External Controls

BIAS CONTROL — Changing the bias warmer will lead the Xotic XW-1 Wah to having slightly more output & firm up bass frequencies along with a more pronounced wah through the sweep. A cold bias is common with vintage wah pedals for a very clear voice that is more transparent in tone and smoother in operation.

PLEASE NOTE: You’ll notice that the “BIAS” knob makes a slight scratching noise when you turn it...NOT TO WORRY! Our engineers designed it that way - once adjusted it will be silent. We recommend adjusting the settings while your wah is turned off.

WAH Q CONTROL — This knob adjusts the Q (the width of the filter peak) and in basic terms, adjusts the amount of the wah effect for precise filter shaping to achieve vocal-like effects.

TREBLE & BASS CONTROL — A two-band EQ with +/-15 dB center-detent potentiometers optimize the voicing for different playing styles and gear.

ADJUSTABLE RUBBER STOPPER — Located on the backside bottom of the treadle this rubber bumper can be shimmed to adjust the travel range of the pedal.

ADJUSTABLE PEDAL TORSION — Fully-adjustable rocker pedal torsion by adjusting Hex nut on the treadle.

LED INDICATOR — The LED indicator is located at the top of the Xotic XW-1 Wah and lights up when the pedal is on. One unique feature of the Xotic XW-1 Wah is the LED will flash if the battery power falls below 50% and indicates that it is time to change the battery.

DC JACK — 2.1mm x 5.5mm 9VDC — Negative Center. When an external power supply is used, the battery is disconnected from the circuit. When using a battery, the life of the battery can be extended if you unplug the input when the effect is not in use for long periods of time. Battery access is through the removal of bottom plate (4 screws).
