Hello there Ug guys.

I know there has beed several thread about wah pedal for metal, but I still want to ask for myself so here I go,

I am currently playing in a band a I decided that I want to use wah pedal on some of my guitar soloes, but I don't know what to but a wah suddenly, because I don't have experiece with it.
I am playing in my Ibanez, drop C tuning, we play metal, thrash metal, or even death metal..

HHmm, lamb of god is one of our insparation for the riffs and songs, but my most inspiration is metallica, and some classic rock like GnR, band FOR my soloes..

Budget doesnt matter right now, please come with your opinios..
Tnx

P.S. sorry for my bad english


EDIT : This is the best music store we have here in Denmark and the only wah pedal available they have. Maybe they have more in the store.. But chose for these pedals..

I believe Kirk Hammet uses a Crybaby sometimes, and sometimes a Morley.

There are different wahs for different sounds, and it all depends on what kind of sound you're looking for.

If you're looking for a wah like metallica uses in the Black Album, you should try out some auto-wahs or dyna-wahs, that work themselves. There is a slight difference in sound between automatic wahs and manual wahs, and a good way to hear it is by listening to the solo in "Sweet Child of Mine", and then listening to the solo in "Enter Sandman"

There are a few good dyna wahs out their, but not many. I recommend Boss, just because all of the Boss pedals I own are great. As for manual wahs, look for Dunlap Crybabies. I own the Wylde Wah, and it's pretty heavy duty if you are rough on your gear, although there are no controls. There are a bunch of Crybabies out there, so try out things at a music store to see what you like.

Ibanez Weeping Demon is great for high gain stuff. It's got a level control, Q, and hi sweep control, plus a fine a tuning range and two options as far as turning on the wah is concerned (rock mount and toggle) and the amount of time the pedal stays on in the rock mount position. Plus, you can adjust the amount of resistance on the pedal itself. 100 dollars and true-bypass.

It doesn't sound as creamy as a CrybabyQ, but it handles gain much better.

Well thnks for the opinios. But I forgot to say that all of our song is with 'growling' so its basically death metal.

Here is a sample of our song before i joined the band. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_jPNBmnSQk

Its that style of music we plays so its hard to decide for me which one should I buy.

IMO, it sounds horrible.

EDIT: I still recommend the Teese RCM3 or Wizard over all other suggestions.

check out the morley tremonti wah, i gt it last week after considering the 535q n weeping demon and i am so happy with my choice. Its great for heavy **** its gt an adjustable boost so your solos will cut through its amazing. Its pretty slick on the cleans if used right quite versatile but suited more to distorted stuff.

I like the bad horsie, but tremonti is prolly better for metal. It adds quite some distortion on a clean channel, so if you're gonna use the wah on any type of clean channel, the bad horsie is better.

^^+1 i like my badhorsie II, i feel it gets the job done for heavy distortion, but i have problems with it "cutting through"


but i'd go with the tremonti for this, though i feel the bad horsie handles cleans better, the tremonit will do better for distortion.

Unfortunately I've never been able to try out a Morley or anything other than the Dunlop wahs. I played through the Dime, Hendrix, Slash and Wylde wahs and I have to say I was most impressed with the Zakk Wylde signature. I'm surprised no one has mentioned it yet.

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.

I compared a few wahs when I bought my one, can't remember what they all were but I remember being very dissapointed in the Crybaby Origonal, ended up with the Morley Power Wah and I'm very happy with it.

RMC Wizard Wah.

The Kirk Hammet wah is horrendous.
Every time the toe goes down I cringe into the beetle position and rock back and forward.

the weeping demon is absolutely *not* true-bypass. please please please educate yourself so you will know what the hell you are talking about. in fact, that is the paramount issue with the weeping demon, it sucks the tone out of your rig and leaves your sound completely sterile, even when not engaged.

lmao...and what the hell is 'rock mount?'

TS, go with a morley, specifically a tremonti or generic power wah.
