Re: Bad horsie or Jimdunlop crybaby

I'm all for the Cry Baby. To me the bad horsie looks and sounded cheap.

Regards

André

Cool Re: Bad horsie or Jimdunlop crybaby

Wow. I find myself disagreeing with Andre????!!!! A first!

Crybabys were the first and I respect them, but they have a noisy pot that gets worse with age and the Morley uses a silent light switch which never goes bad. With any distortion in the signal chain the crybaby is so dirty/noisy I can't deal with it.

I believe the crybaby has a wider range of "wah", but I've been a Morley guy long before the BH came out and my BH1 sounds better to me than the BH2-
which expanded the "wah" spectrum to better compete with the Dunlop.


It boils down to a matter of personal taste my friend- go out and buy the one that captures the sound in your head.

Re: Bad horsie or Jimdunlop crybaby

I've got the Bad Horsie 1 - a very good wah. To me the cry baby sounds a bit too fuzzy in comparison. Again....as Jemaholic says, it just boils down to personal taste.

Re: Bad horsie or Jimdunlop crybaby

CryBaby's cool for clean funk/blues sounds, or as a filter in a halfway position. I wasn't too happy with it when using distortion. Never tried the Morley though...

Couldn't agree more, especially when you are running any sort of delay and you hear that annoying click over and over.

Re: Bad horsie or Jimdunlop crybaby

I use a Tech 21 Killer Wail. The Dunlop Dimebag wahs are supposed to be really nice, I think Satch is using one. The problem with the "regular" or "original" Crybabies is that they are not true bypass or buffered, so they suck your tone when they are off. With a true bypass switch they rock.

Re: Bad horsie or Jimdunlop crybaby

I would not recommend a crybaby to anyone. If you want that classic wah sound, get a Vox. Much better than a crybaby.

Bad Horsies are a nice modern sounding wah.

Re: Bad horsie or Jimdunlop crybaby

It's come down to Morley VAI2 and a Dunlop Crybaby 535Q (Satch uses the Crybaby, Vai uses the Morley [obviously]), for me. ;_;
