I want to get into wah-wah, but kinda overwhelmed by the choices. What do you guys recommend for a strat (3 single coils) ?

Really depends on your price range to start. Also, it will help if you can be more specific if you're looking for a wah for cleaner tones, or higher gain tones.

Around $100, I think the Crybaby Classic is a good wah. Double that price, and you're in the territory of Fulltone Clyde and the Teese family of Wahs.

I'd reccomend the Digitech EX7 Expression Factory. It has features 7 effects, two of which are wah's. The first wah is a Vox Clyde Deluxe and the second is a standard Crybaby. Here's what separates it (in my mind at least) from other wah's. You can tweak all the parameters- I mean everything. In addition to this, the pedal also functions as a wammy pedal, leslie simulator, univibe, space station, chorus pedal, and flanger. It even comes with 7 distortion options you can access via a heel switch if you need a boost for your signal. I got mine used for $125 TGP and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I especially like the Vox setting and wammy function. Lots of bang for the buck here.

RMC1 is real fat and vocal with a slight volume boost so as not to get lost in the mix...that would be my choice ;)

Jack, how much was the pedalworx, and did you try Teese wahs ?


Yes, I ahev had a few Teese wahs, they are kick ass too, but this Pedalworx kicked my ass.
Can't go wrong with a Teese, he makes awesome stuff as well.

I highly recommend the Wilson Wah. Just got one and it is the best Wah I have ever owned and I've owned a few. In addition, the manufacturer Kevin Wilson is very customer focused, great guy to deal with.

I'm gonna get blasted but I love the Bad Horsie by Morley. Switchless freedom, ah. Also the most intense Wah I've used.
I've always had a hard time switching off the Cry Baby's.

MSD Automagic Silver Machine. It's switchless which is awesome; I'd never go back to a Crybaby style wah. It also has three switchable frequency bands and four switchable filter bandwidths. You can also switch between Classic (wah only) and Modern (wah & dry mix) modes.
