        I haven't followed this very closely, was looking at something Vertex the other day. I can't imagine why anyone would spend $350 on a wah, period. In fact more and more of my pedals have become cheaper lately, not more expensive.

          obviously you haven't heard this wah. the way the notes bloom, the harmonics, the crystal lettuce, it is better than anything you have ever...wait it is a rehoused bbe pedal?! i knew that thing was terrible.

            Not even rehoused.... just changed the base plate and gooped the circuit... oohh... and add a couple of hundred$ to the price tag off course.

              I like these scams. It is really just a round about way for me to figure out which cheap pedals are worth buying.

                    It's the best wah I have ever heard, you just need to put it on a 3/8 piece of plywood and use a 23 1/2" coily cable on the output.

                    It is very similar to the BBE, but once your ears are developed you will notice it is less fizzy and retains the Robin Ford chirp of a truly great rig.

                    If you don't hear this you probably have the cable plugged in backwards.

                                9-6-2014

                                AN OPEN LETTER FROM MICHAEL LANDAU.

                                This letter is in response to the recent events surrounding Mason Marangella and Vertex Effects. I first became aware of the drama concerning the Vertex Wah Wahs through Clif Jones on August 16th. I was late hearing the news because I had been on tour and I’m not a regular on the gear forums. The news was not good, this was exactly the type of drama that has kept me far away from guitar pedal endorsements for most of my life up until recently.

                                Since I’ve never actually owned a production model Vertex Axis Wah, I anonymously purchased one 12 days ago so I could have it compared to the BBE Ben Wah by a reliable source whom I’ve known for many years,
                                I wanted to have a first hand account of the results. The results show that the Vertex Axis Wah I recently purchased was identical to the BBE Ben Wah.

                                Obviously I can’t be involved with a company or associated with a person who runs his company like this,
                                so officially as of 9-6-2014, I no longer formally endorse any Vertex products.

                                I would like to state the following facts for clarity:

                                - I am not an electrical engineer, the only time I open up a pedal is to change the battery.
                                - I have never used, nor have I ever endorsed any of the production model Vertex Wah Wahs.
                                - The Wah Wah that has been on my pedalboard since January 2013 is an old Dunlop Cry Baby that was modified by Mason, I don’t know the specifics of the mods, it sounds good to me, it does have a Vertex sticker on it from when Mason worked on it a couple of years ago.
                                - I do not use, nor have I ever endorsed the Vertex cables.
                                - I use the Vertex Landau Boost because I love the EXP volume control function.
                                - I use the Vertex Volume pedal only as an EXP pedal for the Landau Boost.

                                As of 9-3-2014 , I have instructed Mason to give all of the dealers and distributers a 30 day notice
                                stating that the Vertex Landau Boost and the Vertex Landau Chorus will be discontinued.

                                Out of respect to the entire guitar community:
                                If anyone wants to return their Vertex Landau Boost or Vertex Landau Chorus and is having a problem doing so through Vertex or the dealer they purchased it from, please contact Clif @ L.A. Vintage Gear and I will personally provide a full refund.

                                Michael Landau
