Favorite wah?
by rohaya on 2012-08-06 10:38:42

Oh and I would like to know people's favorite wah's on the HD 500!

I can't seem to find one that has a good growl/quack (Think Voodoo Chile intro.....)

I place them in front of the entire chain, before any overdrive.

i think i use the custom chrome for my voodoo chile patch.  either that or the last one.

FWIW, i have a morley bad horsie that i use for most wah tones, so I don't use the onboard effects very often.

Thank you for the answer Meambobbo.

Yes, that was always my favorite wah on the X3L.

I've tried all the wahs and the vetta wah is my favorite.  Back the mix down to around 60% and you're ready to go.

Stratchamp, thanks a lot!

Actually, I've overlooked the Vetta Wah, maybe 'cause I wanted to "believe" in the more vintage models.....?

You're right, backing off the mix a bit with the Vetta seems to give me that mid-growl that I was looking for. That quacky break-up point in the middle of the pedal sweep, right before it goes into the treble area!

Great tip!

No problem, glad you're liking it. 

Yeah, I went through all the wahs one by one and the vetta had the best sweep and tone out of the lot.
