'ello GG & A forumers,

I have a question for you all. What would be a good wah pedal for a jazz band? I'm looking to freshen up one of our songs with a wah sound. I'd like to go for a sound that sounds nice on clean, like... the Shaft theme . The wah would be primarily used with clean and light gain. However, the ability to pull off searing high pitched Metallica-esque wah would be nice , but not necessary.

As for a budget, I'm looking to not go above $150. Ideally, it'd be priced around $100 or lower, but I could scrounge up to $150 if the sound is worth it.

Any recommendations based on that? Any help is much appreciated .

Thanks!
- ATB

get yourself a crybaby wah, and mod it to you likings using:


    I did it with my Vox wah... greatest thing I ever did. Turned an 80$ pedal into the equivalent of a truly expensive boutique pedal. And it should only run you 15-30$ on top of the $80 it costs for the pedal (thus keeping you within your price range).

    The modding is fairly easy, all you need is moderate soldering skills and a decent enough guide/photo. Took me maybe 2hrs (but i threw in a special switch to control my foxrox fuzz buffer)

      i agree with this entirely. however, if you don't feel like going the mod route, try to find on of the old '90s Jimi hendrix Wahs.

      Fender Squier Deluxe Strat through a Crate Flexwave (?) 65 watt solid state combo amp. Unfortunately, I don't think the modding route would be best for me, as I have little to no soldering experience...

      I've also had recommendations to check out Morley. How are they?

      Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

      Morley are more suited to heavier styles, IMO. i'll admit the swtichless-ness is convinient, though.
