Wah wah pedals for piano
Do any pianists on here ever use wah wah pedals with their electric pianos? It's something I've been thinking about for a while, and was just wondering what models they use, and techniques etc?

Listening to Jen Stevens & the hiccups (see above) - great stuff!
Your electric piano should have a 'line out' signal. Connect this to a standard guitar wah-wah pedal and take the output from that to your PA. The trick is in the mixing i.e. how much of the processed signal you want to hear. Not really sure what you are trying to achieve?? Need more info.

Not really CH it's just a hobby - I learn along the way (like all of us) - believe me I am still in the 'beginner' stage. Some of the stuff the pros come up with is quite amazing. (Bob Ludwig, Bob Clearmountain, Andy Jackson to mention a few) But there is one thing no technique, expensive gear, top-end studios, big-name producers or anything else along those lines can replace. You must have the 'germ' of the idea in place before you start and the material must be good regardless of the recording environment gear etc. etc. And then you have to have musicians who have an appreciation of space and allowing the other guy to have his moment. There are a lot of big egos in the music business and you have to dispense with this before you attempt to record anything. They are best left to live performances. End of sermon.
Oh and by the way it's NOT what I do - it's what I should have done, but now am learning to do - It's never too late to make a complete fool of yourself. Amd I am enjoying every moment......senility is obviously kicking in.
In my next life I'm gonna be a ballerina.....
