- What are the effects or types of effects available?
Wah Wah Wah Wah classic + Boost.

- What technology is used? (Analog, numrique, lamp ...)
Analog technology with a component in the system call is the Fasel sense imitates the sound of Wah Premire including those used by Hendrix and Clapton among others ... That said never able to test an original wah, trs is unclear whether this is true or not.

- Are they ditables? Via an editor Mac / PC?
Editable "manually" via the knobs of range, the boost and tone (the famous Q) and volume, but not via a computer.

- What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
An input and an output jack classical training, but not between noon good as a guitarist intrt the standard seems to me not ...

- Is this a rack or rack MODEL?
As a bit of all the effects, it is up o you want to taste, as the book puts it, "just put some prfreront APRS guitar and effects and apply all of the signal wah, other prfreront put right at the end of the rack to effect a little more particular. " For my part I have chosen to put it in between, just APRS APRS my tuner and my whammy, and for me as well trs a.

- Your score on this?
From the perspective CHARACTERISTICS it can not much blame was everything CHARACTERISTICS of the most classic wah (the crmaillre, the switch under the pedals) but also has a longer range of the knob but also the boost and the volume and four associated with it. Note the really solid case, which has two advantages: first, we said that was okay and take it to the solid Premire, and the second was not moving at all gr that the association with weight bearing anti-draping that melts the wah is the o has been place. The "grip" o we put her foot is of good quality may be not as gripping as that of the whammy, but more than enough to glue the sole of your shoe and do not give you a sense of slip As far as the movements are connected.
Some may criticize the fact that there have not resort to replace the pedals and zero-position cut-off / automatic switch-wah inactivitactivit as any on the Morley, but I think it tastes and colors, aa its default as its quality (the cut is done after a certain period of time and can be embtant for example).
10/10, because for that price esprer the more you really have to have feet on the ground.


- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?
Trs simple when you understand what was in the hands (that is, not start all the knobs to boost / volume / bottom four with the range on the beach the more acute as possible and play clean with a clean amp setting ptillant and using the bridge pickup of your guitar tone with volume and background ... basically not to get out you really look for the small box). In terms of ergonomics, I find it excellent as the I thought it would be ngatifs points: the knobs are trs well located and you really do expr s to change rglage unintentionally and activation knob is much better than I imagined, must be pressed neither too much nor too little to engage / disengage, I have not yet been surprises by playing with, do not hsiter go through with the stroke of the pedals, in fact when we ask though his foot flat on the pedals, even in enfon ant the pedals to the end it is hard to trs press the switch, you must REALLY support the toe through much of its weight. The boost button is easy to engage / disengage a little help from the edge of the foot of the cot.

- The edition of sounds and effects is it easy?
It was neither too much nor too little knob, I would say there is everything you need for those who can use it wisely: the range (large silver button on the cot right) to find the sound of wah that will sweep the beaches wish frequency drives (respectively low, low / mdium, mdium, mdium / high, high) and one dj dgrossit research a good shot ( that without touching the boost and it rglages adj trs a good wah sound, dj slightly better than that obtained on other models) if we APRS feels NCESS to add a personal touch on the sound, it starts the boost and it RULES volume (which influences the gain, it should be understood that the "gain" has not dsign not the amount of parasite in the sound, the boost gnre do not at all, but that's what can go 0 DB 16 DB) and APRS was the four that will gauge the fawn which will ring the frquences (very aggressive, especially in the treble when you put the bottom, or trs erased when placed at a minimum). APRS we must also know and use your guitar volume and tone knobs as well as all four of his amp and the gain to really get the sound you want (no miracles in short).

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Fairly short, not REALLY about techniques, it is 8 pages in paperback format, finally knowing that THE FIRST 7 is the cover page. In the indoor Premire page was the thanks as always, with a little explanation about "why this is so special hardware", the second page contains a short explanation on the use of the wah (how to connect , What are the knobs, how to activate it) and o place (with the explanation on the Difference between the place in between or at the bottom of loop). The troisime page explains the effect of a range of knob a little fawn prcise the quatrime page explains in the same fawn what the volume knob on a time boost enabled and what the knob of four when the boost is activated with the bottom of page one indication of the power supply. The three pages dernires indicate SETTING THE clbres wah, finally, as always, no miracles, for example we are given the rglage to the sound of Hendrix, but it tells us that he be played on a Stratocaster and Marshall amp for this rglage make the sound of Hendrix.

- Your score on this?
A simple and efficient configuration, a good rgonomie that helps save time and avoid surprises, the use is rvle be a breeze without sacrificing anything. 10/10 again because there Arelle not blame him.


- Effects are they effective, suitable and adequate ralistes?
The effects are perfect, we wah sounds, round prcis a bit like the album You Had It Coming Jeff Beck, his hair the more acute the Hendrix wah then aggressive and powerful in the mediums to play the rhythm (in the John Petrucci of Dream Theater album Metropolis), it was also the Satriani sound (the song The Extremist and Always With Me, Always With You, among others), it was the sound of Kirk Hammet (all the songs on which he uses a wah), and more thundering obtained without the worries of the Vai Bad Horsie as Little Aligator when selecting out its frequencies and that the boost gauge well, but also all the sounds of wah gnral. By clean is really good too, not just "usable" but really good quality and enjoyable, we like to do funky pieces when we expect it. To make it short: we will in all styles for any type of wah sound as it uses all its hardware and knobs of the wah.

- Which instruments do you use?
I have a Mesa / Boogie DC-3 sound possde trs trs versatile (the rock of the 70 "~ 80" to the glam metal of 90 "to rock / metal current soloist), I him a Vox Bulldog Distortion al in the loop to sound more "brit" rock "and rock the 60" ~ 70 ", and I play guitar with a RX100 (old model) modified by a luthier with a PAF Pro in bridge and Air Norton in one round, get with it all sounds mighty fawn Vai, Satriani, Petrucci, Friedman ect ... and my second guitar is a Jazzmaster 62 "American Vintage Reissue home , with whom I get all the sounds and rock & roll oldies but also thanks to its incredibly pchu boost (Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Page ...).

- What are those you prfrez, you dtest?
I just REALLY sounds it produces: it is versatile, a style that will be my rock to vintage rock / metal solo 90 "and now, through all styles intermdiaire (rock sauce classical music, classic rock, glam metal, ect ...), is perfectly clean the same way I wanted, not too "bland", not too loud, you get sound as well pais that end, while still remaining dynamic and well prcis. The big plus: the sustain and feedback when I did not expect at all, pinch harmonics scream, like Satriani or when their guitars scream Go back the feedback loop are more or less easy CONTRL with my Roxane was walking alone with my Jazzmaster is a bit harder but fesable. The sustain is extra long.
What I like least? nothing in particular.

- Your score on this?
The 535Q offers a true sonic palette INTERESTED versatile, fully exploited, the sounds are of good quality trs trs. Unlike Morley with which I strongly hsit it does not sacrifice any musical style with the 535Q. It addresses both the person seeking a basic wah to season their songs lgrement that those who want a wah that requires and is able to follow in furious solos.
10/10 is perfect for this award l. However, like any part of your hardware, it dpend normment the rest: no need to make heavy metal esprer if you play with Vox or to rock & roll of 60 "if you play on a Mesa / Boogie F, everything must follow: the guitar, the amp, the pedals are using and also your style of play


- How long have you use it?
I bought it Friday, May 10, 2008.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Versatility, efficiency and sustains the Feedback is the big plus.
The least? for now I do not see.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
The Vox basic, Morley Bad Horsie (Premire of the name) and a Morley basic (wah 2 if I remember correctly the name, but I'm not sr), both kinds too, the Vox in large distos is not adapted from Morley in the large distortion is not only adapted the 535Q can go both clean, crunch, and all types of distortion, the greater the gre the largest.

- How do you report qualitprix?
Nine 145 in Jericho, the transformer + (I took a high-end 20 if y'en 6) so it's really a must in relation qualitprix.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
I would do without hsiter is the best wah pedals in the simple format of the entire market my taste. Only the rack wah is better, but we must add 1000 to get the rack wah so the choice is quickly made.

- Your score on this?
Wah for me this is perfection embodied, 10/10 because it is a no fault on the part of Dunlop.
