DigiTech Bass Wah Envelope Filter (DigiTech - Bass Synth Wah)

By MGR/Billy, 19/10/2010
This pedal is metallic green. Very similar in size and build to a Boss pedal. This pedal is built like a tank. It's an envelope filter, it's an octave pedal, it's an auto wah pedal, it's a bird, it's a plane, ay yi yi you get the idea!

I bought this when I was in a messing around with effects phase. I paid $80 for it at my local music shop. I wanted a few simple, good sounding pedals to add to my rig.

I like that the unit is simple to use and there is a variety of sounds you can get in one pedal. Anything from Octave effects to Auto Wah to Synth and Sub Low effects.

The knobs are very very subtle. It takes some time to get used to it. You must really dial things in.

Built rock solid. It%27s been on my pedal board for a few years and shows no signs of stopping.

Bottom Line: If you are new to bass pedals this is a great one to start with. Take some time and learn all of what it does and how it does it.

Guyatone BR-2 (Guyatone - BR2 Bottom Wah Rocker)

By MGR/Billy, 13/03/2011
The BR-2 is a pedal made by Guyatone that stands for Bottom Wah Rocker. It essentially is an auto wah pedal made for the bass guitar.

This little monster has two knobs. From Left to Right: Threshold and Decay.

I bought this on Ebay for $50 shipped. I believe brand new in the box they go for $90. I went with this pedal because I had not heard of it before and liked the idea of trying out something new.

It is compact, easy to power and can offer some crazy sounds.

Well the size of the pedal comes with a price; the weight of two cable and the power adapter tip the pedal forward. I wish that they would have made it weight a hair more so this would not happen.

Another thing instead of a battery compartment you have to take the pedal completely apart. It doesn't unscrew, you have to flip the rubber sides off. It is do able just sort of a pain.

Besides the design of the battery compartment and the lack of weight, this pedal is a well built quality unit. There is a red LED that lets you know when the pedal is on of off.

An unpredictable, ticking time bomb! The Bottom Wah Rocker can get out of control. If that is what you like, this is for you. If you are looking for a subtle auto wah, I would suggest you should look elsewhere.

More than the Best Bass Wah! (Dunlop - 105Q Cry Baby Bass Wah)

By crankyrayhanky, 30/07/2012
Bass Wah from the wah professionals over at Dunlap. Analog pedal with basic guitar cable in and outs.

UTILIZATION

The sound is awesome right out of the box. No need for a manual, other than it is interesting to note the q frequencies and volume controls.

SOUND QUALITY

I mainly use my 5 string Ibanez Soundgear Bass, but have since found that pedal excels for electric guitar too! There is a Q setting that allows a huge variety of wah tones, from the deeper (and below) tones of the Jimi wah to the higher voiced (and above) tones of the Morley Bad Horsie. There is an adjustment for volume, so one can get a wah that even with the original signal or go anywhere from a gentle boost (my preferred) to an aggressive volume boost. I believe this pedal has a high pass in the circuitry, allowing the lower eq tones to go untouched while the mid and highs receive the wah. I'm not sure if there are any other wahs out there with this feature (?) I typicall detune my guitar anywhere from E down to drop Ab, so having this hipass is probably the reason i really love this pedal on guitar. I bought it for my bass, but eventually it surpassed my original Dunlap, Jimi Dunlap, and Morley Bad Horsie. It helps that this Dunlap has the auto on/off feature that was previously only on my Morley (Dunlap now has a few pedals like this). This auto on/off is a HUGE asset for playing live- I like the Dunlap Original and jimi, but how many times did I thin "Is this pedal engaged" and they proceed to toggle on and off...this hampers creativity and performance. I love the auto, the hi pass and the tone is Dunlap-awesome.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a must have for any bass player, it adds a great character and provides a cool "swimming sensation". I love using wah for just a few notes at a time (rather than lengthy passages), so the auto off is an invaluable characteristic. There is nothing to note that I liked least, this pedal has been my goto for guitar and bass for many years now. I toured hard with it locally, so I grabbed a second pedal and this one has held up admirably. For bass, there is no other choice. For guitar, I may look into a the Dunlap Q wah, as it seems to have similar features but built for guitar. That being said, the hi pass on the low frequencies is something I have bonded with- I don't like a wah that just sweeps over and takes over the whole tone with a dramatic impact...that's good for an occassional effect, but too much for full usage. The hi pass allows pure bass tone to remain. This pedal is nailed to my board. Best review I've made; I love this wah!
