As the title says, I need to get me a Wah-Wah pedal soon, and I need to know a few things before I go out.

1. What's the best brand/model and whatnot?

2. How much do they cost?

3. Where would I get one?

Also, other recommended pedals would be nice, too. I generally play... well, I play everything equally, except for country. Mostly Metal and 80s Stuff.

dunlop crybaby 535q. it handles distortion pretty well. $120 i believe at any GC.


Or that. I'd only recommend Dunlop none of the other gay-ass "metal" wah-wah pedals.

you should wait for the dunlop eddie van halen wah to come out. I dont know how much it is but it is very sexy and it plays well i'm sure like all his other mxr pedals.

Dunlop 535q great sounding wah, fairly versatile, reasonable cost. I run one with a "hot british" tube pedal before the wah and all my other distortion after it. with the hot british pedal on, and everything else clean, it gives a great "hendrixish" wah.It is a fairly classic sounding wah, don't expect any buckethead sounds out of it.

I use the Morley Bad Horsie 2. I'll admit it's not as "classic" sounding but I like wider sweeps anyway. Morley does make classic sounding wahs. I prefer Morley because they use an optical sensor as opposed to the mechanical style. I owned a Dunlop once and after years of use it developed a scratchy noise in it with the toe down. I cleaned the pot which fixed it for awhile then it came back. The second cleaning did nothing so now it's a doorstop.

fretboardragon yes the 'morley bad horsie' aint classic, but the 'morley classic wah' is and it owns the dunlop crybaby, i tried both and the morley was much better

Ibanez WD-7. If you play metal, there is no equal. It can handle anything from country to metal (with the best tones under metal, (un)fortunately), and it has a feature that no other wah has, a Bass setting, which wahs the bass frequencies instead of the treble.

It eats batteries like a mother fucker, though, so get an adapter, please.

Oh, and it's about 70 bucks cheaper than the 535 Q. EDIT: It sells for $99

Features include a Q setting, which completely owns the switchable voices of the 535Q, a Low setting, which provides a low end boost when the wah is engaged, a boost switch, so you can boost your wah above your normal setting (I don't use this), adjustable friction on the pedal, for the people who like to fight with it, and two (count 'em) modes of operation: Standard, in which you push a button (conveniently located on the side, to prevent accidental turn off), and Spring loaded, which engages whenever you wah with your foot. The spring has adjustable tension. The spring loaded operation can set the delay time for how long after you take your foot off the wah effect stops (can be useful sometimes), and finally, there's a frequency adjustment knob, which changes the voice of your wah even further.

As you can see, I love this product, and I'd buy another, but that would mean I'd have to use one of them less.

Best wah is a Teese Real McCoy Custom.

http://www.realmccoycustom.com/

Now, out of those all you have to do is pick what sound you're after, and Mr. Teese will help you a ton if you're having trouble. RMC 1 is standard, for single-coils, RMC 2 has a Q control, RMC has internal trimpots for everything. They also have a few special models and a Joe Walsh signature.
#19
Vox and Dunlop don't handle gain well at all, with the exception of the 535Q and the Crybaby from Hell. If you've got the money, Real McCoy is probably the best you can get.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
#20
Ok i too am looking to get a new wah but everyone here seems pretty divided. I decided to look at the gear alot of the bands i cover use, but they all use different wahs lol. Iv split it down to a Crybaby CB95 or a Morley Classic Wah, which is better?

If you play metal, neither.

Ibanez Weeping Demon.

People that dont include them on their list have never played one. They are BY FAR the best, most advanced, most usable wah, that has ever been produced.
Dunlops are OK, for sure, but my origianl crybaby, and hendrix wah's havent been used since I got the Ibanzez.

The ability of having 2 differnt ways to activate is great too. No audible click in wha mode.....like on Dunlops (mine anyway). Who cares what Buckethead plays......he doens tpay for anything......for $100 this thing is a great deal.
