ok wel, its my birthday coming up, and i really wana buy a wah wah pedal. Now im undecided between the crybaby, vox wah wah, and vox v847. I went to my guitar shop to try some out and they only stock the crybaby, i quite liked it although the sound seemed a bit sharp. At the moment i think im swaying towards the vox v847 mainly cause its got really top notch reviews.

Anyway please voice you opinions and tell mev what you think
BTW i have an SG, and play 70s rocks based stuff if that helps

I have a Crybaby, its cheper then the v847, but its still a great pedal. Depends, if its your birthday then your probably not buying, so ask your parents to order it or something.
I am going to solidly with the vox... simply because its better.

Your sig is wrong... it should say
Fender Frontman 15G - Soon to be a VOX AD30VT. Thats all.

its all preference, the crybaby seems to handle distortion a bit better. the vox has a better sweep IMO, with a more vintage tone.

the route i went? i bought the cheapest crybaby and then had keeley make it true bypass and various other mods. i actually have special edition with more mods than he performs now, plus its hand signed

I have the V847. It's a great wah for classic rock/blues type stuff, and seeing as that's what you like, I'd recommend it. I think it's discontinued now, though, because the V847a is coming out next month. The only difference between the V847 and the V847a is that the a version has true bypass and a 9v switch. As an owner of the old version, I'd say it's worth waiting for.

Just what I know: Dimebag's Crybaby has a bigger sweep.

well although i do play some clean stuff most stuff i play has vintage distortion with my metal muff (amazing pedal), so im still undecided

any other comments to add ppl? what about some strange make? Or what about slashes crybaby version

Varkunus
03-25-2007, 03:06 PM
although the dimbag sig version is expensive is it worth all the extra money? and would it fit my style of older rocker, zepplin, sabbbath etc

Dunlop Original Crybaby does the job for me just fine but i heard the Ibanez Weeping Demon is pretty awesome...but I've never tried it so i honestly can't say. If you have your heart set on either a VOX or a Dunlop, I'd go Dunlop. But its all about preference my man.

DO NOT GET A DUNLOP! especially a dimebag wah. That does better with HEAVY distortion. the only people who buy dunlops are the people who havent tried anything else. I would suggest 2 things. A: Wait for the new vox B: Buy an ibanez weeping demon-it may not be as good as the vox, but is more versatile. Oh, and the vox's are true bypass (not sure about WD7)

EDIT: If you do get a crybaby i hope it bursts into flames when you take it out of the box

i'd say vox v847a for classic rock, blues, funk stufff

and the dime wah for heavily distorted stuff

Varkunus
03-25-2007, 04:18 PM
ok so which is the best vox and which is the best crybaby. Im not worried about make, just the sound

hendriko
03-25-2007, 04:19 PM
IMO its the v847(A)
and the dime wah (maybe the custom one)

hmm was just checking out the weeping demon on youtube. Found this good testing video, just wondering if you can get more sweep than this guy has set it to, and it seems to cope well with distortion

*points at sig* I'm still selling.


Anyway, I haven't played a vox, but I would love to someday.

Holy crap, that weeping demon....!!!!































sucks. Holy crap, you can't even hear any sweep.

Personally, I like the V847 much better than the Crybaby Original, which I tested side-by-side. The Vox has a wider sweep, which to me makes it more versatile, and it had a better tone. The quality of the tone is of course debatable, but the Vox seems better for classic rock, which you mentioned you play. I'd highly recommend the V847.

Purely stock the Vox V847 is better than Original Crybaby, the sweep is wider and the tone was a bit better. Modified however I'd take my Crybaby over a Vox.

my crybaby is incredible. its an excellent pedal and if you decide not to go with a standard wah, dunlop makes many wah variations.

I had a vox for a couple weeks (got it for free when a friend of mine moved) but i didnt really like it. Once i got my crybaby classic for christmas i fell in love with it and sold the vox. Crybaby all the way!

I ordered a Vox 847 without hearing it off the internet and was dissapointed. Sold it on ebay shortly after and got a Crybaby ZW. I'm English as well so it wasn't as cheap over here. I've never played on a non sig crybaby though,

That was ages ago now and i'm still happy. Would love the Slash one as well, seen some clips of that and it sounds ace.

wow im suprised nobody has recomended this yet, get the crybaby 535q with 6 tone options thickness/volume/gain control you cant go wrong, i have one and its tight

Varkunus
03-26-2007, 03:05 AM
so what about the slash one? or like the 535q etc, so are u guys saying the weeping demon is crap?

the zakk wylde crybaby was brilliant in my opinion. the only other better wah was the morley bad horsie. get out and try those, both great pedals but nothing beats the morley. anyway, wah has more to do with individual expression so i wouldnt take advice from anyone when buying a wah pedal.

That video makes me want to buy the 847A model now....kinda glad I sold my dimebag wah now..even though i didn't get much -_-.

Out of those two, the vox definitely.

Varkunus
03-26-2007, 11:34 AM
hmmm im still stuck, really stuck. My dad mate plays guitar in a local band and he recomends the ibanez. But can the vox cope with distortion. And this pedal would be mainly used during solos, and for some rhythm

Varkunus
03-26-2007, 11:49 AM
hmm joe bringing it up i just looked at some morleys on youtube, they sound sweet. Especially the steve vai one, what about the morley power wah cause that can be used a a volume control aswell. So which is best in the morley range?

dude so if i play metal and i love distortion, then the dunlops crybabys would be good?

03-28-2007, 04:18 AM
^ so basically you want one to play stuff like metallica?
hmm, I need one too. One that handles distortion well and has a good sweep.

The Crybaby has a small sweep, too much treble and a sharp sound. The Vox doesn't.
