    Has anyone fooled around with one of these? They seem really cool (tweakable, a huge plus to me) but I'm not really familiar with Akai products, plus, I read that the VariWah is plastic? Not a good sign.

    Anyway, if you've experience with this thing, give me some impressions, warnings, suggestions, etc.

    Thanks.

    Funny, I just tried one about an hour ago and Mars Music. Didn't like it at all. I thought it sounded
    muffled. Couldn't get any sharp distinct sound out of it. I tweaked around with it for quite a while.
    The wah was very mediocre and the pedal didn't have good action compared to the crybaby's.

    I havn't tried any other Akai products.......
