    Which wah pedal to get the tone Warren does on Inside Outside Woman Blues #3? Anyone know which he's actually using?

    I believe he is using the CAE/Dunlop wah.

    Every time I have seen him he was using a bone stock Dunlop Standard Crybaby.He likes the way it loaded up his signal.

    Pretty sure it is the Standard Dunlop.He does use a ton of CAE gear.Not sure the CAE wah was around in 09..

    Yes, he has been using a regular stock Dunlop, but I "think" he has switched to the CAE.

    Warren's wah is in a loop of his Bradshaw switcher so it doesn't load his signal.

    You are correct that he doesn't like the wah pedal itself to be true bypass. However his wah pedal is in a bypass loop on the Bradshaw. Thats the 20 ft of cable to and from the wah that Farmer talks about in the video. Notice there is a button on the Bradshaw board labeled "WAH". Warren has to hit this before he can use the wah. I've seen him do it many times live. He doesn't turn the wah on and off like normal.

    Appreciate the replies. Wouldn't have guessed a standard Crybaby most of the time. I have seen a picture of one of his boards with the CAE wah as well.

    I have a Budda and a BBE wah. With the Budda I have trouble getting the bassy-ness of a tune like this one. I'm wondering if I can mod one of the caps to increases the bass. *EDIT* I was just playing a bit more with the Budda, and while I do find the BBE has more bass response, I am able to get a similar tone to this Mule tune with the Budda...it was more about wah technique than I previously thought.
