    I have a moog low pass filter, and a Qtron+ so I'm familiar with good envelope filters. That being said, I have an Ibanez AW7 (from the tone-lok series) that I think is pretty sufficient. That's the one I bring to jam sessions, it's small, can be powered by a one spot, and sounds pretty dang good.

    For $135, the Carl Martin Classic Envelope Filter is a good find.

    boss t-wah is one of my favorites, and easy to dial in.

    Yep, I'm partial to the micro-tiny WR-2. Horrible tone~sucking buffering, but a bargain (IMO) at 60 bucks new. It's discontinued now, replaced by the WR-3, with an additional clean blend knob

    For a bit more, you might be able to find a used ElectroHarmonix Riddle Q:Balls. It's a huge clunker compared to the Guyatone, but a lot more versatile & has a built-in analog distortion circuit

    Mojo Hand FX (ToneFactor) Analogue Filter 442 is the real deal. Going used should be close to $100.

    Best ones out there (IMHO) are Q-Tron+ from EHX and the Super Fatman from WMD.

    But if you want a low-budget one, go for the Nano Dr.q or the Micro Q-Tron from EHX.
    (MXR also has a good auto-q though)

    I would go for this one though,cuz it's both good in price AND packs a lot of stuff in one small box!
    Check it out!

    It's a delay,a ring modulator AND an envelope filter :).

    Wilson Effects Envelope Phollower, new it costs $113 shipped, a great auto wah, especially for the money.

    I like the Micro Q-Tron too, costs even less ($84) but has a larger footprint.

    Per usual, I'm the only person on here suggesting the Line 6 Otto.... it does the super smooth Jerry mutron tones and can get extremely quacky too. Great filter for the money, EXTREMELY versatile!!!

    I like and own the micro q tron, however I have not played many...
    The only other one I have messed around with and might get at some point as I really enjoyed it is the Boss FT2.
