    Hello all
    I am disapointed with the Dunlop bass wah (delay in switching and poor sweep range) has anyone tried a aw-3 with an exspression pedal, how did it sound? I am also interested in more info on the Teese mc-3 wah, and anyone who has tried a wah modified by roger mayer.
    I am also interested in a boss ps-3 pitch shifter with an exspression pedal to do a whammy sound, has anyone tried this, how does it sound compaired to a digitech whammy?

    Thank you for any assistance!

  2. The AW-3 is noisy as hell. I wouldn't waste my money. You could get a Roger Mayer Vision Wah for the same cost as the AW-3 plus an EV-5.

    I have two wahs that have been modded by Mayer (one early 60s, one mid 70s)...I haven't tried either with a bass, though. I would try it for you, but I've never used the Dunlop or Boss, so I wouldn't know what to compare them to. On guitar, they don't have as much sweep as alot of Crybabies I've seen, but they don't get that awful nasally high-end shrill, either. I like 'em both, but I have been thinking of getting the older one re-modded, since it's getting a little weak. Roger's Vision Wahs are incredible, but I don't know if they are worth the money.
