If you don't like "classic" wah but might want to add one . . .

What would you recommend?

 

I usually shied away from the classic crybaby because I figured, if I ever got a wah it would likely be for more subtle, ambient purposes. Not sure why but I always thought the Morley stuff might be worth checking or something along those lines.

 

I remember listening to something Adam Jones did with a wah pedal that I thought was really neat but was not anything similar to the 70's-style pron wah.

 

Any suggestions are appreciated.

that new EHX wah pedal sounds incredible too and only 90 bucks!

 

 

I have just sold my Crying Tone, but not because it was bad. I needed cash to pay towards a custom guitar.

 

The Crying Tone is a really cool wah pedal, and the calibration button comes in handy. Sounded great, especially just in front of my '80's CS-2

70's Vox King Wah with the TDK inductor. Nice & subtle. Not too quacky / " Ron Jeremy porno wah" sounding, but not too dark. Still easy to find. Ive seen them go from $75 -$125, depending on the condition. Easislly tweakable just by adjusting the gear on the pot.

Saw NOFX recently, got to be backstage while they played. They have a couple reggae songs for which I always though their rhytm guitarist use a subtle envelop filter for the rhythmic upstrokes. Turns out itms some Morely wah and he just rides it the whole time.

 

Very nice, subtle sounding wah.

 

If I wanted a more subtle wah, I'd definitely go Morely. I like their enclosures more too.

Go for a Wilson wah. Great range of wahs, and they work well with fuzz and hi gain/ can set the frequency levels, etc.

 

 

I've had a Wilson 12-position Rippa Wah for over 3 years. Great wah, and has a lot of range to find settings that you like.
