Artec APW-7

Wah PedalThe company Artec is a relatively new star in the effects device scene and is characterized by solid quality and really interesting prices.

The APW-7 is a traditional wah, which is especially effective in the middle range, whereby the frequency range can be adjusted with a potentiometer.

Usual signs of wear at the potentiometer is no longer possible since Artec uses a special magnetic potentiometer.

With the "Wish" button, you can add resonances that produce new sounds (up to the whistle). With the Bass-Wah Selector, the frequency range is further reduced, so the pedal is also suitable for bass players. The APW-7 is a solid pedal with tradition, but also for experimenters.

  • Circuit with magnetic potentiometer thereby is totally silent and service-free operation is ensured
  • True bypass
  • Power supply optional: 409939 (not included)

Very noisy

thehomerecorder.com, 10.08.2013
Short summary: Cheap, but not worth the money.

I had mine only for a short period of time before I had to send it back for repair to Thomann. It went absolutely quiet from one day to the other. After I got it repaired under warranty, my experience remained the same: sturdy metal housing with a knob under the pedal that makes you feel 'god, i just broke it' every time you step on it. However, the biggest issue was not this, but the sound quality. This pedal is extremely noisy and changes your tone only on a very limited spectrum. Once you turn the whish knob to a higher range to try and squeeze out a more tailored wah sound, it produces this high, artificial hiss that you cannot get rid of.

3 out of 5 stars on bass

Lars4613, 14.02.2014
First of all: I use this pedal as a bass wah. It does the job quite well, if you do not want a very steep filter range. Thus said, the range in which it sounds good is very limited with bass. If you push the bass button you get back a lot of low end, but not all of it. The main reason why I still use this pedal is that I love how it sounds in front of my overdrive and fuzz pedals. The limited range is useful to have a good control over how my other pedals react to it.
Other downsides are that my pedal started to squeak after a year of usage and that the rubber feed are totally useless! These feed are only glued to the pedal and do not withstand the intended use of the pedal: stepping on it!

Thumps up for bassplayers on a budget, all others should look elsewhere!


Edit: Footswitch broke after 2,5 years of usage.
