  • Your Wah of choice

    Every board needs a wah, right? What's your favorite?

    I have always been a Morley user. The switchless Classic Wah is my favorite. Original Crybaby is my second choice. I still need to get my hands on the Jerry Cantrell wah.

    I have a recent Dunlop 535Q with the red Fasel inductor and true bypass. I have a Behringer Hellbabe, mostly out of curiosity. Thinking about picking up the current Bad Horsie, the big one, not the 20/20.
    I have moderate bilateral hearing loss in the upper midrange and lower treble. I tend to think sounds are quieter, darker, and bassier than they probably really are.

        I have been a Morley guy for decades. Lately, I have been using the Q-wah algorithm in the Eventide H9 with the expression pedal. There are so many different flavors to play with.

          I've been using a Dunlop 535-Q for the last 12 years or so. Never let me down, always sounds great and it is flexible enough to easily tweak for different guitars or amps.

          For leads, a lot of times I kick it on and leave it parked in one position. Hard to do that with spring loaded, "switchless" wah pedals.

            Fulltone Clyde, since 1995. Mine was made back when Michael was getting inductors out of old VOX wahs and some surplus U.K. military parts. The rocker hinge is tall, so the pedal has more sweep than normal Crybabys. It's hand-signed and has a lifetime warranty, for as long as Michael is alive.

              I always wanted to try a Snarling Dog.

                Respectful disagreement here at chez Pigbacon.

                  im 100% sure people try and use a wah to make boring solos sound more interesting a whole hell of a lot. i just played a festival over the weekend and the only time anyone stepped on a wah, other than the play a funk rhythm, was to try and spice up a lame ass solo. im not saying they cant be used to good effect, im suggesting that most people who step on one, should not.

                    I just ordered a BYOC drop in wah kit, so I am hoping that is the one. I have an old early 80s wah that sounds great, but is noisy as hell- so I will rebuild it. The BYOC has internal trimpots, so you have options.

                      Fulltone Wahfull with a Moog pedal controller.

                      Can do 3 different types of wah and also does the cocked wah thing.

                      Really high (1 MOhm) input so no tone suck.

                          Sure as heck can't make it sound like Pete does, at least not yet, but this was my choice a couple months back.
