    1- Any music gear with the word Rogue written on it should be approached with extreme caution, unless there is Alembic right next to it.
    2- Guitar pedals usually don't work too well with bass.
    3- 30 $ isn't even the price of a decent single effect by itself, way less a combo.
    4- A comma from time to time can't hurt. ;)
    5- 30 bucks is not so much so I guess you could give it a try. Don't be expecting too much though.

    proceed with caution for all the reasons listed above. BUT...it's $30 so if it ends up being some unbelievable "find" you can come back here and tell us all about it! :D
  4. I thought your dad had a wah wah pedal that was really expensive? Why not just use his?

    On musiciansfriend.com, Dunlop Cry Baby 105Q Bass Wah Pedal and the Morley PBA-2 Bass Wah Pedal are each $99.99. If you want a good wah for bass, that is the starting level. Yes, I said starting level. Anything cheaper is a copy of the Dunlop with cheaper components and workmanship.

    But, the cheap wah pedals do wah, and if that is what you want to experiment with and have fun with, go for it. The cheaper pedals are usually not smooth, not quiet, and shift the sound of your bass because of the loss of low frequencies.
