I bought this for old school Wah (Hendrix/Clapton) .I tested it on a Tele and Strat. I did not test it with my SG. When I was young I bought the original Thomas Organ version Clyde. I also now have a Dunlop Crybaby GCB-95 too from many years ago. The Vox Wah sound is very good, making a very good Wah Wah sound. Its range seems less. Also compared to the Dunlop it sounds weak, thin, and harsh but more vocal. I AB'd it and I just can't use this Wah because it sounds so thin as if some one chopped all the roundness off. It is a little more accurate than the fat sounding GCB-95. The Dunlop sounds round and big and is consider the standard these days. So I like the Vox Wah sound but it is not enough to override the thinness of it. I returned it. If two people played side by side, GCB-95 and the VOX, people would think something is wrong with the Vox. Now if you are using humbuckers, the results may be different.. However for modern music, many other model Dunlops would be more appropriate as modern day Wah is not the same as old school Wah. I do know that this Wah is VERY popular so read other people's reviews and watch/listen to online videos. Many people however buy it for its looks because they saw Hendrix use one and worse still, they might take off one foot because they notice Hendrix sometimes had only three rubber feet on it, probably only because he lost one.I bought this because I actually had one of the original VOX Wahs, unfortunately, at least from what I remember, it is not close enough. I really wish I liked it.
And BTW, Dunlop makes both their and Vox's Wah Wahs so it is a design decision on how they sound. In fact most of it is the same.
When considering a Wah, you might want to get one with an adjustable output and other adjustments. When you look at signature models remember you do not have all the other equipment the artist has.
The low cost Dunlop, is a very good choice for most. You may decide even if you want a Wah at all. Using a Wah is not just rocking your foot, you have to have feel - if you don't you sound like an idiot and a poser. That is one reason so many used ones are available.
My final decision on a Wah was to go a more expensive route because I wanted to get it over with and get the perfect Wah for me once and for all. I wanted what I had when I was young as that sound is in my head. I chose to get a complete drop-in replacement with buffer from Area51 because I already had a Wah to put it in. Otherwise I would have just bought a complete Area51 Wah from him. He makes his own inductors the very important part of the tone. For most, and I want to be honest, a basic Dunlop Crybaby is fine and low cost and Amazon's price is as good as anyone else plus you have Amazon backing up their sale. For those who spend a lot of time seeking the "tone" the difference is very noticeable and worth the added expense if you can afford an Area 51. The standard Area 51 Wah is perfect as it is, if you want the Thomas Organ Clyde old-school sound. Once you hear an Area 51 Wah, it is an education. This is what a Wah is as far as I am concerned. It is also super well made.
In closing, I want to advise you again to read other reviews because some people love these Vox Wahs.
