The Behringer Hellbabe Wah-Wah Pedal is a full-featured wah with extras more expensive pedals don't have. It starts with optical control that has no moving parts. This greatly reduces wear and tear, and thus extends the life of the pedal. It goes on to add a Boost function that provides an overdriven signal boost so you can really "bring the funk." The Q control gives you precise control over the filter shape, yielding vocal-type effects. Quality construction and precision electronics make the Hellbabe an excellent wah option at an affordable price. Optical Mechanism Mechanical pots wear out a little every time you use them. With the Hellbabe's optical control, degradation of the working parts is completely eliminated. Adjustable Frequency Range The frequency range of the Hellbabe can be varied, allowing use with a bass. Boost Circuit The adjustable boost circuit adds overdrive to your wah, giving the pedal a much more dynamic, excited sound. Q Control The Hellbabe's Q control adjusts the shape of the wah filter's peak. With it, you can dial in a broad, subtle wah or the "wakka wakka" sound exemplified by the theme from Shaft, or anything in between
It's a really good pedal, and because it comes back and turns off by itself you can trick with it
The housing is surprisingly sturdy in comparison with other Behringer pedals: this wah is definitely well built and reliable. But the sound just falls short of what you expect: there is practically no sweep at all, so you can't get low "oow"s and high "aah"s on the same setting. Still, this pedal is very reasonable for its price.
Not a great wah sound (which doesn't make it necessarily bad), but a really great value. It is a nicely built pedal and I ended up using it very little as a wah pedal and a whole lot as an expression pedal.
Note this is the only wah I've used extensively. It can be set in whatever way I want. I like how simple it is. Having a switchless wah is the only way to go in my book. The leds make it easier to use as well. I'd buy it again.
Is a pedal that simulates the sound of the Dunlop DB-01 Dimebag Cry Baby From Hell, the Dimebag Darell's signature wah pedal. The settings found on the internet for this pedal can also be used for the behringer pedal.
This pedal is just like a Dunlop Cry-Baby, except it has some extra features. The boost is amazing for solos and it has fine tuning and a sweep adjustment knob. It is also priced cheaper than other Wahs.
Very good pedal! Sound quality is good, and I don't notice any colouring of the tone when it's off. I use it in the middle of two Boss pedals, so, it gets well buffered from input and output stages. I don't know if that counts...
You actualy get a lot for your money! Fully customable 535Q-like (or should I say, the DB-01?) pedal, with added optical control (for those, like me, who hate to engage a wah pedal in the toe-down position). The construction quality isn't amazing, though. I guess that comes with the price tag... Mine in particular had a rocking "side-to-side" issue with the pedal itself (the part where you actually put your foot on and move back and forth). I found that sometimes it didn't disengage when I removed the foot. But that was something very easily fixed by fitting a pressure washer on the side.
Summing up, it is a very good pedal! Give it a try, you might be surprised!
