP! Trust me, I've tried the Boss wah through many different types of guitars with different pickups, many diff. amps, and with many diff. distortion and overdrive pedals, it really doesn't sound that great with any kind of equipment. Trust me, GO with the Dunlop 535Q wah, or any of Dunlop's wahs, the Boss wah is a rip off, you will be disappointed. Don't believe me, go try this piece of JUNK out yourself, and compare it to REAL wah pedals like a REAL Vox wah, Morley, Dunlop, Budda, Tech 21.....

MGR/Who knows?????'s review"Boss PW-10 V WAH"

Boss PW-10 V-Wah
Bought it from the music store right by me for about $140, the best buy ever!!! I tried out wah's, mainly dunlop, morley, and vox, this pedal has all of them in one and you can pick the range of the wah!!! Definitly the best wah out, nothing can beat this wah!

It's got a bunch of wah's in one, Morley, Dunlop, Vox, a bass wah, a custom wah, and advanced wah! The best sounding wah out! It has a uni-v, awesome feature, just like the dunlop rotovibe, I use that feature when playing hendrix, and then switch to the Vox V846 wah with the Big muff (which is also in the pedal)!! This pedal even has onboard distortions and overdrive! You can pick which you wanna use, OD-1, OD-2, Ds-1, Metal zone, big muff, blues driver, volume boost, and a few more! It even has a noise gate, and you can pick the range of the noise gate, from nothing, to getting rid of any extra noise! It has 3 memory saves, you really don't need to save anything, so don't cry that there's only 3, there really is no need to save anything. Turned it it on and switching back to bypass is simple, just like all wahs! I never used the heel switch, no need for it! Oh yeah, the best part is, no loud explosions when turning the pedal from bypass to on, or reverse, some wahs have those noisy pots, Boss was smart, made a little button thing, no noise at all when turning on or off! YOu wont need to replace the pots either, they don't seem to die out or get old or get noisy! You loose the instructions or get it used, who cares, on the bottom it tells you how to do everything, on the bottom plate.

The only thing I don't like about it is, I wish Boss made it sooner, I spent sooo much on wah's, and then Boss made one that sounds better than all of then!!!

It's an f'n Boss pedal, the best stuff out there!!!

If you are reading this, you obviously are thinking about getting it, stop reading this and just GO BUY IT, you won't be disappointed!!! This is the most versatile wah out, and it isn't only a wah!!!

MGR/WooOoO000oOOOooo00oOooOOOo0000OOOoo's review"Boss PW-10 V WAH"

Boss PW-10 V-Wah
I bought this from a music store for $148. I was looking for a really good sounding wah and a univibe pedal, and I found them in one pedal, the Boss pw-10 v wah!!!

This pedal doesn't just have a bunch of wahs in one pedal, but it has the uni-v in it too! Also, it has the voice mode, which is better than the older Boss humanizer pedal. The nose switch is easy, just like a Vox pedal. I like how they have the range knob and drive knob, they really let you get what you want. You can create you own wah too and pick from a bunch of distortions, like the metal zone, big muff, od-1, od-2, guv'nor, blues driver, booster(volume) and I think there is a few others.

The heel switch is sort of hard to use, but I don't use it any way, not a big deal. The only bad thing about this pedal is, if you wanna change which distortion you want to use,you gotta turn the power off, turn to advanced, hold memory, power on, pick distortion and the noise gate, and then save it. If you were playing a show and you needed to use the various distortions, you are going to get a little annoyed doing that a lot. But, doing that is worth it, there are some quality distortions that actually sound really good.

It's a Boss pedal, you know how great they are. The sounds this pedal produces are top notch, way worth whatever you gotta pay for it.

This is the most advanced pedal, it really is like a make you own guitar pedal, like the other person said. You gotta buy it, it has so much stuff in it.

MGR/Who Cares's review"Boss PW-10 V Wah"

Boss PW-10 V-Wah
I bought the Boss PW-10 V Wah at a local music store for $139.99, came out to about $150, a little bit lower, a few cents lower.
I bought it because I have dunlop wahs, morley wahs, and I had a Vox V847 but gave it away, I wanted a wah that had all of them in one and that actually sounded like them, and I found it, only Boss makes one, and it is the best!

This is definitly my favorite pedal ever, and I have a bunch, distortions, overdrives, wahs, volumes, flangers, phasers, fuzz, delas, easily, just about everything. I don't need any of the wahs or distortions anymore, the Boss V wah takes care of it. This pedal emulates the Vox V846 wah, Dunlop Crybaby, and Morley's Bad Horsie wahs!(yeah!!!) It has an intensity knob for the wah. You can adjust the distortion, the type of distortion depends on what wah you pick to use. An awesome feature is the "vowel", it makes vowel sounds, duh! But, an even better feature is the Rotovibe, or uni-v, it simulates the Vox Rotovibe pedal, the rotarty speaker. This pedal is insane, very worth buying, who cares how much it is, it has so much to do in one pedal! You'll be inside for a while getting the settings you like, there is so much to pick from! If you even think about getting this pedal, go for it, it is not a waste of your money.

Please, this pedal is insane, there is nothing to hate about it! Just get an adapter is you don't have one, batteries are annoying. I have read reviews where they said, "oh, you have to push down the nose of the pedal for like two seconds for it to turn off", wrong, if you have used a dunlop or vox wah pedal before, you know what to do! And no, it doesn't take long to bypass, I just push my toes down and it is either on or bypassed, very simple, you just gotta use a little more force than you would have to with a vox or dunlop wah. I haven't used the heel switch yet, so I won't say anything good or bad about that, but probably is good.

It's a Boss pedal, you only get the best quality pedals from Boss. If you have Boss pedals, you know how good they are, but this is the best Boss pedal!

Bottom line, one of the best choices I have ever made for getting an effect pedal for my guitar! This pedal does so much stuff, a pedal that was very worth buying, it is the best, trust me, I have been playing guitar for a long time! I have been looking for a good wah for a long time, my favorite has been the Dunlop GCB-95 wah, but I don't know, the Boss V wah might take over. You won't make the wrong choice in buying this pedal! It has soooo many quality fx in it, I keep saying that over and over, because it is true! I am gonna rate the pedal a 5, but it is way over a 5, waaaayyyyy over a 5!!!
