I have too much free time and was wondering if you could hook up a wah pedal or something like it to a microphone and get the same effect?

Dear Stoner Stone,
I have found in reading this post that you are lacking the intelligence of a normal person.
you need serious help, possibly involving a screwdriver, and a large piece of wood.
please, be deceased now.
thank you

sure you can, you can do anything to anything. thats what i base my lonely nights on.

it might not come out sounding just like you hope, but it will come out as something new. go for it.

Would be hard for me, as I feel the urge to make wah wah faces along to my pedal when I use it.

yes you can, i have done it. it isn't very great, it jsut makes it sound like you are going wah wah wah, seriously. you get the same effect by holding a note and opening your mouth wide and then almost closing it. might be why it is called the Wah pedal i believe.

Behold...the Arctopus are obviously music. I don't see how anyone could say they're not music compared to many modern and post-modern composers. That being said, I think B...tA are terrible.

Wah pedals are named onomatopoeicitly. It isn't a word, but I'm trying to say they are named Wah because thats the sound they make, the idea came from horn players using their plunger mutes to create a similar sound.

Or you could try a Talkbox, mastering it to give it that wah sound is very easy.

Yeah, you just need those converters that convert a guitar jack to a mic jack and vice versa

Layne Staley did that

The only time I've tried it ended up with just about no wah effect whatsoever, it was kinda wierd. Sort of like trying to run it through a fuzz, only... no fuzz, and vocals.
