Teese Picture Wah......love the tone on it.......much better, for me, than the crybaby I used to use
I never used the Halo inductor, and I'm not sure how big the difference is between the stock and red Fasel but it's probably negligible in the mix like you said. The yellow Fasel, on the other hand, I found to be profoundly different than the red. The yellow is way thinner and has less bass response.
What I consider my "main" wah pedal currently has two mods. One is a switch to select between a yellow and red Fasel inductor. The other mod is a 100k pot that replaces the 33k resistor that sits in parallel with the inductor (the so-called "vocal" mod). I find that having this pot can sort of fine tune each inductor, and having both of these mods together gets me a huge variance in how the pedal sounds.
By far the best I've ever used was a Budda Bud-Wah v.1.
But when I realized, a few months ago, that I hadn't used it in about fifteen years, I sold it.
Just not a wah guy.
Agreed. I have about 5 Bad Horsie Wahs. They are great. I have the anniversary edition with the American Flag on it, that one sounds great.
Bone stock Vox V847. It makes all the noises you've heard on all of your favorite records, and costs less than 100 bucks. What else do you need?
Since Dunlop doesn’t recognize my brilliance and won’t make me my own signature wah pedal, I had to do it myself.
I had read about different modifications and types of wah pedals, and started tweaking my plain ol’ GCB-95 Crybaby. After trying a few different things, I finally ended up loosening the spline(?)/gear(?) and twisting the pot to make the sweep go a little deeper and make the low-end range more accessible.
I also wanted it to look a bit more unique, so I broke out an Exacto Knife and some Fiesta Red paint, and got a bit creative...by the time I was done, I had a Dunlop MWA-95 Crybaby wah, and it looks like this:
Note: That rubber is a lot thicker than I thought...
Count me in on the Mini CB. Works great, sounds great.
Just adding a pic of the CryBaby Mini to show how it fits on Pedaltrain Nano...
What did you do to get the shaft sound?
Vintage Dunlap GCB-95 Cry Baby with “The Works” modded by Modest Mike Mods... I also have a vintage GCB-100 for bass with the same mods. I prefer older units without the battery door, but that’s a personal preference.
adjust the gear and rack for maximum treble and place the Crybaby first in the signal chain
mine is the older Dunlop model with no battery door
I love the VOX wahs. I use a Union Jack now.
I did the Cry Baby models, Horsie and a few others but the Union Jack I feel the most (easier) "musical" with.
Jimi tone with an ancient VOX......
I have went through several pedals and I ended up with A Ernie ball.
I especially like the side lites , so you know it’s off...would never get another one without the lites.
Bought an RMC1 years ago. I think I used it for one song back when I gigged and its been sitting on the Island of Misfit Guitar Toys for a number of years. May have to break it out this weekend!
Ernie Ball 6185. More traveling in the pedal, wider range. For me useful in all positions
For some reason the standard Dunlop Crybaby is the only wah I've gotten along with. Wanted to like the VOX, but it just didn't mesh with me. Also owned a Clyde McCoy wah for a few weeks. I think my brain just got used to the original crybaby from using it for so long before trying others.
The 535Q is great.
The CFH wah is even better(and it’s CAMO!!!).
I prefer the Morley Bad Horsie 2.
Any of these are great. If you haven’t tried a Morley style wah then you should. Totally different than a Dunlop. They’re abundant and relatively inexpensive new or used.
Yes yes! This is the one to have. Koch’s demo made me a buyer. Love mine.
