    Well, not really new, but I traded a Santa Ana overdrive for a Dunlop GCB-95 wah and a TS9 (smooth deal with Roryfan).

    I haven’t plugged in the TS9 yet but the wah sound fabulous. I received them Monday night but went on a little run down to Ohio and back through Detroit this week so I just got to try the wah last night.

    I love the simplicity of a wah. It’s so user dependent. Most effects are not so impacted by technique.

    What wahs are you using? I’ve had many over the years. Frankly this one sounds as good or better than what I’ve used in the past.

    Nice rig. Looks like fun.

    Being between electric gigs I only have the wah within the Boss ME-80. Typically I would have a Crybaby though, because I got locked into that tone and function as a younger player and never really broke the indoctrination. Should a working band opportunity arise I'd get another. Had a George Dennis bass wah for a while.

    Yeah I’m in an “electric phase” these days.

    Six or eight months ago I was playing nothing but acoustics, mostly a classical.

    No gigs for me. Been there, done that, don’t regret a single minute, but no, staying up until 3:00 or 4:00 AM to help some bar owner sell beer.....no longer very appealing to me.

    I use a Plutoniuem ChiWahWah which is different in some ways to a regular wah like the GCB-95. I also have GCB-95 that was modded for me. It's the best wah I ever had. It's still with me but I just find it too big for my board now while the Chiwahwah fits in perfectly.

    LMAO, I though you were effing with me.

    Chiwahwah.....best name for a wah ever.

    Just checked out a youtube clip, that’s an awesome sounding wah. Love the tiny footprint.

    LOL They also have this cheesy website that looks more like their selling something else instead of guitar pedals.

    Welcome to Plutoneium Sonic Engineering

    I have 6 or so. One is a stock Cry Baby. One is a wah I built and tuned, using a big old ferrite inductor. One is a Caline mini-wah/volume, one is a footswept state-variable filter with built-in overdrive, another is a Morley Power-wah/fuzz, and finally I was bequeathed an old Korg Mr. Multi last year. The Mr. Multi has a wah, "double wah", and 4-stage phaser mode, that can either be directly swept with your foot, or else auto-swept with an LFO, whose rate is foot-controlled. I say "or so" because the Line 6 M5 unit has a bunch of wahs that can be operated with an expression pedal, and the Chase Bliss Condor is able to have its midrange and lowpass filter both swept via expression pedal, separately or in combination. A favorite? Nah. They all do something different and have their own unique charm.

    Cool stuff.
    Enjoy!

    I have a Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah.
    I'm not so co-ordinated with the pedal part of a way--so an Auto one works better for me.
    Although there is a jack to hook up an expression pedal so I can work it like a normal Wah.

    (Although I use a volume pedal no problem)

    You need an amanda-board now ;)

    I really liked the tone of the budda wah I used to have. Haven't thought much about them since.

    GCB-95 for me too. I suck at playing the wah though. Hardly use it. Still an older keeper though.

    The TS9 sounds groovy too.

    So, what’s the difference between the full sized pedal and the mini, other than the size and the absence of a battery terminal?

    I still have an Ibanez TS10 classic I bought at Music & Sound in the 80's. Because SRV had a tube screamer. I did not know the difference between TS9, TS10.

    For wah I've got a boss AW-something....it's funky on keys/clavcsounds. I once found a mis-priced Morley PowerWah, big chrome box with an ac cord, @ Remenyi house of music. I remember *running* to find a bank machine to get the $40.00 to buy it.

    And I've got a zvex ooh-wah. Fun to play around with, all but useless for gigging.

    Well this Crybaby seems to really like the TS9 and Sparkle drive mod.

    It seems to make it easy to find those resonant frequencies and breaks into harmonic feedback nicley.

    I have an old school Crybaby wah as well as a Behringer Hellbabe ModelHB01. I have no idea when I acquired the Hellbabe , I just found it in a box of cables?
