This morning I thought I’d go into auto wahs. Not sure why, but that’s where I ended up… the MXR M-188 Bass Auto Q Wah. Here we have a sweet auto wah for bass for insta-funk-tones. Unit has five knobbies – Range, Volume, Decay, Q, Blend and Rate. I sounds like you can get a wide variety of funk sounds with this unit. Here is the official description:
For adding character to your bass tones, check out the MXR Bass Auto Q. It’ll instantly funkify your riffs with authentic Crybaby wah and add a lush shimmer to sustained notes and chords. Turn the simplest rhythm and lead lines into complex textural effects, and take your music into uncharted territory. 5 knobs give you infinite control of the Bass Auto Q: Range controls the frequency floor of the effect; Q modulates the intensity of the wah by adjusting the bandwidth of the filter from a broad, subtle curve to a bright, sharp peak; Blend controls the mix between the wah and shimmer effects; Decay controls the transition between wah and shimmer; Rate controls the speed of the shimmer, from tremble to shriek; and Volume controls the overall effect volume. A rugged footswitch lets you bypass or engage the effect, and graphics glow in the dark to make this pedal easy-to-read on an dark stage. Housed in a virtually indestructible zinc box and powered by a single 9V battery or optional Dunlop ECB-003 AC adapter.
