Tarmogoyf's review"A great pedal at a great price"

Mooer Funky Monkey

This is a small pedal. If you do not like small pedals, then this will not be for you. Don't buy a pedal that you know in advance is small and then complain about it's size.

Even though these are small pedals they are not too difficult to dial in, unless you're inexperienced and/or have fat sausage fingers.

It would be nice if Mooer had put small white dots on the two smaller knobs, but that is easily rectified with a little paint.


I'm a power seller on eBay for vintage music equipment, especially pedals, and I've bought and sold literally thousands on them at this point. As such, I've had the opportunity to try out more rare, expensive, and obscure pedals than the average person ever will. I'm fairly adept at judging what is a good sounding pedal and what isn't or what is a good value for the money and what isn't.

Personally, if you're looking for a cheap auto wah and can find one of these used in the $40-$50USD range, then pick it up. Are there better and more expensive pedals that do the same thing? Sure. Of course. But don't ignore the Mooer Funky Monkey just because of it's size or price; it's a good pedal and I like it a lot.

My guitars:
3 Fender American Standards,
a 20th Anniversary 1974 Les Paul Custom,
a 1981 Les Paul Standard (Tim Shaws),
and a Rickenbacker 330.

My amps: A 1977 50w Marshall JMP MK.II,
a 1984 100w Marshall 2203 JCM 800,
a 1987 Marshall 2558 Silver Jubilee 2x12" combo,
a Mesa Rev. G Dual Racktifier,
a Mesa Strategy 500,
a Roland JC-40 Jazz Chorus,
a Vox AC15C1,
and a Peavey Bandit 65.

With all of that in mind, again, I think this pedal is a really good pedal for the price. To my ears, through my equipment, it sounds good and I like it.


Mooer pedals can certainly be hit or miss, but in this case I think they did very well with the Funky Monkey. I've owned this pedal for over 4 years now and I don't think that I'll ever sell it. It's not something I use a lot or on a regular basis, but when I need this specific sound it does it's job and it does it well. This is the only Funky Monkey that I have ever owned, as I usually don't deal with too many modern pedals as I do vintage, and I've never felt the need to sell it. It does what I need it to do and it was cheap, so that's a win/win in my book.

Mooer Funky Monkey
Effect Types: Auto Wah true bypass


foot small, but not that! the main knob rate is correct but for the rest 3 position selector tiny knobs and 2 "range" and "Q" unbearable set!
they are microscopic! very difficult to set if you're on stage

Well we still manage to set everything but its not great!


And here we come to the heart of the matter, because the sound is for me is the most important thing!

If like me you loved feeling any difference between guitar, wood, bolt-on neck set neck etc, if you are very picky about your sound does ESPECIALLY NOT buy this pedal!

I used: Guitars: Ibanez PGM 301 PGM 401, FRM 250 MF
Amps: Marshall Vintage Modern 2266 c, Laney VC 15

It completely changes the sound of the guitar and came up removes low for all loaded mid and trebble

In short, I will not explain its different modes of operation because it does not deserve!


I had a lot of different modulation pedals that I use the week, I really try to find him an interest but there are any!

this pedal can be playing with a Vigier 3000 euros or guitar auchan it will ring substantially similar

Pros: The size (for still assign a +)

Cons: it's synthetic which respects nothing instrument
microscopic knobs

the price is very low but your better save a little and buy a real pedal!
