Cry Baby Q Zone Fixed Wah

If you like that ‘cocked’ wah sound but don’t get on with wah pedals, then the Cry Baby Q Zone could be for you.

Instead of fiddling with a conventional wah’s rocking pedal, the Q Zone lets you directly dial in that ‘sweet spot’. It has a simple, three knob layout that control the volume, bandpass shape and frequency centre.

Personally, I think this is a really expensive way of getting a ‘Cocked Wah’ tone. I get that not everyone wants a wah pedal, but convenient or not, I don’t think it’s worth it. Then again, I love wah pedals and own over a dozen, so I’m probably not the target market for this type of pedal anyway.

RRP – USD 149.99

MXR Thump Bass Preamp

The new MXR Thump Bass Preamp is based on the classic Echoplex Preamp and has the same tone-sweetening effect on bass. It has treble and bass controls for you to cut or boost frequencies at 8 kHz and 4 Hz. A mid knob cuts or boosts the midrange as determined by the frequency knob, ranging between 250 Hz – 1 kHz.

Should be a useful tool for players looking to add more boost and that extra ‘oomph’ to their bass signal.

RRP – USD 129.99

    I made one of these way back in the early 90’s by rehousing an old crybaby into a regular stomp box. Wish I would have had money to patent the idea. 🙁
