I've had my "Original Crybaby" for a couple years, and truthfully i can't stand it. The sounds that i get have never sounded like a true wah. No matter what tone/amp/effects/guitar I use i never get the classic rock solo wah sound.

What wah would you suggest?

Ill pay as much as i need to for a really good pedal.

Thanks alot, dave.

wow. what classic rock sound are you refering to, because correct me if im wrong but the crybaby was "THE wah" back then and most of the guys were using it [granted, along with other effects].

anyway, i myself am a crybaby man. but ive heard good things about voxs wah.

the dime wah is supposed to be good, i have a dunlop jimi wah and it kicks ass, but if you cant get the wah sound you want get the dunlop 535Q or whatever it is, that way u can adjust the frequency of the wah
You get nothing! You lose! Good day sir!

Yeah, I have a 535Q and haven't had any problems getting a good wah sound out of it. I haven't tried the Original Crybaby though.

Has anybody tried all those signature wah's?

I can't decide which i want to get. I don't care about the looks but i just want one that will do the job right for a long while.

They don't let people use 'em at the Guitar Center by me or the Sam Ash. Maybe i'll talk to one of the guys there a bit more see if he'll let me try those out.

From what I hear is that getting a Crybaby is like a lucky dip as some a great and others are not so great, such rubbish or crap out.

This thread is killing me. Those guys back in the day did not use Crybaby wah pedals. They used the original Clyde McCoy vox pedals for the most part. I find Dunlop Crybabies to be highly mediocre. Now, what pedal to pursue depends on your budget.

The Vox V847 is good if you're on a budget, but the V848 Clyde McCoy reissue is a tad better, to me, especially if you're playing classic rock.

If you have a little more money to spend, check out the RMC Picture Wah or Fulltone Clyde McCoy wahs.

I tried both when I went to buy myself a wah, and I found that the V848 is a bit brighter and has a less subtle sweep than the V847, in a bad way.

I side with all those who said VOX. I have the 847. Try 'em out and see if you think the 848 is worth the difference in cost. You may think so. Either way, Vox is THE classic wah, IMHO.

Vox V847 all the way. Bigger sweep than the Crybaby and the tone can't be beat.

AHHH! don't waste money on a new wah! go to this site and mod it

My GCB-95 2.0 owns all other wahs now!


I concur. Unfortunately, most people don't have the time, patience, or skill to mod their own pedals.
