    Hey, just wondering what would be the best pedal to get that late 60's/early 70's psychedelic wah sound. I just find most of the pedals I try sound...too dry or something.

    But for Bass without splitting your signal it could be too aggressive.
    He just made me a "parked Wah" (fixed at one part of the sweep) and it sounds great on Bass and Guitar.

    But I'm using an MXR Bass Wah for actual Wah Wah.
    Preserves low end quite well, the auto on/off is wonderful.
    It is heavy and bulky though.

    If you don't need an actual wah pedal and can handle having an envelope filter/auto wah - any Mu-Tron or Mu-Tron clone can get the most psychedelic wah soun that I have ever heard. Most of Bootsy's wah sounds come from a Mu-Tron.
