    I wonder..... if you came across an older wah if it would give something new to the new sounds of today....... ? Or are all pedals created equal.....

    The older ones sound better :roll: . that said it's extremely subjective. Just ask CB what he likes! :wink: :lol: Everybody has theiiown ideas but with the prices of the originals being what they are, :?: that speaks for itself, I guess...... :idea:

    1- reissue Vox.
    2- Dunlop cry baby.

    Stay away from the Killer Wail..it sounds good but only lasts about a month. (Made in Brazil)

    vox's are probably the best and then one step down from that would be a Cry Baby Origanal, im not a big pedal fan but i know sumone who playes through them both at the same time like Hendrix, and it sounds great, you could always get an old maestro.....

    vox

    I tried almost all the crybaby flavors; I even took the jimi hendrix one home for a few hours, then returned it after hearing it make nothing unpleasant squonks thru my set-up. Afterward, I picked up a Vox 847 ($89) and haven't looked back. It's got a nice even sweep, pure tones, it's well-built, and it's easy on the eyes.

    Well, I use a crybaby 535Q or "Multi-wah". It's a very versitile wah and sounds fine. The boost button adds some more power to your settings too. It's in the $140 range though at guitar center though. For $100, I'd go with a Crybaby original.
