Sorry,somebody out of us two is on drugs - so i'm asking,is it you or is it me?
I quit doing that 6-7 years ago so I'm waiting for your experience.
"Crybaby sounds like...nothing at gain."
Seems to me like you have some personal bias towards Crybabies.
I can just strongly disagree with you and say they sound GREAT with gain,from my experience.
I can understand that it doesn't work out for you,specifically,but saying things like that and make it sound like it's some general word of law is really and completley uneccesary.
Crybaby may be too-boring and too-unextravagant as far as the wah goes these days,considering all the technological developement that occured meanwhile,but they are true classics that defined the rock history and most memorable guitar solos of all times.
I can see that people go for alternatives when there are fulltones,vox,buddas and stuff like that,but still,Crybaby is and will always be the class of its own!Nobody can't beat that.
I own a Crybaby classic (red fasel) and I chose it among a lot of more expensive brands because it sounded the best and most natural to my ears and money was not an issue to me.I could have 10 wahs at the time If i wanted.It's all just a matter of personal preference.But the difference is that I'll never put my word as it is universal cosmic law,it will always sound like it is supposed to sound - like an opinion.Nothing less,nothing more.
