Post Wah Pedals ?
Hi Lefty's, i'm looking to purchase a Wah Pedal. I'm considering 3, the 1st is a BOSS PW-10 V-Wah, 2nd is a JIM DUNLOP CRYBABY 535Q and 3rd is a JIM DUNLOP CRYBABY 95Q.

Which Wah Pedal do you have ? How do you rate it ?

Which Wah Pedal would you buy ? And why ?

I look forward to your opinions and other recommendations.
Thanks, wayne

I use a Zakk Wylde signature CryBaby. I really like that full on sweep and this one delivers that, it's really excellent.

I tried a TON of wahs a few years ago trying to find something I liked, I really wanted something vocal akin to Kirk Hammett's sound. At one point I even dropped £250 on this crazy tweakable wah, you literally took the back plate off and messed with the electronics to change the sound - it was close, but no cigar. So finally about 6 months ago my local store had the ZW pedal on sale so I took a risk and it paid off - love it!

I've never tried any of the 3 you listed, but I assume the Dunlops must be reasonably similar to mine. YouTube could be a good bet to get an idea what they sound like.

Meh, i'm no use :mrgreen:

I'm currently looking for a new Wah myself. I haven't tried the Zakk pedal so can't comment, however the one that keeps getting recommended in the Big Bad Wah by Vox (Satriani's signature pedal). It also recently won a Wah review shootout on Anderton's music store website.
I also hear the Morley Bad Horsie 2 pedal is supposed to be really good.
As mentioned, I haven't tried these yet myself but a number of people have suggested them so maybe worth trying to see what you think.

Cheers

I have a Jim Dunlop CryBaby 535Q. A black, 20-year old one i got from a family member.
- afterall it is THE HENDRIX-Pedal. And, oh yes, it's awesome!

For Hendrix-style playing, blues, rock and everything in between, it does the trick fantastic!
I can really recommend the 535Q!

Good luck on the hunt! :-) Looking forward to see which one you're gonna buy.
