The Vox Big Bad Wah is a wah-wah pedal designed by both Vox and Joe Satriani. The pedal goes beyond being just your basic wah, as there are a number of parameters on here not normally found on wah pedals. The Big Bad Wah has standard 1/4" TRS connections and can be powered by either a nine volt power supply or battery. This isn't rack mountable as it is controlled by your feet.


Although more complicated than your average wah, I still wouldn't say by any stretch that the Vox Big Bad Wah is hard to use. As far as parameters go, the pedal has a knob for drive, a voice selection switch, an inductor button, and a button to choose between two different wah modes. After using the Big Bad Wah for only a few minutes, I was able to get a great idea of what everything did and how to use the pedal as a whole. For this reason, I don't think that you need a manual for this pedal unless you're new with wah-wah pedals.


Having two different modes on the Vox Big Bad Wah is probably its best feature, as it makes this one of the most versatile wah pedals out there. You've got the first mode which will give you the original Vox wah sound, and then the second mode is one designed by Satriani which is a different flavor and provides you with a lot of controlling options. You don't have to be a fan of Joe Satriani to like this pedal, as the wah tones available will most likely be appreciated by most guitarists regardless. I like the sound of both of the modes as I find that both will work quite well in different situations...It's just great to have both of them at my feet within one pedal.


There aren't too many wah wah pedals out there that have as much versatility as the Vox Big Bad Wah does. However, this will really cost you the price of two separate wah pedals anyway, which is my only complaint about the pedal. Having said this, the pedal is made extremely well and should be one that lasts a while if treated right. I'd encourage anyone who wants a very versatile wah wah pedal to check out the Vox Big Bad Wah.
