Update… since writing this post, they raised the price to $69.99. That’s still a good deal with the rebate.
So I found a crazy deal on the Vox V845 Classic Wah at Musician’s Friend. Right now they’re on sale for only $49.99. That alone is a good deal (that’s 67% off of MSRP), but they’re also including a Mail-In rebate of $20. According to my math that puts the cost of the V845 at $29.99. Plus, this Vox Wah is coming with a free gift… Danelectro DA-1 Power Supply ($9.95 MSRP).
The rebate expires on 12/31/10 (view rebate form). I might end up buying this.. just for a nice wah chassis to work on mods, etc?? Who knows, but this price it’s worth picking up for sure! Check it out here.
Here is the official description of the Vox V845 Classic Wah:
The Vox V845 Classic Wah Wah Guitar Effects Pedal is based on the specifications of the original pedal developed by VOX in the ’60s. The V845 Wah-Wah offers guitarists the same legendary Wah-Wah tone in a new sturdy but very affordable design. The fitted AC power connector saves on batteries and the outer case is coated with tough all-black finish making the VOX Classic Wah-Wah a perfect choice for your pedal board.
VOX developed the world’s first Wah Wah effect during the ’60s to give guitarists the ability to sound like 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.
I found this video by MusikSchmidt (it’s in German):
