Description du produit
SOUL PRESS is a micro three-in-one pedal for guitarists. In one mode it is a great sounding Wah Wah pedal with a distinctive wah-character inspired by the original Dunlop CryBaby pedal. Or, flip modes and SOUL PRESS is transformed into a volume pedal which allows you to fade up and down or use creative volume-changing effects. You can determine the range over which you can change the volume for more precise control. The third mode enables you to use the SOUL PRESS to control the expression from an external device, for example a rack mounted effects processor by Boss, TC, Line 6 or Digitech.
SOUL PRESS follows in the Hotone tradition of being tiny in stature, while maintaining uncompromising functionality and sound quality. It is also super-easy to play - LEDs indicate what mode the pedal is in, or whether it is bypassed, and a footswitch toggles between modes and switches the effects out when you don't need them.
Current consumption: Max 20mA
Dimensions: 62.5mm (D) x 138mm (W) x 51mm (H)

First, the good stuff about the Soul Press: it's nice and small. It does volume and wah. You can adjust the volume sweep. It's solidly made of good metal.
But I didn't keep it, for one main reason: the wah sound is like a harsh Crybaby with way too much distortion added. Which is fine for Jimi-style leads, but a lot of the time I just want that old wacka-wacka Shaft thing on clean rhythm parts, and this can't do that as cleanly as it should. No matter what volume or gain level you hit this thing with, it cracks up the signal and adds that squonky Crybaby midrange harshness that, while helping an already-distorted lead cut through the mix, is not at all what I want added to my clean tone, and clean wah is vital on many tunes. So I guess this Hotone is less Hot One and more Ho Tone.
That said, if all you need wah for is lead, then this might be just what you want, as it sure does leave plenty of room on your pedalboard. However, it was a bit small for my size 11 shoe, which overlapped it considerably and ended up hitting the pedal next to it, which is never good. It's also got the adapter jack on the side, a big minus for me. If you're trying to conserve pedalboard real estate, which this was clearly designed to do, put the plug on top, kids. I just don't get why some firms don't understand that. Don't you guys play? Or do you all have mega-PedalTrains with space for 27 pedals?
The Soul Press is also a decent volume pedal, though I'd guess the pot will go within a year or two if you're on it a lot. I still prefer the Morley-style light-pots that never wear out. You must also be careful not to turn off the wah or volume by accident when using the Soul Press, as it happens pretty easily. Not great when you're gigging and perhaps a little wild and out of control.
One real negative is that you can't switch wah to volume or vice-versa by foot; you need to bend down and switch them by hand on the side. Being able to go from wah to vol via the footswitch is a key thing that both Morley and Hotone neglect, and that's truly unfortunate for those of us who'd like that feature. Having it be optional via a side switch would be perfection. Hello, engineers working for one or both of these firms...
So, if you have small feet (or lots of room around the pedal on your board), only want a raw, wailing wah sound, and need a tiny pedal that does both volume and wah, this is not a bad choice. It can also function as an expression pedal when hooked up to a device that uses one, but I don't use one of those, so I can't say how well it does that, sorry.
By the way, as far as true bypass goes, the Morley is the most transparent of the three when not on. That matters a lot to me as I put the wah at the start of the chain and I don't really want much of a buffer there, despite what some folks say about a buffer up front. Vintage wahs are infamous for making noise due to that, and none of these does, so that's a plus.
The mini-Crybaby sounds the best of the three, but not by much, and is wah-only. Pretty much the same size though, so if you only need a tiny wah, I'd go for the Dunlop over the other two.
But I ended up keeping my mini-wah/volume from Morley instead, as its wah is easily adjustable from clean to fuzzy (though it has a tone some like and some don't), its pot won't wear out, and you can change the volume and wah tones to your preference by moving the led lights inside. You do have to use a button to change from volume to wah, but that also means you won't switch them by accident while wailing away. It also fits my foot better. Plus, surprisingly, it's twenty bucks cheaper. And it's made in the USA, a rare thing for any low-priced pedal these days. This Hotone is made in China, and my Chinese pedals always seem to crap out within a year or two...caveat emptor.
All told, while neither is perfect, I much prefer the Morley mini-wah/volume, but the Soul Press is still a good and versatile pedal at a fair price.
Still, I'll take Made In USA and cheaper any day, as those two things rarely go together these days.
