    Who uses one? Do you like them? What are some good ones? Etc.



    I played recently guitar in a band for a musical and needed a wah pedal for a couple parts. I borrowed a Vox wah from a friend and it did the job. I have never really liked ordinary wah pedals, but autowahs interest me more for some reason. I guess I like the idea of using picking dynamics to control the effect rather than a treadle. That, and occasional Zappa binges...



    Never owned one though, but the Maxon AF-9 sounds nice.

    That thing is sweet... I actually kind of want that. Looking forward to see what else gets suggested.

        I'm happy with my Boss Dynamic Wah. I use it for Jerry Garcia-style stuff. It doesn't really capture the classic Mutron sound, but it's a heck of a lot easier to use than the Mutron clone I had before (3Leaf Proton). It also has the option to use a regular (sine?) wave to control the wah, like a phaser or tremolo, only with the wah effect. That sounds kind of cool although I haven't actually used it in concert that way.
        Good deals with: AcheWater, Jon Hiller, meandthecity, Iamtehcure, murch33, deadllama, theweight, southpaw pete.

            I had an AF-9 I didn't find it all that awesome. It was good but I liked the original robotalk better. That said mooer released an auto wah which looks AF-9 based. I might give it go since I do want a small filter pedal

                I read somewhere that the tan Maxon/Ibanez autowah was based on the Mutron.

                    I thought PopIntoTheChemists (or whatever the hell it's called) demo was cool. I like how it wasn't so effecty. I have a tube zipper and it's a little crazy.

                        There's an Oz Noy video where he's playing through a Robotalk 2 that just sounds amazing, I'd strongly consider that alongside any of the Mutron II/EHX Q-Tron stuff.



                        Ive always wanted a BassBalls as well, killer little pedals. The sound is so nostalgic that comes from em.

                            I like the autowah on my zoom g3. I use it when we cover "nights on broadway" by the beegees. They didn't use one in the original, but it cheeses it up in a fun way.
