: Any comments? personal exp.? reasons it is good? reasons it stinks? (aside from the questionable idea of using it in the first place). I am thinking about adding it to the tool box. -B
Have you been playing long? I bought one about 2 months ago. They sound really good. The casing is VERY durable, and the adjustable Q kix ass. If you like the wah sound, and you have enough use for one, then I would recommend this one over any other. I have heard that many of the other brand of bass wahs don't really work so well on the low end notes (open E string - open A), but the JD bass wah sounds very nice on the low end notes. It has a really consistent sound (ie noticable on all notes with Q turned up, subtle on all notes with Q turned down). Unfortunately, I don't play a great deal of music that allows me to use the bass wah, but I would use it heaps if I had the chance. I think it is a really good buy.
To be honest, the thing I noticed is that you don't need to be a really good player to use one. I started playing it, and it sounded pretty good (considering my lack of skill). However, players that have heaps of experience and skill (NOT me) can make it sounds REALLY good.
Yeah, if you have the use for it, and can afford it (I don't know how much they cost where you are. I'm in Australia-kinda expensive here) get one for sure.
