Behringer Hellbabe HB01 Optical Wah Wah Pedal Standard

Sorry, this item is not available.

Get everything from œold-school wah to the most up-to-date sounds, all in one mesmerizing effects pedal.

The Behringer Hellbabe HB01 redefines what a wah pedal can do for your sound. With its optical design and extensive tone-shaping controls, this pedal provides exceptional flexibility for dialing in your ideal wah tones. The HB01 lets you sweep the frequency range lower than most wahs, all the way down to 250Hz to complement bass and extended range guitars. A Fine control allows you to customize the toe-down frequency for honing in on the perfect high-end sweep. You can even crank in a volume boost up to +15dB to make your guitar cut through the mix when you engage the pedal. The HB01 has a Q control for fine-tuning the width of the frequency filter from a subtle, vocal-like sound to a more resonant peak. This pedal has no pots or switches to wear out over time.

Sculpt Your Tone With Adjustable Frequency Sweep Range

The Hellbabe HB01 gives you exceptional control over the frequency range of the wah sweep. A heel-down Range control lets you adjust the low end of the sweep from 440Hz down to 250Hz to complement the register of your instrument. For instance, extend the low end for a throaty sweep on bass or tighten it for a focused mid-range accent on guitar. The HB01 also features a Fine control to customize the toe-down frequency up to 2.2kHz so you can hone in on the perfect high-end bite. Dial back the Fine control for a smooth, rounded tone or crank it for a piercing treble peak.

Boost Your Volume Up to +15dB

With its adjustable volume boost, the Hellbabe HB01 ensures your guitar will cut through the mix when you switch on the pedal. The boost control lets you kick your volume up by as much as 15dB for increased presence and impact. Ultra-bright LEDs indicate when the pedal is active and when the volume boost is engaged so you can be confident your effects are applied. The volume boost makes the HB01 ideal for punchy lead tones that demand attention.

Shape Your Tone Precisely With the Q Control

The Hellbabe's Q control allows you to fine-tune the width of the wah filter, from a subtle, nuanced sweep to a resonant peak. Crank the Q knob clockwise for a narrower bandpass with an intense vowel-like tone. Roll it back for a gentle, wider filter sweep. Find the sweet spot in between for articulate articulation. The Q control makes it easy to zone in on the precise filter shaping that fits your guitar and amplifier setup.

Built for Consistent Performance

Using an optical design instead of mechanical pots and switches, the Hellbabe HB01 delivers smooth, consistent operation over time. The optical sensors have no contacts to wear out or get scratchy. The pedal uses a spring-back mechanism with adjustable resistance so you can customize the pedal feel. Power up the HB01 with a 9V battery or optional power supply and rely on its rugged metal construction to endure pedalboard use and transport. Unleash new tones with the Behringer Hellbabe HB01 optical wah pedal.
