    Anyone know anything about these old German-made Wahs? I've never even seen one but I got curious about them because apparently Pete Cosey may have used one on his 70s Miles Davis work. Curious to know if anyone has used one or knows anything about the circuit. Even Google reveals little about them.

    Thanks

    Interesting, thank you, so what does it sound like? Any other more well known wahs you could compare it to?

    I should test it again, it's a few months ago now... I don't remember it as being very special :)

    I did a short test.

    What's most "different" compared to other wahs is the short range of movement, but a normal frequency sweep range (compared to my Colorsounds and some obscure wahs, I didn't use my Crybabies for a very long time now), so you can make very fast and deep sweeps. It sounded very good on my bass, so maybe I should use it more ;)

    The fuzz is a typical rough 60's type fuzz.
