This pedal is a crybaby wah wah pedal made especially for bass. The difference between this pedal and regular pedals is that it only puts wah on the high and mid frequencies so that the low frequencies still come through clean. The reason this is so great is because as most bass players know, their job is to keep the backbone of the band, but if all of your sound is wah-ed then you get a real muddy and inconsistent tone. It features a volume knob so you can turn the level up or down depending on what the situation is. This comes in handy if you want to put some wah in your bass solo or lead. The best thing about this pedal for me, without a doubt, is that it automatically comes back up when pushed down. This way you don't have to use the toe-heel-toe rocking motion. Instead, you only really have to use your toe. The rubber grip on the top helps ensure that your feet will not slip off, and it does a great job.


The pedal is very simple to set up just plug in and play. It takes a little bit of testing to find the right volume that you want the wah level, but once you do, you never have to touch the knob again.


The sound of the 105Q is great. It has the same great tone that you would expect from a crybaby wah. This was my first wah pedal so I had to get used to what positions of the pedal make what sounds. Once you get the hang of this pedal you can control your sound like never before, such as using it to enhance harmonics.


This is by far my favorite pedal. Wah pedals are just all around fun to play. I have owned this pedal for two years now and have never had one single problem with it. Every now and then it needs a battery replacement. I use mine on my pedal board so I don't use the battery. I plan on keeping this pedal for a very long time and will not upgrade ever. If it does ever break down, I will definitely buy another just like it.
