Hi guys i need help on deciding which wah wah pedal to buy.

I want a dunlop crybaby by i'm unsure of which model of pedal is good and at a reasonable price.

I have been looking around the web and seen a few such as the jimi hendrix wah, orginal crybaby ( GCB95), crybaby (535Q). I don't want the zakk wylde one since it's out of my budget range.

I need some feedback on what wah crybaby are good and what aren't.

Thanks in advance!

The standards are the original. That's really all you need. The others have bells and whistles.

I love the crybaby 535Q. I don't have it but my friend has it and I really wish I had gotten it instead of my VOX. Although the VOX is still great. What I love about the 535Q is the "Q" dial on the side of it that allows you to adjust the sweep of the wah. Very versatile. Haven't played the Hendrix one. I have played the crybaby and its cool, but I like the Q better.

The Standards are the suck.

Around here, the general consensus is that the original sounds bad regardless of the lack of "bells and whistles." The Crybaby Classic is better, but if you're looking for a no-frills wah, I'd look into the Voxes.

Vox has THE wah sound, but if you ever want to tweak that sound a little your out of luck. I've had the 535Q for a little over a year and you can get so many different sounds out of it. The "bells and whistles" help tremendously.

so the crybaby classic is the model (535Q)? mmm so i guess an original would do for me since i have a tight budget.

The classic and 535Q are different models. The original crybaby doesnt sound nearly as good as the classic, just because of the electronics used. If you can manage to scrounge up some more cash, go for the Classic.
