Hmm. I have exactly the same choice to make ...

I ruled out the bad horsie 1 because version 2 has a lot more versatility.

The weepeing demon seems to be the most versatile of the lot, but eats batteries like there is no tomorrow.

I'l let others comment further ...

Had badhorsie 1,now I'm on badhorsie 2...both work fine,imo

Definetly Bad Horsie 2 if you can go for it, sounds awesome, if your a little short on money though, the dunlop Original Crybaby is a bit cheaper, and that sounds metal as hell! smile.gif

Dunlop Dimebag Wah biggrin.gif

If it's not a stupid question why those two? If you have the cash then there are some really good wahs from, amongst others, Geoff Teese. Big difference (and I have a cry baby as well so have compared them on my set up) is the Teese wahs don't suck out your tone.

Cheers,
Tony

I agree with The Uncreator.
I played for years and years with crybaby.
Absolutely no problems.
Muris Varajic
Thanks for the tip Tony smile.gif

Must try Teese,I've heard lot of good things about it...

Chipping in with the same answer, the cheapest Dunlop Crybaby sounds great and last a battery forever.

My band mate has one and it's just great, I have the Weeping Demon but I'd rahter have the crybaby for less bells and whistless.
My main reason for that is that the crybaby last a battery 10 times longer than the Demon. Makes the Demon useless on stage for me but for rehearsing I run it plugged into the wall anyway.

MickeM - and eceryone - maybe also consider getting a multi-jack mains power supply? Mine is much more basic - maplin ac/dc 9v converter wired to a multijack lead - got it off ebay for about 9 euros new but can't remember the details.

This sort of thing pays for itself quickly just on saving the cost of batteries - although it is yet another lead to tangle up rolleyes.gif .

Great tip! I've had my eyes on the Fueltank but I rather have some hum than cough up $200. Then I thought I maybe get the noice surpressor from Boss (which can run other pedals) but this adapter sure looks handy and the price is right.

Regarding batteries I bought a full load of rechargable ones for my pedals some time ago biggrin.gif
Saoirse O'Shea
Pretty certain that there is a much cheaper version of that T-Rex fuel tank made by, I think, Morley MickeM (about 100usd if I recall correctly. Still more than a diy job from radioshack/maplins or similar.

Batteries in Spain are expensive - and just getting them can be a real pain. (Thought about rechargables for a while but sooner or later even they go flat for ever.) Such a pain that I'm thinking about removing the EMGs from my custom and replacing with passive pickups blink.gif .

One child I know in my village asked only for batteries for his 9th birthday ohmy.gif .

Off course Tony,multi-jack mains power supply is really needed for case like this.
I have one by myself and it has 2 different power sections,one for Digitech Whammy 2 and another one for rest of the pedals...

Must agree with that,active pickups suck the batteries out damn fast... sad.gif
Cool way is to have passive stuff and tool like Varitone OD .
Saoirse O'Shea
Thanks for the heads up Muris - the varitone od looks v good biggrin.gif . Think I'll have to investigate it.
