Hi everyone,
I'm new to the forum but I have been going to UG for tabs and have also been skimming through the forum for some research every now and again.
Now I have a question to which I could find an answer yet and I hope there is some people out there that can help me out.
So I have just recently, after using a Line 6 POD for many years, started putting together my own effect chain. Everything is going great except for one thing; the Wah wah.
Every Wah wah I have tried so far sucks tone and sustain and that is a total no go for me.
so if anyone knows any good true bypass wah wah's that don't cost too much (RMC's) please help me out...

peace

Last time I played, my Dunlop Crybaby didn't suck tone and sustain.

I thought he meant in the bypass mode.. like when the wah is off. I also thought that sucking tone when wah is on to be quite natural.. I don't really care much about that.. I actually think that it's always been that way and I like it.

Oh well, then I guess my ears are tone-deaf. I don't really understand what it takes out.. I've tried a Crybaby on numerous amps and haven't really noticed anything different without them.

I have a Dunlop Cry Baby and a Jen Cry Baby Super and I've never noticed tone suck from either of them! Maybe it's just my ears...... eh? pardon? what did you say? lol

Try putting a Crybaby in your chain with it hooked up to one of those Bypass boxes, and with the Crybaby off just toggle between True Bypass and the Crybaby's bypass... and you will find that they have a lot of suck. The original crybaby's are a great modding platform, but stock they lack a lot.

MXR CAE Wah gets my vote. I absolutely love them.

Fulltone Cylde Standard.


Oh yeah! I totally let that one slip my mind!

I had a Fulltone shortly a year or so ago, it was a great wah pedal. Very versatile and good for any style, I just sold it because the sound I liked most from it, was the same sound I got from my modded gcb95.

ok thanks everyone.
I guess true bypass comes at a price... I'll have to save up some money, because I agree that in a bigger effect chain the Crybaby DOES suck tone big time, and so do the cheaper Vox and Morley models, and even the Boss PW-10... tried all of them... same story every time.
I am going to check out the RMC, MXR MC-404 and the Fulltone Clyde then see what I like best.
Thanks again guys

peace
