Tell me about your wah pedal(s)

Besides still wanting a guitar with single coil pickups (probably a Tele), the one other thing I want to add to my small/basic/decent set up is a wah pedal. I bought a Dunlap Cry Baby in 1969 that was stolen from me in '71 or '72. I haven't owned or even used a wah since. I'm overdue!
So tell me about you favorite wah- the whys, hows, and therefores, etc. I'm included to go with another Cry Baby like I had way back when, but a lot of volts have run through a billion wires since then so am open to other ideas.

that said, the crybaby may sound pretty good with your princeton, but could get squaky with your bridge pickup. i would try as many different ones as you can. they are all similar yet different, hence all of the artist signature wahs that are out there.

Good info, man, thanks! With having tinnitus and hyperacusis, I'm rather high pitch sensitive. I probably never noticed the more harsh high end treble back then. Something to consider, for sure.
I'll check out the budwah, thanks!
The Dunlop 535-Q is such a wah, and it is super easy to dial in great tones for use with various guitars and amps. I'm pretty sure Mike McCready used to use one of these. I've had mine for probably 15 years and it effectively ended my search for the perfect wah pedal.
Good luck, Brian!
Looks like the BudWah is no longer available so I was doing a little more research and just- and I mean just, lol!- was reading up on the 535-Q. Adding your recommendation makes this one a very strong contender! Thanks, dudeman!
