    Working man's filter module

    As I have been trying to formulate a rig for recording (and hopefully performing!), I have always wanted some kind of filter sound for my guitar that doesn't sound like a wah. Wah is definitely one of those essential guitar effects, but for someone who wants to really break the rules and experiment the effect itself can be somewhat limiting. Secondly, it seems like a lot of companies try to give you solutions for non-wah filters for guitar that are only auto-wah type effects, contain insane amount of functionality, or cost a lot of money just to get a filter you can control at will.

    All I want is a controllable envelope filter for my guitar. That's it! I should need a complex pedal with tons of features (including the need for an expression pedal) just to have that ability. The 105Q, on the other hand, provides an envelope filter with auto-return and adjustable volume and peak control in a pretty idiot proof package. No need to dive through presets or meander through menus just to get a simple, controller filter; just a controllable, instance-based envelope filter in a wah enclosure when you want it.

    Whether you play bass, guitar, keys, vocals, an accordion, this is the most simple controllable, filter effect you can buy. Just try it out and disregard the name because this is not really a wah (it doesn't even have a frickin' inductor!). This is a working man's no frills analog filter that sounds great and will not break the bank.

    This Wah is amazing! I use it for my guitar, and love the aplications it allows. The tone is awesome, the depth is vast, basically anything you want. It doesn't work well with very high notes, but after playing with the settings, and adjusting technique it's doing just fine. I was never a fan of no bottom, "guitar" wah pedals. I would buy it again, unless I came up with the money and could justify the customshop 95 rack wah...

    Just what the doctor needed

    I have been waiting for this to be in my pedal board.
    And it's just what the doctor needed.

    Not a necessity but very nice to have

    Bass wah pedals are not as developed as they should be. I understand technical differences in being able to manipulate the sound of bass compared to the sound of guitar, but companies such as Dunlop and Mosley should really invest in development. Compared to the current bass wah pedals on the market though, this pedal shines brightest.
    For what this pedal is worth, it is still nice to have on the pedal-board for expression purposes. It is a solid design, movement activated, and the color makes it stand out. The wah on this pedal is subtle but if used right, it can easily add to the sound you wish to create.
    At first when you plug it in, you won't be "blown away" right off the bat. When I first used it, I did feel a little disappointed but I was determined to make sure it wasn't just me. I brought it from my practice rig to my performance rig and I felt much better about it when hearing it at a louder volume. I am keeping it and think it will service a good purpose.
    Message to the makers of bass wah pedals: don't keep the low end of the sound with a wah behind it. If I want to manipulate the sound with a wah pedal, I want to change the entire thing, not just the higher end. Do this, and I will be first in line for a new product.
