yes i'm not looking to mod my wah on my own, i know most mods are easy, but:
1. i'm too lazy
2. i'm not too good at customization like things, and i'm not looking to completely ruin my wah either
now i love the wah as it is (btw it is a gcb-95 wah, the original i believe)
but i'd love it even more if
1. it had true bypass
2. had some better components in it
3. maybe a wider sweep range
i know the classic crybaby gets a bad reputation, but i've already replaced 5 different pedals on my board, and i'm not looking to get a new one
and it also seems theirs no winning in buying a completely new wah, i'm looking for something that could handle clean and distorted sounds easily, most wahs are one or the other
so if you're a modder and looking to mod a wah for money post, or if you know where or who will than also post.
any suggestions welcomed

eh i doubt that would work well
i bet it would just make you're sound very fissy
again i'm interested in getting a wah, by mod, or buying a new one, that will handle clean and high gain stuff pretty well
i'm not looking for a masterful wah
again i am pretty satisfied with the crybaby i have now so i'm not that obsessed over quality
but i would like to get it modded to at least true bypass, and some of the other things too

True bypass is pretty simple and gets rid of the buffer at the same time. Dont know how you could give it more sweep the peddle will only rock so far.

I've just done a mod on my Cry Baby, same model, I changed the 1.5k resister to the left of the furthest right capacitor with a 2.2k (sounds complicated but there are some pics or links to pics on the official wah moding thread which show this clearer). It was easy to do.

It boosts the mid tones which the Cry Baby lacks. giving it a more gradual sweep, the very high end still has its sharpness which is good for pick scrapes (Voodoo Chile style). Really good mod, made a big difference.

I am hoping to do this mod as well, but I have the Rev E gcb pedal so its a different layout.

Any chance you can label the 1.5k resistor? Im having trouble understanding which one this is.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.
