Overall Rating:
The best wah pedal I've ever bought. Don't ever expect any wah pedal to be durable. They almost all invariably need to be repaired on a regular basis if used frequently.
Model Year: 2002
Price: $150.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Manny's Music
Features:
One switch to adjust the tonal range of the sweep. There are three ranges. The first sweep is on the high end for the higher strings on the guitar-good for solos. The second sweep is also for guitar and adds more bass to the sweep-a wider envelope. The third setting is for a bass-the sweep is tweeked at a low setting, approriate for a bass.
Sound Quality:
I use a Fender start through various amps (mostly Fenders and Marshalls). I play Rock, Funk and simple Jazz. The pedal has a really smooth sweep. The signal isn't too noisey-I write "isn't too noisey" because I have yet to find a wah pedal that doesn't make noise at the high end of the sweep. Still, it's a relatively clean sound with a really consistantly smooth sweep. The best wah pedal I've ever heard!
Ease of Use:
The pedal operates very nicely under my foot. It's a lot "faster" and easier to play than most wahs. The switch is under the pedal which is inconvenient. Despite the location of the switch, this pedal is well worth the money.
Durability:
Doesn't seem too durable. I took it back to Tech 21 within a week of using it. However, I use it a lot! I don't blame the manufacturer. This is a fact; all wah pedals are noisey and will "crap out" much much sooner than other types of pedals. If they were built to last they would weigh too much and cost much more money. So, the pedal is as good as it could be.
