You should be able to get a deeper wah sound by making the filter have more gain.

A good pedal to try is a soft limiter, it gives the sound of valves at a fraction of the price.

If you want a really good pedal look up the zoom 707. Not sure if they are still being made but I have seen them turn up on ebay.
