The wah you want for the Jimi sound.
The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Wah-Wah Effects Pedal follows the original '60s design. But it uses modified circuitry to provide a more open (fatter) sound by lowering the frequency of the operating range. The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Wah-Wah Effects Pedal uses the Dunlop ECB-003 power supply.

This pedal is done quite well. The material is pretty hard and sturdy..however the pedal itself is very large compared to other pedals, but that's somewhat understandable..the only problem I have with it is that it's a little overpriced and after only 2 weeks of light use (practice..not stomping on it at all) the metal piece that holds the top part in sqeaks like crazy - so much that I can't even play it anymore.. although a can of WD-40 should fix that soon..another complaint is that it isn't very dynamic..you get one thing and just one thing done well - hendrix-style wah..there are no ways to slightly change the effect other than putting other effects between you and the speaker (that and pressing the pedal ever so slightly)..but even after all that, it's an AWESOME pedal and will make even the typically-dull songs sound ever so rich

Ok, so I've owned this pedal for about 8 months now and I've never hated a piece of gear so much! Yes, it is true Hendrix never played this wah and it sounds nothing like his. He played a Vox wah (Hint go for the vox). This wah has no frequency change in it, it goes from a muddy medium to about the same frequency. There is hardly a noticable difference in sound. What Hendrix did was go from the shrillest highs with his vox to the lowest lows, this pedal does not do this. If you want a good wah get a Vox or anything else than this pedal. If you don't believe me you then go ahead and waste your money if you like but I'm am trying to save you the frustration and buy something else, PLEASE!

I love Dunlop products and the Hendrix model is the better of of the 2 I have. The tone is incredible. I highly recommended it to all my friends and still do. Its a great addition to any arsenal of musical goodies. Hey if they are good enough for Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton they are good enough for me.
OK, Jimi used a Vox wah-wah specially modified by Roger Mayer...so what!? This Dunlop rendition is a very good pedal in its own right - I actually own a Crybaby 535Q, but the bass player in my band has a Jimi wah which I 'borrow' every now and then, and I generally prefer its open tone and simple operation - and it costs about half the price of a Vox 848!So don't be put off by any "brand-name nazi" - this a great pedal.
I got this from my older sister for chrismas. It is freakn' awesome. You can switch the wah on or off. But dont rip out the little pad above the switch or it wont work. It uses batteries very slowly. I still have the original batteries in it. So if you are lookin' for an awesome Wah buy this right now!
What a pedal! I went to my local guitar center and tried out at least ten wahs, and this was without a doubt the sweetest sounding one there. It's built to last and has the old-school crybaby sound. If you're on the fence, buy it! You won't be disappointed.
This pedal is my fist and I absolutely love it. It has a great sound and a really noticable wah. Even though its not a vox like Hendrix used I think its just as good.(my friend has a vox) and I would recomend it to anyone wanting the sound of the classic wah. I have had no problems what so ever. This thing can turn a song from mild to wild!! And Voodoo Chile(slight return) sound so sweet on this thing. I love it, I absolutely love it!!!
This is a very detailed pedal.It works pretty much like an origanal Crybaby.It is adjusted to sound like the way that Jimi Hendrix played it.I play it with a Squier Strat and a Marshall Reverb75.It adds great effect to your rig.
Well, lets see. I got this pedal for 90 bucks total at a local shop. Biggest mistake, cuz after a day, the pedal overall just stopped working. It wouldn't make the wah noise, it just made this weak phaser effect and really brought down the volume of the signal. Poor quality, and I'm not even gonna hesitate to go and get a refund. From what I hear the vox pedals are really well done.
This is a pretty good pedal. If it were just a bit cheaper, it would be perfect, but is a little expensive. Although it's nothing too special when it comes to wah, it's definitely higher class. However, for some strange reason I have to nudge it around a bit to keep the wah coming.. Sometimes the wah will suddenly quit on me, although I'm returning it for a replacement soon so hopefully that will be fixed.
I have used wahs for almost 40 years, mostly Vox and Crybabies. You get used to the midrange feel and the space to play around in there, and the really bright high end. This pedal is very different. It reminds me more of a Mutron sound, and if I mess around with it long enough to get that down, that's probably what I'll use it for. I'm going to keep using my Crybaby for that R&B wah sound. When the pedal is all the way back, your sound is gone, when it's all the way down, it's almost like a normal tone without wah - strange. I won't be using it as my main stage wah, and personally its sound doesn't remind me of Jimi Hendrix's sound. But it is a good pedal, and it doesn't cost much.
This pedal has the best all arround sound out of any wah pedal that I've played with. From soft clean wahing to heavy metal soloing it has the perfect sound. Don't let the price fool you, I've never played better!
