Am I the only one who is pretty much sick of a wah pedal... Every time I hear one now I tune right out. It is so rarely used well in my opinion. Shame too, because it is/was a truly fantastic effect.

the wah pedal like any effect can rule when used right but I can honestly only think of a few times that I've really liked it in a song. But QOTSA and Tool have both used it to good effect before

No, because you've never heard the glory of a fog machine solo played through a wah. It really overturns everything you once thought you knew about music.
#11
eddie hazel and his friends are literally the only people to ever use a wah without sounding like asshole

It's pretty tough these days... i mean it is a pretty beaten path.

BTW - Wormholes it is all over techno, reggae, porn and many many forms of 'art'. : ) Like a fungus... or an STD... you pick

one time i heard the brokencyde guy whammy without a whammy on his fog machine through a wah pedal through this one amp

i don't think it was a tube amp but it was a hifi stereo amp

it was actually an acoustic electric fog machine but he filled it up with sand to make it sound like a solid body electric

it was life changing

I used to love my wah back when I listened to musicians/bands that made the most out of it. Nowadays, none of the music I listen to (with the exception of Dinosaur Jr. and Hendrix) use any wah pedals. Naturally, the style that I developed did not match or require a wah, and now usually when I hear wah solos, they just tend to be obnoxious to my ears.

So I sold my wah pedal and I don't think I'm gonna be getting another one any time soon.

Because I had the same one for YEARS and one day I just decided that I was sick of it and it was taking up space in my line so I just ditched it and I don't see myself owning another one ever again.

Not to mention it was literally the first pedal that I ever bought.

Makes perfect sense to me... a Wah has been a stale of most people's rigs for decades.

Who even uses a wah pedal still outside of ancient bands stuck in the 70s and 80s

This some sick banter right here.

Also, yeah, my wah pedal is a glorified paper weight. I can't find any useful applications for it.

you didn't need your wah pedal because you are already enough of a crybaby

I've never liked wah pedals and not just because they are overused. They sound stupid.

I really don't understand why there are guitarists who use pretty much no effects pedals, only to suddenly stamp the crap out of their wah pedals when they do a solo
I have nothing important to say

Wtf? Are you like that in real life? Just calling people out on stupid stuff that doesn't bother anyone just for the sole purpose of making them feel bad and not like you?
#35
no need to be such a dunlop crybaby about it

I never understood how the wah always gets misused, it's a very expressive effect. Apply it like you would bends and vibrato, accentuate the notes. Voila, you don't sound like a wanker, and added dynamics to your playing.
