    I need a good reliable non-boutique wah pedal to replace a Bad Horsie wah and an original crybaby (both went belly up). I'm not a heavy wah user but I need something reliable without breaking the bank. I'd rather save the pennies for a Klon. I'm looking at the $100-$150 range for a good solid reliable pedal. Any suggestions??

    dunlop 535q or if you like it simple, the dunlop classic with fasel....or just a vox....they all sound good for the dough you are looking to spend.

    Why don't you get one of these Pedalworx-modded used wahs for $155 bones??? It's souped up with all the best mods to make it sound like the best classic wahs.

    Why not try to fix it yourself? . . . . check out the mod sites for the Dunlop and change some parts around, see if you can get it working?

    I am in love with my Vox V847. Go for one with a true bypass mod, sit back, and enjoy

    Snarling Dogs. Usually under $100, at least used. Better voiced than most any other I've heard.

    This is what I did. Loved it, the pedal's dying now though, hopefully going to try a Budda Wah this weekend while I'm in NYC. Though a Vox V848 sounds like a good idea as well.
