Wah Pedal Reviews

Independent reviews of the best wah pedals.

Vox V847A Wah Pedal

The Dunlop Crybaby may be the best-known Wah pedal in popular culture, but Vox has often been credited with inventing the Wah pedal in the 60s, so clearly it’s something they know a bit about. With the Vox V847, they’ve taken that experience and supplemented it with more modern technology to produce their newest effort. The result is a competitively priced pedal targeting newbies looking to incorporate a Wah effect into their sound.

MXR MC404 CAE Crybaby Wah Pedal

Here’s yet another adaptation on the original Crybaby. But with so many mods around, what does the MC404 have to offer the original doesn’t? Well, as well a boost button, the MC404 features switchable inductors meaning you can change the timbre of the sound quite dramatically from ‘red’ for a warmer sound to ‘yellow’ for a more biting tone. Our preference was for the ‘red’ setting as on ‘yellow’ we found the sound to be a little harsh, but other guitarists may think differently, depending on their set-up.

Clyde Deluxe Wah Pedal

Fulltone is well known for quality pedals and stompboxes. Their Wah pedals, in particular, possess great tone and a wider range of sweep than others, including Dunlop’s ubiquitous Crybaby. There are two versions of the Fulltone Clyde Wah pedal. As the name implies, this is the deluxe model. What makes this different from its counterpart is the added flexibility of an input boost and a selector switch for 3 separate Wah settings aptly named ‘Shaft’, ‘Jimi’ and ‘Whacked’.

Kirk Hammett Crybaby Wah Pedal

Following on from the successful Dimebag Darrell Crybaby, Dunlop has introduced a Kirk Hammett model, due to penchant for Wah in his lead playing. If you were hoping for a better paint job this time, you’re out of luck. Dunlop has stuck an image of a skeletal foot on the rocker. And, unlike the Dimebag version, Kirk’s doesn’t come with any embellishments to tweak the sound in any way. This is a straight-talking Wah pedal.

Zakk Wylde Crybaby Wah Pedal

Dunlop’s Zakk Wylde version of the Crybaby looks pretty much the same as the original, aside from the Zakk Wylde branding on the rocker. The big difference is on the inside, where electronics have been modified to deliver improved performance when it comes to higher levels of drive, sustain and that typically beefy sound associated with its namesake.

Original Crybaby

There can be few guitarists who haven’t heard of (or used) the Dunlop Crybaby. When it comes to Wah pedals, it has ruled the roost since the 60s. And deservedly so, even today, few pedals come near to the classic stompbox that Hendrix used to rock the world all those years ago.

DB-01 Dimebag Crybaby from Hell Wah Pedal

Thanks to the musical nuances of the likes of Kirk Hammett and Dimebag Darrell, the Wah pedal has become a distinctive sound in metal music. To capitalise on the trend, Dunlop has developed a version of the Crybaby specifically for the metal market, based on the late great Dimebag Darrell’s use of the effect in his work with Pantera.

The Crybaby 535Q Multi-Wah sees Dunlop go all out with their customisation of the original great Crybaby. The Q dial and the volume that appeared on the 95Q model are here on this version, but this time there are six different Wah ranges for you to play around with as well.

Budda Budwah Wah Pedal

Wah pedals should be easy to use and the BudWah from Budda Amplification is no exception. Consisting of a rocker pedal, input and output jacks and DC power supply socket, the BudWah has everything you need in a Wah pedal. Build-wise, this clunky purple pedal looked and felt sturdy, although some users have complained that it perhaps didn’t last as long as it should.
