OVERVIEW

The real sound and feel of this classic guitar effect.

The V847A Wah-Wah pedal is an enhanced version of the most famous guitar effects pedal of all time. Based on the specifications of the original pedal developed by VOX in the '60s, this version offers guitarists the same legendary tone with the addition of AC power capability and a buffered input jack for preserving the unprocessed guitar tone when the pedal is not engaged. The pedal's inductor has undergone a redesign to be closer in specification to the original VOX wah inductors, for improved dynamics and tone. These additions will benefit players of all genres who use a wah pedal as an integral part of their sound.
About the Wah-Wah
VOX developed the world's first Wah-Wah effect during the '60s in an effort to allow guitarists to emulate the sound of a trumpet being muted - an important musical ingredient of the day. VOX's original Wah-Wah pedal quickly gained widespread popularity and its unique sonic characteristics have encouraged further experimentation by guitarists ever since. Having made spotlight appearances on some of the most famous recordings of all time, the Wah-Wah is still considered "must-have equipment" for guitar players of all levels and abilities today.

  • Input/Output jacks: INST jack, AMP jack
  • Power supply: One 9V DC battery 6F22(S-006P)
  • Power consumption: 540uA @ 9VDC
  • Battery life for continuous use: approximately >100 hours with manganese battery (will vary depending on conditions)
  • Dimensions: 102(W) x 252(D) x 75(H) (including rubber feet, pedal in lowest postion)

For the price - You get a great Vox wah. One thing to keep in mind about the Vox wah is that they're more of a vintage reissue type of a pedal. They're not a modern "game-changer" in terms of how they handle high gain signal chains. With that being said:

I own the v847a as well as the v845 and I can tell just by holding the two that the v847 is a more rigid pedal. Then, the switch operates much, much smoother. I have to stomp the v845 through my pedal board in order to get the switch to engage. The v847a switch can easily be engaged from a sitting position... no struggle.

It is NOT true bypass, which is a draw back but Vox did include a signal buffer stage that tries to reduce tone-drain when the pedal is disengaged. If you're running this with just a few other pedals you shouldn't have to worry about much tone loss. Let's get real, unless you're running a long signal chain - you don't NEED true bypass... it's just something that people clamor for based on the negetive conotation it's given.

Some don't like the treble in the sweep... You can adjust the sweep of any wah by adjusting the gear position a little more on the bass side of the potentiometer... I actually did this to my v845 once I put this pedal on my pedal board. This gives me two different voicings of the Vox wah.

For the money... it's probably the best traditional Wah.

I have now had two of these pedals. The first one I bought had to get fixed because of a all the noise it created when I used it and they couldn't fix the pedal at the store so they sent it back to the manufacturer. the manufacturer then sent me a replacement which has started to make the exact same noise. I have learned now that if a pedal says made in china, it that it is absolute garbage and don't waste your money on it. all other pedals i own made in the U.S.A. work fine and I haven't had an issue with any of them.

    I have used Crybaby pedals since the 80s but never owned a Vox, always a Dunlop. The Dunlop is really good, but I like the Vox a lot.

          Great wah. It's built sturdy and comes with a bag. The sound is an excellent, but I already knew what I was going for and had an idea of what this sounded like.

            I'm very pleased with my Vox wah. I like it better than my Dunlop original Crybaby wah. The Vox is cleaner sounding and has a better sweep. Give it a try.

              Comments about Vox V847A Wah-Wah Pedal:

              The key to this pedal is where to place it in your particular effects pedal chain. This is all decided by how your own gear responds. I tried the Jimi up front placement first (right after the tuner) and it was not correct. But, after placing after the distortion pedals and before the chorus, reverb, delay pedals, voila! - there it is. There's an art to using these (like patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time - but with good coordination -- so a careful foot really helps glide this thing home. Nice nice pedal - and good price. Love it. Also, seeing the word "VOX" when you look down is an added bonus ;]

                  I've been playing for 45 years and needed a new wah-wah as the Dunlop Cry Baby I have died on me. I had this same pedal back in the 70's and made the mistake of selling it at one point. Looked at other pedals but I remembered I always liked this one so I bought it again. I play out with a blues/classic rock band a couple times a month and this one works great. Rugged and gives me the tone and sound I like. If you need a wah-wah this is the one you want, you won't be disappointed.
