Vox V848 Clyde McCoy Wah Wah
Classic wah tones. Pure and simple.. at least the closest available using Fasel inductors.. maybe not the EXACT same tone as the original Clyde, but certainly the closest you can get without running the boutique route at about 100+ bucks more.
This is a pure analog device.. pivoting rocker pedal.. True Bypass, shiny chrome.. no modeling,chips or silicone...
No editing options.. Put it on the floor. Step on it. Click the button. Wiggle it back and forth. Yay! It's a wah wah.

UTILIZATION

Um.. no manual necessary... no editing options... see characteristics. My kid can figure this out. (of course.. he already thinks he knows everything... so.....

SOUND QUALITY

Very sweet. The closest to classic tones available without spending at least $100.00 more. Great midrange manipulation within the lower ranges... it gets a bit screechy in the upper registers. The treble range becomes a bit tinny... almost similar to the high speed pitch shift on a Whammy effect... this can be neat, or annoying. Depending on the application. The best feature of this effect is the fact that it is not a watered down Morley effect.. with virtually no sweep, and tasteless generic flavor ( I cannot speak for the Vai or Tremonti wahs.. just their basic offerings. Never played the signature wahs..) And it is stronger than a Crybaby...(although from my understanding, this is built in the same facility) The recent addition Crybaby Classic also uses a Fasel inductor.. so.. the tones may be similar.. and at only $99.00.. it IS a worthy consideration... unless you need to see chrome on the floor. Whatever does it for you..
I have owned mine for almost 2 years.. and the pots are beginning to get scratchy. Yuck. Used with Les Pauls, Strats,Teles... running thru a Voodoo Lab Preamp, Carvin T100 poweramp, Digitech GSP2101 (for effects) into 2 closed back cabs with Eminence Cannabis Rex speakers. (more on those later
This wah provides realistic, classic tones heard on your favorite albums. As with any instrument.. the more you practice with it... improve your technique and level of control, the greater the sonic reward. It's sweep can be construed as a limitation.. in the fact that it gets TOO trebly, but this can be relegated to a control issue... when you become accustomed to the sweep, it is great to have the "gas in the tank". You may not need it.. or use it.. but it's there!

OVERALL OPINION

Using this for a bit over 2 years. Love the classic wah tones and True Bypass. For years, the only options where tone draining washed out Morley or Crybaby options..To be truthful, the boutique guys like Fulltone, RMC,Budda, etc did everyone a favor. They raised the bar for quality. The wah had become an almost passe' effect.. brought back to life by the likes of Slash and Joe Satriani..(thanks guys!)... hence, the demand for better quality bypass... and a more pronounced effect.
I don't like the fact that it is getting scratchy...I will investigate my options and try some contact cleaner. We'll see.. should do the trick!
I find the value to be acceptable in the $150.00 price range.. although, being that I am not exactly a "gear snob" I would probably opt for the Crybaby Classic.. which I believe is also True Bypass and equipped with the Fasel inductor as well...At about $50.00 less. Other considerations would be the new Morley George Lynch model wah.. or perhaps the Vai Bad Horsie stuff, although these may not cut it for classic tones.

Vox V848 Clyde McCoy Wah Wah
Input / output, AC switch 9volt standard boss trigger true bypass (the sound happens when there is no plile or adapter connected) not hatch for the battery so you need a screwdriver and unplug the guitar is imperative to preserve battery.
Note remains 10 because if you plug your guitar plug on nuclear power to your pedals as it avoids the recycling of batteries. However, the consumption of this pedal is 0.54 mA, ie from 10 to 20 times less distortion than analog and 100 to 120 times less than a small digital delay is nearly 500 hours (twenty days without disconnect) with a good alkaline. 5 or more 6 volt battery weak enough and the sound becomes even softer (it's the same with a tube screamer)

UTILIZATION

The switch takes two seconds of thought to its operation and the pedal travel remains flexible and is ideal in the position where it is left as the dunlop sharing the same box solid, stable and indestructible

SOUND QUALITY

The difference with the classic 847 Vox reside in the adapter plug and the true bypass "inducer" major component of the effect. here it is the "red Fasel" found on the reissue of the "Dunlop Crybaby Classic" sound generated by these two pedals is very similar and you have to be fussy to make a difference, however, for using the cry Baby Basic Morley then I can assure you that we are not in the same vein with the vox. The amplitude is deep and warm the midrange fuse in a steady to finish in the acute howler that require good accoutumence to master. This effect needs to be used sparingly in saturated mode as it literally scisaille head (see Hendix J) but is bright and sparkling mode rivals the best phaser or flanger pedal for some people to know the tempo (see Dave Stewart )

OVERALL OPINION

Forget the vox 847 which is only a cheap copy of the original Vox. The Clyde McCoy is almost double but it was amply justified by RMC copied or Fulltone at prices over $ 230 so far to the original.
this version is not sold in France must therefore be ordered to United States for $ 150 plus $ 20 ou25 transport suitable sites and ten days of waiting.
the dunlop classic is imported so you can try it and come away with but now if you want to find your Wah in black on the scene with the full face SUIT there that cover the chrome with her vox logo does.
it's around 10 because it is the best reference if ...?

Vox V848 Clyde McCoy Wah Wah
Like all whawha with a connection for external power supply (it is convenient and does not eat bread).
The highlight: A true bypass pedals which makes this a whawha respectful of your grain.

UTILIZATION

Simple and effective ... is connected, is pressed, and send!

SOUND QUALITY

What could be better? It sounds, it lives, it breathes throughout its course. Below, the clumps are not low, is pressed, it goes through frquences mdium down a bit nasal and charming, we're going down the treble perants Jimmy Page, one returns, it spins in a gentle flow frequency drives all sduisantes and we are surprised to modulate the most natural, as if not silent with V848 at the end of the foot. In short, we forget what we do with his ankle and it is free.
The grain and color are the ones you have in the head and heart the instant you play the note ... There is a sense to do everything and have opened an important door to crativit. Fantastic!

OVERALL OPINION

I use a 65 Deluxe reverb.
In dpart, I wanted a Fulltone Clyde and ... I read the opinion of "the head" who convinced me and I confirm the grade of 10/10. I have not tried the Fulltone, but I do not see what it could offer more, apart from the price (90 euros more, as the RMC).
I could get it in Germany (Ibbenbren) for 171 Euros.

Overall opinion ... I think I've said it all ... It sounds!
