Hmm, yes, GAS, a terrible thing, so is guitar aqcuisition syndrome...

DILEMMA!

I have a Vox Clyde McCoy reissue, it's good, but it's not the perfect wah for me, I'm after perfection.
I'm severley gassing for a Fulltone Clyde Deluxe (I've found it for £209, cheap for the UK, shut up you damn yanks....I know you can get it cheaper)

What do you all reckon? I have the money for the Clyde Deluxe, but I don't necesarily need it, well I do, but I don't aswell, if you get what I mean. What? You don't? you must be new to all this then...
The main point is, I WANT the Clyde Deluxe, BUT! Would the 209 justify it?


Thankyou your wonderful UG-ness for helping me enlighten my choice in advance.

Well if you don't need it, whats the point of wasting money on it?
On the other hand, the price is decent for it.

can't you somehow order it over here in the US?

and get it for cheaper?
i dont think the shipping would cost 150 bucks (not too sure about the conversion rate)

Whodicted

hmm...

if you really want it and "will be" satisfied more than what you already have then
I'd say go... because if you keep stopping your urge for just that one item, it'll
get stronger and stronger and "might" come back if you don't buy it...

but it's still your decision R_H_C_P...

#6
Can't you sell the Vox one? Then give in to the GAS!
It's such a pity that Englishness, tax and GAS don't mix. There's so much I want to buy, can afford to buy, but I know I cant justify it.

I want to know ALL the details!

And I want it, I use wah so much that if it was that good, it'd definately justify its price.

And I can't be bothered shipping one from the USA, it'd all probably work out the same price anyway.

well the clyde deluxe is 289 bucks over here which would equal about 150 pounds

you really think shipping would be 59 pounds or 116 bucks?

do you use a wah a lot, and you've tried the Clyde and it was boner inducing for the sound you want? If yes to both, hells yeah it's worth it. Don't be afraid to buy the best, because you'll never be sorry you got it. That is of course, assuming the Clyde is your ultimate wah.

That's the thing, I have NO WHERE to try the Clyde Deluxe, I'm just going off sound clips, videos, reviews, opinions etc. It's definately my perfect wah, from what I know of so far, but there's no where to try it at, damn them! Damn them all!

haha, yeah, same boat. I'm severely gassin for a new guitar atm, and there is no place within a 3 hour drive to check out the models I'm interested in.

If you're confident you can resell it without losing a crazy amount, I say go for it. I've only heard good things about that wah.

well if you feel that its your perfect wah, get it. if you hate it, then sell it or send it back. or sell me your Vox and Roger Mayer Classic Fuzz, then spend the money on the Fulltone

^True, I could always send it back.

IF I do buy it.... sell the Vox first, or get the Clyde and worry bout sellin' the Vox later...

i'd buy it first without selling the vox
because if you don't like it (that .05% chance... ) you still have the vox wah

if you DO like it, you can always sell the vox to get some money back

^Right on.
If the gas gets me even more intense, I'll buy, and hopefully never look back!

Oh yea, on several occasions, I've actually dreamed I was playing this wah.

Doesn't that go COMPLETELY against your logic?


Anyway, I'm sure the Fulltone is better than the Vox one. Which one are you planning on getting? The Clyde Deluxe or the regular one?

well i could get a brand new one tomorrow for £119 before haggling so i rek about £100 brand new. if yours is in top class condition and not old id be interested and would give you a good offer. i get paid next week and im not desperate for one but i want one. same as you but for diff pedals.
#22
^Tell me all about it Mr_Hankey!

And yea, it goes against my logic, but if there's no where to try it, what can I do?

Mine's well used, for a good reason, 'coz it's a good wah. It's not broken at all, still plays great, but not brand new condition. However, I slightly cut the rubber stops to give it more sweep, worked well!

It's no more than a year old, I've still got the receipt upstairs, I'll find the exact date tomorrow.

One thing is that it may squeak a bit when you're moving the....foot bit(I think it needs oiling), not much of a big deal anyway, hardly ever does it.
I'm looking for about £80.

lol. i dont want a dimebag wah. vox clyde or a v847a but i rek it will cost far too much in the UK. or a behringer auto wah of course

I think you just want the Fulltone because of the wicked cool enclosure.... can't blame you for that, it's the classiest wah shell I've ever seen.

But, for considerably less $ you can get a drop in kit from area51. They're excellent kits (from what I've been told) and would probably sound the same, if not better, than the Fulltone. You just take out your old wah guts, hook up the new one and you're ready to go.

You seem like you're gonna get the fulltone no matter what... just showing you another, cheaper, option.

I'm not too good at modding, I'm gonna learn more about it later on, but I'd prefer just to get my perfect wah and that be the end of it.

And yea, it's a sexy pedal, but I'm getting it for the sound, playability, versitily and anything else I've forgot.

You gotta do what you gotta do man.

Either way you'll be getting a quality pedal.

Wait a minute.... 209 GBP??? That's like $400 something USD isn't it???

*looks how much it is Canadian* HOLY HELL!!!!

You'd probably be better off getting a nice american friend to buy you one and ship it to you.

^that's what im suggesting...
but he thinks the shipping would cost 110 USD

I've never used it, but it is meant to be that good...I couldn't justify that much for a wah myself (especially as bass is my main instrument) but I don't think it would disappoint you. I know it's the wah Josh Homme uses.

If you're selling your Vox I'd consider it for sure.
#39
That's life.

Anyway, I know shipping isn't that much, but it's too long to wait and risky, and I'd rather buy it from the UK, you can understand that.
