I got a Vox Wah recently and I had heard that it was not the best at handling gain but decided to give it a try anyway. After testing it out Ive decided that it really sucks for gain, so much that its unuseable as a wah for metal solos.

So my question is, can it be modded EASILY to be good with metal solos? (metallica) or should I return it and get the Crybaby 535q or someother wah that is better for metal solos.

Is there a wah that is good at both Jimi Hendrix type music as well as with high gain solos??

Edit: forgot to mention its a Vox 847a wah

I have the Ibanez Wah and it's really good with a lot of gain. You should try either that or one of the Slash (crybaby) Wahs.

Unfortunately the V847a isn't easily moddable, if this was the V847 it would be a different story. The 535q would suit you pretty well, does Hendrix decently and it'll cut through a fair amount of gain.

So I guess its between the Weeping Demon and Crybaby 535q. Anyone had experience with both? Price isnt an issue here btw.

Ah, i just got the V847. I've done the true bypass mod and it makes it a lot better when off. (i noticed it reduced gain slightly) It's good for what i play but i will tell you it's no good for high gain. I'd say, It's an amazing wah for people like me who don't play high gain stuff. But if you want a wah with high gain then you may as well return it and look into something different.

I heard the Weeping Demon was meant to sound weak and sterile. I you want metal wah then maybe look at Morley or the Dimebag Crybaby

You could look at the Fulltone Clyde, it's probably the closest to what you want, i mean it's not brilliant at metal but it will do it and it's one of the best for classic rock tones

He's referring to Real McCoy Custom, not the Clyde McCoy, RMC is a company.

Well i havent tried the WD7 but have heard a lot of bad reviews on it. The 535Q is really good for Kirks wah sound, it gets the really thick sound. It also does Hendrix as well, and has a bunch of settings in the manual. I wouldnt go for the Dimebag wah because ive heard its almost identical to the 535Q, and has all the same controls but costs a bunch more.

Morley would also be good for metal solos.

If price is no issue screw the weeping demon and crybaby.

RMC Wizard Wah FTW.
