looking for wah-wah pedal.

My budget is around 150$ tops, i haven't ever owned a wah-wah pedal before and have decided it's time to get one. I don't have much knowledge in the field, so i decided to ask for advice here. I'm looking for a wah-wah that's versatile, but more classic, jimi oriented. I like the wah sound of john frusciante, hendrix and want to head in that direction predominantly. I play a strat, FYI.

look around for a used wilson q-wah. i have the 6-position one. you have control over the sweep, the resonant peak and the bass. versatile enough for a bunch of sounds, but not too versatile as to put you off.

John frusciante uses a ibanez wh10v2 wah. I have one and it's amazing for the chili peppers sound and pretty good for that classic hendrix sound. and I play a strat with mine

I'm a big fan of the Morley Mark Tremonti sig Wah. It's switch-less and designed for high gain. With switch-less you don't have to hit a separate button to turn it on an off.

I have a Morley bad Horsie 2 it is really nice and it is switchless which means no toe tap to turn it on or off (it is activated by pressure). It is uasable as a standard wah and it has a switch so you can customize the frequency and level. I paid $69 used for it

morley classic. i play strats as well and have found this to be an awesome wah. the ibanez wh-10 is good as well but can be a pain in the ass to turn on and off.

the morley can be heard on Valley Of Gwangi in my profile

It's cheap and it sounds great. It hasn't got the best sweep, but it's certainly more versatile than most wah's that are worth double its price!

Awesome name, awesome color, good sound, and it's tiny. I dig em.

I have one of the cheaper Dunlops. But I would recommend one.

Yeah when I first got mine I had difficulties turning it on and off too. But now it's easy after repeated use.
