I have been using a very old, bottom level crybaby so I purchased a Zakk Wylde Signature dunlop wah. I did not really do my research before purchasing the item but I liked it's throaty tone when I was demoing it.

My question is: I have to return the power supply because it was not the right one but I am now considering exchanging the Zakk Wylde
for another Crybaby.

Any suggestions? I want a versatile wah that can give me the Slash tone and the same throaty tone I was getting from this Zakk Wylde pedal.

I really loved my Zakk Wylde Crybaby - The sound can be smooth or harsh, the sweep range is great and it handles high gain and drop tunings without a problem. The original fasel conductor gives it a classic Wah tone!

I only sold mine because I wanted a Wah with a boost option so I went for the Dimebag Darrel Wah...

Imho the Zakk Wah is the closest to a Slash sound, even closer than the Slash wah (which is just bad -.-)!!

535Q is very similar to Zakk one, it has the Q and volume knobs and range adjustment feature. It's a good wah that will do some cool sharp cuts.

Try it Daniel it sounds really cool, if you need a Wah that handles high gain and droptunings well AND has adjustment features then go for the DimeBag Darrel Wah!
