well, i guess that settles the matter
I just got on the wah bandwagon. Found a Dunlop Joe Bonamassa Wah on eBay from a dealer. They seem to be hard to find now as most online dealers don't have them in stock. I got mine from The Mad Ape.
I like the JB Wah a lot - very smoky and throaty sounding while still having plenty of clarity. The sweep is very wide which I like. I used to have the ZW model Dunlop wah and it just wasn't for me and kind of ruined me on wah's for a good while. I want to get an RMC at some point for another (probably the Walsh wah) but I'm really digging the Bonamassa wah.
buy a wha
LOL! What made you dig up this chestnut?
The Wah is an instrument unto itself. It takes practice to develop a sense of control and taste. I use one every now and then but I am really out of practice so it sounds like a$$! At one time, I had some pretty fun stuff happening on the Wah! I like how Buddy Guy uses it so I may start working on it again!
Yes it takes time to use one correctly. A little with quater bends get you some good electric guitars tones.
I miss using a wha. I have been so busy doing other stuff that I have not plug my expression pedal back into my midi to control stuff. I can also do volume swells. Like the wha, with practice those can be insanely expressive.
Deceptively simple (a ****ing tone pot for crying out loud)
But devilish to master its subtlities and expressiveness
My favorite pedal, I have always had one. I can do so much with a lap top but never copy a wah, wah.
I don't use a wah very often, but I do use a wah when covering Nazareth Hair Of The Dog as a substitute for the talk-box. I also use it for the Whole Lotta Love solo.
It's funny. I didn't get one for many years. I got one about a year ago and wonder how I ever got along without it. Love it.
Love me some wah!

I had a Thomas organ era wha that I liked, but could never make it work in a band situation. The bass side seemed to drop out into nothing. I recently sold it. I'm really a fuzz, phaser, echo guy at heart anyway.
Hah, that was neat seeing my old post! Little did I know, he had actually given it back to my dad who turned around and gave it to me. It definitely has it's own thing going on compared to my GCB-95, and I really like it. It does suck a LOT of the highs out of the signal though, so I am looking into wiring it for true bypass.
I recently just tried to purchase an older Thomas Organ CryBaby, but the seller would not ship it to my location. It's probably just as well, because since then I've read some of the older wahs sounded great, and some like shite becuase of variances in components, age, etc. Now, I am leaning more towards a Fulltone Clyde Standard since I've not had a wah in quite some time and I do rather miss having one.
Edit: one of the poll votes should be: "like wah, just don't own one, or haven't found a good one yet!"
I have the standard Fulltone Clyde Wha. It is very nice
Got myself the new VOX Union Jack wah - couldn't help myself.
I think this is a pretty brilliant wah tone

Where is the choice for 'Has two but hates them'? Yeah.... I have two and hate using them. So why do I have two? Good question.
For me trying to use a wah is like patting my head and rubbing my belly while riding a unicycle on a sheet of ice. It doesnt end well.
Took me a while to get comfy with one too.. and I ended up having to use it with my left foot instead of my right, and that fixed everything. And I'm right-handed.. so idk.
I used a dunlop standard wah wah pedal before and I only use in 1 position to add more bass or effects. I don't really use it much
