Vox v847 Wah Wah issues...

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by stompfrog, Aug 3, 2005.

  1. Hello....

    I bought a 2nd hand Vox v847 Wah Wah yesterday and I have a couple of questions...

    Is there any way to tell if it is original 60/70's or a reissue.
    It looks old but I was wondering if there was another more reliable way to tell.

    Secondly when you rock the pedal it crackles through the amp.

    Is this a dirty pot and if so how do I clean it? The amp on my stereo does the same so I am planning a pot cleaning day if all goes well!
