the manual

The Auto Wah 5 differs from the pedal type Wah. AW5 produces the Wah effect by changing the filter frequency in reaction to picking.


Our version of automatic wah is a little different than other touch or auto wahs: it has just a hint of distortion which adds some warmth to this great effect.

The sensitivity control can be adjusted to increase response to your playing.

Not just for wah effects, the AW5 can also be a more subtle manipulator of attack and tone. Great for guitarists or bassists, especially for bass players who want to create their own "synth-bass" sounds.
