    First off: Yes, I did a search, but neither the 'mother of all EV filter threads' as Freaky called it or any other thread answered my question. What is the difference between an auto-wah and an EV filter? I've been getting those two mixed up a lot lately. I'm looking for a nice, funky wah sound to use while I'm recording this summer, we're doing a few funk jams that I think a good wah sound could really improve. Thing is, I am neither patient nor coordinated enough to use a true wah. So I'm going to get a simple stompbox... but this question has been precluding that. I'm looking for a thick, chunky wah sound, kind of like the bass sound during the breakdown in 'Free' by Phish. Help? :confused:
