    actually: funk its in your fingers (actually: in you)...

    but for recording funk lines i use my jazz bass (tone 0 and only bridge PUP) through a BOSS compressor (LMB-3) and a little EQ (boss GEB-7).

    Envelope Filters are pretty funky. So are wahs.

    You don't have to slap to be funky.

    The guyatone BR-2 is very good if you want a huge dubby bassy funk sorta sound, think bass line to Joss Stone - Fell in love with a boy.

    Hope this helps

    You can also get a reissue III+ for around $200. Not an original, but I always liked mine...very funky. Think Bootsy, late 70s Garcia, and Stevie Wonder funky.

    Akai Deep Impacts will give you some good synth funk sounds. I won't sell mine even though they are selling for the ungodly sum of $450 on ebay.

    I have no experience with the MuTron III+, but I have heard from many people that it is vastly inferior to the original.

    The III+ has a completely different circuit to the III :)

    While it's a perfectly good pedal, to reinforce what others said it's a different circuit than the original Mutron III. The reissue is from a company who has no affiliation with the original Mutron developers beyond buying the name.

    So... while the III+ is fine, if you want the mutron sound get a Mutron III.
