"Vaughan’s wah pedal of choice was a Vox V846 from the Sixties that originally belonged to Jimi Hendrix. Jimmie Vaughan, Stevie’s brother, acquired the pedal from Hendrix when Jimmie’s band shared a bill with the Experience in Fort Worth. Vaughan owned several other Vox wah pedals and was allegedly very fond of an early Seventies version with a Japanese TDK inductor. Vaughan used the Vox wah on his Hendrix covers and 'Telephone Song' on the Vaughan Brothers’ Family Style, and he famously used two wahs at once to record 'Say What.'" Photos of the V846 in Vaughan's rig can be found [here](https://srvarchive.com/effects).more

This wah sounded less throaty and grungy than my 847. Treadle action was better and the pot didn't crackle. More like a crybaby but with a little more mid-oomph. I am not sure why sold or traded this. I probably hadn't plugged it in for some time and since wahs are HUGE I decided to clear some drawer space for effects I would use more frequently. Maybe I swapped it for a microphone or a compressor, who knows?
It's a good Wah Wah, vintage tone and look, I would like to gave it 5 stars but the reason that i gave it 4 its because you probably have to change the potentiometer because it's ridiculously noisy!
Construction: 5 Stars. Tone: 4 Stars. Quality: 3 Stars.
Total Average: 4 Stars.
nice classic wah sound from the 70's. This is the original one without a power supply so it's pretty good. Nice build and feels durable as heck. This thing also sounds killer with some distortion.
