    I have two favorites. One is definitely the ZVex Wah Probe. It is also my favorite of the Probe series. It's neat, because you can tweak it more than most basic wahs.

    My other favorite is the Maestro Boomerang Wah. It is great for getting scratchy filtered 70s Krautrock sounds. If you want the sound of Neu, this is it! The only problems: It is highly susceptible to RF interference. All you will hear is local radio. It is likely nowhere near true bypass or noiseless, but, who cares. It's awesome.

    Morley Steve Vai Wah. I like the optical feature of the pedal. I went to this because I would always forget to turn off the wah or I would have a hard time hitting the toe button to turn it off. Morely works everytime.

    Still love my Budda but I also have one of those dinky Sonicake wah/vol pedals that also sounds great. So I have one full size and one micro for when I need one that fits in my shirt pocket...literally.

    I really like the CAE Wah. It's got that sound.

    have a early 70's crybaby... carbon comp resistors and all... mojo inside... sounds pretty good. I've built a few and tried a few others but keep finding this one back in the mix. works for me anyway.

    I have five working wahs and one broken wah I have not yet fixed or thrown away. I don't use them that often, so it's obvious I have a serious problem.

    Wilson vintage signature
    Fulltone original Clyde

    Both are great.

    A very, very good sleeper wah? The first original run of 18v Dunlap 535Q. High headroom, very versatile, limited-to-no tone suck (for a Dunlap).

    -Vox hardwired wah (a minus is the only battery thing) has nice range
    - Buddy Guy cry baby. On the BG mode it seems to be a regular crybaby, but the Deep mode has a nice deep vocal.

    Just a regular old Vox Wah. Love the treble on it and it cuts through nice.

    Xotic wah, and a Joe Bonamassa Crybaby. I must admit, I’m curious about the Dunlop CAE wah but I prefer ones with a buffer.

    I’ve been through lots of wahs and love my Wilson Colorful Clone.

    I like my crybaby classic, but ultimately I prefer my moogerfooger low pass filter with an expression pedal for wah type sounds.
