Picked up the PW-10 V-Wah as a Christmas gift from my family. Messed around with it a little, didn't quite understand it, and put it back in the box for several months to collect dust. Man was that a mistake! After messing around with an old analog Morley wah for awhile, I decided to take this thing back out of the box and give it another go.Simply put, this thing is MASSIVE unless you're an analog snob that hates anything digital or solid state. The sturdy, all metal construction feels like it would survive an explosion and still work. A good mix of different effects to choose from, including some that emulate tremolo chorus and even some decent talkbox effects (wah-ing for different vowel sounds. Obviously a real bona fide talkbox would whoop this thing in that respect). The ability to save and switch between settings is pretty great. Also, this thing decently models a handful of Boss distortion pedals - I own an MT2 MetalZone, and this thing sounds dead on, albeit with less ability to fine tune.Bottom line: If you only want one single wah sound, an analog Wah like a Morley or a Cry Baby can compete with and slightly outclass the V-Wah. But if you want a few hundred dollars worth of wah's in one pedal along with good distortion, additional effects, and the functions that digital allows? Stop thinking about it and buy this thing.I play on a few different axes, including an Epiphone Les Paul Goth and a B.C. Rich Acrylic Warlock, and I rig this thing up to a Line 6 Spider 212 Combo (until I get the bones for a good tube stack).

The COSM models just don't sound nearly as good as the wahs they model. The adjustable frequency still doesn't find the sweet spots and in some cases, depending on where you are on the neck, sound bland and almost ineffectual. There just isn't a pronounced sweep even on the custom model. The distortion is a feature, but not really a plus. With so much added in, why didn't the designers consider focusing on just all the features to build a great wah sound. Just look at the Crybaby Rack and all the flexibility it offers. The V-Wah would have been better suited by getting rid of the unnecessary extra bell and whistles (vowel human sounds are useless) and the distortion feature and focus on how to build your own signature wah using programmable eq, adjustable clipping and boost, Q, sweep range. That would have made this a 10 out of 5 if that was possible. I still use it, but man does it make me wish it could do what it does better.

Not user friendly... but high quality.

By MusicManD

from Towanda, KS

See all my reviews

The biggest flaw of this pedal is how difficult it is to actually tweak and customize it to your use. The labels on the pedal itself provide no instructions beyond the basic interactions (wah type, etc) and the user MUST have the manual to learn how to access the advanced features.Once you DO access the advanced features, the wah can be customized to your needs and is easily the best wah I've owned (2 Crybaby wahs, 1 Morley).Regarding the distortion, the factory preset is the Boss Metal Zone. I've switched mine to a Big Muff style model, and it sounds FAR better. It also includes a lot of overdrives, a Marshall distortion, and even a clean booster. Remember that these are not designed to be standalone distortions; instead treat them as color for the wah.If Boss would have made the advanced features easier to access, I feel the reviews would be much more kind.

Don't listen to reviewers who don't know anything

By Ryan-BQxXZ

from Connecticut

I wouldn't take seriously anyone who'd bash a kickass pedal like the V-Wah and then recommend a Metalzone. This pedal is fantastic, easily the best wah I've used. Unless you want to sink a few hundred bucks into a boutique wah, this is the best you're going to find. Built-in noise suppressor means no "wah hiss"; built-in boosters are awesome for a one-click switch for leads; it's optical, so no pots to go bad; and best of all, you can get virtually any wah sound via the preset models or the "custom" wah. The Univibe is also a nice thing to have, but it's just icing on the cake. This thing is all-metal and super solid, sounds fantastic (better than the wahs it's modeling thanks to no pots and built-in noise suppression), and four preset sounds accessible via the heel switch make this wah a beast and a hell of a deal!

Boss PW10 V Wah at bottom of swimming pool!

By Marc Bolger's Review

from Fresno California

See all my reviews

I really knew I didn't want this pedal after less than 5 minuets with it. It's not really a real wah and it has for me a terrible distortion sound that you can't shut off. I can't see this Boss item surviving very long. Boss has made some good pedals in the past, but for me, this isn't one of them!

boss pw-10v-way pedal

By keith-7XmOQ

from healdton,ok

Overall this pedal is a "ok" piece of equipment. I like the harmonics it puts out when the pedal is pushed down, but as far as using it for wah it comes up lacking. I would recommend the ibanez weeping demon. I would advise you to buy this pedal and try it out, but don't make it your first choice.

Great Sound - Light Weight

By Nokie

from Northridge, CA

See all my reviews

This is the wah-wah for your pedal board. Why? Becuase it weighs about half of what the other wah pedals weigh (they're heavy)and sounds absolutely fantastic and has excellent variablility. I was able to A/B it with three variations of Cry Baby including the Jimi Hendrix wah. They all sounded great with only slight variations between them. This one didn't get peircing as one might think being that it is digital. It just plain sounded great, had easy range adjustment and a selector for fundamentally different wah effects. The Univibe isn't as thick as I'd likc but nice for a subtle effect. As a wah, this is fantastic.

Out of Box failure

By J blues

from FL

See all my reviews

I thought this was the answer to my old-school pedal issues with how they can pick up radio frequency interference ( RFI ) sometimes, so I went from old school to (Boss) new school digital.Took it out of the box and got to the point of trying out the heel switch = zippo, nadda did nothing. Tried everything and yes even priting out reading the instructions from the Boss web site (ahhh man its broken). This company offered to replace it but I take this as a sign from the pedal-gods...."Put the pedal back in the box!" Maybe I got someone elses return or a lemon but no thanks on this one I'll pass. I bought this based on alot of glowing reviews but this is the first pedal I have ever had to return...not good.

Overall...Nice Pedal

By DeansForLife777

from Schenectady, NY

I read many reviews of the Boss Pw-10 V-Wah, and many people say they cannot bypass the pedal, BUT, these people are WRONG!!! Just stomp on the heel switch for 3 seconds and the light will start to blink and... BINGO, its bypassed!! It was right in the manual. This pedal has tons of features from the VOX (vo-wah) to Crybaby Wah. Its a typical BOSS, so it will last forever. A little pricy, as all BOSS pedals are, but overall it is well worth the money, if you will take the time to READ THE MANUAL!!!

THE BEST

By Jack Hutchinson

from Fort Thomas, Ky

See all my reviews

I bought this pedal almost a year ago. I haven't used a wah before this one so I don't have a point of reference. However, I like to plug my LP w/ p-90s into a ZT lunchbox through this pedal. It produces any sound I want. It runs really well w/ battery power. I haven't used the power source that came with it yet. It is an excellent ppedal, but be warned, it is LOUD!

The Boss PW10 V Wah is one of the best pedals ever

By The Great Zandini

from Your Basement

See all my reviews

I was very impressed with this pedal, it is almost like a "make your own guitar pedal" because you get so much stuff to pick from and so much stuff to edit! It has the best wahs in it, from Morley, Vox, and Dunlop, and a few added Boss wahs. It even has voice and the old vox uni-v! This pedal helped me get rid of a lot of my old pedals. It is a more expensive wah, but it isn't only a wah, and it has so much stuff in it. It is worth it, if you even think about buying it, stop and buy it, it will be one of the best choices you have ever made!

Two For The Price Of One

By Fab4Man

from Enid, OK

The PW-10 is everything everyone says it is and everything I need in a wah pedal. The options are endless. However, the accompanying manual is hilarious. I feel I got two things for the price of one - a great wah pedal and a comic book. The Boss Quality department must not have read the manual. It even references another Boss product in the trouble-shooting section. While I love Boss products, I have to say the PW-10 manual needs a major re-write.

Too much for one wah...

By Cool Cat

from St. Louis

See all my reviews

This wah has a lot of features, but they're really a bit much. It's difficult to get the right type of wah sound you want, and the wah itself has poor range and response, and the sound seems to reach an amplitude that tops out, making a bit of a crackling noise on the highs, which is really bad for a wah to do. Overall, I'd not recommend, I bought it used and sold it for a few bucks under what I paid, so for me it was a relatively painless learning experience, but I'd hate to hear a story of someone paying full price and encountering the same problems I did.

great but not for everything

By Guitarist2113

from Hamilton, ontario

See all my reviews

I got this pedal a while ago, and I do like it. I have a few problems with it. Firstly: it destroys batteries (and it takes 6 AA). Also, I find it a pain to turn on cuz you need to push your foot quite hard (The Vox wah is much easier.) However, I really like the heel switch that changes your amp sound. Overall, its a great pedal, but if you buy it, buy the battery adapter.

needs some work

By Svendsen

from california

See all my reviews

I bought this from my friend and its an ok product. Maybe I need to change the sweep on it. But when I use the wah effect it doesn't have a lot of range I love the pedal but I would almost rather use it for distortion than the effects. The voice on it doesn't sound like a voice but its fun to play with. I wouldn't recommend this pedal to anybody. I would tell them to get a dunlop crybaby.

This pedal is great but Boss did have some memory problems with them. It's great for a synth for guitar because there always seems to be enough synths for bass and keys. It's nice to see one for us guitarists! It's an ok pedal, I've used it on a few occasions.

this pedal is the most unbelievable wah boss has ever put out... or that anyone has put out for that matter! i have tried about every wah known to man, but none are better than this. it not only simulates several wah pedals to perfection, but it acts as a distortion pedal, too. man, boss really got their stuff together on this one. you won't regret getting this one... i sure don't.

Great!!

By Guitar Bob-r5AKY

from Milan, TN

I have been using this pedal for about three months and have gigged with it 4 times. This pedal is better used as a wah or a "uni-vibe". I don't like the distortion, the wahs are killer and adjustable. The uni-vibe feature is very cool also. I can get anything from "Bridge of Sighs" to "Born on the Bayou" with one setting and adjusting the level with the pedal.
