I'm looking to get a new wah pedal, but there are so many differant models that I don't know where to start. The only two I've played are the basic Vox and Crybaby so I was hoping to get some recommendations on other brands and models. I've heard good things about the Ibanez Weeping Demon, Vox Clyde Mccoy, and the Morley Bad Horsie. Anyone have any opinions on these or other models that I haven't thought of?

I use a basic Dunlop for wah and tone shaping. I am on my second one. My first lasted like 15 years. I play Beatles to Iron Maiden and it does justice throughout. Built like a friggin' tank!

The only one I have ever used is a Bad Horsie.....it seems to work well and does not have a switch....it just automatically turns off/on when you step on it. Sounds like you need to make a trip to your local GC...then E-bay.

VHfan is right, I need to take a trip to GC today and check out as many different ones as i can. So the morley doesn't have a switch? That sounds interesting. I was told that Budda makes a nice wah pedal, but I imagine it's probably pretty expensive.

I went to GC and tried out a few pedals. They didn't have the Ibanez so I'm waiting untill next week when they get some in. The bad horsie sounded really good, I liked not having to stomp on it to turn it on/off. I also tried a crybaby, i can't remember the model number, 535Q or something like that, it was versitile and sounded pretty good, so I hopefully after I try the Ibanez i'll be able to make up my mind.
The guitar I was playing through was an Ibanez Jem7v, I always thought it was a beautiful guitar, but I had never played one. It sounded kind of overrated cause I would hear people say, "don't play one unless you plan to buy it because your guitar wont compare to it", I thought that sounded pretty ridiculous, but I have to admit that it was probably the best feeling/sounding guitar I've ever played. It just fit me perfectly so I bought the guitar and left without a wah pedal :icon_thum

I'd have to say the Bad Horsie II is one of the most versatile wah pedals. The contour feature gives you complete control over your wah tone. It's better than a CryBaby, just my opinion tho.

Yeah, you might be right. I played the regular bad horsie so it didn't have the controls, i'll have to spend more time with it next week

I have the Bad Horsie 2, which is the Bad Horsie plus the contour option. Honestly, I never use the contour switch. I'd just save a little money and go for the original if I were you. It's still my favorite wah pedal of the bunch though.
