Harry, I have a bootsy fuzz wah if you are interested. I am not a fan of the fuzz, but the wah is good to go.

Harry, I use a Dunlop sparingly, it does what I need when I need it. I find it necessary to find the desired sweet spot with the Q setting. I also found it can "open" up other effects.

I had one, found it very difficult to find the desired sweet spot with the Q setting. Never got more than a subtle effect out of it. I don't know, probably user error on my part, probably didn't give it long enough to figure it out before I sold it, maybe expected it to do more than it does, but was underwhelmed.

There are internal trimpots In the Dunlop 105Q you can tweek to get a wetter sound. Just nark them on one side before you move them so you can put them back to stock settings if you need to.
You can never have too much gear. There is always something you need and don't have. isn't GAS great?

That's likely to make you VERY unpopular with all the other effects.... [smilie=fun_84.gif]

Yes it would but if you do as i intended to post and mark them you can return them to factory settings if you want to.

It is super funky sounding, really it is more of a LPF with a treadle controlled cutoff freq. I've had one for almost ten years and I still use it and it still works great although they updated the bypass delay to be controllable so I am thinking about getting a newer one...
