Looking for a wah that I can keep off in my chain without it sucking my tone like a crybaby. Doesn't necessarily have to be true bypass, but that would be nice. sub 100 dollars
thanks

A cheap and used MIC Vox v847 +True Bypass Kit is the way to go, if you're up for some mild tinkering.

That said, I'd be just as curious as to your preferred Wah type, be it vintage (short throw, strong midrange Q) or "modern" (full freq)...So many wahs respond differently to fuzz and ice picky toanz, too. Before I joined Moollon I had a Dunlop 535Q (did a lot of decent tones, none "just right" + muffled bypass), and then a v847 modded with TB and an LED, which was nice both on and off but felt a bit dead where it counted for me in the mids...especially noted after I scored a used Moollon Vintage Wah (TB version), which has the whole ICAR pot and very short throw.

I've been using a Snarling Dogs for a bit now. The Snarling Dogs Whine-O-Wah is a good one. True bypass as standard and three switchable ranges with gain and tone.

If you like the sound of your wah when it's on you could always just convert it to true bypass?

If you like your Cry Baby then you could leave it on in the loop of something like a Boss LS-2 and then use the LS-2 to bypass it when you don't need it.

I had a 535Q wah recently (got it as part of a trade) and it was fucking great. Look for one which doesn't need an 18v supply (the older ones do), but I was loathe to get rid of it.



(Although I do have two others, which classes as an unhealthy wah habit in my book).
