    Has anyone tried them both, and which one do you prefer ?

    I have the opportunity to buy them both ''second handed''
    (on-line, so I can't try them out myself).

    I've owned the Wowee and it's great. Only sold it as I prefer envelope filters. I've only heard clips of the EBS but didn't like what I heard enough to consider getting one!

    I haven't tried those wah/filters, but I do prefer the construction quality and features of the G-Lab compressor over the EBS one, so that would bias me toward taking a money gamble on the G-Lab.

    The G-Lab is pressure sensitive but also true bypass with silent switching - making it awesome for stepping on to accent single notes!

    I have the Wowee and I think it's awesome. I haven't used the EBS though.

    I had the g-lab but the range of the rocker was so narrow it felt I was going from setting A straight to setting B. Features were awesome though.

    Thank you all for the replies !!

    So I tried to contact the guy of the EBS Stanley Clarke Signature Bass Wah,
    but he hasn't responded yet.

    I think I'll try to contact the person of the G-Lab soon.

    Now, I also have the opportunity to buy a ''second handed'' EBS Bassiq triple envelope filter pedal.

    I have no experience with envelope filters, but I guess I'll have less control over the effect
    comparing it to a Wah pedal...(???)

    To start with:

    Sorry for my late reply !

    I'm surprised by the lot(s) of love for the Wowee.
    Unfortunately the Wowee is already sold.

    And, the guy of the EBS still hasn't responded.

    So, next time I'll see a G-lab Wowee (''second-handed'') for a good price
    (on-line),
    I'll have to act sooner.

    But once again, thank you all for your replies !!

    I've compared the Wowee and EBS Wah-One and in terms of function and build quality I preferred the Wowee but the one I got had a volume drop I couldn't live with. The EBS had an iffy bypass switch right out of the box and given I have had several hardware failures with other EBS products I have lost confidence in them. Sound wise I think I preferred the EBS, but only by a small margin. The answer to the comparison eventually turned out to be a Dunlop 105Q which also has a similar bypass function as the Wowee, just step on it to engage.
