Artec APW-5

Wah PedalArtec is a relative new star in the effect pedal sky and is characterised by solid quality and very attractive prices.

The APW-5 is a traditional Wah, which is effective mainly in the mid-range, whereby the frequency range can be controlled with a potentiometer.

Usual wear and tear phenomena on the knob are excluded, since Artec uses a special magnetic potentiometer.

With the Bass-Wah Selector, the frequency range is shifted further downwards, so that woofers also benefit from an effective wah effect. Therefore the solid APW-5 pedal is traditionally also recommended for bass players.

  • Range control potentiometer with control of the wah wah range and the high-gain mids
  • On / Off LED
  • Can also be used as a bass wah (selector switch for extended frequency range)
  • Power supply via 9V power supply or battery (both optional)
  • True Bypass

Cheep and not worth it

04.03.2015
Sometimes you get what you pay for and sometimes you buy something cheap and don´t get what you pay for.

This is probably the worst music equipment I have ever bought, I would have returned it if I had stolen it.

It only worked on a very small part of the distance you can move it so it was extremely hard to control. Then it broke after few days of light use.

Thomann gets thumbs up for being quick sending me another one, perfect service.

Sadly the second one worked no better than the first and broke also after very little use.

Well made, but disappointing sound...

26.08.2014
I had high hopes for this, and I was very impressed until I actually used it. The filter sweep only really occurs in the middle 20% of the pedal.

From heel down until you get about 40% of the way through the pedal's travel there's very little in the way of change, but then it suddenly kicks in and sweeps until about 60% then little to no change from there to toe down.

It's a real shame because this thing is built like a tank, and has some really nice features for this price point. It's quite frustrating that they failed in the execution.
