A versatile pedal that combines wah-wah and envelope filter sounds into one box. The AW-3's four knobs certainly cover a lot of ground in terms of shaping everything from 60's psychedelia to smooth 70's funk. The Filter sounds are very musical in terms of responding to individual notes and nuances. If your looking for a Mutron vibe on a budget the AW-3 does a great job. It will take a bit of knob twiddling to find that sweet spot but the sonic payoff is worth it. Unfortunately the wah-esque settings were less impressive. It's basically a footless wah-wah with the rate knob simulating the constant motion of a pivoting manual wah. This fixed motion hardly leaves room for expressive soloing and most wah nuts will be better served by using the real deal. That said, this box is amazing for creating extra weird sounds, filtered stutters, and smooth rhytmic swells. Throw in your favorite distortion box and things get even crazier.

Boss is an outstanding company for guitar effects and most of their pedals are top notch even when you are in the DS1 OD1 range. but this pedal is not very useful because a wah should have some form of an expression pedal and not just a simple stomp for tone. it wasn't bad but it was difficult to get that humanized shift in sound without being able to use an expression pedal. stick to a Crybaby. The Hendrix is great. if you want more of a metal sound go for the Zakk Wylde or Kirk Hammett signature.

An autowah that doesn't disappoint

By LesDudis

from New Jersey

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

The AW-3 pedal is amazing! I try it out at my local Guitar Center every time I visit and it's so cool how it can make the vowel sounds with the humanizer. I prefer manual wah pedals but as an autowah, this pedal really gives you the power to create any wah sound you want, without having to rock your feet! It's great if the song calls for a constant wah.

Great Pedal

By Big Rocker777

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is a very good pedal. Although the wah can't be manually controlled (unless you get an expression pedal) it has many cool features. You can get tons of different vowel sounds and tones and you can even set a tempo for the pedal-allowing for faster tempos than can be created by using and expression pedal.

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

Of all the pedals made there is a line where quality and sound meet and the boss pedals started there buisness on that line. The sounds that the boss aw3 wah pedal makes, is the best wah pedal i've heard. And the quality and durability of this pedal really gives it a reasonable price. if your looking for a wah pedal stop and get this wah pedal. thanxs boss

Grea Pedal

By Lemon

from Islip NY

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

For a bassist who wants to get funky and who usally is short on money, this pedal is the way to go. It has some sick settings, and the sounds that come out are worthy of the greatest funk. For a guitarist, however, I would recommend a classic Cry Baby pedal, but for a bassist this is the wah pedal for you.

Cool effects

By Anonymous

from Yardley, PA

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is a pedal to be used sparingly, but it can make some great sounds. You have to spend some time with it, but there is a tremendous amount of flexibilty here. You can wah up, down, or "sharp," you can set it to wah with a tap tempo, or you can use the humanizer. That's a feature that allows you to select which vowel sound the wah starts and finishes with. I don't know how practical the humanizer is, but it's fun to play around with and there are some good combinations. You can also plug in an expression pedal an use it like a regular wah but I haven't tried that. This pedal should be placed in the front of your chain since it reponds to picking dynamics, which gives it a very expressive sound.

No Thanks Boss Wah...

By Eric

from Minnesota

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

This was the first pedal I bought, and later I realized how bad it is. If you are looking for a wah pedal, this is not it. Go with some that ACTUALLY has an EXPRESSION PEDAL! If you need constant wah for a song or something like that- this pedal takes the cake. But its probably not the route to go, when trying make good, funky music. The pedal has a couple cool wah's that you can edit and tweek but overall, I would say anything with an expression peal is better than this wah pedal.

Boss AW-3 Wah pedal

By hellraiserc13

from simi valley

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is the best out of all of the pedals for its price. Wah pedals enhances a normal solo lick into an epic song. The wah pedal is what Slash, the best guitarist ever(Guns N Roses, Velvet Revolver)uses as his secret weapon for solos and riffs.

Brilliant

By GrampaWahWah

from RI

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

I've tried many other wah pedals that are a simply click and this is definetly the best BOSS makes. If you want the best, go Dunlop Cry Baby, but this is really something. The vowel sounds are kinda lame, but work. The wah itself is shocking coming from BOSS, it flops the sound around real nice and doesn't skip beats. It works well for solos, but for parts of songs where you would quickly cut the wah effect, this does not impress.

Very Coool Wah!

By Scott A

from Chester, NJ

Comments about Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Guitar Effects Pedal:

After a 20 year layoff of playing I'm getting my gear together and experimenting with new equipment and effects. Having had some Boss pedals in the past I went with those again...so in addition to a Blues Driver, Digital Reverb, Delay and EQ I tried the AW-3 after hearing a local blues guy use one. I really like it! Once you dial it in to work with your own playing style and dynamics it does a great job of giving classic wah sounds and expressions without the need for wiggling your foot! Does a pretty good job with the voice box simulation as well. There are obviously some times when a true wah pedal would be better or more appropriate for the sake of control or specific sounds but overall I think this is a really great sounding and easy to use pedal.
