Heya guys, I'm lookin to get a wah pedal....and I wanna know all the wah pedals that are able to automatically engage the effect when you place your foot on the pedal...in other words, I dont have to step it all the way down and engage the toe switch first...

Also, are there any cons with wah pedals with this design...?? (without the toe switch)


Thanks a lot guys....

The weight sensitive wahs are more likely to break, so if you use a lot of wah get a cry baby as backup

I saw a review for an effect once that you connect to a wah (or distortion for that matter) that allows it to be weight sensitive. It was really cool. Look into it!

Morley pedals...hmmm....I've taken quite an interest in the tremonti power wah.....

also another quick q, the wahs with the toe switch, if i engaged it to turn on, does it turn itself off when i lift my foot off or do i have to step all the down and click on the toe switch again....??

You have to click the toe switch again..
It's somehow irritating, but if you do it fast enough, you barely notice it in your sound.
#7
you have to hit the toe switch again to turn it off. Also the only disadvantage of a automatic engaging wah is that you can't leave the wah on after you take your foot off (like leaving the wah on half way to get a funky sound) I used to have automatic engaging wahs, then switched back to having to hit a botton, and I kinda prefer the botton more.
#8
If it turns out that you don't like the wah that automatically engages you could always try a proximity wah
#9
I see.....cuz the thing I'm having in my mind now is this....I tend to really rock that wah to hell and back when I'm performing, you know, with all that adrenaline pumping and what not, and if had a wah with the toe switch, wouldnt I accidentally turn that thing off...??

Not all Morleys are of the "switchless" variety. I use a Morley PWA specifically because it isn't. It has the switch on the side so you can leave the pedal wherever you like and switch it on and off without disturbing it.

you really have to whack them to turn it off on crybaby's. it's nothing something you could really do accidentally, as you kinda have to push with your toe rather than ankle

i use a Morley Classic Wah which has the same setup, works really well with higher gain distortion.
