Looking for input on a good wah for the bass,
I like my old Morley
I'm GAS-free for a wah thanks to my Wilson Effects Bass Q Wah (12-position, vintage spec).
Id love to try a wilson. Thats one of the ones ive never tried.
What about teh digitech expression factory?
I have the Dunlop Cry Baby Bass. Love it and won't get rid of it.
There's also Chicago Iron Tycobrahe.
Don't forget the Ibanez Weeping Demon and Fulltone Clyde Deluxe!
it does its job, i do mine.....wah....la XDDDD
Going to throw two new ones in at you!
Dunlops Zakk Wylde wah sounds great on bass. Really growly and throaty. Very cool (IMHO)
I also really like the Budda Bud Wah.
When I got my wah I knew I liked them but wasn't sure about all the different kinds and such, so I just went with a Crybaby. Fun to play around with at first, but after I learned more what I was looking for, it just didn't do it anymore.
+1 for the Budda Bud Wah. That being said, I'm more partial to envelope filters.
Musician Sound Design Earth Quake Bass Wah, pricey but fantastic!
never heard the budda get good reviews on here. i might have to try one of those out.
morley dual bass
vintage king vox wah
and none of them have sounded good IMO. i want a vocal quality, but not too bassy like the "bass wahs" where it's just a flood of sub frequencies.
I recently helped a friend of mine modify his 105q. We opened it up and it was mostly surface mount parts except two of the larger electrolytic capacitors. We swapped them out for some nice japanese rubycons of the same value and my friend manually set the mechanical throw range. It sounds amazing now. I'm thinking about getting one for myself now, though I've already got plenty of filters. It's not an expensive or difficult tweek.
Rocktron "black cat" with onboard distortion and moan effect is pretty good as well.
I recommend going to your local shop and trying out all of their wahs. Buy the one you like best. If your like me and don't have that option, get the Ibanez Weeping Demon. It is very versatile, and sounds quite good IMO
When I get my tax refund I plan to get a Wilson Q Wah 6 position vintage spec at minimum, but may end up pulling the trigger for the 12 position for a little extra scratch.
That's exactly what I did. It's in the mail, and should be arriving in 10 days or so . Seems to be very adjustable, got a nice option for using the footswitch or activating automatically, and it does look pretty wicked, to boot.
