Hi all
I am wanting to purchase a wah pedal, i currently have a black star ht5 combo amp and a hagstrom semi-hollow body. I have been looking at the zakk wylde one but heard some mixed reports.

Can anyone recommend a good wah pedal?

I'm not wanting one with all the effects, i am just looking for a basic wah pedal.

Thanks

Budda Budwah.

Very tweakable by setting the rack teeth, less nasal than most, soft top end for less piercing highs.

Lots of vowel sounds, with a really subtle quack.

Also built like a brick ****house.

depends on what you want. i personally *hate* the ones where you have to manually engage them toe down(crybaby, sd, vox). this is not practical for if you just want to briefly flavor a lick or two, since it completely bombards your sound with tons of treble. 'hello audience, i just turned on my wah, your ears will only bleed for a moment.' not subtle at all.

i use the morley tremonti. its voiced nicely for rock, its switchless auto on/off, and it has a db boost for using it to cut thru mixes on solos.

i recently tried the weeping demon. while it is a nice wah and has lots of versatility, the buffer circuit completely neuters your tone, whether the unit is engaged or not. some people dont care about a sterile rig, but i paid a lot for my guitars and pickups so i want to hear them scream instead of being limited by a pedal. the morley i use is not true bypass, but uses a buffer also, yet the tone loss with it is negligible.

hope this helps.

I have a Real McCoy Custom, I like it better than any other wah pedal

Nah, but I wouldn't mind if I was!

Actually, when I got mine, they were pretty rare, but I had to have one.
I tracked one down, owned by a Budda sponsored artist, and bought it.

They caught wind that he was selling their gear, so they dropped him!

If we're talking best w/o a budget, Fulltone Clyde Standard. Deluxe if you want a bit more versatility, but you did say "just a wah".

Fail on all the Dunlop and Vox recs.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.
