ihshan's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very good wah"

Rocktron Black Cat Moan Wah
nothing to add to features, on paper it is flawless. Not bad, adjustments and bonuses boost.
When it was ready we see immediately that it is made to last, it looks very solid.


Ben is a wah, should not have done polytechnic to use.
nice to have a lot of settings, ideal when they had to forge his own sound.
I reproach him a race can be a short hair, but I really nitpick


Very good sound quality. This is just my second wah, before I had a Jimmy Hendrix signature that I had not kicked at all, and I was quickly sold.
A tiny breath without moan a little more because with the boost. I have sufficient knowledge of the wah on the market to compare, but it seems they all blow more or less.
The three modes are all friendly wah, even the low mode. I mainly use the normal mode, I find the sound richer. The classic mode is also more focused on acute, then it's a matter of personal taste.
The effect moan a little skeptical at first left me. Already specify that activates and deactivates the foot relatively easily. Depending on the setting will be felt a boost of gain, you need to know to make the assay fault effect completely draft. I preferred to start the wah without moan, then depending on the situation, I found him where he could use to express themselves. not really necessary, but not a totally useless gadget. but it's true that it really changes the sound of the wah as conceived.
I was afraid that the start and stop of the wah is difficult to live, I had very bad memories of dunlop about it, but ultimately not.


short, a good wah, with my little experience in this field.
Bought secondhand for cheap, it is very much above the dunlop jimmy Hendrix that I had before.
Good point for the battery cover very accessible. I had also seen a vox, but having to change the batteries unscrew me clearly cooled.
For use as I do, it suits me perfectly.

Rocktron Black Cat Moan Wah
All important info has been said below. I would simply say that the build quality is the rendezvous is stronger than a Cry Baby and as robust as Morley!
I recommend the use of batteries or provide a good supply of pedals (I use a T-Rex power 5x9V)
In / Out, plug and play!


Global settings are simple and accessible at the foot with respect to the activation of moan. For the rest, the knobs are large and clear. 3 different modes and Moan who rule in his corner. The effect locks fully depressing the pedal disengages the same way. In the old way Vox. No return of the pedal with a spring, everything is manual!
The magnitude of the effect is good and generous, sensitive to foot it responds well and quickly. Fun!
I used the automatic activation wahs (Morley Tremonti and CryBaby GCB95Q) with spring return for disengagement, so I struggled to get used to this type of operation more rustic! I have never used in concert.
A manual? What manual? Boarf is a wah: tamper with it and test. This is an effect of feeling after all!


Level sound is super clean and the 3 modes are radically different! Honors modes Classic and Bass (bassists are happy beings: it swinge A LOT!). The moan is capricious: it uses the wah to lead it quickly becomes unmanageable and too aggressive! I use it mostly for clean or crunch sound effect as much fuzz and wah gives it its typical styles of rock to Three Doors Down.
Small flat for the use of the wah clean: it modulates the volume, which made it feel playing with a volume knob and you hear nothing when the wah is in serious ... In the end I use the wah in two ways:
- Classic Wah effect over a lead slightly distorted. Is approached his Vox and the effect is both groove and velvety. It grows well and it waaaaaaaaah treble.
- Effect + classic moan over a clean crunchy: wah brings the distortion necessary to lead and that is the whole point of the germanium fuzz board! Monstrous groove!


I for 1 year but I use it just because I find it quite exotic and impractical to live when you have the habit of wahs "intuitive" as Morley Cry or to enable / disable auto. You have to push the wah effect to cut back sharply, this is not musical so it is necessary to lower the volume from the guitar at the same time to do a fade. The other alternative is to use a volume pedal or provide a switchable loop. I have not tested the wah in the effects loop, I still live branch.
Otherwise, the effect is of good quality and interesting by pannel settings. It responds well, you just learn to master the damn cat character has a Siamese cross Carthusian gutter!

Rocktron Black Cat Moan Wah
Two effects in this Wah:

Wah (no kidding!) With three modes: Normal (type Cry Baby), Classic (Type Vox) and Bass.

Moan: A boost of mdiums a little special, we can assimilate a block Wah combines a boost. But the effect is like nothing really known. Its main intrt my opinion is to boost the sound to pass a lead, it seems difficult to use as the main disto.

Level connections, one between an output and a 9V (Note that a cell can be used with a hatch under the pedals, easy to open.)


The grip is quite simple, for the wah effect in any case: mode is selected, we dclenche effect with the switch located under the pedals of expression (like a good old Cry Baby ) and go.

The effect is moan a little more difficult master, but by feeling a little one arrives quickly rglages satisfactory. Two knobs allow the rgler: Moan (depth effect) and Gain. A switch on the cot situ of the pedals can dclencher (which requires the caller pedals if you do not want Dranger his set every time!).

Finally, small malignant dtail, both effects are usable sparment, but a small switch is used to make the moan of the declenchment dclenchement of Wah, which makes it possible to share the two effects in m me time.


Question sound effects are wah trs good, everyone enough for the typical choice is not a gadget, and all used in contexts DIFFERENT. The switching effect is accompanied by a slight gain boost, which allows to gain momentum but may be a little Gnant for those looking for crystal clear sound.

The effect moan is more difficult to use, but it gives a color trs particulire sound, and a boost apprciable to move from a crunchy rhythm a frenzied solo ... on the other hand, in his clear, increasing the gain longer playing on the volume on the distortion, attention to the cards!

The use of the two effects together gives about the results convincing trs. The ide las conceptaurs the pedals at the top had no doubt: it solo as the Black Cat offers the best of itself!


I use the Black Cat for almost a year, and I routinely congratulates. For a modest price, it combines a good wah and a boost trs typ which can give a lot of characters to the sound. In comparison with other models, I cot range of Cry Baby and Vox (even if the dynamics are lgrement worse), well above the Boss PW-10 . Nothing against a see Morley level purity of sound, but that's not what we're looking forcment with Wah-Wah.

Rocktron Black Cat Moan Wah
I will continue it's already been said.


Below is a good wah pedal, not difficult to use, we selected the type of wah with the knob left and sounds!, Right after the Moan effect is more difficult: it has a knob 2 "moan" and "moan gain" is a weird set ...


Level 3's a choice between wah is not bad, it helps to have a cry baby its type or the type Vox wah is after the other for bass. The sound is a bit loud crybaby to my taste, I have compared a vox wah has the Rocktron, sounds very close to her.
Listed moan, a kind of overdrive at which adjust the gain and low tone, but the sound is still quite cold and noisy, I find the tone control is not wide enough.


I acquired this pedal early July, I use it in repeats and in concert, she fulfilled her role very well as a wah wah there is nothing wrong side of this however I think we would have could avoid the effect moan, and finally it is my opinion.
For € 80 on ebay I think it's a fair price, € 135 parcontre store I find the price a little abused, both take a 535Q for that price. Rocktron is a good brand for a price slightly cheaper than the brand leader, so I think I can remake that choice.
