My 1st wah pedal
This is my first ever wah pedal. It sounds great, it's super sturdy, takes an internal 9v battery and its tiny! Looking at the inside it seems to be wired in True Bypass. Consumption at 0.9 ma should give very long operation time on a 9V battery. I like the middle voicing, not too dark, not too bright, probably not messing with that any more. The footswitch was very crackly and rusty and hard to press, not giving much feedback on my foot, but nothing a little spray of good'old WD40 wouldn't fix right away. Included is an allen wrench to adjust drag. Loving it!

its a tiny crybaby
I tend to repfer voxes ins tock, affordable wahs, but this guy was so small and cute I decided to buy it.... it sounds like a big crybaby. I am not the best wah wah player but I can say I am no worse at wah wah on a small treadle versus a full size one. These are spit cheap and worth the investment if you're building a small pedalboard. I got this because it was my only pedal on the floor besides my midi controller and I wanted it to pack up into a guitar case. More mid-forward then the Hendrix wah, more conventional sounding then a morley but not as aggressive and mid-forward as the V847 I used to have. Totally passable. I'll bet every other crybaby is better, but not smaller or cheaper ;-)
I couldn't seem to get this thing to work for me due to the tiny size. After finding the voicing switch i got a sound I liked but I just never managed to wah effortlessly n this little fella. In the market for a full size wah that has that Cream sound.... I know, tall order.
Sturdy, versatile and good sounding
IMO it sounds just as the original one but this is half the size and weight... so it's definitely recommended if you want to fit a wah in your pedalboard. It also has a switch that lets you choose between 3 dfferent frequency ranges (Low, Mid, High of course...). I find this feature very useful and cool but consider that the switch is placed inside the pedal, so it's more about choosing the setting you prefer then stick with that unless you want to unscrew and open the pedal every time. I guess a lot of players used to classic wahs will find it too small and not so easy to control with your foot... I'll be honest about this: I bought it just to use it on a couple songs but I really suck at playing with ANY wah, so I can't really judge!
Need a Wah just 'Cus?
If you're looking for a wah pedal that gives you wah and don't want to spend a ton of money and tie up a fifth of your pedal board, this thing is perfect.
Literally no frills. It has decent sweep and the smaller size is actually pretty easy to get used to. Seems nearly indestructible.
I almost want to give it 3 stars because it doesn't have an LED to indicate that it is on. What year is it? Must we continue to live as savages?
