Hey guys i'm in the market for a wah pedal and i want some help getting some ideas. Now i no that half of you are going to scream Crybaby Original but i want some more ideas. I really like Crybabys custom series it is very interesting but i want to also look past crybaby. The way has to handle distortion and lots of it. I have a tube amp and some artists i would use my wah to cover would be Hendrix (Ex. Voodoo Child) to Slash (Ex. Sweet Child Solo) to Alice in Chains (Ex. Man in the Box) up to full out distortion Kirk Hammett solo's. Thanks also don't worry bout price etc just shout ideas out at me :P

i really like my fulltone clyde. it has a lot of travel and a very large sweep, there is something adjustable on the inside, but i haven't messed with it. the deluxe model has a ton more features, but i didn't really need any of them.

RMC are all really good sounding too.

I hear Zakk Wylde's Crybaby, and Kirk Hammet's Crybaby are really nice, and I've heard great things about the Vox Wahs. I've only played my regular Crybaby, though you can't go wrong with that, either.

Buy a used GCB-95 and have someone mod it for you. Saves you quite a bit of money and you can awesome wah.

I actually found that the CB original doesn't cut through high gain very well so I bought the Zakk Wylde sig model. It was better but not dramatic enough. I would try something with customizable parameters.

kirk hammet signature wah & the origional.

crybabys are well known for a reason, and its not epic shittyness. its QUALITY.

all the artists you mention used crybabys and some have signatures. cant go wrong with any of them.

Yeah, but how many of them actually use their signature ones? All of them use the custom rack mount one which you won't get out of the over-priced signature ones.

it is nowhere near the qulity of my fulltone. or an RMC or anything like that. i got my clyde for $100 shipped off TGP. cheaper than most signature wahs that dunlop is doing and sounds a lot better, and will last way longer.

I had the current production Crybaby Original for a while. I didn't care for it too much. It only really made the wah sound if you rocked it back and forth. There wasn't a lot going on in the middle of the treadle sweep.

I've heard there are some mods for Crybaby that increase the mid range (I guess what my old one lacked) and make them more vocal. Parts are generally $10 or less.

That said, I'm using a 535Q and it's MUCH better. It'd also be worth looking into the Fulltone Clyde McCoy wahs, RMC and Wilson effects (specifically the Rippah Q Wah).

I didn't much care for Morley wahs. I prefer a lot of throatiness and vocabulary in my wah. I didn't find them very vocal.

I recently bought a Jam Pedal wah... why? It's the wahcko+... it has six positions to control the degree of sweep and tone of the wah, so that it can be extreme or subtle. It uses vintage style controls and pots and has a great sound.
