As soon as I plugged this Wah pedal into my VOX VR30 amp it was very clear that it has a beautiful classic tone, and put me in mind of a lot of classic Wah solos that have that nasal driving sound. It definitely reminds me of the solo on White Room. VOX are marketing this as a classic 'reissue' of their original wah pedals and I would agree with that. The unit itself is sturdy and feels like it will last, with strong metal construction and heavy rubber fittings. Jack inputs feel secure and the input and output jacks don't feel wriggly like on some pedals, jacks insert with a reassuring click and stay put. Comes with a nice vinyl carry case, which some might find feels 'cheap' but I find retro! The only drawback is a short travel of the pedal from open to closed - another few millimeters would make subtle wah effects easier and more intuitive. It doesn't have controls for Q etc of some wah pedals but I prefer simplicity in amps and pedals so that suits me - its tone I'm after without fidgeting and this pedal has plenty of that. Recommended for a classic 60's wah tone.
I have an original JEN Cry Baby which I bought secondhand(and not cheap,even back then)in the mid 80's.....reliable,sounds great but suddenly I'm advised its become quite collectible..am I sure I want to using it for small-time gigs in dodgy venues? So I bought this Vox (purely because it looked most like it with the chrome top)...and was pleased to find it sounds like it too....I certainly can't tell them apart by sound but blindfolded I'd possibly know them apart because the VOX is a little lower and more comfortable underfoot... Replacing batteries is a feet off job but thats part of the time warp....just leave one top corner foot in place,loosen a little and its no problem! A lovely sounding and retro looking Wah,very good stuff from Vox on this!¬
