wah pedals

ive been searching for a new wah pedal and was wondering about what everyone uses, if they use one. i had my old trusty Bad Horsie, but after 3 years of hard abuse, its fizzled out and i dont want to pay to get it repaired, itd be easier and not that much more expensive to get a new wah pedal anyways. heres what ive been looking at...

Bad Horsie 2 - havent found one in stores yet, want to try it out
Buddha Bud-wah - great sound but expensive, and no switchless feature
Fulltone Full Clyde - see above except even more expensive
Crybaby 95q - nice price and switchless, but its a crybaby, and i just dont trust them.
Bad Horsie - had one for 3 years, kinda want to try something new, but i know this works well.

no reasons not to trust the cry baby's.
I have used two over the past 6 years (the 1st was stollen) and not one problem, for me, its a really great wah

ive just had a bad experience with them. 3 years ago before i got my bad horsie, i had a 535q that sounded good, but the construction was shotty and the jack never seemed to be totally solid and eventually the connection was shot. took it back, same thing happened with the new one. never had a single problem with my morley. tehy sound good tho.

Morley Mark Tremonti (agressive!!!)
Dimebag Darell signature CryBaby (nice one too)

I've played a lot of different Wah's the last 2 years, but still none of em will replace my Bad Horsie I....

Buy good, although them might be expensive. You'll thank yourself later.

What's the use of getting crappy gear and them getting rid of it a bit later anyway?

Btw, Crybabys suck tone like leeches. Hateful.

I tend to really freakin hate wah wah pedals. But sometimes they can be a very important addition to a guitar solo. Especially John Petrucci's stuff. I play a f*ckin regular crybaby.

I would rather not play a wah at all then play one that isnt true bypass. The way a vox or crybaby changes the sound when thier off is unmistakable and always bad. Plus I dont think they sound anywere in the same league as a Fulltone or a Teese. Teese is thought to be the best. All I know is that Fulltone and teese are great but a Teese standard is a bit cheaper then the Fulltone. I agree that spending a little more now is the better way to go. If your gonna do Budda I really think youd should, instead, get a Vox (which is very similiar sounding) and install a fulltone true bypass switch.

I was never huge on wah wah. I had a Morley Power Wah Fuzz from the 80's and it sort of sucked. But I got a Bad Horsie 2 for free from Morley and I really like it! Not because this is Jemsite or anything. Or because it was free(maybe a little). The wah is really pronounced. The switchless feature is pure gold. The Bad Horsie isn't true bypass but it's not a sound sucker when it's off like I've heard about Crybaby's.

I totally hate the Morley stuff, I think the optical nature loses warmth. But that's just me.

I really like Crybaby stuff, but I think my next one will be a higher quality one, like a Fulltone or Teese.
