Im wondering what is the best wah pedal in the $100 price range. A wah is the next pedal on my list, so.

I was thinking about either the Dunlop Original Crybaby, Jimi Hendrix Crybaby, or a Vox V847 wah.

I dont want a Weeping Demon because I heard they are hard to fix and/or modify and with any of the ones I listed I could mod them some. What do yall think?

No, the Vox is WAY better, and nicer to mod.

my friend has a vox 847 which sounds great for clean and classic rock stuff. it doesnt handle a lot of gain well but he doesnt play metal so its not a problem for him. the 847 is also a good pedal to mod with true bypass, etc.

Well I was thinking about getting the Vox. I like it the best so far. But I like all of them thats why I asked yall about them.

Pink I was hoping you would respond to this since I know you know alot about modding pedals and such, because I was wanting something that I can mod somewhat.

So I think I am going to get the Vox V847. Thanks for all yalls input guys.

Well I had a Jimi Hendrix wah about a year ago and I loved it until it got stolen. But now Im going for kind of a vintage, bluesy set-up so I think the Vox would be my best bet. Plus they look nice and sound amazing.

Don't get the Jimi Hendrix Wah, It's the exact same as the original crybaby except it has a 0.022uF capacitor instead of the GCB-95's 0.01uF cap, which definetly isn't worth the extra $20.

What?

When I bought my Hendrix Crybaby I only paid $89 for it. The original is only $69 so I guess you meant $20 and not $200.

^Ya youre right ill edit my post.

EDIT - there, I was looking at the price of the JH Fuzz Wah, not the Hendrix wah, but still, a 0.022uF cap is worth what, maybe 25 cents. Retail sucks.

If you went with the Vox, you made the right choice.

Vox, the Originall Crybaby is absolute shite compared to it.

How hard would it be to mod the Vox to run on A/C? Thats pretty much my only beef from it. But I know that sometimes power supplies effect the sound, so how much difference would it make if I modded it to run from A/C instead of 9v.
#23
You'll need to mod it (very cheap to do) to be able to run with a DC jack.

No sound difference really.

I think the V848 is basically the V847 with a dc power input. There may be some other upgrades idk. I would just get the V848 instead of modding a V847.
#26
The V848 is voiced to sound like a muted trumpet. Clyde McCoy was a famous trumeter, that why its called a Clyde McCoy wah.

The two are voiced totaly different. Its not just that one has a A/C input.
#27
Not totally different, the Clyde McCoy just has a more vocal (and generally better) sound.

Yeah but you can mod the V847 to be more vocal as well. I've never heard the modded V847 but I've played stock 847's and 848's and I prefer the 847's more. The Clyde's were just a little too trebley, imo. But I would rather pay $100 and do about $25 worth of mods and have a great wah, instead of paying $150 and having a wah that alot of others have too.
