AW-3 Dynamic Wah

Wah pedals are a great, expressive way to add some new and unique tones to your playing, but it can be a lot to keep track of, especially if you're singing while you play.  Thanks to the AW-3 from Boss you can get both all your classic wah pedal tones and your funky auto-wah/envelope filter type sounds as well. 

Amongst a variety of modes you have tons of options for both dynamic and oscillating wah sounds.  You can choose from three tonal ranges for the wah sweep (Up, Down, and Sharp) in Dynamic mode to fine tune your sound.  You can also use the pedal in Tempo mode to have it automatically sweep the wah over time, complete with tap tempo.  Finally, the AW-3 brings the all-new Humanizer mode which manipulates your wah sound to mimic the sound of a human voice.  The specific vowel being spoken changes based on your pick attack. 

The AW-3 keeps its controls simple and easy to use so you can spend less time tweaking and more time wah-ing it up.  Decay sets how long the wah effect stays active after you pick, Sensitivity sets how hard you have to pick to engage the effect, and Manual helps you fine tune the center frequency of the wah's sweep.  In Humanizer mode the Manual and Sensitivity knobs change to let you switch the two vocal sounds around.  Finally, if you really like the flexibility of using a manually controlled wah as well as the utility of an auto-wah, the AW-3 is fully compatible with external expression pedals and controllers.  Boss also thought ahead and added a separate dedicated input for Bass so it'll work no matter what pitch range you're in.  If you're looking for an easy way to add some wah to your sound without changing much of how you play, the AW-3 is just what you need.  Come try one today and get funky!
