The Wonderful World Of Wah-Wah Episode 1

Published on Aug 19, 2016
Duration:
54:25:00

In this preliminary episode (yes there will be more, based on the questions you ask following this one) Daniel and Mick get busy with the rockingest – literally – pedal of all time, the fantabulous manual foot-treadle-operated envelope filter.
That’s the wah-wah pedal, just in case you hadn’t worked it out by this point.

We set out to address a number of questions ranging from the basic to the slightly less basic: what is it; how does it react with overdrive and fuzz; what is a half-cocked wah, and just how does the Vox V847 Handwired compare to the standard V847? Burning issues, all.
