Cry Baby Classic Fasel GCB95F.
I'm kinda digging the Buddy Guy Crybaby. Not sure it's not just because of the polka dots.
OP: A wah that doesn't rob your TONE? The Teese Wizard!!! The high end isn't much more than your actual guitar tone. And the mids are nice and full. To me every other wah I've tryed alters the actual tone of my Les Paul too much.
Rumor has it that Brad Whitford from Aerosmith says it's the best wah he has ever played, FWIW. It does not get mentioned a lot...
No it doesn't. I like that it has some flexibility but not over the top like my Dimebag. It has a very vintage tone and feel on either setting. Also TBP. I think that might be my next Wah. The Joe B looks nice too.
clyde deloox. make sure its the newer one with the buffer controls on the left side.
I ordered mine today, I really like these and it's been a while since I've even had a wah wah pedal.
I can vouch for this, as I've done the exact same thing to mine, except for the Q control. Stock, it sounded pretty good with a fairly good sweep range. But it did sound somewhat...shallow, to me. So, I did the exact changes, as well as adding a 3PDT switch, as mine is already true-bypassed, a bright blue LED, and it already has a red Fasel. I A/B'd it with my buddy's VOX 848. They are two different wahs with flavors alltheir own, but mine, now, rates up there with the more expensive ones.
But I may go back and install the 100k pot for Q.
Two words, Clyde McCoy.
Halo inductors are my favorite. Think Clapton/Hendix Wah.
This is a good list of some of the best wahs available today:
Best Wah Pedal
What are you selling?
I've had crybabys since late 70s and then vox and then morley etc etc
Believe it or not, the one I am using now is the EHX Crying Tone.
Really good sound/sweep and the complete lack of a downside - every other wah I have owned had some major downside - switched ones do not always shut completely off/on - the morleys have a noisey aspect, they do not get along with my chorus or phase - Only downside to this is the way you have to jerry rig it to a pedal board. Oh, the on/off light is under your foot, so you can't see it. But that doesn't matter as it has a firm on/off threshold.
Joe Bonamassa Crybaby. Really throaty and reminds me of the Italian Crybaby's but with a bit more range/sweep.
847a modded by Keeley
- true bypass
- 3 different voices (3 way switch)
- bass control
Professional caliber at $269
I've been gigging with one of these for the last three years and love it, love it, love it. Wouldn't trade it for the world.
Vintage... VOX Clyde McCoy.
New... Teese RMC3 or Picture.
I've got a Thomas Organ Wah Geoff modded for me in '96 CRAZY wide sweep....
The best wah I played on was a Dime Custom Crybaby DB-02. it doesnt have all the bells and whistles the crybaby from hell has. This one is hardwired to dime's specs. It has true bypass, and a fasel inductor. I gave mine to my brother, wish I still had it.
Maybe some interesting info scattered throughout the below thread:
I have the following wahs:
Vox Clyde McCoy reissue
Dunlop Joe Bonamassa
There are many great and unique wahs on the market nowadays good luck!
The list of Wah pedals are endless. It depends on what sound you're after and price range. If you're handy with a soldering iron get a Vox V847 and mod it for true bypass. Here's a few I've used that doesn't suck tone:
Dimebag Crybaby from Hell
Budda Bud Wah
Modtone Vintage Wah
ive owned a few wah pedals in my day. my hands down favourite is the 535Q.
I love the wah. Great effect and you can really do so much with it. One effect I have always had.
The BG-1 (Buddy Guy) Wah is one of the best I've had. Some of the other posters are right, it doesn't get mentioned often but it should. It is the best (IMO) crybaby wah.
