AW-3 Dynamic Wah

Hereโ€™s what you need to know about the Wah Wah Pedal

That a pedal is called โ€œWah-Wahโ€ sounds weird, right? Yeah, the Boss AW-3 Dynamic is a Wah-Wah pedal. Before we tell you more about this pedal, letโ€™s check what a Wah-wah effect is.

Wah-wah pedals help to modulate the equalisation of your guitar signal. It does this by altering the frequency and tone of the signal, thereby making it sound like a human shouting “wah wah wah”.

These pedals alter the frequency of your guitar signal by modulating its resonance picks.


Why the BOSS AW-3 Dynamic is an excellent Wah Pedal.

The BOSS AW-3 Dynamic pedal is a unique pedal created by Boss Corporations’ famous guitar/ pedal company.

This pedal gives you a wide variety of “Auto-wah” vowel sounds. The intensity of these sounds depends entirely on your picking strength.ย 

Moreover, the BOSS AW-3 Dynamic pedal allows inputs from electric and bass guitars displaying its versatility. It provides you with five Auto-Wah modes to easily pick from.

Funk and fusion guitarists like Bootsy Collins, Guthrie Govan and Jerry Garcia have used this pedal to produce excellent effects in their music.

What to expect when you get this pedal

The BOSS AW-3 Dynamic Wah delivers a variety of Wah effect styles. We discovered it to be incredibly responsive to your playing and highly adaptable, functioning with electric and bass guitars.

The AW-3’s ‘humanizer’ function, which resembles natural vowel sounds, is a great feature. Also, it’s so unique and different from the standard wah. While testing it,ย  we had a lot of fun with it. Adjust the BOSS AW-3 to your preferred sound using tap tempo or an expression pedal, then funk away!

One beautiful thing is that there’s a 5-year warranty on this pedal. You can use our demo player to check out this pedal.
