Yup, but not for discussion on here, cuz although I respect the fact that people have opinions on stuff, it seems with some folk on 'ere that if it ain't their opinion, it's the wrong one.

Not naming names either, unless you bribe me.

My something specific is music related, for what it's worth.

I've got a Morley Wah. I never use it actually. There's the whole 'True Bypass' gumpf with a lot of wah pedals. You turn a lot of wah's off and they don't run the signal through cleanly. Mine doesn't have true bypass and is a bit too noisy. Kinda put me off using it.

That Cry Baby is a fairly decent pedal though from what I can gather and at a decent price.
Regards,

Jim

Oh, that sucks a bit. Hope mine's not got that problem. Have to see I guess. You would have thought that havinga true bypass would be fairly trivial to do, in terms of the actual electronics/wiring involved. The JD Crybaby's are meant to be the quintessential wah pedal. They got for about £80 new but I'd purposely gone for slightly battered cheap one as I don't really know how much use I'll get out of it.

Fuck it. I like noisy signals they have more charachter. Although, It has to be said that I haven't really played guitar for about five or six months.

Yeah not sure about the spec on that model, but I know that many guitarists whinge about Wah pedals sucking tone. It's always been a bit of an issue as far back as I can remember. I've had a couple of wahs & they've both been dire. I suppose it's why many touring artists have midi-controllable amps & rack equipment. At the touch of a button you can change any settings to tame various signals going into different equipment. Us mortals don't have that privilege. That said, these subtleties are often only noticeable to the ears of pinnickety tone geeks.
I'm dithering on about fuck all again. You'll have to humour me.
Regards,

Jim

I might notice. I'm pretty picky about my clean tone and try and avoid using too many pedals in sequence for that reason. Ah well, we'll see I guess.

Agreed. There's a lot to be said for that. Tone is often a matter of preference, although a lot of players would prefer to have the wah as a transparent effect rather than it's circuitry being a founding feature of their tone.

I can see why people would want that to be the case. I just like to work around it, I always find a way generally. I guess I am addicted to pissing about with such things.

Skink's like a sonic sculptor. To him a noisy signal is just an interesting bit of rock. :D

Well, I am having a shitload of fun with this pedal. My favourite is using it quite subtle with a clean sound, you can add lots of expression to your playing using it like that.

Nice one, can't grumble about that! I bagged an old russian one a little while back. Quality pedals.
