It has an adapter, but you can use batteries and stuff. i wish it shut off easier. its not that bad, but it can get kinda tricky switching it off and moving to a different effect.
The tone is really good actually. It scorches through a distorted amp, but its pretty delicate if you want it to be.
Its not to easy to use at first, but when you get the hang of it its managable.
It is made of steel and rubber, so its pretty sturdy. it has rubber on the bottom, so it doesn't slide when you play.
This is a good pedal. Only problem is that is discolours my bypass signal. That sux. But still, it is a good crybaby, which is very easy to use.
I can do funk wamping or satriani-like solos with this wah quite well.
It should be a 3.5 out of 5 methinks.

The unit is switchless (no noise). Step on to switch on and step off to switch off. However there is a noticable difference in sound when going from wah to bybass.
The unit has a q control to give a range of wahs from sharp to subtle.
There is also a boost selector switch. You can get a 100dB volume boost if your wah isnt noticable when you got distortion or something on at the same time.
The pedal is ANALOG and MONO
The pedal is BATTERY and AC powered.
AC power is recomended as when the battery starts to die, you get less and less wah.
The pedal is good for funk, blues, or rock. However, it isn't as aggressive as some, so metal players might not like this one.
The pedal is about average as wah pedals of this type go.
The pedal can have a slight, but nonetheless horrible hiss if it is left with the boost on, with a high amp volume. Also, the pedal discolours the signal in bypass.
The boost selector is on the right side of the pedal, so in a pedal board, you will need space between units to get your foot in there and use it.
The q controll is smallish and on the left side. Not the easiest to use when in a pedal board, during a gig. I keep it on one setting permenantly.
To actually use the wah, it couldnt be easier. Step on, step off. Step on, step off. Hey even Homer Simpson could do that, right?
Seems very durable to me. No problems yet.
