The Wah Pedal was accidentally created in 1966 after a circuit redesign for a Vox amp didn't go exactly as planned.
What eventuated was a sound that had instant appeal to the electric engineers, prompting them to file a patent for the unique effect.
Since then, the Wah has become a popular mainstream with artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Dimebag Darrell & John Frusciante. No true guitarist can deny the talent of a good Wah pedal, and if you want to bring up a song out of muddy waters, you can't beat it.
There's a plethora of Wah pedals available these days, with some trusty models like the Dunlop Cry Baby, and a lot of smaller, specialised brands. See if you can try a few Wah Pedals at your local music store, as they all have a unique sound.
