Hi, I'm Mel (female..blrgh!) & I'm new here. Intros suck.
I have a question. Has anybody here tried Vai's wah pedal? What does it sound like and what would you rate it on a scale of 1 to 10? Would you happen to have a sound file? Feedback will be greatly appreciated. None of the guitar shops in my area (south miami & cutler ridge) have the pedal in stock.

I've never tried it. none of the shops near me carry it either. Try out some Crybaby's, you definately cant go wrong with those.

I've played it before and I have to say it's dissapointing. The wah doesn't really kick in until the pedal is almost all the way down. Crybaby's are a good buy, but most multi effects pedals can simulate a better wah (and is also highly adjustable)

Whoa, a shred-loving girl who plays guitar?!

You're amazing!

Haven't played the pedal, but from what I hear, it has a real "digital" sound...you know, not so warm kind of wah.

Yeah, Somebody told me it's really outer-spacey (whatever that means).

I would have to say "digital" nowadays is infinetly better than analogue. (I realize we can debate this until the end of time) Anyways, digital gives you the ability to make any sound you can come up with. Also when you're recording it's much easier to DI digital...
