    Inspired by @calebaaron666 using a wah this week... I just took mine out and am getting ready to connect. Not a regular mainstay on my board but it’s fun when I do. Crybaby JH-1B Jimi Hendrix Sig.

    Original Vox Wah that we bought back in 1971 after our first band gig. Made in Italy.
    I've bought several models and brands over the years but keep going back to that one.

    I bought this Crybaby used, cleaned the dust and dog hair out of it and put in a Madbean Weener Wah (Clyde McCoy circuit). It has a 3-position tone cap selector switch and a Whipple Halo inductor. I need to actually use it more, one of my quarantine goals that is still in-progress.

    Oh, I had one too :cool:, made by JEN, Pescara, Italia... It has been stolen following a gig long ago... :(

    Other than that, the wah is one of my favourite effect...





    But it's me, OK ? :D

    Yeah I love wah wah pedals too. I also often use a Mad Professor Snow White Auto Wah a lot and it does some cool things.

    Well, I don’t really rock that much, but I did pick up a new 2020 Morley optical Volume Wah pedal this year. Kind of a midsize treadle, it has a glow in the dark logo on it.

    I run a Vox 847 that I modified for true bypass and put in an indicator LED when active.
    Embarrassing story prompted the install of the installation of the LED...

    Keeley modded Dunlop CryBaby, called the Keeley Mello Wah or something like that. I have it sitting on a G-Labs momentary switching pad so it’s out of the loop unless I step on it.

    I haven’t used a Wah in years, but I keep a basic Vox wah on the board. I have 4 Dunlops in the drawers(an old JH-1 is my fav) but they don’t have the shiny footpedal. Yes, I’m really that much of a poser.

    Currently I don’t have it on the board but it has it’s place. I like the optical circuit of Morley and the Maverick does was I need it too.. 8FE29E04-22CE-42CB-990D-212AEBA94363.jpeg

    A wah never leaves my board as I have always used them often.
    So using them consistently I've tested/owned many over the years
    Dunlop Crybabies are always good but 10 years ago I found better - Morley

    Many Morley wahs sound just as good as Crybabies but have 2 big advantages the other companies don't offer.

    a) Switchless step on - step off wah engagement - no click on or off is required.
    b) No tone suck of base amp tones when turned off.

    Plus the newish Morley mini wahs are significantly smaller and lighter than than the traditional wah brick.

    I've got this Morley Mini Maverick wah now (black with white writing) - it sounds great, is switchless, no tone suck, small and light footprint. Morley Bad Horsie 2 is also great - I have these 2 Morley wahs and won't return to the old bricks with switches :)

    I have a GCB95 and a 535Q. The 95 was my first but is currently residing in a drawer, the Q is a fixture on my board even though I don't use a ton of wah.

    I don't use wah anymore but when I did the Ibanez WD-7 Weeping Demon was the best one I used. Tones of customizable tonal options and you could even customize how the pedal activated and deactivated. The controls even push in to lock once you've dialed in your settings.
