What are the effects or types of effects available?
What technology is used? (Analog, digital, lamp ...)
Are they editable? Via an editor Mac / PC?
What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
Is it a rack or rack-mount model?
Well, I will not dwell on that, everyone knows what a wah, I'm going to compare it to those I know, that I had two vox 847 USA made and a Dunlop 535Q.
It is two times lighter than the above models, while having the box a bit more thick, nothing to say, it looks solid, it must be a aliage aluminum. Otherwise, the ribs are identical to Dunlop and Vox, the same housing.
It is true bypass and features an LED activation witness, 9V socket and a screw to adjust the hardness of the pedal.
Regarding the electronics: broadly, Halo inductor and potentiometer vintage type (Alpha 100Kh) for a typical vintage sound, as is called the pedal. Wiring very clean inside.
Personal opinion: ras, the LED, the adjustment of hardness and true Bypass tray: good points.
The general configuration is it simple?
Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Small detail, the switch is hard to press. As usual, I take a rubber damping plate and add a marker on the switch.
Bizzare: pedals side by side have exactly the same movement, but to use the Modtone seems to have a race, I mean escalation doubled compared to the Dunlop (the latter Ouaké by mid race)
3. SOUND QUALITY
The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Which instruments do you use?
Which ones you prefer, you hate?
That's what we intéresse.Pour give you an idea, I'm looking for some sweetness wah filter but also marked one side at a time, with a vocal side too.
I wanted a vintage wah typed without having to pay a handsome sum.
I admit regret my old Vox stupidly sold. I had bought another made in the USA, but it was no longer the same components (inductor, capacitor and knob), disappointed, it was quickly sold, but this time no regrets there.
Next came a Dunlop 535Q that I have always meis it lacks that little something that I can explain. While it excels in certain sounds, but good.
Seeking to taste mouth, a halo inductor wah equipped, there is of course all makes a bit upscale clyde thing, and other handmade, but rather high price. Then I fell on Modtone (read positive reviews on this brand right here). Anyway, I came across an ad for fifty euros, I try the case.
Well, I must admit that I'm pretty happy. The pedal is well made (on their website, they explain wanting to combine the qualities desired for a pedal of this type at low cost). The features are good, more improvements, as explained above.
What can I say, it sounds really good to me, actually with this vintage flavor, although vocal progressive and surprisingly well in both its clear that saturation. The band is really focused. Funky mode, there really ouâk sometimes lacking in some pedals and filtering it reacts very precise nor too dull back, not too garish (I hate loud wahs) forward. In short, it comforts me a lot of my old vox even if I do not despair grab another one of these days.
Very pleasing to the ear and without high-brainer, because his tone and his race adapt and adopt very quickly. The 535Q certainly offers a great variety of sounds, but it complicates somewhat. I tried to reproduce a sound close to it with the Dunlop, but this is less progressive in its course and shallower level sound. I would say that 535 works well in full saturation, but that is more pleasant sounds clear and small soft saturation. I am very pleasantly surprised.
4. NOTICE GLOBAL
How long have you been using?
What is so special that you like most and least?
Did you try many other models before buying it?
How do you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Nearly 3 weeks, always compared to the Dunlop 535Q and I always reference my head (old vox847 USA)
Value for money, given the options is packed, it will take min.3X more for a great brand.
I am pleasantly surprised as I was saying.
Few people know apparently.
A good alternative to be tested.
I must say that I was looking for a long time, wah and overdrive that is one of my bases with the delay (if nothing else), I have a pretty good idea of what I want and that it There response rather favorably.
Saw a picture of a BBE, it looks like quite actually.
For the price, I would do this choice.
As usual, some might be put off by Chinese manufacturing, the lightweight chassis or the brand very popular.
For my part, a pedal that will just sit on my pb.
I have not tested wahs premium over 200EUR., But I advise those who intend to buy a new vox input range to test it for the same price, you will get more and better.
