So I'd like to get more into lead player land, and get some cool wah action going on for leads. I'm looking for something that has a great sound merely engaged and used in small doses as well as that "ripping wah solo" side of things.
I looked into wahs back in high school, had a crybaby classic, didn't really use it, sold it. My singer/rhythm guitarist had a crybaby standard, which he recently traded in. I'm not a huge fan of the voicing on it (at least on his rig), but my tech lent me his True bypass modded CB standard.
I *think* Ryan Knight uses Wah on the solos for The Black Dahlia Murder's "Ritual".
Someone made a youtube mix of his leads! Awesome!
Listen to Moonlight Equilibrium and On Stirring Seas of Salted Blood (and the rest!). I think that's an EMG-loaded guitar into a 5150III for recording, according to Whitechapel's guitarist.

Local cover band uses a Morley (Bad Horsie?) and it sounds pretty awesome as well.
I like the Morley thing where it turns on when you step on it, and it's off when you don't - none of the toe-down-off stuff. Not a deal breaker, but it doesn't hurt.
There's an RMC, Bud-Wah, Wylde sig and an EB Wah at one of the local stores.
What do you guys use, what do you like?
