Awesome Auto Wah/ Envelope Filter! This pedal is the second generation of the original Boss T Wah and is far better then the newer AW-3 Dynamic wah. Most people say this pedal is great for funk which it does very well. On the other hand, coming from a blues and classic rock player, this pedal is very simple to use and has a older analog sound that I much prefer as opposed to the AW-3's digital sound. No noise or interference problems for me. I do notice a very slight volume drop when engaged but not enough to bother me. This isn't a wah wah pedal replacement as it doesn't quite have that full lush crybaby or clyde wah tone. It does however make a great ambient wah when holding chords for soft playing and makes a killer fixed wah tone kinda like how Robin Trower uses the Fulltone WahFull as a wah on a preset sweep. This pedal is makes a great addition to my wah pedal collection and like they say "its built like a tank!"
This pedal is not made anymore...the Japan one is the one to get. It is more lively. But the Taiwan version is not that bad. Better then Behringer versions. Will do a good job at intimating the wah sound..if you set things just right it almost sounds like your still using a foot to work it.
Another nice thing about it is you can set it to stay in one range and just work the tone and get it to sound very close like Hendrix or Robin Trower's lead work. Hendrix would just leave it in the middle or lower or even turn the pot inside his wah's but Trower was using a special custom piece that Fultone made just for him...but this Boss will get you in those ball fields.
And the funk...o yea baby...this thing can funk out, with perfect sweeps that dont miss a stroke,like your foot could do every now and then. You can get nice deep sweeps or high ones and anything in between. You can set the speed too.
It is a decent piece...but, The one to really get is the Show White, but at$300 ? crazy. But these boss Auto wahs are very good...not the 2nd version with that human voice, it's crap...get the first generation ones made in Japan...but the Taiwan version will do fine.
