hey,
so yeah im gona be getting a Crybaby next week,
one of the 3 most likly, the other guitarist in my band has the Dime CFH, he does most of the shred solo's and i do most of the melodic solo's, so i was thinking the Slass one would be nicer

Zakk Wylde wah is meant to be ****e
Dimebag one is meant to be good
Slash one recieves mixed reviews due to its price

Generally Dunlop are considered a bit crappy

The Dimebag one for sure. It's the best Wah pedal out there, and I'm a typical GCB-95 fan. It simply covers more than any other, and the adaptability does not come at the cost of sound quality. I find that pedal absolutely brilliant(and I don't even own one). Can't say much about the others, sadly, but the Dime one is worth an arm and a leg.

Get the 95Q it's way more versatile than any of the signature wahs.

generally all crybaby's are crappy, unless you get one of the old ones form the 60's or something, but if you have the cash, go for teh slash one as it has the most features, i personally would get the Dime one tho

you can't judge by that, because teh artists sound is goes through so many modifications and such, it'll never sound teh same, even if you have all teh same equipment as them, theres still a lot going on behind the scenes, for example, john petrucci has an orange back stage (or he did at one point) so you can't always judge by that

Agreed, the 535Q is an amazing wah, its almost the exact same as the dimebag wah, minus the camo, works for any style and has a good thick sweep and is very adjustable. Go for it!

Also on those albums they could have added eqs, compressors and what nots. It's also been mastered. So yeah you can't judge by that.

the slash one has to win some extra points cause of the nice colour, plus the led lights look good in the dark.

what is the tool for that comes with the pedal? there was no instructions on what to do with it in the box with my wah

check out the "Wepping Demon," ( i know its by ibanz but..) at least consider this its a great pedal

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-WD7-Weeping-Demon-Wah-Pedal?sku=150344


absolutly not. the WD is by far the cheapest, poorest excuse for a wah iv ever seen..and not because UG says so, it's because i bought one before my 535Q.

1. bad craftsmenship on the pedal, cheap material
2. terrible sound, even with the tone shaping controls that wah has the dullest sweep iv ever heard. it hardly cuts through the mix.
3. tone sucker, with either the 9V or the adapter it still has a horrible buzzing sound when not being used

i recommend the slash wah - the distortion on it is awful, but the wah has a great sweep and is obviously very "slash" like - i have found other crybabys to be a little "thin" sounding, but the slash sounds great. just dont use the distortion circuit!! it has true bypass too!

And all the other comments by shredhead should be very considered coz the 535q is the best wah.

+1 I love my slash wah! Distortion sucks but that is not why I bought it.

Have you tried looking at a Black Cat Moan? The Moan function gives you a real punchy boost that's great for those wilder hi-gain metal solos. It's good to get in that screechy territory right away without spending hours twiddling knobs. It sounds like it's designed for the kind of stuff you want to do.

It's cheap too. The distortion on it's own is kind of interesting and Vox-like, a little synthy but it's only there as an extra gimmick, it's meant to be a gain boost for the Wah, so you don't have to put an OD before it to pierce through heavy distortion. Has a setting for Basses too. No Q option, though, but twiddling the Moan knob can have a similar effect, and you can choose from Vox and Crybaby style(personally I don't find the crybaby style to be all that great, I guess I'm into more funky wah though, still worth checking out either way since from other people who've used Crybabies it's meant to be accurate).

Only problem is it's pretty ****ing huge and heavy, moreso than a Crybaby.

The Black Cat Moan is a good alternative to the WD. It's definitely not cheap, but I'm guessing it's "Moan" is similiar to the WD's "Weep".
