The Vox V847-A wah pedal improves on the V847's popular design with increased dynamics and functionality, thanks to a few design changes. A redesigned inductor brings the new pedal's specs even closer to that of the original. and an added input buffer prevents impedance loading of the guitar signal to preserve your guitar's tone in bypass mode. By staying true to the tone and vibe of the 1960s-era Vox wah while enhancing its legacy, the V847-A offers you a modern update on a true classic.
Vox developed the first wah-wah effect during the 1960s in order to enable guitarists to emulate the sound of a muted trumpet. The unique sonic characteristics of Vox’s original wah pedal subsequently became immensely widespread, thanks to pioneering guitarists such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and others. Today, the wah is as popular as ever — you’ll see nary a single pedalboard here at Music Experience without a wah pedal on it. It’s a must-have piece of gear.
Based on the specifications of the original pedal developed by VOX in the ’60s, the new Wah-Wah offers guitarists the same legendary tone with the addition of AC power capability and a buffered input jack for preserving the unprocessed guitar tone when the pedal is not engaged. The pedal’s inductor has undergone a redesign to be closer in specification to the original VOX wah inductors, for improved dynamics and tone. These additions will benefit players of all genres who use a wah pedal as an integral part of their sound.
