EH Wah

I just got this delivered and am ecstatic in my money spent. I've been using wah wahs for 30 years. First Duncan Crybabys and then Vox. The Vox has been a great unit as far as the sound I wanted. Unfortunately, the pots always burn out and I have a half dozen useless units. I purchased an expensive boutique one used on eBay that did a lot more, but the sound wasn't right. I read about the EH unit, and was intrigued it has no moving parts and the logo lights when turned on. I wanted something as low tech as possible as well this time around. I plugged it in, followed the directions to calibrate and I'm playing through the best wah sound I've ever had. This is the "better mousetrap", a true 21st century innovation. For an old time player like myself who knows what he wants, this thing kills. If you have any doubt coming from a true wah wah if you will like this new design, leave your doubts at the door. Knowing I never have to replace it is nice to think about too. I'll be giving out the old ones for paper weights to loved ones at Christmas. Buy this!!!!!!!!! Now time to play "No Quarter".....

What a Nice Surprise

Very happy with this wah. I have two issues with wahs - switches that do not properly engage or noise introduced. I have tried many wahs in the past 40 years. This wah alleviates both issues. Now, add to that the pedal has a nice range of sweep - i.e. it sounds great. When you examine the workings of the pedal it is natural but by feel, it is not...It does take a second to get used to its operation. When it sits flat and is engaged; that is the pedal all the way down, full treble. A dip of your foot to push it just a bit passed flat and it is on or off. No 'ifs,' 'ands' or 'buts.' It also plays well with other pedals - a chorus does not make it squeal. The only caveat is transporting it on a pedal board. In that you have to get creative.

Crying is Good Tone, Baby

I had a 535Q Crybaby that I hated - I could never get it under control, no matter where I placed it, it was extremely noisy and it obliterated my high end, which I thought wahs were supposed to accentuate-Enough about the one I didn't like. I LOVE this Crying Tone pedal-it does what I expected it to, feels very natural even though it is un-traditional in having no separate moving top. I have mine on the floor-not sure how you would use it on a board. It's completely silent when off, boosts treble significantly when left on and flat on the floor, which can be useful. I use mine after the OD and dirt but I tried it out front and it was also very good. I'm extremely satisfied.

The electro-harmonix Next Step Crying Tone Wah Effects Pedal

I have been using wah, Fuzz, and Volume pedals for 20 years on my bass rig. I have had custom cry baby's and even a Foxx wah/fuzz/volume *modded*. For the price I don't think you can beat this little guy. It has the cradle for pedal boards, and is light and easy to use. The bypass helps you, since unless you want to do swells you don't need a volume knob. (I use the one on my bass) The only downside is, you can turn it on by accident if you hit it trying to turn something else on your pedal board, and to change bypass and fuzz it is hard to see if you don't have a light source. I'm a big synthase sound guy, and this pedal has a lot of things it can do on its own, and with other pedals. Great pedal, save some money and get this one. Don't spend 200.00 up on something that will break or stop working if you are ruff on pedals.

Crying Tone Wah Pedal

Nice range of tone that blends well with my other effects sounds. Overdriven, it holds a nice even spectrum of high to low.
