On what songs does Edge use the 'wah' pedal?

This is like my first ever post on this forum. I'm not a guitarist or anything, but my mate just got a wah pedal and I can't recall that many songs that use it? Are there any U2 songs where it can be heard?

Mofo is a Whammy, Elevation is a Kay Fuzz.

^ but Edge doesn't have a kay fuzz in his Elevation ground control. i think it's wah. and Edge does play with the wah when he hits those muted strings at the beginning of Mofo.


the Elevation solo is a Filter Factory, not wah.



Edge also uses it for bits of New York live

On an audience DVD I clearly saw that Edge wasn't playing anything at that stage. That muted strings wah sound was backing track as he was still in the process of getting the guitar from Dallas. Maybe during the 2nd verse.

For Elevation tour he used the Electrix Filter Factory and a wah (chrome version) and for Vertigo tour (I think) He only used the Kay Fuzz tone re-housed in a dunlop wah pedal, and I'm pretty sure he did not have the Filter Factory in his rack on the Vertigo Tour.

Wait but did he have the Kay fuzz for the Elevation tour? If he did then only the Filter Facotry was used for the solo but if he didnt then he used the Filter Factory for the whole song for the Elevation Tour...Right?

I just can't wait for the next U2 so fanmade videos can be dedicated strictly to Edge's footwork. Preferably from multiple angles.

Don't forget to make the multiple angles selectable. With one fully trained on his twin towers effects rack. With a high detail signal routing diagram to top it off.

F*** the Bonocam on his glasses, we want Edgecam!

Kay Fuzz is only for Elevation intro, which Edge didn't play on the Elevation tour, and Edge definitely doesn't have one now.


the Electrix Filter Factory was used on the Elevation tour for the solo, and Edge didn't play with any expression pedals for that part of the song. Edge doesn't have one in his rack on this tour.

^. . . Edge still uses the whammy for Beautiful Day, and rehousing it in a vintage whammy sounds a little fishy.
