Back from Tenerife to find an ehx Octavix in the post, very brash but I’ll fiddle and find something that works.
popped onto gumtree and found a chap with a Dunlop wah that I got for £40 with a few sweeteners so that’s two new toys. Plus a solder sucker for trying to save a voodoo octave if anyone remembers my thread a week or so ago...
anyhow, couple of questions with regards to the wah especially when used with the Octavix.
on clean the wah sounds as I expected (although shifts the tone a lot, loses a lot of body). With the Octavix in the mix though (after the wah chain order wise) there is extremely little effect from the Dunlop. The dirty channel on the amp works a bit better but still doesn’t sound ‘right’ wah spectrum wise. It sounds more ‘on/off’ if that makes sense.
is this normal? The first riff predictably tried was voodoo child and the sound is light years off. Not enough wah wah.
The pedal is about 15 years old, does it need a mod/new pot or something?
ive got a tube screamer in the post so that may help.. (?)
