    I've had the pedal for a few months now, and I just can't dial it to where I want it. It will produce a lot of great sounds,but some of them are just unusable.
    Maybe its my other gear, but other pedals work fine?

    I'm using an SR506, into a Jeff Berlin combo. Any recommended settings for my guitar or amp to get this pedal hitting a nice auto-wah that isn't "pingy, or super low and bubbly?

    With all of the controls this pedal has you would think you could dial in any sound you want. It is a great pedal. I bought one when they were first released, sold it and bought another. It truly lives up to its name. I think you have to have the the sensitivity setup perfect before anything else will work. Any little adjustment yields a huge difference in tone. It is definitely a PITA To dial in but once you get what you want it makes it all worthwhile. Ymmv.

    Sensitivity first. Please explain. Q, sensitivity, and start seem to make the biggest difference. A lot of times, I can't get a good sound so I just dont use it.
    Forgive my ignorance, I'm learning
