The Boss AW-3 is a Dynamic Wah pedal by both name and nature, enabling you to create and develop a wide range of classic wah sounds with some new and innovative design features. The AW-3 pedal can be used with both electric and bass guitars, and it also gives you the option of plugging in an external expression pedal to control your wah effects.
The AW-3 features four main control dials as well as a footswitch. Controls include Decay, Manual, Sensitivity and Mode, and the controls for Manual and Sensitivity are what give you that vocal effect thanks to the new Humanizer mode. The Humanizer mode gives you vowel, voice-type sounds with two-syllable effects. This opens up a wide variety of effects and tones for your bass or guitar.
You can choose from standard wah effects (up-and-down), or a Tempo mode as well as a Sharp mode that sounds like a synth. There is also a specific jack to plug in an external expression pedal if you wish, allowing you to control the wah effects with your foot. You can select from two Tempo modes for either pedal control or a fixed rate in Manual mode.
The AW-3 can be used with a bass guitar as it is designed with a dedicated Bass Input for direct, accurate processing.
Create a whole range of "talking", human-esque simulated sounds with the Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah pedal.
