Wah Probe Vexter
Das Wah Probe Pedal ist ein über eine thereminartige Antenne gesteuertes Wah. Der Filter wird über eine Kupferplatte gesteuert und öffnet sich (höhen), wenn sich Fuss oder Hand der Kupferplatte nähert. Das Wah Probe Vexter hat den Super Hard-on Poster mit an Bord der dem Wah vorgeschaltet ist. Neu sind weiterhin der "Mix" Regler (Mischverhältnis Original/ Effekt) und der "Range" Regler mit welchem man den oberen Regelbereich des Wah Effekt Kontrollieren/Begrenzen kann.

Z-Vex is one of the most innovative and unusual of pedal makers. The Wah Probe is a natural continuation of the probe series which also includes the fuzz probe and the tremolo probe.
If you are familiar with these other pedals, then this is exactly what you think it is: a Theremin-style antenna controlling a wah, getting brighter as your foot approaches. It has one extra feature, however. There's a Super Hard-On boost circuit in front of the wah, with a knob to set the exact level of boost for driving your wah sound.
How it works:
The probe circuit generates a small (one or two inches high) "bubble" of RF energy at about a million cycles per second above the copper plate. As your foot or hand (or any wet or metallic object, for that matter) approaches the copper plate, the RF field is disturbed and the circuit reacts by increasing the brightness of an LED, which drives a photoresistive cell and controls the Z.

Controls are as follows:
Drive- set it so that when you kick on the wah it's doing its stuff at the right intensity. It goes from slightly lower than the normal guitar volume to completely bonkers when turned up all the way.
RF field screwdriver adjustment on the bottom of the pedal- If you turn it in the direction of the arrow (usually to the left for that one) it will make the probe circuit more sensitive and set the "bottom" setting of the wah higher and higher. LED current control- You can usually leave this one at exactly halfway. That's how the unit is usually shipped. If you think the wah is too bright when your foot is all the way on it, just turn this control to the left to make it a little duller at the top end.
Works with any kind of nine-volt battery.
