As the name implies this wah-wah pedal features multiple Union flag graphic decals that go along with its striking blue, white and red color combination.

Using water pressure transfer printing decal technology, they gave the swivel pedal a bright multi-colored finish, and wrapped the lower portion of the pedal with a nice looking graphic that depicts the national flag of the United Kingdom.

This limited run wah pedal is sure to turn heads with its colorful theme and unique looks. Surprisingly it doesn't add much to the price tag when compared to the production model, at least from what I've seen from online sellers.

Underneath all the bling though, this pedal stays true to the regular V847 Wah pedal. The innards follow the V847's design down to the smallest details, ensuring that it sounds equal to the company's latest production model wah-wah pedal.

The V847 Union Jack wah lets you get as close as possible to the original wah pedals that Vox developed in the '60s. It sports improved wah inductors that are based on the specifications of vintage Vox Wah pedals, resulting in tones that are harder to differentiate from those of working vintage counterparts. This classic tone nicely matches the retro appeal of the pedal's special finish.

To make this classic pedal more pedalboard-friendly, Vox added features that are now considered as standards on modern stompboxes. Most notable of which is the addition of an input buffer, which according to the company, prevents impedance loading of guitar signal in bypass mode - to cut the long story short, the pedal will not change your tone when not engaged.

Another nifty addition is the 9V power supply input for connecting the AC adapter, yes, older pedals did not have this seemingly basic luxury. The pedal weighs 2.87 lbs without the battery and measures 102 x 253 x 80 mm.

The limited edition V847 Union Jack Wah is now available for preorder, with a price tag that does not stray too far from the regular production model, at $89.99. For more information, visit Vox Amps.
