Product Description

The legendary V846 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 upcoming 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 Vox 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.

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 guitarist's 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 today's 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 V846's 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 pedal's 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 its durable performance.
