    Will a wah pedal for guitar work for bass? I ask because I have the option of picking up a Boss FW-3 analog wah pedal, but I need to decide by thisafternoon (about 5-6 hours time), so I need an answer before then.

    If you guys can help, that'd be great.

    Can you try before you buy?

    No. It's on eBay.

    Some are made to, some aren't. Morley claims all of theirs go both ways, and I've used some successfully. Dunlops don't go both ways nearly as well in my experience.

    Did you get the FW-3?

    Nope. Didn't want to spend the money if there was a chance it wouldn't work.
