OK UG,
So I have a Dunlop original Crybaby and i'm not too happy with it.
Was planning on selling it (cos i don't wanna mod it) and get a new wah.

I know the wah is mostly a funky sort of pedal, but a lot of metal guitarists use them, so I was just wondering what a good wah would be.

Been mostly interested in the Ibanez Weeping Demon.


Thanks Guys

Ive got a Dunlop Zakk Wylde wah - its sweep is a bit too big for funk playing, but for metal it sounds f*kin awesome. Also, my bandmate has the Dimebag crybaby, and imo the Wylde wah completely owns it.

Another alternative you could think about is the Morley Bad Horsie (the Vai one) - loads of people rate it as being one of the best.

Dunlop DCR-2SR that should have enough knobs to muck around with to create the sound you want.

Are there any problems with the weeping demon, cos it seems perfect for me

I prefer the Dimebag Crybaby from Hell, it has an amazing range when you turn it to the biggest range. Or the Morley bad horsie, but it might not be that great theres mixed reviews..

The Weeping Demon is great. There's also the Dunlop 535Q wah which is one of the most versatile wah pedals on the market. If you want something that's just for metal, check out the Dunlop Zakk Wylde signature wah pedal which is perfect for the style because of it's wide sweep, but it's not good for blues or funk.

The weeping demon is a TERRIFIC pedal..too bad I had a shoddy run with it. My weeping demon's footswitch mode no longer works, after only 2 months. (where the pedal stays in place after you take your foot off it, as opposed to autoswitch mode where the pedal returns to its original position). BEWARE: IBANEZ HAS NO WARRANTY FOR ITS PEDALS.

And because of that, I recommend you stay away from it. Perhaps I just got unlucky, but the fact that there is no warranty just kills it for me.

I tried the Weeping Demon. It hit's your tone even when it's not engaged (well at least the one I tried did). Also, the transition from when it's off to when you activate it (in switch-less mode) wasn't smooth at all. It would cut out just before it engaged.

I would definitely vouch for a Weeping Demon over a ZW Wah any day - my friend once had a ZW wah pedal and I was *not* impressed by it.
For metal, I think the Weeping Demon is a great pedal.

I've owned every wah mentioned in this thread (except for the Kirk wah...but I've played it a few times)...and the 535Q is the one thats still on my board.

Its cool, I'm not really keen on shipping either. These things are built like tanks though, so I wouldn't worry about buying used. There really is no way to tell you condition... Its all metal so its just a bit dirty no damage. I guess if you are in the U.S. and don't mind dealing with shipping and all that PM me.

I don't my WD at all. It isn't fat enough. Maybe I'm not good at getting settings or it's my amp.
