    change the input capacitor to a bigger value e.g.:change the 0.01µf cap near the in-cable to a 0.068µF and done you are!

  5. this is why i love my dunlop 535q wah that i originally got for playing guitar, I've never thought to buy a seperate bass wah because its overall control lets you dial in a setting that is well equipt for the bottom end of a bass guitar...though it does have alot of treble to it once you press it all the way down, but thats sort of what i go for in a wah pedal...i use wah more for transitions and more of a phasing type effect when i want that funked out sound..well...thats what a envelope filter is for.
