Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah Pedal

The AW-3 is a highly sophisticated autowah, adding that little bit of wow factor to your performance without so much as flexing your ankle. The AW-3 boasts a number of wah tones you’ll recognize pulled from records over the years, as well as a unique humanizer effect to emulate vowel sounds.

In the connectivity department, the AW-3 boasts an expression pedal input (for traditional control of the wah using your foot) and a bass guitar input, since Boss know bassists want in on that funk as well.
