Ever run an electric guitar through a bass wah pedal?

I love this combo - makes me wonder if Adam Jones uses it for Tool songs. It's got a real similar sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=IP0X-vnMcjo
Using a Dunlop 105Q - highly recommend this thing. It's kind of weird to say, but I actually prefer playing with this wah pedal with my guitar as opposed to my bass!

Never tried it but I recall the guys from Mastodon and HIM used bass wahs.

Can't see any reason why not if it works for your tone, I often find wah too "peaky" so actually might give this a shot.

I love that sound on those lower notes.

They should rename that 'Cry Baby BASS' pedal to the 'Growl Baby' ;)

Nice, bit more subtle than a regular wah, really growls too.
