stores never seem to carry bass wah pedals in stock (not much market, i'm sure) so i can't try before i buy. except yesterday, Guitar Center had a used bass wah (forget brand) so i gave it a shot. the effect was totally unsatisfactory - sounded like it created a copy of my signal and wah'd that sound, then sent both signals thru the amp. was pretty weak, no matter what i did with the pedal settings. i'm looking for a pedal that will carry the whole signal for the effect, something with a beefy bend to it. and something that doesn't flatten the sound out; when i hit this pedal i had to completely change the EQ to get my sound back. these may be dumb ?'s but <shrug> i don't know much about effects. i'm sure a few of you have some good suggestions.
