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!
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).
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.
Self-lubricating nylon bushing pivot for quiet and smooth operation with fully-adjustable rocker pedal tension.
Gold contact relay true bypassing, which allows for transparent true bypass tone, while incorporating ultra reliable switching with minimum one million life cycle.
20% smaller footprint than conventional wah pedals.
Fully adjustable Wah-Q and Bias controls and a two-band EQ with +/-15 dB center-detent potentiometers optimize the voicing for different playing styles and gear.
Fuzz friendly buffering circuit assures a great sounding wah tone with your favorite fuzz pedals.

Why was my package refused?
There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:
Very versatile. Clearly a notch above the rest.
I can't say enough about the Xotic xw-1. It's easy to dial in great tones, has lot of great controls, yet not so many settings that it's setting overkill. I like to put the Wah-Q setting up to get a nice, vocal quack out of it. It also feels so nice under the foot, very well made. Bigger than a Mini Dunlop yet smaller than a full size Dunlop, nice middle ground. The first wah I seriously want to keep stepping on and playing more and more!
Having never owned a Wah pedal(though have played through plenty), I got the Xotic Wah The Day of a show and did not have time to work with it. When I stepped on this Wah it was quite, Musical and very adjustable! The smaller footprint took a little getting used to. Sounds great clean or dirty. I have had nothing but compliments from folks! Total Keeper!!!
Very versatile wah but it's a much smaller footprint than a crybaby. It really takes some getting used to. Probably not the best choice for people with big feet.
All the bells and whistles. Sounds great and super versatile.
