Guitar gods have used the cocked wah sound to create monster riffs that have earned a permanent place in the rock lexicon. That required finding the sweet spot in their wah pedal’s sweep. The Cock Fight lets you achieve that cool cocked wah sound without the wah pedal. Tune in the tone you want. Add the built-in distortion for more grind and growl, or switch to the Talking Wah mode for a stuck voice-box sound. If you plug in an expression pedal, you can sweep the Cock Fight for jaw dropping wah and the tone you want. Add the built-in distortion for more grind and growl, or switch to the Talking Wah mode for a stuck voice-box sound. If you plug in an expression pedal, you can sweep the Cock Fight for jaw dropping wah and talking pedal effects, with or without distortion!

Quick Specs

- Great cocked wah and talking pedal sounds
- Like getting three pedals in one: crying wah + talking wah (with adjustable frequency) plus a classic fuzz
- Use with or w/out the fuzz. Place the fuzz before the filter for a vintage vibe or after for a more modern sound
- Adjustable bias control takes the fuzz from “normal” to a classic “dying battery” sound
- EXP input so you can sweep the wah and talking pedal with an expression pedal
- Includes an EHX 9.6DC-200 PSU, also works with 9V battery
- Dimensions in inches: 4.0 (w) x 4.75 (l) x 2.25 (h)
- Dimensions in mm: 102 (w) x 121 (l) x 89 (h)
 
The Electro-Harmonix Cock Fight, a dual-filter fuzz box. The Cock Fight contains two different expressive filters: a traditional wah pedal filter (“CRY”), and a formant filter (“TALK”) used for vowel sounds. The Cock Fight also has a fuzz section that can be added before or after the filter section, or taken out of the circuit entirely. The BOTTOM and BIAS controls allow additional tone shaping possibilities. Connect an expression pedal or a control voltage to the EXPression input jack for even more sound control. 

WARNING: Your Cock Fight comes equipped with an Electro-Harmonix 9.6DC-200BI power supply (same as used by Boss® & Ibanez®: 9.6 Volts DC 200mA). The Cock Fight requires 40mA at 9VDC with a center negative plug. Using the wrong adapter or a plug with the wrong polarity may damage your Cock Fight and void the warranty. 

GETTING STARTED

Connect the output plug of the supplied power adapter to the 9V power jack. Plug your instrument in the INPUT jack; connect your amp to the OUTPUT jack. Set VOL to about three o’clock, FREQ to max, BOTTOM to min, left switch to CRY, and right switch to FUZZ OFF. Press the footswitch so that the LED light is lit. With the effect turned on, you will hear a slight boost in volume as well as a brighter sound. Adjust the FREQ knob to dial in the cocked wah sound to your taste. Connect an optional expression pedal to vary the frequency of the filter continuously as you would with a traditional wah pedal.

- CONTROLS -

VOL Knob – Use this knob to adjust the master output volume. 

FREQ Knob – Use to adjust the frequency of the filter selected by the CRY/TALK toggle switch. 

TONE Knob – Use to blend between a darker fuzz and brighter fuzz sound.

DRIVE Knob – Adjust to set the amount of fuzz.

BOTTOM Knob – BOTTOM is a low frequency boost control that is slightly above unity gain when set fully clockwise. Set fully counterclockwise to remove the BOTTOM circuit from the signal path. TIP: When used with a bass guitar or other low frequency sources, the BOTTOM adjustment can help retain the bottom end typically lost with most wah pedals.

CRY/TALK Toggle Switch – The “up” position selects the CRY setting. CRY simulates the type of filter found in a typical wah pedal circuit. The “down” position selects the TALK setting. This setting—as its name implies—produces throaty/vocal vowel sounds. 

PRE/FUZZ OFF/POST Toggle Switch – The PRE position places the fuzz before the filter. Use this position for a vintage Hendrix vibe. FUZZ OFF removes the fuzz entirely out of the circuit. The POST position places the fuzz after the filter and yields a more modern sound. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      BIAS Knob – This knob controls the amount of bias voltage supplied to one of the transistors in the fuzz circuit. Turn the BIAS knob fully clockwise to supply a nominal voltage and create a “normal” fuzz sound. Turn the bias control down (counterclockwise) to decrease the bias voltage to get the “dying battery” sound. This type of sound is characterized by a decrease in sustain and by notes that get choked off as you play with less force. 

FOOTSWITCH & STATUS LED – The Footswitch toggles between effect and buffered bypass. The status LED lights when in effect mode.

INPUT Jack – This ¼” jack is the audio input for the Cock Fight. 

OUTPUT Jack – This ¼” jack is the audio output for the Cock Fight. 

EXP Jack – The expression/CV input controls the frequency knob. The position of the FREQ knob sets the maximum sweep range of the expression/CV input. 

EXPression input jack accepts a TRS expression pedal connector or a Tip-Sleeve 0-5V control voltage input. The expression pedal should ideally use a 10k potentiometer with linear taper. It must have the wiper connected to TIP and toe-down connected to RING. Some manufacturers’ pedals do not conform to this convention and require a special cable/adaptor to swap RING and TIP. Suggested Expression Pedals: EHX Expression Pedal, M-Audio® EX-P, Moog®  EP-2 & EP-3, Roland®  EV-5 or Boss®  FV-500L.

- CHANGING THE BATTERY -
To change your 9-volt battery, you must remove the 4 screws on the bottom of the Cock Fight.  Once the screws are removed, take off the bottom plate and change the battery. We recommend 9V alkaline batteries. Please do not touch the circuit board while the bottom plate is off or you risk damaging a component.

NOTES AND SPECIFICATION 
• The Cock Fight utilizes a high quality buffered bypass.
• The input impedance is 2M Ohm. 
• The output impedance is 470 Ohm.
• The Cock Fight’s current draw is 35mA.
