Jimmy Page’s Vox Grey Wah

Jimmy Page used a Vox Grey Wah with the Yardbirds and in the early days of Led Zeppelin, ending with the July 1970 Germany tour.

This means that this was the wah pedal that Jimmy used on songs such as “Dazed and Confused”, “Whole Lotta Love” solo, and “Communication Breakdown”.

The first album was done totally with a Vox Super Beatle, so with just that and a Telecaster, a wah-wah, and a boost pedal, you can create a great variety of sounds. I used a depressed wah pedal on the solo. I did the same thing on “Communication Breakdown.” It gets you a really raucous sound that just slices through everything.
