105Q Bass Wah Distorts Distortion Unwanted

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by yakmastermax, Mar 7, 2017.

  1. Hey all

    Recently been messing with my Dunlop 105Q Bass Wah pedal, and it has been distorting on me pretty bad. First item in my signal chain...

    Any ideas?

    Active or passive bass?

    Are you running other pedals before or after it that might be contributing?

    Lastly what kind of amp are you using and on what settings, I.E. clean or dirty?

    I only use wah on guitar mainly and even my hottest guitar doesn't breakup much when my amp is clean. However when I play wah into the lead channel of my tube amp it has a quasi fuzz level of snarl and breakup which sounds amazing for the right stuff.

    If I had to guess I would say your bass and or amp are just too hot, try turning down a bit and seeing if it cleans up.
