Xotic Wah XW-1 – guitar effect pedal review in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the March issue of the magazine features a review of Xotic Wah XW-1 guitar effect pedal. The product was delivered for review by Xotic distributor in Poland, Warwick Distribution.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“Xotic Wah XW-1 takes its cues from Vox Clyde McCoy Wah, the world’s first wah-wah pedal created in 1967. What is more, the inductor (sound filter element) used here was designed specifically to capture the same vintage tone that is produced by the sixty years old original.”

“Xotic Wah XW-1 worked perfectly with a bass guitar as well, which shows how versatile a pedal this is.”

“Playing with this effect is just a pure pleasure.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
