Wah pedals reviews

A comparison (or maybe just a demo) of the Dunlop Crybaby, EVH Crybaby, Fulltone Clyde Wah, and EX-7 with 2 wah models (Crybaby and Vox McCoy). Using a Marshall JVM 410H. Guitars were my Suhr Classic and my Michael Kelly Patriot Shadow with Rockfield pickups.

I suddenly felt like I needed to look into playing with wah pedals more, so I started by digging up my Fulltone Clyde Wah and my Digitech EX-7. I also went to Music Centre Canada and they were kind enough to let me take home a regular Crybaby and an EVH Crybaby by Dunlop for testing.

I played these pedals for quite a bit over the weekend, and they all have their own thing going for them. The EVH Wah surprised me. I thought it sounded really good, especially with some gain. The regular Crybaby didn't seem to suck tone and have any drawbacks really, although I have read comments about how some think it's poorly made and a real tone sucker. Didn't notice.

The EX-7 wah models on the default settings did sound a bit so-so, in comparison to the other pedals. However, these wah models can be tweaked quite a bit, something I didn't do this time.

So can you guess which of the Dunlop Wah pedals I bought?


Here's what my messing around with da Wahs sounded like. Let me hear which pedal you think sound the best!
