    I've tried several - EBS, G Lab, Dunlop, Ibanez (too big) and more - finally ended up with the 105Q. One requirement I have is auto on/off, I don't like the traditional bypass switch. My first choice would have been the G Lab Wowee Wah, but the one I got had a bad volume drop. My second choice was the 105Q, sounds good, easy to use. G Lab has a plate you can put under any wah to get the auto function.

    did you try the HELLBABE? lots of configration that let you get your sound and the most i like on it is that it doesnt have an on/off fisical switch like it very much and it has configuration for guitar and for bass cheap but very good well works very well for me

    Behringer is a kind of crap, sorry. I'd prefer Becherovka...

    haha i realy like people who love to show their gear stickers! if your guitar/bass etc dont have this logo on it its crap, well i advise to blind test gear not be psycologicaly affected by brands the brand syndrome make you spend a lot of money and some times dont get as good sound has other brands with less years in market, all great brands were "crap" in its begining now people kill to have and showoff theyre gear with a stiker of that brand. whats could be considered crap today can be your next show off in future. i dont go by brands generally, i test and dont get influenced by other i im a person i dont like to be brain formated/washed by society, i dont show off brand logos to feel big, i use what i like not what im indirectly induced to use. not calling for a fight, peace please ;) just trying to get people understand and dont be mindwashed, please be your self and use what you want not because if you use a bass or guitarr of big money you are important and a veryy good musician, and really improve your sound , than get your gear and show off your skills and musicality with gear that reallly fits your sound , not gear that feell your EGO! sorry my very bad english

    I choose my tools/toys on a case by case basis; there's crap and gems from almost all brands. I use a few Behringer items, all of their products aren't bad, especially considering price. Generally speaking there is better quality to be found out there though, at a price of course.

    I have not tried Behringer's wah pedal, so I have no idea how that one is.

    Yeah, but... Behringer is still crap.
     
  11. Behringer is budget, which means sometimes good or bad, but affordable. They've released gems and turds. I know because: I had a behringer PA speaker go bad, but I've also used a behringer mixer and synth pedal, both still work fine to date.

    I hate some higher end companies way more than behringer.

    I have a Behringer mixer, and I like the BDI-21, so they're not all bad! I didn't realise their wah was quoted as suitable for bass use, definitely worth a punt:

    Behringer: HELLBABE HB01

    I've got a Tech 21 'Killer Wail' that I bought in 2002 that is great on guitar; keyboard, and bass. They've been discontinued for quite some time, but worth it if you find one. Full range and very musical.

    If you want a simple, inexpensive, and very effective wah with great sweep range and good control, the 105q is a great way to go IMO. I hear really good things about the AMT bass wah. Its the little one.
     
  15. Rocktron made a wah called the Badcat that was pretty good. It was designed for both guitar and bass. I liked it , I don't know how much a new one runs cause I borrowed it from a friend of mine. But I'd buy one given the opportunity. I've also heard that the Morley Mark Tremonti signature wah is great for bass.

    Don't have a broad experience with bass wahs but I'm currently using the 105Q and have been very pleased with it. Good preservation of the lower end with adjustable volume gain (up to +20db) and adjustable frequency width focused primarily on the frequencies most prevalent for bass. The auto on/off is gravy.
