    So the Boss PW-1 was a wah...PW-2 was a power driver...and now PW-3 is back to a wah. Lack of continuity is a little odd to me! haha

    lol. You're right. And the PW-10 was a modeler. The PWs have an identity crisis:D

    That slipped under my radar.
    I'll be checking one out.

    It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but I do like the size of it. I need to find some demos.

    I still have an Ibanez WD-7. Great wah if you're a tweaker but I have everything set at noon, and I can't stand the size of it. I do like how it's a rock on/off style wah like Morley's, but that's about all I like about it. But hey, I was 18 when I bought it, and having a "Weeping Demon" sounded cool.

    I'm curious how it behaves with fuzz pedals. No info regarding on the Boss site.

    This is definitely the wah pedal Batman would use.

    bumping this to see if anyones tried it?

    I'm curious if it's switchless- can't really tell in any of the pics and there's only one demo up on youtube. Looks like if there's a switch it's not the standard type used on crybabys. Anyone care to jump in? EDIT: never mind, it does have a switch.

    Still would love input from anyone who's tried it

    bumping again. Dear Boss- please use the PW3 format to make a volume/expression pedal. Volume when off, expression when activated (with the LED's lighting up).

    Bumping this up to see if there are any feedback and reviews from actual users on here? I may be in the market for another wah soon and I really like the footprint of this thing and I still trust the Boss build quality.

    I'm interested in this too. Sounds pretty good in the sweetwater demo.

    I played thru one at the Boss booth at SNAMM and can remember a few details.

    It does have an exceptional build quality and felt real sturdy. Rocking the treadle back and forth felt smooth, the sweep was fairly wide, not huge by any means.

    It makes a "wow" sound rather than the more vocal style Wah pedals that go "wah", so the effect may not be as pronounced as some prefer, including me and that's why I didn't pick one up.

    I never looked nor asked to see if it had any internal switches to change modes or the "Q", etc...I also don't recall the guts and how it is designed.

    I would try before I buy if you can.

    Alright, from this it kinda looks like a mini and there is still a question of how it plays with fuzz.

    Not into the tone. I would the convenient smaller size of the mini wah.
