V847 Wah-Wah Upgrade PCB
We offer upgrade PCB's for VOX V847 vintage style wah-wah pedals. Our Clyde/Fasel V847 Vintage Wah board is a direct drop in replacement for most of the V847 reissue pedals and can be wired to most any other VOX or Dunlop pedal housings with the correct potentiometer and jacks. This board will update your pedal and give it that deep throaty wah sound you've been missing. The high quality inductor and Wima film capacitors provide high-Q filtering that extends the wah range and depth.
Our boards are based on the original Clyde McCoy design featuring Fasal inductors, BC107 transistors and super high quality Wima Film capacitors. The latest REV-B PCB includes trimmers for BIAS and RESONANCE adjustment. The boards are available with RED or YELLOW Fasel inductors and remain as true as possible to the original design. The Fasel RED offers a smoother classic type wah tone while the YELLOW offers a sharper more cutting type tone.
True Bypass Option
You may also choose to wire your pedal for true bypass operation by replacing the stomp switch. See the REV-B schematic for the direct bypass switch wiring diagram. We offer an inexpensive 3PDT type switch, or you may prefer to locate your own heavy duty type.
Our PCB's are professionally designed and are fabricated with double sided and plated through pads and holes. All parts and connector pins are clearly labeled with silkscreen legends. The extra ground plane perimeter flood provides enhanced shielding/grounding. The PCB also accepts the original VOX OEM round type inductor used in many of the V847 reissue pedals.
Plug-And-Play for Older VOX V847 Pedals Only
This board is an upgrade for the original Vox V487 wah (not V847A or others) and will only directly replace V847 units like shown below. Please make sure you have this type wah before ordering. Our kit does not include any wiring or other connectors, only the PCB and optional switch if ordered. While it's possible to adapt this board to other wah pedals, we cannot assist or help with other types of modifications or installs. Thus, if you plan to adapt this board to a different pedal, then you will have to make all the necessary wiring changes or other modifications yourself.
