Gearank Recommendation

The VolWah appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Volume Pedals from November 2018 until February 2021 when it was out-ranked by other volume pedals.

Overview

The Sonicake VolWah is a compact pedal that houses two functionalities - that of a volume pedal and a wah and it has two LED lights that indicate the mode of the pedal, whether it is on Wah or Volume pedal mode.

It is also among the smallest in terms of size, which means you are saving both money and pedalboard real estate.

It sports a simple pedal controlled active volume circuit, with no extra features to complicate.

But what sets it apart is its built-in Wah functionality that is inspired by vintage Crybaby style wah.

As expected, it is housed in plastic, but reviewers point that it is robust enough for regular use.

If you're looking for a budget friendly volume pedal that gives you the best return for your money then this is your best bet.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Volume Pedals.
