    Dunlop Crybaby? I'm certainly no expert in wah, but I know it has been the pretty standard choice for many players throughout the decades...

    Try an old Dod FX-17. Theyre pretty cool + you get volume and wah in a wah pedal thats smaller than any other wah. Wah?

    Used budda, crybaby classic, or give the zakk wylde wah a listen. I wrote it off because of the name for a long time until I heard a review of it. Sounds so awesome.

    BBE Wah - really nice Vox style sound and true bypass. Very close to $100 at Amazon right now.

    I had a Cry Baby for a long time - it's a really nice wah for that price range.

    About a year ago I sold it and got an Ibanez Weeping Demon (what a stupid name, and it's an ugly little sucker too) - but I like it because it's pretty versatile, and you can set to an auto-engage, so it automaticaly disengages when you take your foot off it, then as soon as you start pressing down it comes on and starts working) - this is a cool feature 'cause I do a lot of one-man-band looping and such, so it's way easy.

    It doesn't sound as warm or analog-ish, but you can reign in the sharp screechy highs that the dunlop gives you, which I like - so it's a trade-off for sure.

    So yeah, either the cry baby or the Ibanez WD7.

    +1 for the Ibanez WD7.
    These are the exact reasons I went for it. I paid £80 but I don't know the current price and conversions etc.

    Yeah got mine for $70 used on the BAY of great EVILNESS - it had a ton of goopy crap on the bottom from what looked like something way more intense than velcro...

    I took off the bottom plate, scrubbed it in the sink for literally an hour, dried, adjusted internal trim pot to taste, and haven't looked back.

    A few times I've missed the old Dunlop sound, but I wouldn't go back. PEACE
