This is a super organic sounding envelope pedal. If you want something to replace a wah wah, I would look elsewhere. The Boss auto-wah is great for that. If you want funky 70's guitar tone, or that Jerry Garcia lead thing, this is your pedal. Like all of Keeley's stuff, the quality is top notch, and it comes through in the tone. Take time to learn how to integrate it into your rig, and you will really love this thing.
