    price can be a factor, but also give an answer if price wasn't an issue.

    The Stanley Clarke wah is MUCH more flexible. I've owned both.

    Sorry for reviving a dud but I have the exact same question.
    The EBS Stanley C. so far seems to me as the best sounding bass wah from the few YT clips available.
    Anybody care to chime in? Thanks!

    I currently use a Morley dual Bass Wah. I like it in combination with fuzz/overdrive in front (not behind) but not so much as single effect.
    I am going to add an Ibanez weeping demon - nothing but good reviews on that so far. I solely use wahs with auto-off function like the morleys, so my choice is a bit limited

    i finally decided on the stanley clarke wah. i have read that you can add in you clean in the highpass, bandpass, and boosted bandpass. the boosted bandpass sounds cool. the wah one didn't have enough options. i'm not much of an options guy when it comes to wahs, but the wah one doesn't have enough for me. the wah one has highpass/lowpass, tube simulator, high q, amd range. thanks for your post and to all of the talkbass members that helped me on my search for a wah pedal. the price is a shame though.

    Have you checked out the G-Lab Wowee? I'm thinking of picking one of those up, ones of the best wahs I've heard on bass. It always sounds like it has some low end intact all the way through the sweep:



    I have a Sonuus Wahoo which sounds great and is the most flexible wah on the planet, but I'm looking into this because I want some thing with automatic switching and also true bypass, and I think the G-Lab is the only one that ticks those boxes.

    G-lab makes great stuff, I'd be keen to try that wah too.

    I've done a video review of the Stanley Clarke Wah here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6yGRdhubj4

    Overall I'm happy with it and would recommend it, I've just been a bit disappointed with the build quality as you can see in the video.

    Boosted bandpass rocks, it beats the Dunlop bass wah and various multieffect wahs I've used in the past. I haven't played the Wah One so can't compare. On the Wah One you can't switch between volume and wah with your foot on the fly. You have to flick a switch on the front panel. With the SC Wah you can have the volume and wah ready to go at any time so the SC really wins here.

    Of course the recording setups may differ wildly and I couldn't make a proper judgement without trying them both, but the G-Lab wah demo sounds miles better to me.

    Dealer list is here if you are thinking about one: http://www.tsidistributing.com/index.php/where_to_buy/

    i have a fuzz pedal. how does fuzz sound when add to the stanley clarke or wowwee?

    Had some spare time today so I made a video of the Stanley Clarke Wah with my Klinger Custom Fuzz pedal. Enjoy!

    Cool Video, pretty awesome with the fuzz.

    I've really needed to upgrade my wah for a while.
    I'm using a George Lynch Dragon Wah. Really only bought that one cause it looks awesome, but cuts WAY to much bass.
    I've been wanting the Wowee for years but for now I think i'm just going to put something under the rocker pedal to keep it from going all the way down in hopes of retaining a little bit of bass.
