About Wah Pedals

Wah pedals are a lot of fun. Because they are controlled by your foot on a treadle, they uniquely feel like your personal expression as a guitar player - no two players wah alike.

One of the most recognisable guitar effects, wah pedals - often called ‘wah-wah’ pedals - are essentially a mid-boost with the ability to sweep between frequencies. The mid-boost is known as the ‘Q’ and can be either a narrow or wide frequency range. Rocking forward on the wah while playing a note creates a distinctive vocal sound.

The effect was introduced by Vox in the mid-60s. It was originally intended for wind instruments to mimic the sound of using a mute with a trumpet. However, it quickly became clear that it suited electric guitarists best!

Early adopters of the effect were Eric Clapton and, most notably, Jimi Hendrix, who iconically used a wah in the intro to ‘Voodoo Child (Slight Return)’. Other famous users since then have included Isaac Hayes innovating the ‘whacka-whacka’ funk sound of the 70s in his theme song to ‘Shaft’ and Metallica’s Kirk Hammett who used the effect extensively in the 90s, memorably in the guitar solo in ‘Enter Sandman’.

Dunlop are the most famous modern manufacturers of wah pedals with their ubiquitous Cry Baby and numerous signature wahs. There are many more excellent options from Morley, Electro-Harmonix and, of course, Vox.

Why Should I Choose a Wah Pedals?

  • Distinctive vocal sound
  • Perfect for everything from blues to funk to metal
  • Unique expressiveness

Frequently Asked Questions about Wah Pedals

Question: What type of guitar player needs a wah pedal?
Wah pedals are particularly popular among blues, funk and metal players. They are wonderful for giving solos an organic, vocal quality and funk rhythm parts personality.
Question: Where should the wah pedal go in my effects chain?
Wah pedals go first in the chain! Feel free to experiment but plugging the guitar straight into the wah is the tried and true method.
Question: What wah pedal did Jimi Hendrix use?
Jimi used the long discontinued Vox Clyde McCoy Wah pedal. There are plenty of wahs on the market that are very similar to this iconic pedal. These include the Fulltone Clyde and the RMC Real McCoy and Dunlop Hendrix signature Cry Baby. All of these will capture that classic ‘Voodoo Child’ tone!
