    I have the BYOC wah that has a bunch of interior trimpots that I changed into regular pots/knobs in the wah housing so you can easily adjust 5 parameters. As I recall, I also changed the inductor. I can't really imagine, now, having a wah that I could not fine tune to my guitar and signal chain. It's a huge and useful luxury to be able to dial in the voice and response that's best for you as an individual. With a vocal wah, that just seems highly desirable to me, and was worth the work.

    Have 70’s Jen Super Mister CB, Ibanez Wau Fuzz(somebody put different diy guts in it) and Cry Baby Mini. If they’d all 3 stolen, I would buy Mini again. Larger sweep, 3 sound modes, pedalboard friendly, available:)

    I have to agree about the Vox 847. I have an 847-A modded for true bypass, maybe 10 years old. It feels the most comfortable and precise under foot of the many wahs I have tried. The tones, balance, sweep and "voice" just sound really expressive to my ear. For auto-wah, I like to use an old Boss T-Wah TW-1. Great for funk music using fast strumming mixing strummed chords and muted chords. Vox847-1.jpg Vox847-2.jpg BossTW-1.jpg

    I tried out the BadHorsie and I had nowhere to go after that. No clanking on/off, it's just there ready when you are. Stick your foot on it, it's engaged- take your foot off it, straight back to no wah. That's all it takes! I'd never find a reason to go to any other due to its seamless operation. :cool:

    Geoffrey Teese built me a Real McCoy Picture Wah years back using original NOS inductors he still had. It wasn't cheap, but it sounds awesome.
