Today I stumbled across an interesting deal that some of you funk players might be in to. We’re talking about the Rocktron 7 Deadly Sins Auto Wah. So an auto wah is a pedal that adds or cuts off certain frequencies automatically. A manual wah you would need to control via foot controller pedal (ala Crybaby, etc), but the auto-wah let’s you set it and forget it in a sense. This is particularly nice when it comes to those classic funk riffs quacking away.
Here is the official description of the Rocktron 7 Deadly Sins Auto Wah:
Control knobs for the VII Deadly Sins Auto Wah include MODE which controls the A.D.S.R. (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) response curve applied to the wah filter. Q SHAPE determines how wide you set the wah filter sweep. DEADLY SIN provides Trigger Threshold Detection for wah actuation.
With the VII Deadly Sins, you shape the wah you desire, you set the wah sweep you want, you determine the attack, decay, sustain and release responses you need. One click of the footswitch sends you to wah heaven with an auto wah that uses a minimum of real estate on your pedalboard, yet provides years of solid performance in a rugged chassis.
The VII Deadly Sins is sure to inspire your next composition and your stage performances. Wah effects are at the heart of so many great songs and solos, and Rocktron’s stomp box will be no exception.

Okay.. the deal. The Rocktron 7 Deadly Sins Auto Wah lists for $190 and is usually available for $130, but is currently on sale (Stupid Deal of the Day) for the low price of $49.99 and that’s 61% off! If you’re been waiting for an auto-wah to unleash some funk grooves… well, this might be your opportunity!
