    is the budd-wah any good for high gain od/dist type thing?

    a la GNR, metallica, etc.?

    if not, can you suggest a good wah for this, only requirements, true by pass and less than $180

    Gives a great harmonic feedback as well.

    I use mine with all levels of gain and it does a great job. It also takes both humbuckers and single coils well too. It is a great all around wah.

    Yup, its a good solid pedal. Works for most any application.
    Had a side by side with the Teese picture wah, no clear winner, both sounded great. The Budwah was voiced a little more to my liking i guess.

    I'm in agreement with everyone else. I use mine a lot and have been really happy with the tone for clean and higher gain settings.

    Love mine. For clean or high gain. THe one knock on these is that the highs are too high for some. Me too.

    I opened it up and rolled back the pot just a few teeth. Very easy to dial in. Love it.

    I currently have a Teese Wizard that is great with high gain, not so great clean or tyring to cop a more classic wah sound, doesn't really like my Barge Concepts BB-Jr fuzz either. Is the Budda more versatile? I've read where it can handle high gain situations but how is it as a more clean and classic wah, can it cop a decent Jimi/White Room type sound?
