skaouf's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Similar to the Cry Baby, a switch under the pedal can engage or not the effect.
Position a more enjoyable gaming Morley, for me, and the possibility of block play, unlike Morley.
Less garish than the Cry baby that I had before me towards the Vox.
Wha-wha more "velvety" most progressive in the race that Cry baby happens very quickly in acute and therefore aggressive for my taste.
It also provides that the least breath Cry baby.
I've had more than 10 years, no problem despite numerous concerts and studio recordings, it works like the first day.
The model I use is the one without taking transformer, so only works with a battery.

El Bruto's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Limited but effective"
like most wahs I've tried, I found that the footswitch is hard enough to trigger
the sound is very good. no cracks typical wahs.
I find, however, the range of sounds available quite limited, some wah offer more difference between the closed and open position.
Finally, I'm not a heavy user and I think I do not really use it properly, so my advice is to be taken lightly!
in the range of sounds that issued and that plays (rocck, blues) it suits me, but I think it may be limited for metalheads ..
No, I do not redeem if it fell in the harbor, I rather go to the dunlop slash

Tiger foods's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" deception, there are differences"
I m not Roll on, everyone knows. Note that I have had two made in usa. SAR level construction (for the USA, I do not know about the news)
Well, it nya no adjustment (j also have a Dunlop535), c is simple and archi ..... I like simplicity. There might be a true bypass, LED witness and adjustment of hardness of the plate, but it suits me.
Then, clearly, it depends:
J have long regretted having sold my first vox usa a ancienned secondhand, but the components of age (early or late seventies 80 s).
Following ca, I have to search long and acquired other recent vox usa and ben are Riena see, it sounds like not, c is sour, this is not magic.
Brief, resold. Advantage to 50EUR t purchased, you sold 50EUR, nothing lost.
I put 5 for the deception, but if you find a chance to avezla 70s and the owner you cede not too expensive (my first recue a 25EUR, I have sold the furious)
Overall opinion: for I made in USA precise:
I would buy n not recent, but the old ones are excellent. It depends on the internal components. At the limit, buy one for modding, but it will eventually get back pretty expensive (Halo inductor, c ca is the secret condensos a higher tolerence and al knob old, with greater progressivity.
Anyway, finally, I have found my happiness rather with a vintage Modtone: 50EUR for a pedal with true bypass in + one, and led witness the adjustment of hardness pedale.Ca actually sounds vintage, thanks al inducer halo origin and entire + bazard.Que ask? a Q / P amazing.
J have also acquired Dunlop JH1 old in old, almost given by the seller (the cost of sending large) Vachement usee, but the circuit design and the Thomas Organ knob of origin and the old inductor whawhate death kills, although Funky Hendrix and I have also kept my 535Q for boost.

Rozwell's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A classic!"
On / Off, easier ...
The wah effect, neither more nor less.
I was serving over me, I sold it, but still a classic ...
It is very robust.
I put 7 because the original pedal does not contain a power jack 9V AC outlet which is really annoying. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a modified pedal with this socket just a big plus.
Attention USA versions only have a True Bypass!
To activate the wah must rely heavily on position (toes down), so it will not switch back with a false movement within jump.
The race is a bit short and fairly resistant (non-adjustable) so apart from making ascents / descents alternate, making a transition request to be super focused ...
With the decline of other pedals that I am not a big fan of his race.
She brought out a sound that sounds Hendrix is clear. This is also a reissue of time so that side no worries. Even without playing the pedal, just by activating and leaving the shutter sound has a beautiful grain.
But this lack of difference between the two extreme positions of the pedal, it is not very well marked.
Do not try to make him out to the big wah in marilyn manson sweet dreams or otherwise, it will not work. It is made for clean, crunch, and play blues or rock 70 '.
Caution Chinese versions (not USA) have a bad reputation on the quality of sound reproduction time. It may be useful to seek a U.S. version even pay more. Personal I live had a USA so I can not compare but this is what came out of the forums when I tried to get it.
It's been 2 years that I have, I paid € 100 used which is quite expensive but it is a U.S. version with an outlet so it is not negligible in the price. Honestly it would be at least 20 to 30 € more than the Chinese now.
The most positive point is that it beautifies wonder all the little sounds too powerful by making a little lens.
The price / quality ratio is good if you play in this record, I personally have paid dearly for the little I use it even if it is wrong.
Again, if you are looking for the Hendrix is THE pedal! Doubt.

TD12 KX's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I am less enthusiastic about its saturated, including solos. The guitar sound is clear, however well respected / saturated and there is no breath.
This remains an efficient Wah, even if better now, but more expensive ...
No need for manual, click on branch it works. Even small defect, a small LED when ON is a plus to avoid starting a riff with his wahwahé ...
A small shot of grease from time to time by removing the dust if any on the rack ...
Construction indestructible and look quite nice.
Small leather case is nice too.
Used for 7 years
Yes used wah tons of other more or less successful with more or less out of breath ... It can be part of any good guitar rig.
ElderKruegger's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Classic éfficace"
It is robust and unlike a dunlop cry baby the knob is loose after a year.
The sound is typical and should not expect a long race than a morley, we find the hot spot very easily and it is always music. Wha extreme fans go your way instead she screams in the court of rock and blues.
I used it for about 5 years before offering it to my brother in law because I went on a vox AD120VT with VC12. It works just as well at the time it is.

goguelu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Sound but no robustness"
A jack input for guitar
An output jack to the amp
Pressing the pedal forward on the switch to enable or disable the effect.
A basic wah!
No need for manual ... You just learn to use it wisely and up ...
The sound is good, that of a typical 70's wah.
I prefer it to that of a Cry Baby, it's just a matter of taste (I find that there is more range in the wah that is more "liquid").
For Funk I practice I love.
I use a Tele and my 62 Reissue Strat US Std, a real pleasure ... at first ...
I put enough because after one year and a half of use (1 Repeat / week 2H, home exercises + some concerts) it started to sputter ...
It's not too noticeable group (though) but if there is a track record that is just unbearable ... and disappointing.
The sound is good but not robust pedal (and I'm not a bully with pedals ...)
I have a JH, tried Morleys, Cry Baby, I hooked the sound of the Vox ... but I have used it a year and a half before it starts to sputter and since I only hear that 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 redeem.
Apparently I'm not the only one to have observed this phenomenon on the Chinese version of this wah, 80 € for 1 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) meets me at the moment.
I kinda broke my piggy bank but this wah is indestructible ... I think (for heavy use anything to say for a year and a half that I have).
In addition there is an effect trigger mode when you set foot on it.
In pieces that alternate wah wah and more or solo when there is the distortion or overdrive off to return to clear what tranquility ...
Today (September 2011) I saw Dunlop Wah fate of Jimmy Hendrix who have a little look "at the Vox" without gloss cover.
We should try them.
Otherwise there is the "high" range from Fulltone example but it not cost almost 300 € for a ... wah.
I can not find the quality / reasonable price given the potential lifespan of the pedal ...
Tell Mr Vox you can not make them last a little longer your wahs?
Because the sound, we would like to keep it clean as long as possible even for a little more ...
syl2412's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good value for money"
Robust metal housing, access to the battery by unscrewing the 4 screws 3 below (can be done without screwdriver).
Extremely simple, nothing to say.
I use it in my pedal board with a power supply. It works well.
I would have preferred a slightly longer stroke and a switch over "plain", see a small LED indicator on / off. Let me explain, the "click" the switch is very quiet and loud noise situation, it is not always easy to realize if the pedal has been activated or deactivated.
The wah pedal Rocktron Utopia G300 my package is better at this level. Best switch, small LED and the stroke length is adjustable.
The sound quality is very good. Perfect for rock.
I use it with an Epiphone Les Paul (Seymour Duncan), an Ibanez and a JEM555 Fame Forum IV (Seymour Duncan) on an amp Hughes & Kettner Switchblade.
The price / sound is simply excellent.
This is an excellent entry-level pedal, sounding more than correct. Not true bypass but sufficiently transparent for my taste.
If I have to buy one, I probably eyeing towards the higher end but it will unfortunately not the same budget ...

Is connected, it engages, it is wha wha, nothing could be more plug'n'play.
manufactured in the U.S., not China like the new v847a.
Alim per cell, no socket adapter.
Finishing ultra beefy, not true bypass, which eats some frequencies.
The race is not so short that some may say, and with a little practice, you can leave it sounds excellent.
A default anyway, which seems to diminish with time: if it hurts pressed, the effect may not engage, and the sound cuts completely. It makes a game scene from hell ...
The effect is perfect. I was 9 because it lacks the true bypass.
It's just one of the most musical WHAs I heard. With Paul, Start or electric piano is impeccable.
I play funk, blues, stoner rock ... vox this goes perfectly with OD808!
I tried the cry baby, it seems that you will puke on it so it's dirty (it can please: D). The morley is awfully clean and personality, if a foot was meant to be.
We will surely find better than the vox in the same style of sound (with adjustable ranges fq, boost ...) like Fulltone, rmc, wha probe of the Zvex, but at what price!
In short, I found my wha.
