    I have a Zakk Wylde Wah...Dunlop I think makes it.
    Its ok, about average, fairly well built. Nothing special otherwise, like most of Zakks endorsed stuff.

    I've generally just used a Vox reissue for the 23 sec a night i step on a wah.Modded true bypass,vocal mod etc etc....
    In the last few months i have been lucky enough to score a couple vintage units a 68 Clyde and a mint in the box Super Crybaby.They both sound good but the Vox sounds fine too with some tweekage that is :smile:

    Hey, related question. I've had two different V847s over the years. The latest one Ive modded for TB, just got a foxrox buffer and a whipple inductor but haven't installed yet. I also just snagged a bog standard crybaby as a deal sweetener - it's a bit crackly and looks like the pot needs to be replaced.
    But, the "wah" of the CB is much bigger than the voxes, which sound more subtle like "weh weh weh" than the CB's "Wauw Wauw" (that's hard to express in writing). Can I extend the range of the Vox somehow? Been thinking about the 100k resistor vocal mod - will that help? Will the whipple make much of a difference?
    I'm actually kinda liking the CB - sounds like Thin Lizzy from the 70s...

    I got this one too! I have just done the mid boost mod, which make the bass to treble sweep much better! I'm waiting for the new switch to come in to perform the true bypass and led mode! But I'm planning to upgrade to a Fulltone soon....

    I have 4 wah pedals here. A Vox V848, George Dennis Wah-Plus, a GCB95 that was modded by Russ Goudie and just recently a friend lent me a vintage Colorsound Wah (not the reissue) This one has got the widest sweep of any wah I've ever tried. Great for playing funk. I like the Colorsound the best altho it needs a true bypass switch and maybe even a DC input jack. Here's a photo of it.
