Anyone recommend me a good Wah pedal, don't say Dunlop though or the Hendrix one, ive played through both and don't like them.

I'm looking for something like the Morley Vai one, with a wider range but maybe not as expensive as that one.

Does anyone know what Wah pedal Petrucci of Dream Theater uses, i like his sound but it's not on guitargeek?

Cheers guys

no clue what john petrucci uses, but ibanez came out with a new wah, weeping demon i think, and theres one i saw a while back called the snarling dog which seemed alright. Hope this helps.

Cheers

Pettrucci uses a Dunlop rack wah: http://www.johnpetrucci.com/equipment_6degrees.html Although its expensive, the Vox wah is awesome. Hendrix didn't use a Dunlop, he used a Vox. 8)

I've heard that Morely's Vai Wah, the Bad Horsie Wah, is ideal because you don't have to mess with clicking on the button and then manipulating it, like on the cry babies. Just stepping on the foot pedal engages the effect. I've heard there is a slight delay in disengaging it, but nothing major (.5 sec or something). Its a little pricey, but I'd get that one over anything else. And it sounds killer :D
