Ive played wahs that are great in the middle registers but grating at the top, what is a wah that isnt ice picky on the ear at the top end of its range and is nice and smooth ?

Yep,
That's what I use and I love it. It is the most growling, angry wah that I have ever owned without being harsh on top at all.

Chicago Iron is a cool company

You can check out the Teese Wizard Wah, Great wah with out piercing highs, Or my favorite the Fulltone Clyde Deluxe set in the wacked mode will keep it set as a Darker wah tone but I play it in the Jimi setting which is more of that Vox clyde tone but not super bright!.

The Dunlop Crybaby Classic is also very good if your on a budget!

I've only ever owned a Crybaby that I had since the late 80s or so, but I recently replaced it with the Fulltone Clyde Deluxe (another pricey one unfortunately). There's no way I'd ever go back to the Crybaby now...the Fulltone sounds incredible. It's hard for me to imagine one sounding better. But I've not tried enough to know for sure.

no budgetary requirements dude,just looking for honey sweet wah tone, it sucks when you are playing your heart out and you cant "really hear" what you playing because of biting wah tone.

Parapedal

The Parachute is the single greatest pedal I have ever owned, also its the most expensive of the lot

Its worth it, but its cost is only just outdone by its amazing tone

Interesting... that's one thing I didn't like about it. To me, the standard Dunlop casing is the perfect pedal action - just the right sweep and angle at both ends for precise control.

I don't like any of the extended-sweep pedals, whether it's at the heel or toe end - although I find too much range at the toe end worse... Morleys are unusable, for me.

What about the Chicago Iron Para-Baby? (Parachute innards in a Dunlop casing) Saw it on their site, are there drawbacks to this config?

Teese RMC-3 ... you can dial in exactly what you're looking for ... and if your rig changes in any way, you can easily make any changes you might like. Worth checking out.

"To introduce this pedal to you, the Chicago Iron Parachute wah pedal is now available for only $380."

:eek: wtf!?!? What's it going to cost after the Special Offer? A grand?

my vote for the Picture Wah ...I had the very same problem with the top of the throw on previous pedals ...I `d grit my teeth when riding the treble too high .....mess up the whole vibe . The thing I love about the Picture Wah is that you don`t have to dial in anything ...It`s perfect out of the box ....sweet and musical ..+++++++

Apparently, it really depends on the rest of your rig. I tried two different Teese Picture Wahs and found the highs much too piercing. On the other hand, I know lots of others who, like you, find it to be perfect for their setup. The RMC-3LE was perfect for me since I could easily set it up to work with both of my amps and various guitars. I guess that's why Geoffrey offers the different models ... different rigs and different ears.
