Ashdown Stuart Zender Funk Face VU Dynamic Filter Pedal Key Features

  • Dynamic Filter Pedal: The Funk Face VU is a dynamic filter pedal specifically designed for bass players. It's optimized to help you create funky and dynamic bass grooves similar to those heard in Jamiroquai's music.
  • Simple Controls: The pedal features a straightforward control layout with three rotary knobs and two footswitches. The 'Sensitivity' knob allows you to shape the effect's response, while the 'Output' knob controls the effect's intensity. With these controls, you can go from subtle filtering to a responsive "Funk Bass in your Face" Auto Wah, depending on your playing style and dynamics.
  • Valve Drive Distortion: The pedal includes an emulated 'Valve' drive distortion switch that can be engaged with your foot. This feature enriches the harmonics and adds a touch of natural distortion to your bass sound.
  • Footswitchable Wah: The Funk Face VU features a footswitchable Wah effect, allowing you to engage or disengage the filter effect with ease while playing.
  • Pre or Post-Wah: A strategically placed switch on the pedal lets you choose whether the valve overdrive is added before or after the Wah effect, providing additional tonal versatility.
  • True Bypass: The pedal incorporates genuine true bypass switching, ensuring that your input signal remains unaltered when the pedal is not in use.
  • Output Level Control: The Output knob also functions as a clean level boost when the Wah feature isn't in use. This allows you to raise your bass level in the mix when needed.
  • Power Requirements: The pedal operates on a 9V power supply (not included) with a minimum 45mA draw. The power supply should have a center pin negative configuration.
