A Modeling Wah Pedal
With the new V-Wah, BOSS has taken its
considerable digital modeling know-how and recreated some of the most
popular wah pedal sounds of all time. These COSM models include
“CBY-Wah” (the classic wah sound), “VO-Wah” (the British wah sound),
“MO-Wah” (a popular new-school wah sound), and “Uni-V” (a vintage
swirling rotary effect). Each of these is a stunning simulation of the
original, quickly accessed with the turn of a knob.
Advanced New Features
Digital memories and infrared sensors aren’t the first things that come to mind
when you think about wah pedals, but that’s exactly what sets the V-Wah
apart. Thanks to its infrared sensors, this pedal offers smooth,
noise-free operation, has no “click” sound when it’s turned on, and
never needs to be cleaned. Once you’ve tweaked
your wah sound to perfection using the “Type,” “Wah Range,” and “Drive”
knobs, simply save it to one of the PW-10’s three digital memories for
instant recall with the heel pedal switch.
Since many of the best wah sounds include a healthy dose of overdrive, the
V-Wah includes eight different types of built-in overdrive. These
include BOSS classics like the OD-1 OverDrive, OD-2 Turbo OverDrive,
MT-2 Metal Zone, DS-1 Distortion, BD-2 Blues OverDrive, as well as
“Muff Fuzz,” “Guv Dist” and “Booster” modes. Just dial in the amount
you want with the “Drive” knob.
“Talking” Wah Sounds and More
The V-Wah’s “Voice” mode can produce a wide variety of “talking” wah
sounds—just sweep the pedal through the different vowel sounds and make
this pedal talk! Rounded out with an “Advanced” mode with a huge filter
range, and a “Bass” mode designed for the frequencies of bass guitar,
there’s never been a wah pedal quite like this.
New “Double Resonance” Mode
The PW-10 doesn’t just do wah; it also creates analog synth-like sounds via
a newly developed “Double Resonance” mode. Simply use the pedal to
sweep the filter and get fat synth sounds by adding the PW-10’s onboard
distortion or fuzz. You can also use modulation effects like delay,
chorus and reverb for an even greater variety of cool synth sounds.
