View Full Version : Mounting my wah
08-29-2009, 11:00 PM
Hello EVERYONE!!!! I had a question and thought u all would be the best at answering it. I want to mount my Vox Wah to my Trailer Trash Pedal Board. However, I don't want to use a 9V battery to power it, but instead use the 9V adapter that came with my Voodoo Lab Pedal Power power supply. Any suggestions on the best way to mount my Wah Pedal? Thanks for your ideas. I appreciate it.

Either remove the rubber feet entirely (use shorter screws + washers to secure the bottom plate to the shell) and velcro, or use a wah plate to bring the board up to the height of the bottom plate. Use velcro or screws (on a Pedal Train, screws might not be an option) to secure the wah plate to the board, and then velcro to fit the wah to the wah plate.

I just did this on my Buddy Guy Wah. Took the rubber feet off, flipped the back plate so the velcro wouldn't mess up the cool graphics if/when I removed it, bought 4 thin vinyl/plastic washers and cranked the screws back in. Luckily the screws were not that long to begin with. Two strips of velcro, and on the pedaltrain it went. No issues, cost less than $2 (I bought a foot of 1" velcro from the $1 store, the washers were like $.18).
I'm sure the wah plate is a fine product, but I had a hard time justifying the extra $. :boxer

so the adapter connects under the back plate of the wah.This shows it on the side, next to the output jack. If you have a different setup, I think Voodoo makes a battery connector cable.

Have you guys seen this new Wah mounting plate?
The EWS Wah Mounting Plate.
Only $20. I just saw it in the new GP Magazine.

hmm...so that's two companies making bottoms for wahs. When I floated the idea of selling bottoms for Boss and other pedals, I got a major plonck from tgp.
