Electro Harmonix Nano Doctor Q

Envelope filterThe legendary effect of the old Electro Harmonix Qtron is now generally known as Auto-Wah and had its gory days during the 70's, but even today you can still hear this very noticeable sound. The Nano Doctor Q comes in small package and, like his father, is very suitable for making a funky rhythm guitar even more eye-catching and groovy. With the range knob, you have different sound variants available; With the bass switch, the effect can be directed into lower regions - Doc Q will be a wonderful ear catcher for the bass solo as well!

interesting little box with some interesting little features

Graham K., 28.05.2013
the EHX Doctor Q is an envelope follower, it's packaged inside a small but solid cast case, with a range knob, status light, bass switch and foot button, having the range at a minimum doesn't give you much of an effect, at 9 oclock you start to really pick it up (this is also my preferred setting, which changes the whole tone of the my bass guitar, at 12 oclock you get more tonal change but more envelope punch through and at 3 there's even punch (sounds like a like something cutting through the air). maxed out its quite an unusual sounding effect making your bass guitar sound extremely jazzy. it seems to boost the mid's and highs the most, opening it up to a classy sound.
flicking the bass switch turns scoops out all the bass on my box, making a bass guitar sound more like a regular guitar, twisting the envelope knob clockwise will result in loosing more and more actual guitar sound until your left with pure effect coming out of the box.
as a stand alone unit the Dr Q is an impressive and dynamic box with a considerable amount of tweak ability. for guitarists and bass players who want a unique sounding envelope, this could be right up your street.

A rudimentary Doctor Q

aDore, 16.08.2017
It is a rudimentary and basic Doctor Q. I used it very little and then I sold it. I'm not a fan of EHX devices...
