    I dont know if anyone else out there has experienced this, but whenever I kick on my crybaby it completely kills my low end. Any suggestions? If people out there dont have this problem then where is it in your chain? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cry Baby's are terrible for bass. Not only do they effect the sound but I have trouble not clicking the on/off button which is placed directly beneath the pedal! I use an ancient E-H wah pedal that works better in every way.

    Guys, you've got to try the Crybaby Bass Wah - it rocks big time - there's a full review on my web-page, but basically, it answers both of your problems with wah pedals.

    cheers

    Steve thanks for the information on th Bass Cry Baby Wah.
    I saw one in Musicians Friends for $100.00 and wondered if
    it would be worth it.I think I will try to get one for
    Christmas.

    I know I'm a total moron but I couldnt find the review on your site. Is the on/off switch NOT under the pedal on this one?

    What do you know about the Snarling Dogs Bass Wah....anyone?

    I own a Snarling Dogs Bawl Buster Bass Wah. In my opinion, it's a piece of crap. It is EXTREMELY hard to switch it on and off, which might be fine for a good sounding wah, but while playing a "normal" bassline through this wah, it resonates like hell in the "+" position. On the plus side, it looks reeeaaaallly cool, but with wah pedals, looks don't really mean anything(such is life). Bottom line, I wouldn't recommend it.
