The Fuzz-Wah came out originally in 1968. In the era of fuzz and wah are honored, including Jimi Hendrix. But this wah has never had much success. It is, however, remains the Fender catalog, in one form or another until 1984.
Fashion vintage Fender conveyance to be brought current this pedal since 2008. Will it be more successful today? And besides what is it worth?

Manufacturing and finishing quality. This is a large and heavy pedal. The chrome finish is superb.

UTILIZATION

The configuration is simple. Here no rglages multiple.

The pedal is really very large compared all the models known wah Vox, Morley, ... and flip-flop thereby presents a fairly debilitating inertia. It takes muscle to move this lever and it is difficult to impart rapid movements or specific on. The plateau Controls the gain of the fuzz, located on the scale, does not help the imposing size and jouabilit pnible. Controller are both sensitive and specific on cons.

The other is the default switch to activate the wah: placed on its side and not on the scale. Impractical: we must engage the wah and then set foot on the rocker to play. on the other hand that allows the pre-rgler wah on a "sweet spot" and activate any time without having to look again. A function "stuck wah quite rare (I only know the Ibanez Weeping Demon wah, Morley George Lynch Dragon II and Danelectro Triple L offering this feature, apart from some self-wahs good sr).

For the cons contrle gain fuzz through a sliding plate disposed on the rocker is well thought out. This allows you to change the gain up all the time, especially at the same time as you play the wah: Perfect for solos! A real good find.

ENFI the possibility to route to the wah fuzz or vice versa can also get the sounds and effects wahs DIFFERENT enough: this possibility is well known but indict a wah with distortion intgr e (routing as the most wah to distortion), apart from some well-known multi-effects (the Line 6 POD X3, for example), but this is an area much Different.

Despite all this pedal is very pleasant to play thanks to its multiple possibilities, if one is satisfied with a wah Modr.

SOUND QUALITY

One would expect, the result is vintage sound: years 60-70.
The wah is also quality and fuzz. The ability to modulate the gain of the fuzz foot while playing the wah makes a real plus: trs intressant for solos including a beginners clean and dirty fuzzy end, everything is possible. We have fun and play the wah and the fuzz about the results to simultaneously spectacular and even psychedelic.

Let sincre: the wah is good, the fuzz is good, but none is outstanding. By combining the two cons and Manir which we can play together and really indict intressant.

OVERALL OPINION

So we have a pedal in the late 60s, whose t succsa confidential, but which presents a intrtrel. Is it enough to finally find its audience? No sr.
The wah is isolated in good quality but not exceptional. Moreover, its use is impractical because of the inertia of the rocker switch and the activation of the ct.
The intrt this pedal just so the fuzz. Of quality but also acquire a contrle gain via a turntable and arranged on the scale of the wah. What fun solos on blues or rock. Many gaming possibilities, dcuples by the possibility of routing to the wah fuzz or vice versa.

Finally, a very good wah, DIFFERENT, but also quite unique because of its two major defects. That may be precisely this lack of versatility that has road map to success. A fuzz-wah first. A wah or a fuzz possibly.
