I had a 535Q. Didn't like it a lot. I like the Vox Wah Wah a lot more. The 535Q was a pain to adjust and I couldn't get the Wah I wanted. It was great for multi-purpose, but I wanted a one trick pony.

Play with both then. You don't have to only choose one. Maybe they'll both lead to a completely new idea each. Investigate every path you have and use the ones that work best for you.
