Best looking pedal ever!! Disappointing tone.
DannyP 08.12.2020
I already have two Crybaby's (GCB95 and 95Q, which I love to death), but I always have had G.A.S. for a Vox wah pedal, because it has a different tonal character and it LOOKS so deliciously stylish.

I've tried them side by side for a couple of weeks. Here are my findings.

The good: the V847A's clearer/less coloured sound makes it fantastic for clean licks and 70's funk. Cool for some blues too. Looks are super sexy and retro-correct. It has a much better input buffer/bypass than the older Vox wah's (less tonesuck).

The bad: alas, it doesn't exactly sound like the warm old 60's wah pedals. It has a much thinner and treblier timbre, with muddy lows and piercing highs. Which sucks for distorted tones. Really disappointing.

To conclude: I didn't keep it. Will stick to my Crybaby's!

Edit: I just bought an older made in USA V847 (second-hand) and it sounds SO much better and warmer than the new V847a. It's fantastic with overdriven sounds!! Go for the old one!

Classic 60's Wah Sounds..
Andre_t 03.02.2014
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.

Basic, completely reliable, matter of taste.
Tubedriver 03.05.2020
Excellent quality, sturdy reliable build, a simple effective wah that does exactly what it promises for a very reasonable price. Good choice for the beginning wah-user without all the tweakin-bells-and-whistles of the more expensive models. The voicing is a little bit warmer and less poignant than the ubiquitous Dunlops, so looks and voicing for someone who wants to be a little cooler than the next guy.

VERY NICE!!! Be creative...
That tele guy 18.01.2021
The pedal is very well build, little bit heavy but at least stays on ground. If you want to change battery its very easy to do that. Just unscrew rubber legs (its possible with bare hands without screwdriver what i really like) and there you have it...
Well build classic for some hendrix tones. But you could use it as treble booster as well on full wah... If youre hendrix fan or even queen where brian may used treble booster you could buy this thing and boost some frequencies.

I could recommend that pedal, great quality, good price and old classic look as well :)
