    I tried both. I like the contol of the pedal but then I'm stuck in one spot.

    Anyone use either?
     
  2. I SAY ENVELOPE FILTER, A bigger name for auto wah (depends on how you use it), They're allot more tweakable and funky...

    For bass I prefer the autowah/envelope filter. I have a hard time keeping up with my playing if I use a regular wah.

    BTW, for bass wah pedal the Teese RMC-3 is the way to go. Great versatility, true bypass, great service from Geoffrey Teese.

    I have the Teese Picture wah for guitar and needless to say, my guitar wah needs are set for life.:D
     
  4. if you have to chose an auto wah or a crybaby get the crybaby... if you can afford a decent evelope filter go for that. Im still loving my moogerfooger, VERY FUNKY, but i also use my crybaby a lot too... usually with distortion (im weird, i put my distortion AFTER the wah but before the filter) and then i usually hold the wah in one position while playing then slowly sweep it up or down on a scale... very cool sounds.
