I just need a wah that can do both Hi-Gain metal and Hendrix.. With a really wide and adjustable sweep. I've got my eye on the RMC Teese wizard wah. is there a better wah for cheaper?

like you said in the other thread...WHY IN GODS NAME ARE YOU INVESTING IN A WAH?
you're saving for a mesa rectoverb, why are you going to buy a wah and clean out your amp fund?

double fail.

The dunlop jimi hendrix isn't hendrixy at all, and the zakk wylde is just stupid for hendrix.

If you want a good tone for both metal and hendrix, get a vox v847 (really the only wah which will get jimi's signature tone), and for metal, maybe get a crybaby from hell or some kind of morley.

I'd stay away from the ZW wah. I tried one out at a store when I was still a n00b metalhead (I have long since turned from the ways of the br00talz). It was one of the worst wahs I tried that day. I even tried out a 30 dollar behringer hell babe, which I preferred over the ZW wah. The crybaby from hell is pretty good for metal though, but I've heard morley is pretty good too for higher gain stuff.

Oh yeah, those are nice too.
Not sure how they'd work for hendrix though.
Either buy two seperate wahs, or just pick one over the other.
And doesn't Boss have some modelling wah out?

Not really. It's a wah. Usually you're not gonna blend metal and hendrix in the same song. Just switch off the hendrixy wah and turn on the metal wah when you go to a metal song I guess.
I haven't had any experience, but usually do-it-all wahs (or pedals in general) usually don't end up doing a particular sound very well. This may be different, but I still recommend two different wahs.

If you're not buying two wahs, the wizard is probably the best for you.

I thought the point of a wah was to make wah sounds ...?
Actually, the stock vox v847 is a quite incredible wah for clean tones. It's honky and has such a delicious tone to it. But, you are right about the dunlop 535q. That's a good wah.

But to TS: Yeah, weeping demon and v847 sounds like a great combo.

And if you need more info on other wahs, check out the ultimate wah thread.
