    bass wah with fuzz, hmmm...
    I'd really like to hear some samples of this - I wonder if they just added a fuzz circuit to the Bawl Buster? I'm assuming that's the fuzz 'switch' that seems to be in a silly place (right in front of the toes)? Interesting - these will probably sell like hotcakes regardless of what it sounds like...

    Who knows, looks like it might be a Bawl Buster with fuzz, but we'll find out as soon as you buy one ;)

    hehe, probably not - the Bawl Buster by itself is a kickass wah. I'd rather use that w/ a fuzz box unless this thing is magical (which I doubt, we'll see). Seriously, doesn't that switch look like it's in a stupid place?

    Yes, it does. I have a hard enough time hitting the one on the side of a Morley, let alone this foot shaped device.
  5. I'm digging it!
  6. I'm not sure I can think of a better place to put the fuzz switch... you don't have to move your foot off of the pedal to switch between 'wah' and fuzz-wah', just rotate your foot a little and kick the fuzz in (or out) on the down stroke.

    I'm intrested in hearing how this wah sounds. Im looking for a wah to give me a huge screaming swell (mostly for use with distortion) I had the white Dunlop crybaby bass wah, but it never could cut it. It was that funk/porno wah sound, when i was looking for a scream.

    The Snarling Dogs Mold Spore I owned for a while was a better wah than the Dunlop 105q, so this could be really good.

    But I would have thought a Bootsy pedal should have been a decent Mutron clone.

    The way the promo said 'wah/filter' or whatever, I couldn't really tell whether they meant 'wah-type filter', or 'wah/ENVELOPE-filter', like I'd think would be the case for a 'Bootsy sig' sound.

    I was at a Steve Kimock Band show last month... Reed Mathis used a Bawl Buster pedal. He absolutly blew me away, probably one of the coolest non slapping effect solos I've heard. One of those things with some of that bootsy fuzz would be amazing. Can't wait to hear it!

    I do not agree. My experiences with the Bawl Buster Bass Wah have not been kickass. It looks cooler than any wah, but in terms of sound it's never been able to produce with me.

    Hell yeah, I love the Reed Mathis talk in this forum - he's the most unique user of effects on bass that I can think of :bassist:

    Ever since getting the bass pod, i need a wah to complete my sound. I want a thick, kick-you-in-the-face wah which this looks like it has. I'm getting giddy in my pants. :hyper:
    Anyone have an idea for a flexible auto-wah for =<$100???
  15. Any one tried one of these pedals yet, I'm curios because I was almost set on a Morley wah. But now I want to hear one of these

    My mind is spinning thinking about this pedal. Is it already out? If not anyone got a date?
