So which is it? Jimi Hendrix used it before. Most people today use it after. How does it sound? That’s the key. What if I like both, but for different uses?
I like before when I’m playing chords. It really makes things spike and pop when I want them to, just with the use of the wah wah pedal in front of the distortion pedals.
I like after when I’m playing individual strings. I think I get a better wah sound that actually has a range of changes. It isn’t just a spike or on/off sound like having the wah before distortion.
So I have decided to go with after. It seems more versatile…until I change my mind and go the other way.
