If you're a player with an affinity for classic auto-wah sounds, but you prefer streamlined controls, you'll dig the Electro-Harmonix Micro Q-Tron. This stompbox is powered by an internal envelope follower, which analyzes the dynamics of your playing to determine the intensity of the wah effect. When you pick harder, you'll get a wider frequency sweep; when you pick more softly, you'll produce a subtler sound. And It's a breeze to dial in — a few twists of the Micro Q-Tron's three knobs is all that stands between you and all the funky, Garcia-style quack you can handle. The Micro Q-Tron features true-bypass switching, and it's housed in a rugged, road-ready die-cast chassis that's compact enough for even the most crowded of pedalboards. Players searching for an easy-to-use envelope filter pedal owe it to themselves to plug into the EHX Micro Q-Tron.
The full-sized Q-Tron pedal is a lot to digest — it's a bit intimidating. That's why Electro-Harmonix created the Micro Q-Tron. This compact stompbox is tailor-made for players who want to plug in and rip through a couple bars of "Estimated Prophet" without a ton of tweaking. The Micro Q-Tron includes a Drive control that sets your sensitivity and filter sweep range; a Q control that sets the filter's bandwidth from smooth to all-out funky; and selectable lowpass, band-pass, or highpass filters. At Music Experience, we've found that you can dial in this stompbox in a matter of minutes. The Micro Q-Tron is one of the easiest ways to achieve old-school auto-wah effects.
The EHX Micro Q-Tron is a smooth envelope filter with a funky wah-wah tone. The filter is controlled by its internal envelope follower, analyzing the volume of your notes and the dynamics of your playing to directly sweep the filter’s center or cutoff frequency. A stronger attack or louder note will produce a wider frequency sweep while softer playing produces more subtle effects. Use the Q control to make the effect more dramatic.
