    I just watched some reviews of the Zakk Wylde wah and it consistently sounded good to my ears. Very consistent sweep from low to high and a true and incredibly strong "WOW" wow sound from bottom to top and back. Is anyone here using one and can you comment on it?

    It's pretty good. I liked my 535Q a bit more but yeah, the Wylde wah is pretty wild!

    I thought ZW wah sounded and played fine (and thought the same about the overdrive!) And I'm not a fan of ZW's type of music...

    Have you checked out the Kirk Hammett Wah? I was really impressed.

    The KH wah sounds good but I feel like the ZW has more grunt to it along with mellowed highs. I'm going by Youtube videos, mind you.

    ZW wah clip added in OP.

    My Favourite is still the Dunlop CAE Wah, 2 footswitchable inductor circuits and a built in switchable CAE Line-Boost. For me it is the ultimate in versatility.

    Just picked one up right from our own pedal emporium. Very excited to get it. I'd like to true-bypass mod it and stick an LED on the left side of it. I always leave my wah pedals on freak out thinking that my amp took a dump!

    Just got the pedal in and ran it for the first time last night. Mellowed highs, strong lows, great sweep. I don't see myself ever needing a different wah pedal. Crushes my original Crybaby and V847.

    John Frusciante actually used this some on The Empyrean and Stadium Arcadium for higher gain wah duties. It takes high gain very well (as it obviously should given who its made for).

    I haven't actually played one myself mind you.
