Wah-Off Battle Between METALLICA's KIRK HAMMETT & MRS. SMITH Is Happening In March

We've been fans of guitar goddess Mrs. Smith for ages now. Her guitar skills, and wah prowess is virtually unmatched. Now, she will put her money where her mouth is in a wah-off with legendary Metallicai guitarist and wah pedal user/abuser Kirk Hammett. It all started when Mrs. Smith laid out the gauntlet for Kirk last year.

“I’m the number-one wah-wah abuser. I abuse the wah more than Kirk Hammett and I’ve challenged him multiple times to a wah-off. Why are you hiding behind your wah-wah pedal, Kirk Hammett?”

The video eventually got back to Kirk Hammett, who decided to accept the challenge.

Now there is a date. Sunday, March 8th! Before Kirk and his friends in the Wedding Band get up and do some covers, Kirk will invite Mrs. Smith up on stage for a wah off to end all wah-offs. Who is the biggest abuser of the wah pedal? We'll find out on March 8th.

‪KIRK HAMMETT VS. MRS. SMITH‬ ‪CRY BABY BATTLE ROYALE‬ ‪March 8 at The Senate in Columbia, SC‬ ‪ ‬ ‪Who would dare challenge the status of @KirkHammett as King of the Cry Baby Wah Pedal? His reign has long been undisputed and recognized by millions of fans the world over, not to mention Wah manufacturers, @jimdunlopusa, who feature a Kirk Hammett Signature model. Last year, the gauntlet was thrown down by a most unlikely challenger… Mrs. Smith! New York City-based philanthropist, emerging guitar goddess, and lover of all cats (as well as some people), @smithcatmrs has dared to proclaim that she is, in fact, the #1 Abuser of the Wah. Kirk has accepted her challenge, and now these two will finally go head to head (foot to foot?) in a Cry Baby Battle Royale for the ages on March 8th at The Senate in Columbia, SC! Get tickets for this once in a lifetime showdown now! LINK IN KIRK’S BIO #CryBabyBattleRoyale #WAHOFF #kirkhammett #smithcatmrs‬
