- Wahwah effect as the name implies
- But the pure analog handmade
- An input device and an output amplifier, an AC input
- Access to the 9V battery by unscrewing the 4 feet of the pedal (no damage to the door)
- True bypass

UTILIZATION

We put her foot on the board, is pressed forward and switch snaps ca
the switch is sensitive but adjustable ...

SOUND QUALITY

Striking effect! Reminds me of the old vox 60 years that I was ready!
It really is a replica of the Clyde.
Listen to "Emmaretta" Deep Purple ... That's exactly right
I use a Fender Stratocaster and a US Hot Rod ... on clean channel as the drive ... with or without treble boost
married ca great.
on the other hand with my Godin LG (double coil) is less beautiful ... the wah is more discreet .... there is less sweep
damage ....

Note: the switch is quite noisy ... When the plate of the wah comes to a stop in the treble it lightly press the switch back that emits a bed (mechanical noise ca .. no consensus in the amp). BUT: this noise fades sharply with the use of the wah ... Geoffrey Teese preferred to "invest" in a more robust switch .. but louder ...
Anyway, when you hear the wah switch quickly we forget!

OVERALL OPINION

I've had one month and I'm really a fan of his ... I had several crybaby (Jimi Hendrix, and GCB95 535Q) and a vox 60 years ... is the one that gives me the most satisfaction with the Vox!
Please note it has nothing to do with a crybaby ... less garish ... and for those who find that it does not sound better than a crybaby I would say: open your ears or maybe you do not know well you use a wah .. nothing nasty in there but not enough to activate ... ca does not play alone ..
the price is quite big (235euros) but ... when you love ... ;-)
this choice I would do without hesitation!
