    Dunlop 105Q. Sounds the best to me and I've been checking them all out.

    Check out Wilson Effects. They have tons of great wahs and their "Wilson Wah" is optimized for bass and even comes with 12 Q settings. Highly recommended!

    I'm still looking for "the one" - I noodle a bit with a 105q and the DOD FX17 - but neither have blown me away.

    I have only owned the crybaby bass wah from Dunlop but I like it a lot. Good quack with fuzz before, good growlish tone with overdrive behind.

    Yeah, I just ordered one. I missed the delivery today, so it'll be here tomorrow. I do own a 105Q, which I thought was awesome, until I heard the Sonuus...now I'm $350 poorer...

    For a more economical option you can't go wrong with a Dunlop 105Q. Personally I use the wah or filter on my EHX H.O.G. and/or the synth wah on the BSY-600 Bass Synth (both are controlled with a Boss FV-500H as an expression pedal)

    I'll always take the chance to promote the Morley Power Wah. I prefer the old telray types. The have an enormous sweep, clean optical operation, and an incredibly forceful wah push without the honky quack a lot of classic and standard pedals give.

    I've been messing around with the new digitech bass whammy. Not a classic wah sound but the dive bomb wah/bass drop rattles windows

    I've only one I ever had that I used for a bass was Morely, but this was back when the only wah pedal in the catalog that even mentioned bass was the Morley. 92-93. I used on a hand full of songs and it was the only pedal I had from back then that still works, though I do not use it any longer. I don't know if the quality has gone down any in all these years but back then it was as solid a pedal as you could ask for, better than most actually as far as the build and craftsmanship.

    How does the bass sound through the Black Cat Moan and the Sonuus Wahoo? Both look like they offer awesome tones!

    I use a Dunlop 535Q. It's not for bass per se, but it's great on bass.
