        Re-introducing the legendary Vox V846 as used by Jimi Hendrix for a new era - the ultimate Wah Wah pedal for the guitar tone enthusiast, featuring hand-wiring with premium components!

        infospecs

        Vox created the worlds 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 unique 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 by Jimi Hendrix at the Woodstock Music & Arts Fair in 1969.

        The legendary V846 Wah Pedal is back! And it's better than ever. Introducing the V846-HW: The ultimate Wah Wah pedal for the guitar tone enthusiast, featuring hand-wired turret board construction using premium components.

        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 Voxs world-famous technology, with classical yet modern specifications, surpassing any previous Wah Wah pedal in history by delivering the purest sound.

        Hand Wired Artistry

        The internal circuitry of the V846-HW uses no printed circuit boards whatsoever; the hand-wired turret board construction requires a high level of craftsmanship, technical skill, and precise manual assembly. Labor intensive, this hand-wiring artistry creates an ideal and efficient signal path. Responding to every nuance of the guitarists touch, the V846-HW is truly the ultimate Wah Wah pedal.

        True Bypass

        Designed as a premier pedal for the tone purist, the V846-HW provides a true bypass circuit to meet the needs of todays guitarist. Any coloration of the sound or loss in audio quality when the Wah Wah function is off has been totally removed.

        Vintage-Spec Inductor; Smooth Potentiometer

        The inductor is the heart of every Vox Wah Wah pedal. The V846-HW uses a specially-voiced vintage-spec Halo type inductor. The carefully selected magnetic core material and winding ensures a perfect reproduction of the original V846s Wah sound, the sound sought after by guitarists around the world. The potentiometer is a Vox original that features a distinctive response, and is sealed for durability. Thanks to a remarkably smooth curve, the region at the very beginning of the pedals travel - a region difficult for conventional Wah Wah pedals - is assured sensitive response with an unprecedentedly fine degree of control.

        Premium Components offer Maximum Sound Potential

        Carbon composite resistors (made in Japan by KAMAYA ELECTRIC CO., LTD) are used for their extremely low noise and uncolored sound. As in the Vox Hand-Wired Series amps, high-spec polyester film capactitors are used. The high-quality footswitch made by Carling Technologies, was selected for both its reliability and its good feel underfoot. The Switchcraft jacks are well-known and trusted for their sturdy bushings, simple construction, and high reliability. Together, these carefully selected components come together in the amazing V846-HW, the ideal embodiment of the Wah Wah pedal that only Vox can provide.

        • Terminals: Input (x1) Output (x1)
        • Power supply: 9 Volt Battery (x1)
