I know theres an ONLY Wah Thread, but its huge, and Im never in here anyway.
Could someone please give me a simple schematic for a bass wah pedal build? All Ive found is guitar wahs. BTW this is my first build so Im not very knowledgable about this stuff.
Thanks so much.

as far as my knowledge goes, the only difference between guitar wahs, and bass wahs, is the frequencies effected by the circuitry is set according to the instrument (lower frequencies for bass, etc)

Where exactly is the sweep cap? This is gonna be done from scratch, BTW.

Buy a Crybaby GCB-95 and switch out the sweep cap for a 0.068mF one.

Then you got a bass wah.


There is the prefix mistake again

Dosent matter really, if you read the rest of the thread the issue was explained.

Anyways pointless post on your part.

TS look at this

The red capcitor in the middle labelled as 0.022uF is the sweep cap. You just need to change that to 0.068uF cap or higher for a bass wah.

Thanks for all your input, but Im still a little confused, lol.

Thanks for your patience, heheh.

You don't have a wah enclosure. Chances are you won't be able to make one, so just pick up a second hand Crybaby and do some modding.
Simple.

Hey, a quick question from a pedal-building noob:

Would changing the sweep cap on any guitar pedal give me a bass pedal?
Could i be searching (easier to find) guitar pedal schematics, and building the pedal with the other sweep cap, thus turning out a bass pedal?

It works in some pedals, but a lot of pedals require further modding to
make it sound good when played with a bass.
