Finally a usable budget wah

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Wailer Wah Wah Pedal:

I've had the Wailer Wah for about a month. I use Dimarzio Tone Zone humbuckers into a Marshall JCM 900, and I play old-school thrash metal. This is a good wah pedal, the only budget wah I have found which actually has a usable tone. It sounds good with both heavy and light distortion, and also good with a clean tone. At first glance it is a cheaper and lighter clone of the standard basic Crybaby, the most basic wah type, really just a tone control for your foot. But it has, IMO, a far superior tone to the basic Crybaby. EHX really paid attention to the tone parameters of this pedal. It sounds good at every position. Tone-wise, this wah smokes all but the higher-end wahs, and absolutely destroys the newer budget level Dunlops and Morleys and other price equivalents like the Behringer and Modtone. Yes, I expect the traditional pot-type circuitry to wear out and get scratchy after a few years, but that's a problem of all traditional wahs, and at least it will be relatively affordable to replace. The Wailer Wah is super light, it's easy to change the battery, it's low-noise, and it's true bypass. If there is one thing this wah lacks, it's an LED indicator light. This replaced an Ibanez Weeping Demon Jr. on my board (a pedal that had everything going for it except good tone) and sounds so good I actually use it. Before the Ibanez I briefly used a Morley Power Wah (junk) and before that, various Crybabys. Unless I get rich suddenly, the Wailer Wah is a keeper.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Wailer Wah Wah Pedal:

    Bought this pedal to replace a beat-up Cry Baby GCB95. I am extremely satisfied with the sound range of the pedal. The "wah" effect starts at a lower frequency than my previous pedal…and it is a good thing! It is still punchy at the toe position but it is not as "harsh" as the GCB95. The sound is a lot smoother. To my ear anyway. The feel of the foot switch is a bit different but when you get the hang of it…boy it does wonders! I was not too much of a "wah" type guy with my old pedal. But now, I have rediscovered the pleasure and nuance that a "wah" pedal can bring. The plastic casing was kind of worrying me but turns out it is pretty solid and a LOT lighter than the GCB95 which makes the Wailer Wah perfect to carry around. Thumbs up to Electro Harmonix to make such a great pedal for this price! I would recommend this pedal with 2 thumbs up to anyone.

    What's all the crying about?

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Wailer Wah Wah Pedal:

    This wah is based on the crybaby, and in 1 word.....excellent!
    Easy access to the battery, very sturdy and lightweight.
    Sounds fantastic, it has a little bit wider range than the original Dunlop crybaby wah, which makes for more tonal possibilities.
    Get it you won't be disappointed!

    Best Wah for the buck!

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Wailer Wah Wah Pedal:

    I'm very happy with the tone and performance of this pedal. I've only had it for a week but
    I like it better than previous similar priced Wah pedals I've owned during 35+ years of playing everything from bar gigs to large stage venues.
    I love the classic rock tones I'm getting. Easy to find a tone and leave it there if that's your thing.
    So far on / off switch doesn't look like it will be a problem like other pedals.

    Great Alternative Wah for the price

    By Lmchopper

    from Loveland, CO

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Wailer Wah Wah Pedal:

    The EHX Wah pedal is a great alternative to the standard, and more expensive wah pedals on the market. The frequency range is excellent and the product material is light weight. It is definitely not a high end pedal with fancy features, or voicing but it is a simple plug in and play wah. I would place its sonic capability around your standard cry baby, and with a wider tonal range compared to the cheaper wahs around the same price. Unlike other non-metal pedals this material does not feel like a cheap, flimsy plastic. I know some people do not like the plastic but it seems durable enough, and I prefer the weight saving aspect compared to the heavier metal materials other wahs are made out of. The only down side is the lack of an indicator light to inform you if the pedal is on or off. Just make sure to double check if your running off a 9V. I have it hooked up to my daisy chain power supply and it is apparent when it is on, so no complaints here.
