Which is better for modding:
Dunlop CryBaby GCB-95: http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Dunlop-Original-Crybaby-Wah-Pedal?sku=151000
or
Vox V847: http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Vox-V847A-Wah-Pedal?sku=151058
And by "better" I mean which can you make sound better by modding it.

if youre gonna buy something its generally better to get what u actually want. Take a look at RMC wahs for distortion or Buddah wahs for cleans

Too expensive. I'm looking at bang-for-my-buck. $50 for the either (used) + $15 (?) for mods seems like the best deal.

They're exactly the same circuit. Some slight component differences.

Oh OK. So does this mean that any CryBaby mods will also work for the V847?

The V847 is moddable. The V847A which is what you linked is more difficult to mod. The resistors are SMD which are really small and a pain to work with, this really limits what you can do. Though the caps, transistors, inductor and pot are all swappable your still quite limited with not being able to change the resistors.

^OK, thanks for telling me that. That's the only one on MF and GC now.

Good call, I totally forgot about that.

Never had any experiance with the Vox, but I've modded a couple crybabies for people. they are easy to wok on, there is a bunch you can do to them, and you can make them sound niiiiice...

Based on my experience, Vox is easier.

Damn! That thing sounds sick! Anyone wanna tell me what components i'd need to add or replace to make it sound like that? And if the Crybaby and Vox have the same circuit, I could still do those exact same mods to the crybaby......

Ok. Is the gain what gives it that kinda growly sound too when he's in the low-middle area?
