Should I make my Vox Wah True Bypass?

I know they "suck tone"....I had this wah for about 20 years. I'm running my guitars through the wah, tuner & Belle Epoch delay straight into the front end of my 100 watt Marshall Plexi.

Sometimes I play Strats & Teles through a Tonepad Triangle Big Muff along with the stuff mentioned above.

Opinions? Why or why not?

Thanks

No I should do it, if it's an old Vox, not a 90's reissue. ;)



But yes, do it.

You should. It takes 15 minutes and is SUPER easy to do even with minimal skill/knowledge. There is a YouTube video that shows you step by step how to.

If it's a valuable 60's wah, I'd put it in a true-bypass loop and keep it on all the time, then switch it in and out as needed.

If it's a newer one, then go for it.

Either way you absolutely want it out of the signal path when you aren't using it.

I modded my 90s V847 for true bypass and it really restored alot of lost signal when the wah was off, a noticeable improvement in the overall tone and particularly the high end.

I am very happy that I did it to mine. You'll notice the difference immediately.
