Wah wah analog heavy and sturdy. Several modes (automatic and standard) and three knobs to adjust the bandwidth and swept frequencies. Pedal without rack and has a setting with a large screwdriver to adjust the flexibility of removable tray (I have not found effective). Powered by 9V (if the electrical system is good, no buzz). Jack in, jack out and roll youth!


At the configuration it goes, if you knows a little in frequency can be tweaking knobs (no drastic changes anyway), if any is left straight, and it's still a kind of wha. Where the use is not really practical, is that normal mode is made between the tap switch is on the side of the plate and the latter, and in the other mode, it is like an idiot if you want to leave wha triggered simply filter the sound, or even if you want to attack from above the race, we're fucked too. Therefore not practical at all to me.


After regarding the sound is very clean, very modern (except its clear where you need to be cautious if it saturates very quickly). This is not true bypass, it's pretty clear, however, depending on the settings of the switching effect we will capture. It also works for the bass (although I do not like wha on bass), and keyboards which I think is more in place on a guitar. In short, I think it lacks warmth and musicality, it will be at ease for shredders and other virtuosos, currently this wicked sharp side which displeases me (regardless of settings). Then again station saturation, suddenly it's good for fat sounds, possibly the modern funk, but it is more complicated for the rest. Nevertheless it remains a good effect in its category that is not very open to me forever.


I used 2 or 3 years so I know it well, I like its weight and strength, but I sold it for a cry baby, and then I came back on a morley which also combines the volume and strengths of both. I do not know the price now, but back then 120 bullets for it I found it a bit expensive.

There are very good things, but we must render unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar, its use is limited musically, everything is too clean, and as often with Ibanez was no personality (and ultimately musicality).
