    I use the Dunlop 95q. Easy on, easy off.

    Dunlop CAE. It has just the right amount of features for me. Two inductors, variable boost. Not as much control as some, but having two flavors is all I need

    Thanks guys. The Teese wah pedals are super cool looking. I'm kind of gassing for one right now just on how they look. The CAE one should be pretty easy to track down locally. I'll try one out.

    Is the CAE "fuzz friendly"?

    Vox V845. I had a couple of those fancy Dunlop wahs with the q control, frequency control and boost and I could never get it dialed in right. With this Vox, I just plug it in, turn it on and it sounds great.

    I was so disappointed I couldn’t personally get a good sound dialed into the Dimebag wah. I love Dime and I love the skateboard grip tape on it. I just got option paralysis with it :(

    I bought that pedal because Slash is one of the biggest reasons I play. Was very disappointed in it.

    Still use my old purple Budda wah. Beautiful vocal quality and sounds great with fuzz or other dirt.

    Also use an Xotic. Great sounding wah tweakable if needed.

    I'll swap between the two, really for no reason other than I like them both.

    I actually used the Fulltone more. Someone gave the Dimebag Wah to me. Its not that bad of a Wah and I kinda like the built in boost. YMMV.

    I vacillate between several.

    For straight ahead rock I like the Dunlop EVH95 Eddie Van Halen Sig. Wah
    For metal it's the Dunlop DB-01 Dimebag Wah - very tweakable with high gain
    For blues, my favorite is the Dunlop SW-95 Slash Sig. Wah
    Just for different flavors, I also have a Vox V846, a Budda Bud-Wah v2 and a BBE Ben Wah(aka the Mason Marangella model).

    I have yet to own one. I'm considering either the Jim Dunlop 535Q, the MXR CAE (MC-404), or the Dunlop JP95 (Petrucci), though. If anyone here has experience with any of those and would like to offer any comments, I'd love to hear them. Thanks!

    Never been much of a wah user, but couldn't pass on a great deal for a RMC-1 (grey case) wah and now I'm converted. It sounds so sweet and takes fuzz really well.

    I have two... Morley wah Volume (since it does two things) and Morley Wah Lock (you can lock the wah, but also reduce the range for the 'Whoa' effect... thick and throaty). I only do home/studio stuff and so I select the one I want at the time. The First one has more of a vintage wah sound where the second is more aggressive.

    Off topic, and I apologize, but I've owned a George Lynch Dragon 2 Wah by Morley and I never figured out how to use it properly.
    Are there any basic tutorials for complete morons, cause I was under the impression they'd be spring loaded.
    Then when I started using it, I found it challenging to play and wah at the same time. Like I was getting distracted.

    Should I have started off with something different?, do you guys spring load wahs at all or was that just a daft idea?, do u tend to move the pedal heaps across its full range of movement, or is it very subtle? I always wanted to use a wah while doing a GnR slash solo but the competency seems to elude me.

    I hope I'm not the only one.
