    Hey all, does anyone know what FX Ben Shepherd used during the Soundgarden song 'My Wave'?
     
  2. Sounds like a wah or an autowah to me, what pedal it actually is I don't know.

    I thought it was a wah as well. Im sure i read somewhere that he used a morley but i could be thinking of someone else.

    take into account too he has flatwounds strung on that p so that has a lot to do with that particular sound. oh and his tuning. but i believe its a wah and i was under the impression, although i could very well be wrong, that it was dunlop 105 q.
     
  5. In that time Soundgarden used to regularily pose in dunlop wah advertisements so I guess it`s more likely dunlopĀ“than morley.

    did he always use flats, or just for that tune? Interesting, gotta pull out that disc and inspect!
