One of the earliest effects to break into the guitar scene, the wah hit guitar player’s pedal chains in the 1960s. Early users like Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton helped propel the effect into stardom through their creative use of the “crying baby” sound in their electric guitars. As decades have continued to come, the wah has found a home in every genre of music from hard rock to blues. Some of the greatest sounds in guitar history have come from rocking a wah-wah pedal during fast legato runs or adding vocal expression to a bend. Along with each pedal, we have provided links to some of our favorite demos in order to give you a feel of the capabilities of each wah.
