A New Wah

Hello.
I want to buy a wah wah pedal.
I need a wah wah that sounds good on dist and clean.
I hears a lot about the Morley Power Wah, what do you say about it?
People told me that the best for dist are the Morley Power Wah and the zakk wylde's wah sig' (ZW 45).
What do you think?
Thanks in advance!

Also depends on your setup and EQ. The ZW works well with the Marshall's and brit voiced amps that are mids heavy and he has boosted highs and lows. So with that setup he get's his sweep. I have a Morley Pro wah not the Power that is nice and worked fine on clean and dist. Currently though I have the 95Q which is bang for your buck wah IMO has a boost on it as well as a Q sweep priced at 100 new.

low, high, classic, as much versatile as I can find.
GNR, Jimi Hendrix, and high gain sometimes.
I saw that the ZW 45 is cheaper then I thought, so now its the ZW 45 vs Morley Power Wah.

ah ok

the big problem is that the better/more versatile wahs tend to be expensive. I'm not sure it's sensible spending that kind of money if you've got a practise amp.

Your call, of course. the CAE wah is pretty versatile and not *that* dear.

Lots of good wahs out there.

You can't go wrong with one of the Original Crybaby Wahs with a Fazel indicator.

If you want something with a little more versatility, something like the 535q or 95q wahs.

Morley makes some awesome stuff too if you don't like the classic style wahs with switches and pots. I would suggest the Bad Horsie, Mark Tremonti wah, or the George Lynch wah.

Custom Audio Electronics, it's a dunlop product. It's true bypass and has two inductors for two distinct sounds,
http://www.jimdunlop.com/product/mc404-cae-wah

If I was going to suggest wah, I'd say find a kit like this
http://buildyourownclone.com/effect...er/wah-kit.html
then add pots for the bass, mids, gain and q settings, add the second inductor (preferably a red fasel for a modern dunlop sound) and the appropriate switches.you aren't going to find a better more versatile wah. it'l essentially be a combo between the Dunlop CAE and 535q wahs.

I have found I like the Morley bad horsie 2 a lot. The wah has a classic mode and it has a mode that the sweep is affected by the knob, so 2 wah's in one. It works really well with Hi-gain and it is on when your foot touches it, so no toe tapping to turn it on and off.

I heard that the bad horsie isnt sounds good on high gain, I'll check it also.

So for now I will try to check:
Morley Power Wah
DUNLOP ZW 45
CAE MC404
Bad Horsie
Dunlop 535q.

CAE is a great all around pedal for any genre/gain.
