Top 5 Best Wah Pedals

It seems wah pedals are the evergreens of guitar effects. They've been the most popular guitar pedals ever since the first one hit the market. It's very unlikely that a guitar player would never own one. Being a very expressive effect, guitar players can use it in almost any style. It's suitable for rhythm as well as lead playing.
