Auto Wah is crap imo. Normal wah gives you more control.

Depends, what gerne, usually if your rippin ass on your guitar, I usually focus on the lead or solo im playing so I dont have time to fool around with a pedal, If im pullin a blues or jazz type thing ill go for the pedal to get great affects! If you can multi-task and use a pedal and rip a solo like I can sometimes, more power to you and for for the Wah!

Does the auto wah sweep back and forth? If it does... maybe...... if it don't get the wah. Nevermind i would still get the wah anyways

The harder you attack, the more it "wahs"

autowahs are vary useful for certain sounds
#14
Wah, obviously.
more control.
Well unless you can't rock your foot and plan guitar at the same time, when Wah is definitely a better option

wow I'll say it again ....

Despite the name, an autowah is not designed to be a foot free wah. It is a filter, one that spices up your sound a bit by adding a bit of a sweep to each note. The effect is normally far more subtle then a wah pedal, and it has it's own specific place

so I say

get both

I prefer normal Wah pedals, because I have more control over them, and can focus on what sounds I want.
#23
you have got to be kidding me i want to kill auto wah it soundslike shit. Everytime you play a note it goes wah...thats just a little too gay sounding.
#26

What a dumb thread. An envelope filter (autowah) is completely different from a wah pedal and isn't even used for the same sound.
#28
Wah no question about it although Envelope filters sound really kool and make a great pedal board addition.

wah is good if you want control, but if you don't want more like a constant wah, just get the auto wah, so you don't get tired
