The Clyde McCoy is really good, so keep it.

you have an awesome wah already, why would you need another one?

Your wah pedal is fine. But a wah is only as good as the tone it carries. you need a better amp. And play your SG with the selector to the bridge humbucker you get more variation that way.

dunlop cry baby, as used by slash i believe


Slash uses an expensive rack-mounted wah, and the GCB-95 (original crybaby) is nothing like the wahs that most pros use. It doesn't sound the same nor are the components even comparable. Dunlop is essentially trying to sucker you into buying a cheap crappy wah.

yeah, I've borrowed that pedal before and I hate it. But I think the guy from Incubus uses one... Ha.

Mike Einziger seems like the type of guy who would use his wah as a frequency filter, without rocking it at all. The Crybaby has crap sweep, but it could still be used to boost mids or bass.

He's not exactly known for his amazing wah-tone. In fact, Mike's got some pretty whacked out tones if you check out all of their stuff.

Amazing guitarist though.

wouldn't surprise me if he used a rack wah, all the big rich guys do.

and using wahs as frequency filters is fun.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

The Original Crybaby was a disappointment for me until I made a few mods

The 535q isn't so bad. It has alot of different available sounds, but I find it really lacks any special sound to it. It's pretty expensive too.

I'd say just keep the Clyde McCoy, unless you wanna upgrade to a Fulltone or some speciality wah (like the really modern sounding wahs out there).

For Slash, the Clyde McCoy should be fine.

I like my 535Q and find it has a great tone.

It's not that bad, but I feel it lacks character.

Then again I'm not generally a big fan of that weird quick sweep on Dunlops. Some people use it well though (Satch comes to mind).
