I have the Dunlop Crybaby 535Q and it's really neat and covers a lot of wah-styles, so if you need versatility it's worth a try smile.gif

I have Crybaby 535Q as well, but I think it's a more modern, darker sounding wah unit. If you need vintage wah I would say something like Clyde Mccoy wah. There are two options available that should be checked out, on is mainstream Vox:


and the other one is Fulltone (recommended)

And in addition to those mentioned the RMC McCoy III. AFAIK it's the only wah that lets you alter the voicing.

Any Geoff Teese wah is however good. I replaced a new Crybaby with it - the McCoy has a much nicer tone, particularly at the top end - and much more like the original Crybaby.

Thanks for this recommendation Tony, I will check that wah myself, I need something more vintage than 535Q.

I have a crybaby and it sucks at lot of tone when it's switched off.

I plan on getting a Crybaby 535Q as it seems to be true bypass, hopefully that shouldn't eat tone when it's off.

Although I have a VOX Wah, but I have to say that wasn't the best decision to buy it.
I think Crybaby is better:

The Crybaby has a lot of versatility. That's why I recommended you that. I think that you are a "starter" on using Wah, so, I think that it could be the best choice. But, once you have all the experience, buying a new one will depend on your taste and the sound you're looking for. There are tons of nice ones out there

My local guitar shop recommended me one a week ago, but i cant find the name in my memories, it sounded like a good and cheaper aternative to the cry baby. It was around 50 Euro and as far as he told me it should have a better sound and a more reliable interior thant most of the twice or more costing ones.

Tomorrow i can take a look at it, as i am planning on buying some stuff smile.gif I hope i dont forget to ask for it again and then i will come back with a name smile.gif

I've had a few wahs now, and not yet found one I like. I've had a couple of vox v847s (various modded versions), cry babys, a few digital ones including the EX-7 digitech multi FX, which was the best of the ones I tried because it was quite versatile, but I can never get the use out of it because it's so difficult to turn it on/off when I want it.

I'm gonna get a bad horsie or ibanez WD-7 next, as they have the auto-on feature that I'm hoping will make it a bit more useable.

Anyone have one of those two? Just wondering what the bypass is like on them, is it a true bypass? It seems unlikely but thought I'd check.

I only know that 535Q has a true bypass. Even when it is without power the signal goes through (when switched off).

I asked and the brand is Onerr. Could be worth a try for around 50 Euro here.
