This is poll on what you think would be the best overall wah. I woul like to play classic rock, a tiny bit of funk and just some of my own creations so i would like versatility. i would like to keep the price under 150 but i want a high quality long lasting one.

Options:

Ibanez Weepin Demon 7 - 100
Dunlop Original CryBaby - 70
Dunlop CryBaby 535q - 130
Vox 847 Wah - 90
Vox 848 Clyde McCoy Wah - 150
Budda Budwah - 170
Fulltone Clyde standard WAh - 210

Also, is it a big deal to get true bypass? Please explain your choice unless you dont have time.
#2
Vox V847 or Clyde McCoy would both be good choices. If you can stretch the price the Fulltone Clyde would be brilliant.
#3
I hear the weeping demon is good.
I almost bought it, but I've decided to wait and get an od and delay instead.

Get the V847 and mod it to Clyde specs for a couple pennies.

I prefer the Weeping Demon, but that's me. I know a lot of people who hate it.

I have a Dime Crybaby From hell, I love it but the wheeping demon is good 2 but Im not sure for your type of music, I'd go with the ones I know (i havent heard much on the other pedals listed) but Id go with one of the 2 cry babies, but there might be something better suited for u, happy hunting dude

V847. Get the A. It's got a 9v adaptor. Trust me. It makes life easier

DO NOT GET THE A! why would you get the A when you could get the regular one and install true bypass and buy a 9v transferer for yourself (they come with those 1spot things.) And you can mod the V847 regulars alot more. Go for the Vox v847 (not the v848 clyde, its really whiny!) unless you can afford the Fulltone Clyde standard...

I have two votes. My#1 idea would be an Area 51 wah. New they are $200 but you can find them used for wayyyy less. I got mine, the Area 51 circuit board and switch inside a Vox V847 enclosure with a Fulltone wah pot for only $110. Now on to it's tone. It is by far the most vocal wah ever! It has a huuuuuge sweep. I can rip Hendrix style licks all day. It is also funky as hell.
My second vote is for a Teese wah, whichever one suits you most. Richard Teese is a real innovator and has some great designs.

Meh. I like mine. Isn't that all that matters? Besides, I'm not much of a modder.

ive read that thread calm down. it just didnt really answer my questions as well as this one would. a poll makes it alot easier to keep track of what people think. i dont want to go making a tally sheet for the the whole thread. Maybe you shouldnt be ignorant in thinking that i am.

Anyways. So i listened to some more sound clips and i liked te vox and crybaby 535q for the versatility. I like the fulltone too its just that it costs a lot for one pedal for me. id rather go a little less quality and pay 70 dollars less. Also im not going to mod until maybe a year or two from now because i want to be safe first. I know its probably better and cheaper but i dont want to do it, not right now so thanks but nothanks. Please from here on dont suggest modded ones, instead suggest alternate ones that are good quality but not fulltone.

and you can give a brief review if you would like.

So against Crybaby535Q vs. Vox 848 Which is better?

Dunlop Crybaby original vs. Vox 847 which is better for modding?

Also vox v847 and vox 847a? whats the difference?
#24
^
The vox, IMO. Try them out though.
Depends on your genre. Crybaby for heavier stuff, Vox for cleans and blues
The v847 is better. The V847a has surface mounted components which make it hard for modding. That's what i've heard.

for clyde specs it's a bit more than couple of pennies...

get some whipples and transistors, u'd want true bypass as well.

What transistors do you put in to make it better?

I know about the whipples and true bypass.

i put in BC109Cs, but BC109Bs sometimes sound smoother. but there's hit/miss on the Bs. Cs are pretty consistent.

I think Voxes are more versatile than crybabys.
And I just prefer the tonality to voxes too.

yeah but its much harder to find v847a mods on the internet and im new to modding so that'll be hard. what if i went with a higher up crybaby? Maybe a 95Q or a clssic crybaby?

Well, 535Q's are much more expensive than V847A's, so it's not really worth it.

Just try and mod the A. It wont be that difficult.

^Don't they have surface mounted parts, or something like that? Doesn't that make it difficult to mod?
I may be wrong, maybe ECisthebest can clear that up, he has a good amount of wah experience.
