I figured someone on the forum knows something about it.

Tried extremely hard to get hold of one ... couldn't find one, no shop was about to stock one.. so I gave up.

There aren't even any decent video's of it on utoob.

I'm looking for a Wah pedal and was all set to get a Dunlop 95Q or the Dimebag wah...possibly even test drive the new Jerry Cantrell wah. After watching this video I might have to just take a chance and order the Dragon 2 wah....he's a good salesman. lol

Well if you get it let us know. I'm dying to get some input on this piece of gear.

I believe it is a notch setting for the wah. So you can get a fixed wah sound setting. Could be really cool. :)

I'd been using the same original Crybaby for the last 20 years. I picked up a 95Q on your suggestion and this thing absolutely rocks! The auto on/off works really well. I usually shy away from the wah pedal because I always have problems turning the thing on and off. It's really frustrating. This is really going to open things up for me! I've tried quite a few wah pedals over the years, but never found anything I liked more then my Classic wah. But I really love this! Thanks for the tip.

I'll second this... the MXR/CAE is my current wah of choice for tone + flexibility... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Abd7Bk1ech0

That said, I've gone through a small mountain of wahs over the years... other favorites are the Ibanez WD-7 (great flexibility, always felt a little cheap but never actually broke on me) and a combination of Bad Horsie + Crybaby 95Q (switchless city!).

Never use them.

Just picked up the Dunlop 105Q bass wah and I'm loving the tones! Just have my combo setup here to play with, not my normal setup, but I still love it. Thanks for the secret weapon Ray! :D

Wah Bla Wah!!!

Post by Nighon Maiden » Sun Mar 20, 2011 3:38 pm

I have the Dunlop 535Q, it is by far the best tonal wah I've owned, being in a maiden tribute I need that super rounded tubular tone with a metallic edge that really swoops the signal & spreads it across the stage like a mellow beast with a sting in its tail!
I had a couple of the Vai Horsies before this one, but they just don't have the tone for my ears, but were great for hitting harmonics & sending them stratospherically laser-like!
:shock:
If ain't loud enough this time...
it was too damn loud the last time!

Signature models and best ever

Post by nsafchuk » Wed Jun 08, 2011 9:51 am

Hey all! I usually do not like the whole signature model thing but my Dunlop Kirk Hammet wah is incredible. I also have a crybaby classic as a backup. The best I've ever worked with was when a guitarist brought a Fulltone Clyde Deluxe Wah into my studio. It was an older white model. Below is a link to the end product. The wah is full, clean, expressive, and and has a ton of character. It cut through everything else.

I have a Bad Horsie and it sucks. The tone is absolute crap. I never use it.

The MXR 404/Bradshaw wah seems like a really good wah pedal. Haven't tried it, but the clips I've heard sounds super cool.
