An effect with history
One of the most widely, effectively used effects in the history of music. Wah has been a staple across the genres for decades. Originating in the 1920s, with jazz trumpeters and trombonists experimenting with a "crying" tone, they found the effect could a produce wailing, howling sound that gave their playing a distinctive edge.
It wasn't until the 1960s that the effect began being used on guitars. Once it established itself within rock music, wah was heard in the work of a gigantic variety of musicians. George Harrison used the effect extensively on his solo work following the break-up of The Beatles. Jimmy Page employed wah on Led Zeppelin's superb Physical Graffiti. Jimi Hendrix on "Voodoo Chile". Mick Ronson throughout David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. John Squire on The Stone Roses' iconic "Fools Gold".
The list goes on and on. Wah has been an integral part of popular music for years. Friedman have managed to produce perhaps the best, most functional, wide-reaching wah pedal yet. Inject some scintillating individuality into your music with wah.
