yeah, i have a boss aw-3 dynamic wah. its pretty sweet with the variations you can have on the sound and it sounds pretty good and everything, but i dont know, i just cant stand the slight volume drop and tone sucking when the wah is on. standard wahs are out of the question just because i said so, but if you know of any cool auto wahs, let me know about them. thanks.-tim

I tried the BOSS T-Wah and was actually relatively impressed.

EH q-tron plus, possibly with true bypass (newer models). it's the ultimate funk machine, an envelope filter with loop meant for crazy sounds!!!

I'm trying to fight my own entropy

Mutrons are the BEST auto-wahs/envelope filters.

But it all depends in what you are looking for in an envelope filter:

A Vintage Mutron III or a reissue Mutron III+ (HAS labs) are the best choice for versatility. They are great envelope filters, the vintage Mutron III is THE ultimate funk machine.
And I Think you could pick a reissue one for the price of an menatone mail bomb that guru is advertising. ;)

If you just want a basic auto-wah sound in a funk to reggae style than you can´t go wrong with the Mutron Micro V. Great and is pretty cheap for what they are.

For a lot less cash you can also try out a EH mini Q-Tron. Compact, sound good and they go cheap.

Thats my two cents, I hope it helps.

And good luck with your hunting.

Digitech Synth wah.

I'm not sure that this is the best auto-wah, but I have to say that it is easy to use and versatile. Besides auto-wah it has some envelope filter and synth sounds.


STÖRbÄ -even I don't know what it means..

Lovetone Meatball has to be.
