*Connect an expression pedal (e.g. the FCV100) to the EXP/CTL connector
(5) The ¼" TRS EXP/CTL connector can be used to connect two different types of pedals:
• Use an expression pedal for Wah pedal functionality (for all modes).
• Use an external foot switch instead of the pedal foot switch ((10)) to tap in the effect time
(in Tempo mode only).
(6) Use the ¼" TS GTR IN connector to plug in a guitar. Use either input (6) or (7).
(7) Use the ¼" TS BASS IN connector to plug in a bass guitar. If you use this input, the filter parameters
are optimized for bass signals. With a cable in input (6), this input has no function.
(8) The ¼" TS OUT connector sends the signal to your amp or other effects devices.

(9) The ON/BATT LED illuminates when the effect is activated. It also serves as a battery
level indicator. If the Tap function is active, the LED flashes.
(10) Use the foot switch to activate/deactivate the effect. When pressing the foot switch 2 seconds
or longer, you can tap in the Auto Wah effect time (ON/BATT LED flashes).
Use the DC IN connection at the front of the unit to plug in a 9 V power supply (not included).
The BATTERY COMPARTMENT is located underneath the pedal cover. To install or replace the 9 V battery,
press the hinges with a ballpen and remove the pedal cover. Be careful not to scratch the unit.
◊ The DW400 has no On/Off switch. It is operable as soon as you insert a plug into the
IN connector. Disconnect the plug, if you don’t use the DW400. In doing so, you can
extend the life time of the battery.
The SERIAL NUMBER is located at the underside.
◊ In rare cases interferences of the normal function may appear by external influence
(e.g. electrostatic discharge), as for example sound disturbances or malfunctions.
If this occurs, please turn down the volume on subsequent amplifiers and disconnect
the input connector briefly to restart the application.
2. Safety Instructions
