I am looking to order some transistors to upgrade a friends wah. I'll probably be getting some 2N5172's but am not sure if I should get a whole bunch of them to select for gain or not.

I'm also not sure what gain level I should be looking for, or if it even matters? As I read that after 200+ there's really no difference.

Are there any benefit to matching the gain in both transistors?

It's just for a crybaby wah, I'm replacing the stock transistors.

check geofex.com - theres a whole section on wahs, i recall reading something about trannies there

You probably won't notice much change between different transistors, but try BC109. You'd be better off doing a bass or sweep mod and/or changing the pot and inductor for more noticeable changes.
