Wah

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by fenderbassabuse, Mar 29, 2004.


  1. I want a wah pedal for my bass, but I have no idea what to go for. I want something that I can step on and use, but it has to retain the charachter of my bass. I'm thinking about the morley, and the dunlop. Any one got one of these?
     
  2. i have a morley power wah ( the old one) and its pretty good. more aggresive sounding than the dunlops i guess.
     
  3. I can say many good things about the Boss PW-10, but you'd have to play one to really know.

    I have the Dunlop with the adjustable Q and I dig that thing, it's built like a tank and is a very versitile wah. I would try to go out and play both and see which one fits what you are looking for. Good Luck.

    What would you be using it for? It really depends on the kind of music you're playing. What's your equipment, etc.?

  7. I'm using a fender MIM jazz, an Ashdown mag250 w/ 1x15 and a Boss ODB-3. I'm into rock, metal, funk, all sorts really. Many thanks for all help.

    Are guitar wah pedals usually cheaper than bass wah pedals??? I'm thinking of getting a wah pedal, and if the guitar wah is cheaper, I'll just get that.

    Beware bassgod because a lot of guitar wah pedals will not acommodate the frequencies bass puts out. All the lows are rolled off with most guitar wah pedals and you are left with thin harsh tone.
