Well I saw the new Dunlop Slash Signature Wah online today and I liked the features and now I'm wondering, is it worth getting it? Do you think it will suit my playing style? Or will the Vox wah's be better? (I play a healthy mixture of classic rock, hard rock and blues/jazz btw)

EDIT: Replies would be nice

Don't do it, get the cry baby 535Q, it gives you flexibility so that you can play any style

What about the Vox V848? You think that'll be better?

Vox, or modded Crybaby.
I'm not very active here on UG currently.

If it looks that interesting to you, try one out.

I'd say go for a Vox, I'm gonna sell my Crybaby soon for some type of Vox wah.

The Slash wah is like a super 535Q. it has more features me thinks, also has the battery in the treadle. Its a new wah so you'll have to try it out rather than go by reviews on it.
#12
for a vintage sound, def. a 535q, i love mine so much i wish i could have its babies.

I don't think that Slash wah is the same as a 535Q. It only has a volume and gain control, no Q control, and I don't think it's true bypass, or at least it's not listed in the specs. I'd also rather have a built in volume boost than a distortion circuit, I like using my amp for overdrive.

^x2. It doesn't have a Q control, those silver knobs are for volume and gain.
#15
I'm new to wah's. What on earth is a Q?

^It's a letter in the alphabet.

It could also mean a knob for the range of the wah frequencies.

Ahh...But the Vox wah's don't have a Q control either, and that's the only other wah I'm looking into. If it hasn't even come out yet, why so many negative judgements about it (referring to the slash wah)

Because it's expensive for what it is, and it doesn't seem too different from other Dunlop wahs, although we could be proved wrong if someone tries it and really likes it.

After reading some reviews on the Dunlop wahs that they have many problems (i.e. switch won't work anymore, it broke) I think I'm gonna get a Vox

^Which Vox?
I'm considering going Vox too, I've had enough of my Dunlop Crapbaby's terrible sound.

Exactly what I'm looking into, I need to go and compare a few wah's with eachother first.
It's apparently very vocal, exactly what I'm looking for, something very Hendrixy.
But.... I've heard there's lots of reliabiliy issues from it.

Yeah I'm going for that Hendrix-esque sound too...The only reason that I stumbled into the slash wah is cause when I was searching for wahs in Musiciansfriend, I sorted it by customer rating and the slash got a pretty high rating

EDIT: Is there any wah that doesn't have any reliabilty issues?

EDIT: The page I was looking at: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/home/navigation?page=1&N=100001&Ntk=All&Ntt=wah&Nty=1&Ns=P_RatingOverall%7C1
It got an even higher rating than the Clyde!

have you checked out the Budda wah yet? It sounded perfect for the classic rock and blues stuff, very nice smooth vocal quality about it, at least from all the clips I've heard. Make sure you post a review of the Slash if you end up getting it, there are a lot of curious gearheads around here, including me.

I think I'm gonna gather up all the guts I have and get the Slash. I mean, last time I came and asked UG for help with buying something (My Gibson SG Special Faded) I got mixed results, but when I ended up buying it, I loved it

Any chance you can go to a shop and try before you buy?
If not, hope you like it!

Well it doesn't go on stock anywhere til May 26-30 so there's absolutely no chance yet...Also, the closest guitar center where I live is about 45 miles away, so I usually get my stuff online. Although there is another local music store that's closer, I doubt they'll have it in stock. I'll just play it by ear for now (not referring to guitar)

No he used a rackmount crybaby

The 848 has reliability issues. Basically they all used 847's. Get one and mod it for true bypass, great pedal.

Ya, my 535Q broke or something (it's either the switch or the pot) and i'm thinking of just getting a Tremonti Power Wah or a Bad Horsie.

I do love the sound of the wah though...
#38
i personally think that the crybabys have terrible midrange and sweeps, and the vox tone-parody and honking just doesn't suit me either

before you buy look into a Budda wah, and my personal favorites, the Teese/RMC wahs

http://realmccoycustom.com/

Wizard wah is 175 and great for the money, RMC3 is another buy, but more costly

(the rest are mainly designed just for certain pickup setups etc.)

UPDATE: The slash wah has been delayed for since forever and I got a great deal on a Vox V847. Is it any good?
