Rating and Reviews: Dunlop Zakk Wylde Wah

Add a hard-hitting thickness to your tone with this pedal. Designed to Zakk Wylde's specs and housed in metal casing, it gives meaning to the word "stompbox."

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: The sound is extremely throaty and is primarily used to change the tones produced by my guitars. This is not a wah that should be used for the simple wah wah effect. If this is what you are looking for, by a standard dunlop what; however, if you want cutting edge tones for metal and blues rock, this wah is perfect. Feature: A plain and simple wah and the fasel inductor is an excellent feature on this wah. I wouldn't change a thing on this wah. Ease of Use: Great Wah!!! I have been in search of this sound for so long and this is the first wah to deliver. Although there is a definite learning curve when compared to normal wahs, once you get the hand of it, there's no going back. Quality: Very solid construction. Mine had one cosmetic blemish (i think) as it was purchased as a blem'd item; however, I haven't seemed to find any visible blemished on the pedal as this thing is made like a tank and it will last forever. Value: Although I highly support both zakk and dunlop products, the price on this wah is a bit extreme at regular price. However, when paying the blem pricing, I feel that it is worth every single penny. Manufacturer Support: No need to use, this thing works perfectly. The Wow Factor: Wahs aren't very sexy however, this thing has wonderful construction and a great raw look. Overall: If this thing stops working or falls apart (which it never will) i would replace with the same model.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
Sound: Its Got a very "heavy metal" wah wah tone. Its has a really growly/heavy tone to it. I more so prefer it for rhythm stuff with a wah because the sweep is so wide on it. i found that this wah sounds much better with anywhere between mild - high distortion. Its not a good blues wah probably. Feature: It came with a pick, sticker, treadle adjuster, basic info and 2 mxr and wah brochures. The wah itself didnt come with any special features, just plug and play. It has a really nice look to it, looks like it was built like a tank, basic yet in a way still intimidating Ease of Use: Plug it in and just go for it. You cant modify the sound at all so what u hear is what u get, but i personally dig the soun a lot. Quality: Built well, if Zakk wylde can stomp on it all night why cant we? Dunlop wahs in general are very reliable so i dont worry about this wah breaking at all, if so i have a db-01 aswell so no future problems. I will definately give it a home on my pedal board. Value: It wasnt too expensive, im sure the price is jacked up another 20-50 bucks because zakk wylde's name is on it. But its a great sounding wah, even with a fully adjustable wah you cant make them sound like this Manufacturer Support: Havent had to use them, but ive heard good things The Wow Factor: Very sleek, i already had a wah and i bought this one, i couldnt put it down. Overall: i'll be satisfied until they make it customizable then i'll want that one. Its an awesome pedal for those heavy rhythm riffs if u wanna have a cool wah rhythm. If it was stolen i'd more than likely replace it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: The ZW pedal is built with very high quality and looks great. It does not have any adjustments so it is limited in the tone that it gets. So, if you like the ZW tone then this product is perfect. Feature: The pedal does come with a tension adjustment wrench which is quite nice. Its either on or off and when its on its only the ZW tone which is a bit extreme for my taste. Quality: Built like a tank Value: ZZounds matched and beat Guitar Center by 20%. Manufacturer Support: ZZounds are fast shippers and the customer support is a 10+
