    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    The Wah-Wah is excellent! It offers sounds on different frequencies it scans.
    Very convenient to use: an input, an output, and a pressure foot after the pedal is enough to trigger the effect.

    UTILIZATION

    General configuration very easy!
    If you are going to walk with us, and therefore the bottom of the pedal sounds are obtained with low frequencies; and vice versa.
    I will not deny that I did not even read the manual, because I immediately connected to two inputs, the power-and the music!
    Editing sounds is also very easy.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects of this pedal are excellent. I use this pedal with all my guitars, anyway it always sounds the fire god!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this pedal for 2 years now, and I'm very happy with me being procured. This really is a great pedal with monstrous effects!
    What I like the most is to play a note in the bass, then switching to high frequencies by pushing the pedal; it gives an effect like "wooooouuuuueeeeeaaaaah".
    I find this magical effect!

    An inlet, an outlet, a boss-type power supply, space for a battery.
    A cover imitation leather black and white that I do not use but pleased when the box is opened.

    UTILIZATION

    It takes a bit of time before taking the hand (or rather foot) to engage the effect the first time since the click is enough "far" in the pedal stroke. On the other hand, it avoids inadvertent manipulation. No volume control or anything, so we use is not be easier! The race is against rather short which makes use of delicate pedal: a slight movement of the foot significantly change the sound.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I am very divided on this point. I find it very natural and beautiful clean sound, but when you push the gain is lost in translation and the pedal becomes strangely shrill. I do not use more than the funky rhythm, I find it excellent!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year now. It's a bit the opposite of a Cry Baby: while Dunlop is more comfortable on distorted leads, Vox fits perfectly on rhythmic clear sound.
    I do not regret this purchase. For its price it is a good wha-wha entry level. on the other hand I change surely a more versatile pedal.

    This is a wah that I have since 2006. If you do not have a chain effect and you interleave between the guitar and amp, the sound is quite acceptable. on the other hand in a pedalboard in gondola or after overdrive, this pedal even cut bouffera treble and once switched on will not make any distortion or fuzz. Therefore, unusable.

Therefore, unusable.

    Based on this observation, two solutions came to my mind: 1. get rid of as soon as possible, 2. Put your hands in the bowels. I chose the latter and, for that matter, I began all over again because of the poor quality of the original components and the virtual impossibility of mods on the circuit (unless surgeon )
    I started reading tutorials (easy, there are everywhere), find a clone PCB high quality (GP Electronics), and then selecting the components most quality possible - within the limits of reasonable inducer Halo knob ICAR, condos Panasonic metal film, Switchcraft jacks open, Carling DPDT switch "long shaft", BC109C transistors, resistors + Royal Ohm trimmers to easily change the sound settings. Attention, it is not easy to get the PCB instead of the previous, because screw locations are not the same as the U.S. model. It was therefore necessary to tinker a little / a lot, but in the end, a few hours on this success are greatly rewarded: First off on the sound of the guitar is finally respected, this is the least of it. Then the switch is much easier to engage, even sitting. Then the sound: it is a very vintage color, but with more "vocal" than Chinese, even on an overdrive well supported (it is not perfect yet with a fuzz but there is no comparison there with initial boiling!). Only downside, the BC109C I generate a lot of breath. In future, I intend therefore to test other transistors, and associate a buffer output to have a better behavior with a fuzz.

    Conclusion: If I put a note in the original version, I would put 5/10 to the side of recyclable product, but honestly I can not do better :-)

    Vox V847A Wah Wah Pedal, made in china models of PCBs.
    Alim by 9V battery or external power supply such bosses (not included).

    No knobs internal multi-switch, boost and other "gadgets" in my eyes, it's plug and play as I like.

    UTILIZATION

    Well it's simple, you press fully to engage, play, and we rappuie to stop the effect!
    No need for manual so!
    The effect is not too hard to engage, and the race is short what can be an advantage or a disadvantage depending on people to see.
    The pedal looks good externally robust.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Ben, we must recognize that it comes out okay.
    It was still a well-typed his wah I find the old and it's fun because what I was looking for.
    I preferred at the time instead of a Cry Baby GCB95 tried at the same time, simply because the Vox seemed less harsh and warmer, more musical and it feels even more clean.

    It is nickel for the funk of course, for use in or with fuzz distortion I will vote no, not playing in distortion with wah (I like way, I really prefer the wah on the clean) and having no fuzz, but without going into the wild stuff you should be fine, again for the old blues-rock-hard 70's ;)

    Its biggest drawback is the integrated buffer and reliability over time, and a small volume difference between the sound effect without the engaged and with (see below).

    But the sound is really not bad for the price already, compared to the base Cry I find. So I put 8.

    OVERALL OPINION

    So I for 2 years.

    This is a good model for its price for a first wah (good for € 90 as I see sometimes it starts to get abused limit I guess, but for me it's going to new € 70), although for more modern sounds and metal it will not his thing (this is clearly the sound to the old Vox wah).
    The advantage is its price and the sound issued.

    For cons:
    - The buffer playing its role as buffer preserves the shine of course, but it literally eats your bass. It gets along well with A / B test.
    - There is also a small increase in volume when compared to the snaps his "dry", which can be both embarrassing for group play useful to pierce the mix with the wah (but when you n 'are not supposed to be in the lead with wah, you can make big eyes once engaged!).
    - Finally, as to the reliability, there is his biggest weakness I could find, mine does not crackles despite its 2 years old, but the switch has already messing with (I switched, and presto, more volume, sound mute) while in terms of number of hours of play I can see it as new as far as I am very careful. Inserts jacks are so-so, it seems that the knob crachouille quickly enough, for now at least on that side I was lucky!

    I will then put in notes 7 overall balance between quality defects, since we can not get 7.5 and I find the 8/10 a little too nice ;)
    So, following my worries switch that shit I nabbed the V846HW, true bypass and with quality components. In theory all the advantages of this V847A without its drawbacks, so what are the top!
    But hey, we can advise for a first wah for qqun who has not a big budget and looking for a vintage 70's rather his or funky wah clean, nag for stuff, fans everywhere trimpots etc., go your way, it's plug and play in entry-level price that will do the job in a first time, neither more nor less.

    The sound is good, that of a typical 70's wah.
    I prefer to that of a Cry Baby, it's just a matter of taste (I find that there is more amplitude in the wah it's more "liquid").

    I put enough because after a year and a half of use (a rehearsal / week 2H, home exercise + some concerts) it started to sputter ...
    It's not too noticeable in a group (though) but if it's a track record is just unbearable ... (And disappointing.
    The sound is good but not robust pedal (and I'm not a brute with the pedals ...)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have a JH, tried the Morleys, the Cry Baby, I caught the sound of the Vox, but ... I used one and a half before it starts to sputter and since I only hear it when I play ...
    In addition I have added a felt pad for engagement / disengagement is done properly after a year ...
    But I like the sound so that I almost buy one.
    Apparently I'm not the only one who observed this phenomenon on the Chinese version of this wah, 80 € for one year and a half of fun and frustration I finally abstained.
    So I bought another more versatile wah: Wowee Wah G-Lab (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOrUS8iGsT4) which satisfies me for now.
    I just broke my piggy bank but this wah is indestructible I think ... (For intensive nothing to say for a year and a half I have).
    In addition there is a way to trigger the effect when you set foot on it.
    In pieces that alternate wah wah and more or alone when there is the distortion or overdrive off light to return to what tranquility ...
    Today (September 2011) I saw lots of Wah Dunlop Jimi Hendrix with a little look "at the Vox 'hood without gloss.
    They should try.
    Otherwise there is the "top" class at Fulltone for example, but it cost close to € 300 ... for a wah.
    I can not find the quality / good price given the potential lifespan of the bike ...
    Tell Mr Vox you can not make it last a little longer Wahs your Chinese?
    Because the sound, we would like to keep it clean as long as possible even for a little more ...

    UTILIZATION

    SOUND QUALITY

    Well, that's where you have to be objective:

    YES, this is a made in China, so what? I live in the US, I know their industry well enough, stop the myth "made in US" ... they are not the last to scrounge and where they can outsource the labor!

    YES, the components (some at least) are the CMS, which, whatever the purist, does not make m * rde, SMD components are theoretically more stable.

    Yes, it sounds "less", or rather different from its precursor States. And again, we must stop "the best vintage was" widespread ... Some swear by it even if it is not objective at all, and it gets heavy. The ears are the only judges, and some find that base it sounds like they want, others do not, period! If she does not like it, you do not buy ...

    Still, the base is there.

    Less "noisy" that GCB95 (CryBaby), less typical "vintage" a US, a Clyde McCoy or a Buddha, it remains in his Vox.

    Tones "warm" rather excessive in the extreme (low and high). The range of use ("sweep") is large enough, even if it is far from a Colorsound.

    This makes a good base cheap (paid $ 50 for US at the time) for the modder.
    If so, once again pace the critics, it is entirely possible provided we know how to handle a soldering iron and so conscientious that we (the average level in electronics is required, I recommend to beginners).

    1 / Change to true bypass: 3PDT switch ($ 7 for a good quality), some wire and some resistors ($ 2). Opportunity to ask an LED.
    2 / Changing the sweep condo: I asked a personal rotocontacteur to select among four condos with one to effect a volume pedal ($ 8).
    3 / Change the potentiometer by a feeble type ICAR (between $ 10 and $ 15 on eBay)
    4 / change the inductor for a home with more Apple products, for my part a Whipple made out to The Vox specs of 67 ($ 25 on eBay).
    5 / Change of transistors Q1 and Q2, for BC109B type "low gain" ($ 12 for the pair of NOS).

    (Looking well on eBay, you can really drive prices, including transistors and switch 3PDT)

    Total: $ 64 for a full mod.
    If we add the original price of $ 50, we arrive at a wah very nice for $ 114. Still cheaper than US market Used + mods (true-bypass, the inductor can be changed, the transos, condos, etc.). Or any other "drop-in kit" which must be added the base price of the wah.

    Link to the mods:
    http://www.chewingoncrayons.com/2009/01/vox-v847-reissue-mods-part-1.html

    Link kit knob, switch and inductor:
    https://www.ebay.com/sch/indoblitydo/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686

    I put 6 for no wah mods, because the correct sounds but lacks character.
    9 after mods.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 years, 6 months moddée completely (the true-bypass and condos sweep was made three months after purchase).

    She met moddée not without being a great warrior. Now that I modified according to what I wanted, she never leaves my PB.
