Use a battery. Less wire, less noise.
On my board.
Off. I have more than one and this way I can be a bit versatile.
But then I'd have to be sure the battery was good. Fortunately, the regulated power supply I use is very quiet. But, otherwise, good suggestion.
Yeah, I'm in this boat. Not really enough room on board for how infrequent I currently use it. Volume pedal is always on the board. The wah is easy enough to plug into at the beginning.
An alternative would be to use an autowah, like a boss AW-3. Seems a bit the compromise though....
Off the board because it feels more comfortable to me when it's rotated at about a 10-15 degree angle and off to the right side from the main pedal board which I keep pretty much straight in front of me under a boom mic. That said, I've mostly switched to an envelope filter.
Saves on real estate and easier to pack up
It was off my old board, because it's just too damn big to eat up valuable pedal board real estate. Most of the time I wouldn't even bother to bring it along as I rarely use wah, I don't worship on the altar of Kirk Hammett so I rarely use it. I installed a small box underneath my pedal board as an effects send/return loop, together with a power out if I wanted to hook up a wah.
My wah was on my board when there was room but came off when I got BAPS(bought another pedal syndrome).
I didn't like the idea either but got used to it. No biggie.
I tried having a Wawa and a volume pedal on my board first off they take a lot of room. Second they function better for me if they're on the floor
Unrelated question how do you like the Flint?
Mini crybaby is ON the board for me.
I have a relatively small board (Pedaltrain Classic Jr) so I keep the wah/vol/exp pedals off.
Cry Baby Mini off to the side. I don't like the ergonomics of a wah pedal on a pedalboard.
I got a mini wah (for on the board) and several other mini pedals, for the purpose of having a relatively smaller, compact board. What I'm finding out fast tho, is that you still have to have enough space between the pedals for your shoe soles, especially boots in the winter, to not be hitting their neighbors' buttons/knobs; which sorta renders that whole aspect of mini pedals moot. But, overall the board certainly weighs less ...
Mini wah and whammy on board.
I do both. I have a Gator "The Bone", which has room for a wah. My other pedal boards are smaller and have no room for one. As long as I have easy access to the pedals, it's not a big deal for me.
Sold it; Morely Bad Horse 2. Fine pedal, just not a sound for me, except for going wacka wacka wacka once a month.
+1 for the mini wah - fits nicely on the board (the full-size one adds too much weight).
It's on cause I dont like carrying it in guitar bag when rehearsal
