I wahs thinking about buying a wah pedal but I'm nott really sure waht a good wah pedal would be. I mostly like to play metal, not death metal but like hard rock and thrash and metal like BLS and Pantera. I wahnted to know if theres any good ones I can find under 100$ canadian because I have 100$.

the weeping demon is also kinda digital sounding and has some major tracking problems.

If you like Pantera and BLS, i'd say go for the Crybaby From Hell. It's extremely verisitle, you can tweak pretty much everything.

Trust me, it's like having 2-3 wahs in one. It can handle everything.
#16
yeah the dimebag wah is nice too. thats my second favorite after the classic (or a modded standard)

Kirk hammett uses the EMB audio remote wah most of the time. i don't think he ever uses the crybaby classic. still if he does it would be modded like crazy

i tried the stock and IMO it wasn't that good at all. sucks alot of tone too.
#18
Okay, let's run through this -

Vox V847- Awesome Classic Rock wah
Weeping Demon - I don't really like this much, quite harsh sounding
Crybaby (Classic + GCB95) - No, just no.
ZW Crybaby From Hell - Absolutely pathetic

Okay, now the serious suggestions:

Morley Power Wah: From experience, it's absolutely awesome for high-gain stuff and is very competeively priced, doesn't do cleans very well though
Dimebag crybaby - decent for metal, but expensive for what it is
Morley Tremonti: Another good heavy wah from Morley.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.
#20
Morley Steve Vai Signature Series Bad Horsie II, maybe.

Slash wah if you save up a little moar money?
Idk, Velvet Revolver concert and it sounded great, but whenever Musicians use their signature gear, it turns out sounding a hell of a lot better than it would if we were to use it.

Yeah, what about the Steve vai wah?

^ I didnt think Slash actually used his signature wah? I thought he just used Dunlop Rack Wahs :S

vox wah


Not good for metal at all...

I tried it with high gain and it was far too subtle sounding. I tried it with clean but it was a really noticeable and really nice wah.

Vox wah = great, but ****e for metal.
#26
Check out the Boss V-Wah. I got on eoff of eBay for about $80. I had it for a while but I had to sell it to make ends meet. I loved it. I'm totally gonna buy another unless I get the GT-8 which has one in it, supposedly. I owned a Crybaby 535 and I really didn't dig it. Maybe a true bypass mod and inductor/cap mod woulda done the trick but I didn't wanna go through all that. The Boss V-Wah has user defined sweep range a bunch of different modeled wah voicings and if used as just a wah, very easy. It is a great wah for metal/thrash IMO. I know the tone purists and their $300 boutique wahs will scoff at me but that's how I feel.

Looking for that wah sound Michael Ammott gets on Arch Enemys albums? The V-Wah can do that.

He has a rackmount version of his signature wah pedal. Basically a hybrid between the 2SR rackwah and his pedal wah. At smaller shows, he uses the sig pedal.

So whats the outcome. Lets say not the best of both worlds but still something decent?

im not sure on the slash wah, it sounds pretty good with my dsl401 on the clean channel but its sounds like sh1t on the gain channel for some reason, thats with the gain off on the wah, although it sounds good with the distortion on my me-50
#34
Definately try the crybaby 535Q. You can customise the sweep to however you want and it sounds excellent for metal solos.
#35
the 535q for a budget versatile wah, but my choice would be fulltone clyde deluxe, you can go from VERY voodoo chile sounding, to heavy wolfmother (start of joker and thief) sounding. And anything in between if u tweak it to wacked, and change the Q knob. Very good wah pedal. Like the vox but without the nasalness with gain on, and has the widest sweep of any wah i tried
#36
^Yeah, but he wants a cheaper waharound $100(the 535q is a fair bit more also). You can always go used i guess.
#37
Since this thread is about wahs; how much would a rarely used Dunlop Crybaby wah sell for? I've had it for 4 months and I'd rather use the money I get to but a distortion pedal.
I meant I'd use the money to buy a disortion pedal
#40
Either here or eBay... if it's only 4 months old and in good shape you probably could squeeze almost $50 from someone for it.
