  2. which cry baby are you talking about?? the Dunlop 105Q,or the ten bazillion other ones out there? if your talking about the 105Q,I can say that is the best wah I ever used on bass,but I hav'nt tried the killer whail wah...I would love to try one.Tech21 makes some quality stuff.two modes of wah to choose from,and that BIG CHROME BOX sure is pretty..looks durable...wait I have an idea,go try both and let US know what YOU think..I would like a review(from a bass player) on that pedal....

    I have the Dunlop Crybaby bass wah. It is a white pedal, and automatically turns on when you step on it (push forward). It automatically shuts off when you release it (it is spring loaded and will back all the way off). While this takes some getting used to (not backing the pedal all the way off if you are sustaining a note.) I love it and have never found another pedal that I like better. It has adjustable vowel sounds and volume via pots underneath the pedal (impossible while on the fly)

    I don't recall the model number, but I have used it heavily for a couple years and it is still going strong...

    Hope that helps.

    Could I use guitar wah or do I need bass wah?
     
  5. try'em all.....what sounds good to me or anyone else may not sound good to you,but most "guitar" wah's do suck out a lot of low end. thats why a lot of people here like the 105Q(the white one :) ),but I would try every one you can get your hands on..BTW,the tech 21 looks looks nice...I think I said that already........:)

    well...I tried the tech 21....with a lakland skyline 55-01 , a gk backline and a no name 2x12...it sounded kind of too thin for me...and when I turn it on, my tone loss a lot of low end and volume...I ll try it with other rig soon

    btw, the crybaby my friend offered to me, wasn t the white one...it was a black one, with 6-position switch..... for the price, I m thinking about the white dunlop (bass wha only for bass, isn t it?)
    ...don t know yet! I will keep trying ;)

    thank u all
