For adding character to your bass tones, check out the MXR Bass Auto Q. It'll instantly funkify your riffs with authentic Crybaby wah and add a lush shimmer to sustained notes and chords. Turn the simplest rhythm and lead lines into complex textural effects, and take your music into uncharted territory. 5 knobs give you infinite control of the Bass Auto Q: Range controls the frequency floor of the effect; Q modulates the intensity of the wah by adjusting the bandwidth of the filter from a broad, subtle curve to a bright, sharp peak; Blend controls the mix between the wah and shimmer effects; Decay controls the transition between wah and shimmer; Rate controls the speed of the shimmer, from tremble to shriek; and Volume controls the overall effect volume. A rugged footswitch lets you bypass or engage the effect, and graphics glow in the dark to make this pedal easy-to-read on an dark stage. Housed in a virtually indestructible zinc box and powered by a single 9V battery or optional Dunlop ECB-003 AC adapter.

Comments about MXR M-188 Bass Auto Q Auto Wah Pedal:
I play bass and my Q-Tron was a staple funk effect. But I recently upgraded my pedalboard to all Dunlop/MXR, so I took a gamble on the Bass Auto Q and am extremely pleased! It has all the analog syrup of my Q-Tron (except it only "wahs" in one direction), plus it has the cool Shimmer effect that can be blended in to give an oscillating fading out wah-wah effect at the end of sustained notes. Can't do that with a Q-Tron! There are other envelope filters that have more controls, but the MXR Bass Auto Q has the TONE and preserves the bottom end of my bass and does it with no noise or added hiss. If you want the funk, then check this one out!
