Just wondering what people would recommend for a decent wah pedal. I play Tool/Incubus/perfect circle/Helmet kinda stuff. I have a Dunlop Jimi Hendrix wah but its pretty clashy and extreme, just wondered what else is out there? Something a bit more subtle I guess is what I’m looking for…

Also, what would be the best way to supply power to 3 effect pedals? I’m thinking one of those daisy chain things or perhaps just buy the individual power supplies and chuck them all into a powerboard? Kinda just answered my own question lol… but yeah, any more ideas?
Cheers

i would recommend a Dunclop Cry Baby (the standard model), as compared to the hendrix model it can be a bit more subtle, but it might not make sense to you buying another dunlop wah, in which case the fulltone clyde are a great versatile wah (a bit hard to find, but they're worth it).

and dunlop power brick can supply 10 pedals.

damn, i sound like a dunlop spokesman.

good luck.

I forgot. Go with a Visual Sound 1 Spot and a 1 spot DC-5 daisy chain. Best option apart from the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power or T-Rex Fuel Tnak, but theya re both extremely overpriced and the 1 spot is only slightly less brilliant.

if u got the money go for the fulltone clyde deluxe got one and never regretted it. When my my mate whos a quality player and owns a v847 tried it. He was literally speechless. If not the v847 is very good for the money

the vox v847 can't handle high gain well, so the fulltone would be your best choice
stay away from dunlop altogether

RMC is a top notch brand. He has a wah for everyone's taste, too.

For power supplies, go for the 1 spot.

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

my default recommendation is usually a VOX V847....
but the 535Q seems to be good for your type of music

Really? I would've suggested the Wizard Wah, probably.

Yeah, I guess your right. I would say it is a matter of personal opinion. I love my RMC Wheels of Fire though.

^Oh, i don't deny that it's a great pedal. I'm under the impression that my Picture Wah is perfect, lol. I just thought the wizard wah was more geared towards the modern tones.

would the Dimebag, Zakk Wylde, or Slash Wah work? I've never used any of them, but I would think they would be able to handle high gain by looking at who they were made for.

^Those are pretty mediocre pedals, in my opinion.

^ Especially compared to an RMC Wah. I actually modded my crybaby into a volume pedal. Lol.

· Dunlop 535Q
· Dunlop Cry Baby
· Dunlop GCB-95
· fulltone Clyde
· RMC Picture Wah
· RMC wheels of fire
· vox v847

Any last thoughts? I’m thinking fulltone…

Obviously.

You really need to try some of those/listen to some soundclips or Youtube demos to get an indication of which one you want.

Mike from Incubus uses the Crybaby from Hell wah, and i think Adam Jones uses the 535Q. The CFH and the 535Q are basically identical except for the CFH has an extra knob to tweak it a bit more. I say definately try the 535Q and if you can afford it maybe go for the CFH.

I like my Weeping Demon, versatile as anything, got the pedal on/off or auto options, fully adjustable, and built like a brick.

Well, at this point, i would rule out the Cry Baby and the GCB-95 (am i mistaken, or are those not the same thing?)

The rest are worth considering, but it depends on what you are looking for. If you're looking for vintage, then the Vox, Picture Wah, Fulltone Clyde, and probably Wheels of Fire would be right up your alley. The Vox is easily modded, but the others are more high quality right out of the box. If you're looking for a more modern wah, check out the RMC Wizard Wah or something like a weeping demon (having said that, i've never tried it, it just gets used a lot).
