I own a Dunlop crybaby and for 2 decades handeled the load, I recently bought a Fulltone and it does have a wider range-I like it very much.

...I appreciate what everyone is saying...no doubt we all have our preferences...me too.
I am a bare bones traditionalist, a knob turner, a flip switch non technical kinda guitar player kinda like Joe Walsh, I could care less if it can hold three or a hundred presents, just let me plug in set the tone and volumn and get out of the way cause the air and sound are comin at ya.
I own and play a base model Dunlop CryBaby...wouldn't want anything else, classic sound, easy to operate...other then the pain of a dead 9 volt battery on occasion I love it just the way it is.

Forget these overpriced models and get the MXR MC404 CAE Dual Inductor Wah. Switches between the classic Hendrix tone and throaty tone similar to what Iommi used, very versatile pedal.

I realize it will never win any awards for sound quality, but I really love the feature set of the Ibanez WD-7 weeping demon. I wish I could find a schematic to play around with the circuit.

Perhaps Guitar World can explain how a signature wah pedal is "essential" to begin with. Thoughts? Somewhat suspicious that you're in bed with most of the musicians and companies on this list to begin with. Doesn't do much for your credibility you know.

Thanks for adding the videos reviews to these roundups, that makes these MUCH more useful :)

What sort of mark-up does putting a signature on something add? What if I want my name on it? If I'm buying it, the only name I want on it is mine!
