I'm going to be purchasing a new wah pedal soon, and I can't decide whether to get a dunlop crybaby original or a vox v847a. What I'd really like is something that sounds more like Jimi Hendrix. Which do you think would be better for that?
The Vox is better IMO, but it won't handle anything past light gain levels well. I would buy a used V847 (not v847a) for around $55 and then mod it to make it really nice.
Stock I think the Vox is the better choice - modded, the crybaby.
Can you buy pre modded cry babies? Ive been looking for a wah for some time now, with no luck. I will using one with a 6505.
I am sure they have some on ebay? Either that or you buy one and you send it to someone that can mod it. It really isn't that hard to do it yourself if you can solder and know a tiny bit about electronics.
You can, but only used ones. They arent hard to mod honestly. Theres a huge thread on it over in the GB&C forum.
OK thanks, i'll take a look.
