Once tweaked, it's a blast to play and it sounds fantastic, so if you can put up with the funky looks and supply it with clean juice this is the wah for you. I would recommend it to any guitarist and bassist, no matter what they play.

The WD7 is extremely versatile. It can be so subtle as to be unnoticeable, so extreme as to be unbearable, and everything in between. I do electronic/metal stuff, but I've stumbled across great funk, blues, and jazz tones. I use it for both my guitar and my bass, and it excels with both. The only thing it can't do is uber-hi-fi, as it adds a very subtle and pleasing (IMO) grit, no matter the setting. It's touchy about power, though. Crappy power ANYWHERE in your pedal board will make it hiss even when bypassed. Power everything with batteries and quality wallwarts, though, and it's dead silent.

Quite frankly, I find all other wahs annoying. They have too much range or not enough, are too loose or too stiff, etc, etc, and there's no way to adjust them. The WD7 can be custom fit to you and your playing style, and that's liberating, to say the least. Add that to the tone controls, and you can make it the wah of your dreams.

Ease of Use
It's definitely not plug-and-play. It took me a half-hour to get the ergonomics right and a few hours of practice to get the hang of how the tone controls interact with each other. Still, knob-haters take read more comfort as this is a perfect set-and-forget unit. Once you've tuned it, you can lock the knobs down and forget they exist. I've moved it cross-country twice, and both times it's come out of the box with exactly the same settings it went in with.

The case is rock-solid and lead-heavy, the soldering is A-grade, the circuit boards attached with a ridiculous number of screws, and it's optical. If you break this, there's something wrong with you.

It's cheap, but it sounds and plays a whole lot better than anything else on the market once tweaked. Change gear, change playing style, or change genre and you just have to twiddle a couple knobs to make it fit. In other words, it's the last wah you'll ever buy.

Manufacturer Support
I haven't had to contact them, but this pedal's so tough I doubt I'll need to.

The Wow Factor
There's nothing chintzy or cheap about it and the finish is practically invincible. I think the photos make it seem smaller than it actually is, but otherwise it's WYSIWYG. I'm not a fan of the design, but it's a floor unit, so no one's going to notice it but me.
