haha. welcome to the club.

it seems i'm GASing for something different every day, but i have been for a new wah for a while. i've had my current one for probably 6 or 7 years now. i think it might be time for a change. plus, the switchless thing is just calling my name. :roll: since i usually don't play with a rhythm guitarist (just singer, me, bass, and drums) i really need to transition more quickly. that switch is just a pain.

yeah, I've had the Tremonti wah for over two years now and absolutely love to hear it everytime I push my foot down. That's another reason they're so cool, you don't have to actually push/click it to get it to come on and off.

Go for it! You won't regret it.

yeah, switches are my worst enemy! Everytime I touched it: "is it on?", "is it off?" I hated them! The 95q got me started on switchless, then the Morley BHII made me forget about crybaby wahs altogether. The sweep range is three times as large on a Morley as it is on a crybaby. Going back to a crybaby just FEELS wrong now, ESPECIALLY with a blasted switch. Yuck... The switchless feature on Morleys are a super time saver (and headache reducer!) and it makes the 'pedal dance' ten times easier...

whoever asked about a boost/OD pedal w/ rectos, there's tons of old threads on here about that topic. for me a boost is completely necessary, especially for playing with a group. Without it my tone is "just okay," with it my tone is freaking badass! plus its nice to use it to toggle between rhythm and harder rhythm tones.

i would guess it is a lonestar classic. i personally can't really tell from that angle. i would say LSC simply because if it is with a band such as alter bridge, i'd think they'd be using it for cleans, and they would need a very loud clean amp. i'm assuming that is miles's amp? i'm kidna suprised tremonti hasn't started using the lonestar instead of the fender for his cleans.
