    Wah-ing with the tone control...

    Has anyone else tried this? I've been messing around with it a lot recently, and even though I'm not a wah guy (had a Morley Pro and ended up giving it to my brother as I never used it), I really like the wierd synthy quality it has, especially with distorted sounds.

    Anyone else try it?

    Carl Verheyen did it at a masterclass I saw him at a week ago. It looked insane. :|

    I guess sensitive pots, a lot of drive and a Strat-style 5 way selector with well-balanced pickups so the jumps between tones aren't too much would all help.

    It won't be exactly the same as a wah pedal, but it's worth playing with.
