    I recently sold my Dunlop Crybaby from Hell, mainly due to the bypass. I'm looking for a true bypass wah with a warm, vocal tone, to be mainly used with gain but could also be used in clean scenarios aswell.

    I've been checking out the Budda Budwah and the Teese RMC. Can anybody give me any opinions on either of these, or any other recommendations?

    Thanks

    Btw, I'll be using it with the gear in my sig if that's of any assistance.

    Teeese Picture Wah - best wah I've played so far - although I've never played a Budda before.

    I've played both, you won't be unhappy with either of those.

    There's a true bypass Vox V847 in my emporium post. Vox's are so much smoother than Crybaby's.

    Get a Vox or pretty much any wah and send it to George Blekas at Pedalworx. The mods he does produce awesome vintage wah tones

    Buddah Wah good. :)

    I wish it had a light on it for whether it's active or not though.

    Fulltone Clyde deluxe, best wah i've played, but make sure it's a new one with the Trashcan inductor as the older ones are just "nice."

    whats the difference between the trashcan and the older halo inducters. I have a fulltone halo inductor in my modded v847 and I always thought it was great, but maybe it's time to try a trashcan.

    Teese Picture Wah. The best I've tried. I haven't tried the Buddah Wah, but I'm figuring they are both near the top of the heap. The Teese reminds me of early Michael Schenker.

    The Budda Wah is less growly... which is why I really prefer it ...
    as I would rather chordal note defination remain in tact ...

    If you're handy with a soldering iron you should consider the BYOC wah kit. I have one and recently built another for a friend. You'd be hard pressed to find its equal at any price.

    FWIW, I modded my V847 myself for TB, and it sounds great....... But I am not a huge Wah guy. I only use it for a few songs.......

    A $13 3pdt switch and about 30 minutes with a soldering iron fixed it.

    I bought a modded 847 from this guy and I can honestly say it's last wah pedal I will ever own. I naturally liked the VOX wah sound to begin (over the Budda which I considered) but his selection of mods is absolutely killer, and his customer service is through the roof.

    I got mine with the blue LED, TB, the bass selector switch, added power jack, and the variable control pots for adjustable sweep, high, etc

    The Teese wahs are fantastic and Geoff is a great guy with a ton of knowledge about wahs. You can hear it in his products.

    I currently have an Area 51 wah and it is right up there with the Teese picture wah tonally. That is another good choice.

    Great wah but sometimes it was stubborn when engaging/disengaging...

    I remember the older Clyde wahs as being a bit hi-fi, more of a tone-filter. The Trashcan MuMetal Inductor is growly, vocal, Mid strong, and dead quiet even with Hi-Gain , hi volume situations. wierd to switch a wah on and not hare that BBBBBBBBBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
