Product Description

The Big Bad Wah dual-mode wah pedal features two wah modes and some unique features which delivers a wide range of wah sounds. Another effect pedal created in collaboration between the world-renowned guitarist Joe Satriani and VOX.

Joe Satriani Big Bad Wah Features

  • Dual-mode design offers two distinct wah sounds in a single pedal
  • Wah One is classic VOX; with that decidedly sweet UK tone
  • Wah Two provides Joe Satriani's original drive and voice controls, delivering a wide range of sound-creation possibilities
Big Bad Wah is one in a series of pedals designed by VOX and guitarist extraordinaire Joe Satriani. Joe contributed numerous ideas that were unheard of in existing wah pedals, endowing the Big Bad Wah with an unparalleled range of sounds from vintage to modern, as well as those that are totally original. The heart of any wah pedal is the inductor. The Big Bad Wah allows you to select between a vintage UK style inductor, and the more modern USA style. Designed to Joe Satriani’s custom specs is the design of the pedal pot itself, delivering a smooth, musical tone throughout the entire sweep of the pedal.

Big Bad Wah features a dual-mode design. Wah One faithfully replicates the classic VOX wah sound that conquered the world.

Wah Two delivers all the wah pedal know-how that Joe has accumulated over his many years of experience. The Drive knob mimics the Wah 1 gain at its lowest setting, and delivers a 10 dB boost at the maximum settings for those aggressive, growling overtones. One of the most powerful aspects of Wah Two is the Voice switch, providing traditional wah voicing; or a dark, resonant tone reminiscent of a vintage talk-box.

This is the ultimate wah pedal not just for Joe Satriani fans but for any wah pedal user who enjoys creating their own sound.

A Step Up from the rest
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The JS-Wah is very well constructed and seems to be very dependable.
How has it stood up over time?
I haven't had it long, but I haven't missed a day of not using it. It still looks and sounds the same as the day it came out of the box.
Your general opinion of this product.
I have always wanted a wah with just one more setting for just a little more wah. We'll, I feel this was the best choice I could have made. It is very smooth to the touch and has that extra that I've been looking for, for a long time. I'm very pleased with the JS-Wah. Now if I could just get Sach to come over and show me a few tricks we'll, I'd be glad to show him mine.

How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It is very smooth. No noise when you make any changes while playing or while stepping on the pedal.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The JS-Wah has both a bright and and dark and smooth wah sound.
How did the stain or paint job look?
This wah would look good on any stage.
How was the action out of the box?
Like i said. It has a very smooth feel and sound unlike other wahs I have owned. Definately the best sound.
