In honor of Jimi Hendrix, I thought I would talk about the Vox V847 Wah. The V847 is based on the original specs of the wahs of the ’60s. There are some other builders (based on the Clyde McCoy – Fulltone Clyde, Teese, Vox V848, etc) that make some great wahs on the older circuit design. There are some amazing musicians that played the older Vox wahs.. obviously Hendrix, Page, etc.
Here is the official description:
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 mutedâ€”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 another great video by gearmanndude where he compares the Vox V847 against the Dunlop Classic Crybaby.
