First pedal of two and I'm impressed
Leem_ 28.10.2020
I play bass and have been looking for a wah pedal for a while after obsessing over players like Cliff Burton and effect heavy bands like Electric Wizard. While yes it sucks tone a lot, I was expecting so coming from a guitar wah, but put next to my mudhoney 2 on max settings the new tone this wah makes is incredible for psychedelic bass soloing, even just riffing on stoner metal songs is super fun with this wah. Exactly what I was looking for, something psychedelic and thrash at the same time

Not bad.

Not brilliant either, but not bad. Run from a PSU rather than battery, there is less 'tone suck', but suck tone it still does. Sensitive to location in the pedal chain. Before OD/Dist/Boost and it sounds a little flat, after, it can overpower in the treble range on all my amps.
To alter the 'range' of the sweep, merely alter where in the pot the sweep occurs. Simple instructions are readily available, but in short, jiggle the rack position on the pinion. Easy job and reversible.
Activation whilst standing is easy. Sitting down to play, less so. At least it can't easily be switched in and out, it does require some pressure.
Sturdy case/treadle construction. No worries about being heavy footed, it'll cope. Easy to modify.
For an occaisional wah user, this'll do. For someone who wants to wah a lot, there are many better options out there. Still, it is inexpensive and does the job quite well after the sweep range tweak.
Dropped a mark as it is now noisy. Servisol to the rescue, but the pot is already crackly to the point of annoyance as I'm use a fair bit of wah now.

Pretty Good

My first wah pedal ever. Not as great as i expected, but it does the job. It has a good sounding wah effect and it works well together with distortion.

However, it changes the tone drastically even when not activated, and I totally don't like that. It also has a very "sensitive" area around input and output ports and it makes a loud noise when you tap on them.

All in all, I would recommend this pedal, it is cheaper than most, but I have not tried others. This is a good buy to get started on learning how to use the wah and expanding your pedal collection! :)

Vox V845 Wah

This is my first Wah pedal and I love it. There was a small problem but it can be solved very easily.

This wah has no knobs or anything like that, you cannot adjust the tone of it but you dont need to, it sounds perfect the way it is. I mainly use it to get a Kirk Hammett-like wah tone for my guitar solos but you can also use it to get a nice funky clean tone or anything.

The problem I had with this wah is that the potentiometer inside the pedal is completely exposed, there's almost nothing that would cover it up so dust can get into it and if it does it will make a scratchy sound every time you use the pedal.
I used some WD40 to clean the potentiometer and I completely covered it up with lots of tape. Now the scratchy noise is completely gone and the pedal works perfectly. Other than that this pedal is perfect.
