1: If you don't play any songs that require wah, no. If you play Jimi Hendrix and the such, then yes they are very important. If you write original stuff, see answer 2.

2: My understanding is that they shift the bass and treble (I don't own one, so don't kill me for being wrong).

3: Though I don't own one, I have heard that the Weeping Demon (Ibanez), and the CryBaby (Dunlop?) series are very good.

ADDITIONALLY: How good is the Slash Wah? I was thinking about getting one.

Well, it's not necessarily a must have.

Basically, it changes the pitch of the note you are playing, making a distinctive "wah" sound.

An inexpensive, but thouroughly trusted, wah pedal is the good old fashioned Dunlop Crybaby.

I'd have to say that is incorrect. A wah pedal uses a potentiometer on the inside to cut high frequencies when in the "toe-up" position, and cuts bass/adds treble when in the "toe-down." a quick shift makes it sound like it is saying "wah."

However, the crybaby is a great pedal.

1. it depends on your choice really, if you like the sound or not.

2. the sound is kinda in the name...... it makes your guitar sound as if its say wah
some good examples are voodoo child - jimi hendrix and most kirk hammet solos.

3. the good old fashioned cry baby, vox, morley bad horsie. there are lots out there

1. Good for soloing sometimes

2. Listen to the soundclips on www.musiciansfriend.com

3. Well, I have a Clyde McCoy wah and I love it. But there are also Teese wahs which are even better. I'd suggest you one of those but they can get expensive.

There not important unless you use them.

Listen to Voodoo Child (Slight Return) by Hendrix

I have a Teese Picture wah which is an exact creation of the Clyde McCoy Vox wah, and thats one of the best you'll get it cost me $165 used.

Ive never heard what one sounds like so i wouldnt be able to point it out in any songs. Could someone record a quick riff and post it so i can get a good idea. Say when its open or closed on or off.
