Mojo Hand FX’s Little Wonder is a compact filter pedal inspired by the Mu-Tron

The pedal scales down the brand’s Wonder Filter.

Mojo Hand FX has introduced the Little Wonder stompbox, a sized-down version of its Wonder Filter pedal. The pedal is the Texas-based brand’s take on the coveted Mu-Tron filter pedal from the 70s.

The Little Wonder simplifies the control section of its bigger brother, making it more straightforward to dial in envelope filter tones. A two-way switch lets you choose between low- or band-pass filtering modes. The former dials back on high frequencies, while the latter slopes off the highs and lows, akin to a wah effect.

You can fine-tune the ‘sharpness’ of the filter with the peak control, which shapes signals to go from a smooth roll-off, to a full-on quack attack at the extremes.

The gain knob on the other hand helps the pedal adapt to your instrument and playing dynamics. It tweaks the input sensitivity of the envelope without introducing colouration to the overall signal.

Finally, the blend pot lets you set the right balance between your instrument’s dry signal and the effect’s. This could be especially handy for bass players looking to add a touch of filtered character to a carefully crafted bass tone.

The Little Wonder is set to release 25 September 2020 at $149.
