This unit from Boss had some decent features but overall didn't pan out to be that great. they only made it for a short period of time and the idea of it caught on to some people, but I think most people really want the action of a real wah wah pedal.

The RATE knob controls the amount of modulation. Turn off modulation by turning the RATE knob to min. The DEPTH knob sets the range of the modulation effect. In the min position, modulation will be off and the wah intensity will be controlled by the picking strength. The MANUAL knob adjusts the frequency where the modulation Wah effect kicks in and the SENS control sets the sensitivity of the wah. High sensitivity means that a wah effect is produced with soft playing.

There are no known changes between AW-2s made 1991 to AW-2s made at the end of its production span in 1999.

SOUND QUALITY

The tone of the pedal was sort of difficult to fine tune as to which maybe people were turned off to this pedal. The tone can shift and shift without explanation and t o which people would get frustrated as to why the pedal didn't stay balanced with the control it was left on.

You can use this with any guitar or amp. The use of other gear isn't important but rather the inconsistency of how the pedal sounded when engaged. When you engaged the pedal it has a wah variation but there was a trick to getting it to smooth out in the rhythm that that you are playing.

OVERALL OPINION

These pedals have been discontined for some time now. I think that last ones on the market were around 1999. They have now been replaced with the Boss AW-3 as most pedals from Boss just simply go up a number.

I would recommend the Zvex auto wah or the Boss Aw-3 before purchasing this pedal. You may get quickly irritated with how this thing reacts when engaged.
