another great wah lesson.  Since we're talking about wah's, can you recommend the best wah for the money?  Or perhaps in spirit of Dolphin Street to find the most economical wah that functions best?

I would love to know that secret too!!! I have a hard time getting a really deep growly wah tone, I have tried placing my wah in all different positions in my pedal chain to no avail, mine is a Dunlop GCB-95 Cry Baby.
I just found this pedal review by the man himself & he likes what I already have.

Yep, the standard Crybaby is the one I like the best!

You may need to play around with gain pedals and where in the chain you put the pedal.

I adjusted the sweep on the pot on my Crybaby & it has made it sound more like what I have been looking for.
Very simple mod but had the desired fx. 8)

Thought this might give you some more inspiration with that new wah DB , sounds pretty cool I think, found on Strat Talk.
