    Does anybody have the Boss AW-3 Auto-Wah with Bass Input and guitar input???? How does it rate
    against other env. filters/auto-wahs out there? Does it work well for bass/guitar?

  2. I've got one. The sound isn't as good as a Q-Tron, but it's a lot more versatile and built much more sturdily. Even when plugging into the bass input, there's a slight treble boost, but no low end is lost; as a matter of fact, the low end can get quite obscene on the low-pass modes if you use a hot neck pickup on the B or E strings.

    One warning: my unit seems to have some intermodulation distortion going on in the Humanizer section.
