A Classic E-H Filter Pedal Gets Even Better!

The Electro-Harmonix Q-Tron+ envelope follower pedal takes a great design even further! In addition to the original Q-Tron's great features and sound, the Q-Tron+ gives you an effects loop that lets you put an additional effect between the Q-Tron+'s preamp and filter section without changing the envelope drive. An Attack Response switch has also been added, allowing you to choose between the classic fast response of the original Q-Tron and a slower, smoother attack. If you're looking for some ultra-cool, funky and active filtered tones, check out the Q-Tron+!

  • Effects loop

Vintage 70's funk tone for bass

The Q-Tron maintains the low end real nice. It has 4 frequency settings but only 2 are usable for bass. It has more of a subtle wah tone. I had the Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah for a long time. The Boss got annoying if you left it on too long, it also didn't hold the low end real well. The Q-Tron lets you tone down the "squawk" a little. It has a pleasant analog tone. My opinion is that auto-wah effects sounds better going through the amp than direct. But this pedal doesn't sound too bad direct. I live in an apartment so I have to practice with headphones. I put the Q-Tron before a Keeley compressor to manage squawk going through my headphones. Most of the envelope filters I heard online make your bass not sound like a bass anymore. But you really have to spend time playing with the settings to get a usable sound. Depending if the sweep is set up or down, you have to experiment with it for a while. I initially bought the standard Q-Tron (without the +.) I thought the only difference was that the Plus version had an FX loop. When I got it, I realized the standard version didn't have the Response setting. It was an easy exchange and I got the Plus version. The downside: It takes a 24-volt adapter so you can't hook it up to most pedal-power units that only supply 9, 12 or 18 volts. Also, I think it could of been downsized a little. Three of the knobs only have two positions you can set. So maybe they could have put left/right switches underneath the fully rotatable knobs. I had to cut the rubber feet off with a knife so it would mount properly onto the pedal board. Overall, it's not a bad pedal. Analog is the way to go on this effect.
