Sound — 9
I mostly use my Fender Deluxe Active P Bass Special and my Crate BT50 with this pedal. But it also sounds nice with a guitar. You can get a nice flea like sound with this pedal. It sounds like an auto wah should. it's exactly what I expected. Slapping can sound harsh and it sucks some bass out but with some EQ adjusting it can sound awesome. I don't notice any extra hum, noise or a volume drop with this pedal.
Overall Impression — 9
I play many styles of music and this pedal gets me the funky auto wah sound I was looking for. This is my first pedal. I've been playing almost a year, I had some extra money so I figured for $40 I couldn't go wrong with this pedal. Defiantly a good choice. If it were lost or stolen and I was on a budget I would replace this pedal. If not I would save and get a higher end auto wah. I love everything about this pedal. I haven't compared it to another auto wah but compared to Dunlop Crybaby (guitar) I like this better. You get about the same sound and you can spend more time playing bass (or guitar) instead using your foot.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This pedal is built like a tank. The battery lasts awhile as long as you unplug it when your finished. I would defiantly use this at a gig without a backup. You could probably run this over with a trunk and it would still work. The knobs are on tight and the footswitch is strong. It would take a lot to even scratch this thing. Just have some extra 9 volt batteries and your good to go.
Ease of Use — 9
This pedal is very easy to use and very easy to get a good sound out. It comes with a manual, battery and product registration card. The manual gives information about the controls; blend, sensitivity, range, footswitch, led indicator and jacks. I says what the pedal does, has examples of settings and talks about the warranty.
