Just think of Jimi Hendrix’s iconic song “Voodoo Child” and you can never forget that amazing wah pedal riff. There is something about that riff when Jimi uses his wah that it creates a groove and ferocity in the sound that can make you do nothing but let your jaw drop to the floor. Slash’s solo to “Sweet Child of Mine”, highlights the brilliant capacity for a wah pedal to enhance a solo like no other effect. Slash takes an already classic high-gain British crunch sound and adds a wah to create one of the most screaming sounds and solos we’ve ever heard in music history. There is only one pedal that can move your sound into this esteemed dimension, and that is the wah pedal. This is why we at N Stuff Music consistently carry one of the best selections of wah pedals that you will find in the industry.

First let’s discuss a little about what exactly creates that wah-wah effect.

Essentially the wah pedal is a very rapid and expression-based EQ shifter. It alternates by adding lots of treble and taking away bass, and adding bass and taking away treble. This is why the wah pedal is designed to be used as an expression pedal with your foot. By being an expression pedal we mean that the effect is physically controllable without changing any knobs and is actively controlled by your foot.

Therefore, the wah pedal works by cocking your foot back and forth on the surface and pressing down at the toe to turn the pedal on. When the pedal is cocked forward and the toe is pushed down the pedal is adding lots of treble and removing bass from the sound. When the pedal is cocked backward and the heel is pushed downward the pedal removes treble and adds bass. This EQ shift happens fast enough that it creates that wah-wah effect.

The wah pedal has without a doubt made some of the most iconic records ever and has also become the staple sound of some of the world’s most famous guitarists ever. Guitarist Wah-wah Watson is one of the most famous studio players who made the wah pedal part of his signature sound. This signature sound of Wah-wah Watson went on to play on Barry White’s “Love’s Theme”, The Temptation’s “Papa was a Rolling Stone”, Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get it on”, and many other classics. Guitarist Charles Pitts made Isaac Hayes’s theme from “Shaft” into one of the most memorable wah pedal guitar lines ever recorded.

The capacity for the wah to fit in various styles of music is amazing. As with Slash, Kirk Hammett, Zakk Wylde, and many of the famous rock players the wah pedal has created a screaming sound that will enhance a big crunch guitar sound. But perhaps one of the most sought after uses of the wah pedal is as a hyper-expressive sound that can be utilized on some of the best rhythm guitar ever in the worlds of funk, R&B, and pop.

There is a huge selection of wah pedals available on the market today that contain a variety of different features. This makes it often difficult to decipher the differences and find what is right for you. Contact us at N Stuff Music and we will gladly take your musical needs into full consideration and help guide you to a wah pedal that is right for you.
