  1. Alright guys: here it is. I'm finally getting an envelope filter to supercharge the funk, and I've narrowed it down to three. Knowing that up here in Ithaca I have no chance of trying any of these pedals, I've decided to let TB decided which one was the best choice. They all hover in a similar price bracket.

    The Contenders for the 2005 Envelope Filter Category are:

    1. The Moog MF-101
    2. The Chunk Systems Agent 00 Funk
    3. The Pigtronix EP-1

    I'm open to other suggestions, although I'll be honest in saying I'll probably ignore them unless they are extremely well justified.

    I've never tried the 00Funk but I would like to test drive the Mark II. The Moog does not have a true bypass - don't know if you care or not. I love my EP-1 + it's a phaser too.

    If you get the moog, you need a loooper :)

    I did like the Pigtronix - I think i might buy one.

    I can't give an opinion.
    I've never tried any of these.
    I guess it means there really rare. :)
    Hunting for the ultimate filter, I'd go with a good old Mu-Tron III.
  5. Well, I bought an EP-1 off of pedalgeeks. I'll let everyone know what I think when it gets here in a couple of days.

    I just received my EP-1 today. I have only played with it for a few minutes, but there is a lot in this pedal. I really like the filter so far, though I have no real use for the phaser section. Quite squelchy and adjustable.

    I wasn't crazy about the Chunk, though it was the older model that I tried. Seemed to lose some bottom and also not that deep, rather, not able to get that pronounced filter sound. It was "squelchy" just not as much as I would like.

    I tried the Moogerfooger years ago. Don't really remember much about it except that I didn't like it enough to buy it.

    Hope this helps.
