I am looking for a funky/raggae type of sound. Which envelope filters should I consider or should I look into a different effect?

Q-Tron?

Definitely check out the Jaques Trinity it didn't mess with my quitar's tone nearly as much as some other auto-wahs/filters that I've tried.

For a simpler inexpensive envelope filter, try the tonefactor (or mojohand as its now called).
I had the Frostwave funk a duck and its an incredible filter, but expensive. Its built real well and needs a wallwart to operate.
I also had the Mooger fooger filter, but its also expensive,large and sucks alot of tone.

tried the emma and tonefactor - kept the tonefactor, more organic and richer sounding - I keep a nice comp after it (BJF) to restrain the beast somewhat.
LOVE it with reggae.

The EMMA, Maxon, and Guyatone FLIP FB-X Funky Box are good ones, so is the Tone Factor Analogue Filter 442, but to me the best I have played is the MXR Envelope Filter, it is very wet sounding.

+1 on the Emma - Bought that and stopped looking (unless you go for a Mutron III or something, but the Emma is just nice)

Pigtronix EP-1

ill tell you upfront that a lot of people have a problem with its size, but if real estate isnt an issue for you then id say this might eve be a better choice than a mutron. very similar jerry garcia type tone, and under 200 on ebay. also doubles as a phaser, although it isnt great

Lovetone Meatball can be fun.

But I do wish to 2nd the recommendation of the Frostwave Funk-a-Duck. Musical and tasty!


cheers,

I have a guyatone auto wah that's pretty cool. It's a cheap way of seeing if your into this sort of effect or not. I think I paid maybe $50 for it.

I have and like the simplicity, tone and size of the Micro Q-Tron. I've tried the Maxon AF9, EHX Dr. Q and Boss Auto Wah and prefer the Q-Tron.

If I were to step up, I might consider the latest version of the Q-Tron+.

Not a bad idea if you're not sure. I've had the mini-Dano and the Ibanez soundtank autowah. Later ran across an old Ibanez AF-201 that costed many times more. The AF-201 is richer, more organic has more quack and many different sounds. Neither unit though could be called "transparent" or true-bypass. After all the effect is a filter, meant to screw up your tone and change your sound a lot. /C
