My friend has a Ibanez Weeping Demon. They are really nice and has some good wah too. I never tried any other wahs but this one certainly feels and sounds good to me.
Fender Jazz Bass
Squire Stratocaster
Yamaha RBX 170(Custom Paint)
Yamaha MagicStomp
Dunlop MXR Distortion +
Morley Dual Bass Wah
Peavey Basic 112

crybaby's are the way to go for a classic rock sound

No Vox are. Crybaby's weren't around, they were moddled after the Vox's. That's why Clapton, Hendrix, Page, Vaughan,all used a Vox 847.

either buy crybaby and mod it (not that hard to do, just ask around on the building and customizing page), or get a vox.

umm...you sure about that? At least not exclusivly. SRV used VOX wah's pretty much all the time but Hendrix? pretty sure he was playing on a crybaby some of the time....and rather...more so than less.

Actually hendrix did play a Vox...A Vox V848 Clyde McCoy Reissue to be exact...get your facts straight

EDIT: To threadstarter: Get a Vox Clyde McCoy reissue..I'm pretty sure thats what Hendrix and Page used

1. Vox 848 Clyde McCoy
2. Vox 847
3. Dunlop Crybaby

Also try the Ibanez Weeping Demon. The wah is ok, not the best, but its cool because you can set it so your foot totally controls the wah, or set it so its set on a spring and you push the pedal and if you release your foot, the pedal springs back. Thats a really nice feature that more wahs should have.
#13
Hendrix played the Vox 847 not Clyde McCoy. And the Clyde MCCoy HAS SERIOUS RELIABILITY ISSUES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But for some reason the 847 doesn't. 99 bucks for a 847+15 dollar true bypass mod= 30 bucks cheaper than a Clyde McCoy.

If you get a Cray baby get it modded if it doesn't suit your tastes or if you like it and want a little more out of it.

man, maybe two people agreed out of all of you

plus it was just explained that the Vox is better than the Crybaby (which i agree with) and you still choose crybaby. oi.
#20
lol. I am gonna go try out a Vox tommorrow just for the sake of it. I don't really need a new wah I'm quite comfortable with my Bud actually.

I'd say the crybaby is a fine choice. The mods only are like 20 dollars to make insanely kick ass.


Got any good sites you know of? I always love checking out mods.

It's a WIP at the moment, I started it with another dude. We're still working on getting all the coding done, and getting a good mod database, but there are some wah mods in there.

Actully Crybabies was around! But Vox made them (kinda). Heres the story.
In UK they were the Vox 847 (or 848, if its a Clyde), but in US they werent a big succes, so Vox wanted to be popular in the US market, so they got Jim Dunlop to start manufacture them. But instead of calling them Vox V847, they called them Vox Crybabies.

Yes.... ...Gabel you own just for the record.

But all those guys used the 847. Not the Vox Crybaby, pretty much the same thing, except for the name.

I have a weeping demon and love it, it sounds great (to me at least, being a wah noob ) and it's VERY versatile, but as far as sound quality goes, I doubt it can compare to say, a Budda or Teese.
I will show you something different from either

It has a very unique sound to it. In a word, it sounds "evil". Or at least through my Roland Blues Cube 60 with EMG humbuckers, all driven hard.

Its not too great for cleans, but I guess if you were to turn the volume down a bit, it could work. It does have a lot of control, as well as a killer bass wah.
