What We Think

Leave it to Xotic to produce a completely game-changing wah!

First off, give them a hand for producing a compact, pedalboard-friendly pedal that's 20% smaller than standard wahs but with a similar feel and sweep. If that alone isn't making you drool, how about the super tweakable, low-profile knobs on the side, allowing you to dial in the exact wah filter sweep and tonality that will perfectly match your rig.

Still unconvinced? Well pop open the bottom compartment and check out the dip switches, giving you even more control over your high end, Q frequency type (letting you get those more deep, guttural wah sounds), and even a boost of up to 6 decibels.

We're convinced that the Xotic XW-1 is set to push every other wah off your board! Call Soundpure today for more details!

Manufacturer's Description from Xotic Effects

Background

Xotic Wah is modeled based on the Holy Grail wah, 1967-1968 Italian-built Clyde McCoy Wahs. With the Xotic Wah you don’t get one or three sounds in one pedal, you get unlimited sounds with unique controls that shape and contour your sound the way you hear it! The adjustability and flexibility of the Xotic Wah makes this one of the most versatile wah pedals available today!


External Controls

BIAS CONTROL — Changing the bias warmer will lead the Xotic Wah to having slightly more output & firm up bass frequencies along with a more pronounced wah through the sweep. A cold bias is common with vintage wah pedals for a very clear voice that is more transparent in tone and smoother in operation.

WAH Q CONTROL — This knob adjusts the Q (the width of the filter peak) and in basic terms, adjusts the amount of the wah effect for precise filter shaping to achieve vocal-like effects.

TREBLE & BASS CONTROL — A two-band EQ with +/-15 dB center-detent potentiometers optimize the voicing for different playing styles and gear.

ADJUSTABLE RUBBER STOPPER — Located on the backside bottom of the treadle this rubber bumper can be shimmed to adjust the travel range of the pedal.

ADJUSTABLE PEDAL TORSION — Fully-adjustable rocker pedal torsion by adjusting Hex nut on the treadle.

LED INDICATOR — The LED indicator is located at the top of the Xotic Wah and lights up when the pedal is on. One unique feature of the Xotic Wah is the LED will flash if the battery power falls below 50% and indicates that it is time to change the battery.

DC JACK — 2.1mm x 5.5mm 9VDC — Negative Center. When an external power supply is used, the battery is disconnected from the circuit. When using a battery, the life of the battery can be extended if you unplug the input when the effect is not in use for long periods of time. Battery access is through the removal of bottom plate (4 screws).


Internal Controls

INPUT GAIN — Controls wah input gain– by turning clockwise it adds up to +6dB of Wah Boost.

RELAY BYPASS SWITCHING — Xotic Wah uses a relay bypass switching for true bypass switching.

INTERNAL DIP SWITCHES — Controls wah resonance frequency range.

About Manufacturer

Xotic began in 1996 as a manufacturer of high quality customized basses. Xotic Basses have been well received by professional bassist such as Michael Rhodes, Keith Horn, Ric Fierabracci and Chris Roy. Xotic continues to manufacture high-end customizable guitars and basses. Click here to see some of the guitars and basses we have produced.

In 1999, we introduced a new line of guitar/bass pedals, Xotic Effects. The now infamous RC and AC Boosters have the privilege of being on some of the most famous pedal boards today. Because of the superior sound and transparency, the Pros have come to depend on our pedals for their signature sound. We are continuing our passion for tone with the addition of several new pedals, including BB Preamp, X-Blender, Tri-logic Bass Preamp, Bass RC Booster & Bass BB Preamp etc. But don't just take our word. Please take a look at the "Reality Web Videos" and hear how the pros use our products.
