OK i'm looking into getting a Wah pedal my budget is round the £80 mark i already know about the Cry Baby, however i know there are plenty of Wah pedals out there, so i'm open to discussions about the options i have

Morely Bad Horsie. It's got a really wide sweep. Dunlop feels really confined in comparison to me.

I'd agree with JustRooster. One of my biggest regrets in terms of gear purchases is buying a brand new CryBaby GCB-95 over a used Morley Power Wah. Granted the Power Wah is different to the Bad Horsie but having played both and compared them to other wah pedals I think your best bet is to go with the Morley.

I just had a look on eBay and there's actually a Morley Bad Horsie 2, brand new, for £78 with free shipping (from the United States). Some of the used Bad Horsie's are in the £50-£70 range so you can definitely find one within your budget.

I have the standard cry baby wah, with the exception that it is white (it was on sale ).

I don't see anything wrong with it or why anyone would even think of spending $100 or more on a wah pedal.

In my opinion, if you aint diggin' the standard cry baby, you aint' doing it right. It takes a degree of finesse.

Don't be a robot, make love to it.

AND AS FOR THE COMMENT ABOUT PAWN SHOPS:

good luck if you go down that route...I wouldn't recommend it.

Then you aren't doing it right.

I bought my standard cry baby at a pawn shop for $25, and it was in damn near new condition.
You just have to know what you want and how to haggle.

Isn't that how all Wah's work, using a pot to filter the tone?

agree lol.

Morley uses an optical system instead of pot but the results are the same just not mechanical. I use a Morley Classic wah and it's great.

WTF?
If you play heavier types of music, the Original Cry Baby does not cut it.

I prefer the Morley Bad Horsie 2 it is 2 types of wah in one. It has the original Bad Horsie circuit and it has a contour wah that is selectable with a foot switch and the range of sweep is controlled by a knob. I also like the fact the Morley comes on when you put your foot on it, no toe tapping like the Cry Baby.

This is the weirdest justification that I don't get.

Gigging or not, I DGAF. I would never go out of my way to get something worse just because I'm not using it in front of people.

If anything, it would make sense to do that the other way around. The audience doesn't give a shit, they don't care about the differences between gear. Gear is for us, not for them.

Why not look used in your area? I'm sure you can find a used Morley or even the Q-95 cry baby in your budget.

The Ibanez Weeping Demon is pretty nice, if you can get that locally in your budget

Then I'm not doing it right? I simply said I would not recommend it. Someone asking for advice on this topic probably wouldn't do that well haggling in a pawn shop in the first place. I did not say you could not be successful. Pawn shops are generally pretty shady.

Well, its not for everybody I guess.
And you do have to choose a pawn shop well. Some are good, others not so much.

If you go into a pawn shop not knowing the value of something you plan on buying, yeah, you might get burned.
But the same could be said of Craigslist, eBay, GC, or any local music store.

Yah if you know what you're doing and go into the right store, you could walk out with quite the steal. However, you always have to worry about it breaking down in the long haul. I don't know how easy it is to repair those bad boys or how costly
