  • Riddle Q Balls, anyone have/using one?

    I came across this EHX pedal called Riddle, its a Q wah, the balls reference is to the in built distortion I guess lol. I like the idea of being able to control the sweep using an expression pedal & with all the options on hand it would seem like a cool pedal to have around. I haven't checked the videos on it yet, gonna look some up now, the control available on it is quite nice.

    So has anyone got one of these on their board or has tried one, what are your thoughts on it?

    EDIT: Found a fun demo vid, my favorite part was between 1:34 to 1:53 lol. Never seen anyone live or online yet, using an acoustic the way this guy does for heavy sounds with a big muff(?). Good stuff. Not really my kinda pedal though, seems overly complex & geared more towards unusual sounding stuff I can't usually come up with ideas for.
    The Electro-Harmonix Riddle is a powerful and precise envelope filter fine-tuned for guitar frequency response.Sculpt your envelope to reveal a truly express...

    Never owned one. Never played one. Never heard one before this. Never will own one.

    Sounds like crap to me.

      Lol, nice design features & cool name though. This one is for guitars, they have separate one for bass, its called "Enigma" instead of riddle. Someone's a Batman fanatic there.

        Cool sounding little envelope filter . . . they're great for funky little riffs that you want to jam out to.
