Vox V846 HW - Hand Wired Wah Wah Pedal
The legendary VOX V846 Wah pedal is back, and it’s better than ever. Introducing the V846-HW: The ultimate Wah Wah pedal for the tone enthusiast, featuring hand-wired turret board construction and premium components.
VOX created the world's first wah-wah pedal back in the 1960s; forever changing the sound of rock music. In 1967, guitarists from around the world rushed to embrace the original V846 Wah Wah Pedal, known for its inimitable VOX sound. The V846 has more than earned its place in rock history, being used on countless legendary performances, including the famous playing of Voodoo chile at the Woodstock Music & Arts Fair in 1969.
Now in 2011, over forty years later, the V846 has been reborn as the V846-HW Hand-Wired Wah Wah Pedal. While its classic tone is undeniable, the V846-HW was not created to simply repeat the history of the past, but to write new chapters in the future. As its name implies, the V846 Hand Wired boasts hand-wired turret board construction. But VOX didn’t stop there. Every component, including the inductors, resistors, capacitors, and the potentiometer has been carefully selected for premium fidelity and tone. In fact, a tone-preserving true bypass has been added to the original design. Outside, the die-cast body features a sandblasted exterior with crepe finish. The V846-HW is a perfect combination of VOX's world-famous technology, with classical yet modern specifications, surpassing any previous Wah Wah pedal in history by delivering the purest sound.
