I'm a shredder, more specific, 80s hair band shredder and am about to have my first practice with my new band. We are going to play 70s rock up through todays stuff, like shinedown and tokio hotel. But, we are keeping the 80s hair metal in there too. I am looking at the zakk wylde wah, but was wondering if any of you have any insight into the tone on certain pedals? I don't want an original crybaby because I believe they are too high pitch. I have read the zakk pedal is a lower tone and I love his sound. Anyone want to chime in that's using a bad horsie or other pedal? Thanks in advance.

And so are you. Reported.

TS: Try the Zakk Wylde wah before you buy it. Some people love it, some people hate it. That's pretty much how it is with all wahs. All preference!

he weepin demon is a pretty sweet pedal I have one and as for style me and you are in the same boat. The demon has a range selector that says low or high and you can really shape the color of the wah with the eq on the pedal.

i wouldn't go with the weeping demon, because it's all digital and if it breaks, there is nothing you can do about it but buy a new one, whereas a crybaby, vox, budda, hiwatt, etc, can be repaired easily by you or someone at the guitar store.

I'd say get a used Crybaby or a Vox wah and mod it to your specs. if you go with the crybaby, get the older ones. especially if you're buying the standard, because they have really gone down sound-wise since the mid nineties.

try out the Dunlop 535Q. it's a very versatile wah. it can get you many tones.

err, what exactly makes it analog? there are no pots on the pedal, there isn't even a switch under the pedal. IMO, the Tonelok as a whole are not that well made. i had a TS7 for about a week before it crapped out on me.

The Zakk Wylde Wah has an extra fazel in it which gives it a thicker sound. It's pretty cool.

The Vox wah is a really solid wah too, but my favorite is the Slash model CryBaby. It's got twice the power of the other Wahs (18v as opposed to 9v,) and a switchable distortion circuit that's just kick a$$.

Try out as many as you can is my advise though.

just to put in my 2 cents... I like the Slash wah...it is very "tweakable" to the sound you want with 3 trim pots under the bottom cover plate, I believe, Bass, Treble and High.
