Posted on 17/03/2012 by The crybaby. Some wahs may look prettier, have chrome or knobs on but this is the one you want. If it was good enough for Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton I'm guessing it's probably going to be good enough for you. The daddy of all wahs. Try one out in a shop. You will either hate it and all wah pedals instantly or love it forever!
It's a classic for a reason. I've had a lot of pedals over the years and quite a few wahs of different makes. If I could only have one, this would be it. Love it. Buy one today.
