as your budget is only $100 you should look at getting a v847 or a Crybaby and modding it yourself for like $5

+3 modding it would be a good idea.

Also I picked up my true bypass V848 used for $100 though so keep a look out for used gear and such.

If you don't know how to mod stuff, then you might as well save an extra 50 and buy the V848

^Not true. The first time I ever picked up a soldering iron was when modding my crybaby, and now it has true bypass

whaa? I never knew that existed, how much more does it cost than a a regular v847?
Anyways I'm happy I didn't know about it otherwise it would have stopped me from purchasing "Uncle Clyde".

Yeah, I'm quite dissaspointed in my crybaby from hell now...It may just be something wrong with the wah...but it has no true-bypass and it just doesn't sound all that great...

I'm most likely going to sell it and try check out some vox wahs instead.

is that the vox every1 mentioned and is this true bypass?
http://www.zzounds.com/item--DNPJH1


Careful... the Vox you showed there is not true bypass. They reissued it... its the Vox "V847a" that has true bypass (or so I'm told) www.samash.com has the V847a in.

As for the Hendrix... its the same as the Original Crybaby except for a different cap inside giving a fatter sound and the Jimi Hendrix thing on the front. So its not true bypass.

hey this is somehting i askd in another thread, but i think it could add to the discussion here: how is the morley power wah/volume for 80 bucks?
#29
^Nice. I'm planning to buy that.

But what's the main difference between the 847 and the 848 now?

Yeah thats the one... has an ac jack now too! I might try one of these out myself soon.

Jinskee I think the Clyde McCoy has a different inductor which of course affects tone... never played one so I can't comment that much. Oh an the V848 has a picture of Clyde McCoy on the bottom!

The picture is so worth the 50 bucks!

^it is...i wish i had one
anyway

the clyde is more vocal-y sounding
but i like my v847...it sounds vocal-y enough for me
and it can handle hendrix pretty well IMO

try em both though
you might find that you like one better than the other
and if not..get the v847A...its $50 less

it's good for metal and as a tone filter, but nothing else. it has no sweep.

the only advantage I can see with the 847 over 848 is that harsher sound, it appeals to some, its reason why people choose the 47 over 48 other than price

The Clyde is more vocal, and Hendrixy if used right.

I found the V848 to be alot more trebely and vocal, it also had a bit more sweep. I actually liked the sound of the V847 much better cause the extra treble in the V848 just sounds harsh at certain points. However I needed the ac jack and the true bypass. Also the V848 was $100 used so no price difference.

I'm seriously kicking myself now cause I could have gotten the V847 and the extra features with the V847a. Maybe i'll return my Clyde and by one of these sometime.
