    Black Ark

    I got this to replicate the envelope filter that was part of Lee Perry's custom MuTron bi-phase channel. Paired with a good phaser, the QTron easily replicates classic Black Ark sounds found in albums by The Heptones (Party Time) or Junior Murvin (Police & Thieves). It has some extremely funky tones and sounds incredible on recordings. Would be a great pedal for Parliamentary Funkadelic style rhythm or bass guitar.

    Pretty Sweet Pedal

    note: Im not that good of a guitarist.
    The Q Tron is a fun little stomp pedal. It creates some sweet auto-wah sounds, very funky at times, and if used slightly could really enhance the blues, or even some rock! I wont waste time explaining the features because you can read them on the product page. The multiple settings allow for some cool sounds, just becareful, because of the way filter sweeps work, if you have it on certain settings, it will peak out your nice device in the chain pretty quickly. That said, its durable, looks cool and is not noisy at all, its a pretty clean pedal.

    My only gripe was the price to performance ratio, however Im not really a guitarist so real guitarists might find this much more worth the money. Hence why I only took off one star, because its still an awesome sounding device.

    I also converted my Mic signal into TS inst-out and sent vocals through the q-tron. With the right settings you can get some super sweet funky, out-there vocal sounds.
