i was wondering which pedal gets the best funk sound
the 105 wah and the agent 00 funk, coool bubbles
also the Korg G5, but impossible to find
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.
Mutron, Q-Tron, Bass Crybaby, etc.
MXR M-188 Bass Auto Q & Dunlop 105q Bass Crybaby.
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
I always like my Akai Deep Impact
MuTron III. You can get them all day on Ebay for $500.
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.
that sounds perfect thanks alot guys
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.
Or a Pigtronix
