    It’s a good vintage-style pedal. However, note that the unit is made for battery only, so there’s no 9-volt connection. Nonetheless, it’s perfect if you’re going for that 60’s sound. It sounded very similar to my standard Vox V846 wah, except the hand-wired version seems to produce a slightly bright sound. It has a solid built with an all-metal frame. I would appreciate a little more control over the range of the effect, though.
