Effects Pedal – A Review of Gig-fx SubWah Pedal for Bass… Bass Musician Magazine takes a closer look at the bass pedal, the Gig-fx SubWah Pedal.
In our video product review, we examine this effects pedal that Bootsy Collins protege, Theron Brison, was working on in the developmental stages before his untimely passing in 2011.
The Gig-fx SubWah Pedal is a highly versatile, all-analog SUB-WAH, which has four onboard settings via a four-position selector switch.
Let’s take a closer look…
And some more information on the SubWah Pedal directly from Gig-fx:
Most Wah pedals lose the low end of your guitar signal. They are limited by the inductor (filter) which has a relatively narrow bandpass (frequency range). Gig-fx employs a unique filter circuit with a wider range in order to enable the pedal to sweep from a low, funky bass response to a crisp high end without losing any of the famous mid tones that Wah pedals can provide. This wider range gives the pedal a much more expressive ping, quack and talk capability and also ensures that none of the vital low end is lost when the Wah is engaged. The SUB-WAH can respond all the way down to below low B making it one of the few Wah pedals with a such a powerful and expressive sweep.
When we designed the SUB-WAH, we thought it would be an easy off-shoot from the famous MEGA-WAH. We were wrong. Two years of hard work later, and after intense product testing and feedback from some of the most respected bass players out there, we ended up with the funkiest and most melodic Wah and Envelope filter ever produced for bass players, bar none. The end result is endorsed by the King of Funk, James Brown’s Bass player extraordinaire, Bootsy Collins, Theeramjam, Luis Espaillat, Mike McClean and many others.
