Bass Wah Pedal?

Hey guys,
Ive been wanting to buy a bass wah pedal but dont know which one I should go for.
I have three in my mind:
1. Dunlop Bass Wah
2. Ibanez Weeping Demon
3. Morley Bass Wah[/B]
Can you please list some pro's and con's and which one i should buy
I play blues, jazz, funk, rock (pretty much everything)

The thing is i cant try them out cause they are unavailable in my country so i have to order it online

I know that Dunlop Bass Wah (the 105Q) has some freq. controles, and that "Q" control that seems to be regulating the effect intensity. Never played through any of those, tho, can't help you with that.

Make sure you buy a wah that's specially designed for bass frequencies, because guitar wahs have a low cut off frequency.

I recently upgraded to the Dunlop 105Q. Can definitely recommend it. With most other wah pedals as soon as you hit them in a band context the mix immediately sounds thin, even if they're designed for bass. The 105Q only affects frequencies above ~100Hz and leaves everything below intact. So even when you hit the pedal, the lowest of the low frequencies are still there in the mix. Makes it a lot more usable in a band. Add to that the pressure-sensor so you don't have to worry about leaping on the damn thing to turn it on or accidentally leaving it on, and the volume/Q controls, it's pretty much perfect... I honestly can't think of anything they could do to improve this pedal.

I recently used a Morley Classic Wah for the guitar on my Hagstrom. Performed well, even on low D. If you look at the Morley site you'll find that most of their guitar wah's are also suited to bass as well.
