    I have a morley bad horsie 2

    I love it. Its optical so no pot to wear out or get scratchy. It has a contour switch that lets you dial it in and shape it. You can get very vocal sounds with this wah ... my first wah was a crybaby. I modded the hell out of it. I ended up giving it to my now ex brother in law. I like the bad horsie better. One gripe I have is its spring loaded and turns on the second you step on it. No on off switch. The spring keeps it in the off position and since it's made that way you cant rock it into a particular position and leave it. So no cocked wah tone. Other than that I love it. 4 out of 5 stars

    I've owned and used a bunch, but always come back to CryBabies. '90s standard CryBaby (modded for true bypass) on my small board, 95Q (the one with auto on/off, so no parked wah tone, but it's soooo handy for live use) on my big board. They just sound right to me.

    Modded Dunlop Cry Baby (range control to go from bass-wah to Hendrix wah - or something similar)...

    DiscumBOBulator V2 auto-wah - for when I am too lazy to wibble my foot (which is more often than not)

    Stock Crybaby Classic Fasel. Ive had a bunch, up to a Clyde Deluxe and this cheap Dunlop one does it just fine for me. My best one was a '78 Crybaby, it got too rickety though.

    Dunlop 95Q and an EHX Cock Fight for cocked wah tones and gnarly fuzz.

    I have an old Vox, that says it's a Thomas Organ...

    My usable one is a Jim Dunlop Cry-Baby 535 w/ mid boost & 5 position wah modes...

    I am very suprised how many people said the cry baby. I have never liked the voicing of the cry babies and always prefered Vox voicing and sweep. I currently have a vintage Vox from the late '60s and have always loved it. I havent found a modern wah that can compete with it's tone and character, I really love it.

    Crybaby here. Bought it in the early '90s. Never used it really though. Somehow I've never jived with them or gained the interest for some reason.

    I've always found this one to be mouthwatering sexy though:
