I'm looking at getting a wah pedal but would rather not pay through the nose for one just because it's a signature, although having said that, if the signature one is the best choice, then sure.

My budget is roughly £100 but it's flexible.
Funny words.

I think the Zakk Wylde Crybaby is only $5 more than a normal Crybaby. And it's made of metal instead of plastic. So not only does it sound different (lower in the frequency range), it'll take more abuse.
I liked mine when I had one. Good for metal.

The Zakk Wah is either 129 or 149 US think It's 129 though used you can find them cheaper, The Zakk wah is cool it's great on Hi gain as the better low and top ends give you better sweep though it has no middle really so if you don't care about the in between your fine. It works ok on cleans as well but again you have no middle ground. The Tremonti power wah I don't think is in production though you could find them on ebay I'm sure as well.

Get a Morley maybe? Tremonti uses it, no?
It rules guitarists with an iron fist. It is their mistress, and it is their haunted soul....Kingdoms (of tone) rise and fall and bend to its will. It is the siren. It is the dryad. It is the beautiful cruelty. It is delay.

for $170 you could get the MXR MC404 CAE Crybaby, which can sound like any wah pedal there is. I have it and its awesome, it has a drive pedal built in but you can only use when your using the wah

YES. The frequency sweep on Morleys is incredibly useful. I have the Steve Vai model and it's as perfect as a wah can get.

No crybaby I know of is made of plastic

Zakk Wylde has a signature Dunlop Crybaby..


And I'd rather not pay through the nose for a signature model, as I said.

I would look into the Zakk Wylde but in the UK the price difference is roughly £90 for the Zakk Wylde and £55 for the crybaby, how different are they exactly?
Funny words.

The £55 crybaby is ok... Good for an introduction to wah, but you can pick them up for eff all at like cash converters and whatnot (I got one for £17, just so you know I'm not BSing you).

However, when you get used to it... It gets abit sterile?

I suggest the Morley Tremonti Wah. Check it out, it's damn fantastic! The extra large sweep is hard to get used to after a crybaby, but once you do... JESUS CHRIST! it will blow your mind.

Adds an entire new depth to your sound

Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.


Greatest quote of all time?

I think so...
#12
I suggest any of the Morley wahs really. Been using a Morley Bad Horsie 1 myself, excellent piece of kit. Great sweep and has lasted me a long time.
#13
I vote Ibanez Weeping Demon. Very versatile and sound awesome. You can pick one up for under £100 used.
#14
i prefer the Morley Tremonti wah myself. I like that you dont have to press anything for it to come on and off and i MUCH prefer the sweep on them. Crybabys...just not a fan of them
#15
The Morley Tremonti is amazing, I used to have one but I sold it 'cause I was pretty tight on cash. You could get one used for like £75 if you look around.

How is the Morley Classic actually?
It rules guitarists with an iron fist. It is their mistress, and it is their haunted soul....Kingdoms (of tone) rise and fall and bend to its will. It is the siren. It is the dryad. It is the beautiful cruelty. It is delay.
