    I would like to get a new wah pedal, and what do you guys consider the best!!!! I know the teese wahs are really nice, what is the best teese for blues and pop rock. Is the godlyke silver machine automagic wah up there with the teese's? Is there some other wahs out there to try? I also need the wah to be good for humbuckers and single coils!!!!
    Lets have some feedback!!!!!

    Hey Erksin,

    Gig-FX sent me a whole bunch of mp3's
    of their Megawah. PM me if you would
    like me to forward them to you.

    Cheers !!

    compare the Buddha to the Fulltone "clyde standard" please .. I think I want a new wah too. I have a crybaby classic, and I love its low end, .. but want same low end with a tad more range/quack ..

    If you don't want to spend too much, get the Budda... If you want a little more, it is hard to beat the Fulltone Clyde Std.

    The HBE Medicine Bawl is great at $150. But the Clyde trumps it, IMO.

    I just picked up a Silvermachine and am highly underwhelmed.
    I emailed Godlyke to see if I can send it in for a check up.
    If this is how it is supposed to be, it is pretty sad.

    Teese Wheels of Fire all the way!!!!

    I have finally ended my search after trying the Fulltone Clyde, Clyde Deluxe, Teese RMC-2, RMC-3, Proanalog Supa-Quack, a number of Crybaby's and Vox's.

    The WoF just does it for me.:JAM

    sounds good w/ the pedal set on whacked and the gain either @ 12'oclock or jacked.
    i also have a bixonic in front of it that i like to kick on when i wah.
    that's when it's really killin'!
    i'm not a fan of subtle wah, i don't see the point!

    What is the the wheels of fire wah, and how is it different than the picture and wizard wahs? I looked on the websight and found a WOF audio clip but couldn't find any info on it? I really liked the sound clip of the WOF wah?

    I have a FT Clyde and Teese Wizard, both are excellent wahs.
    The FT has a longer sweep and is more mellow and vocal, the Wizard is a tad nastier and has a slight boost.

    Hey Any(every)one,

    I have all of these great clips of the Megawah,
    but haven't seen any opinions from TGP members
    as to how it sounds for real. Has anyone played
    through it ?? Or the Chopper ??

    Thanks
