Ashdown SZ Funk Face Twin Dynamic Filter Pedal

With Variable Valve Drive

Regarded as one of Britain’s all-time greatest bass players, Stuart Zender is best known for being one of the founding members and the original bass player of funk band, Jamiroquai.

The Ashdown Stuart Zender Funk Face is a dedicated bass twin dynamic filter pedal that’s fully qualified on producing those distinctive choppy “Virtual Insanity” type bass grooves.

Funk Bass in your Face


The Funk Face’s simple 3-knob and 2-switch layout makes things simple for the bass player when those funky moments strike.

The Funk Face’s ‘Sensitivity’ rotary control allows the player to shape the exact effects response, whilst the ‘Output’ knob allows you to decide just how much you it you want. Dependent on your playing style, attack and dynamics - by tweaking the Output and Sensitivity controls in unison - you can range from subtle filtering to a fully responsive “Funk Bass in your Face” Auto Wah.

Real Valve Driven Distortion

The 12AX7 powered ‘Valve’ drive distortion switch can be selected by foot to naturally enrich the harmonics of the Funk Face pedal, whilst the Wah effect is also footswitchable.

A strategically placed switch on the right ride of the pedal allows the player to decide on whether the valve overdrive is added pre or post-wah, providing yet more tonal opportunities.

True bypass for True Tone

The SZ Funk Face features genuine true bypass switching for zero-colouration of your input signal when the pedal isn't in use. The Output level control lets you dial in the perfect balance between the effect and the true bypass level and effectively works as a clean level boost when the Wah feature isn’t in use – bringing you up a notch in the mix when demand strikes.

Built for the Road

At the rear-end is a simple ¾”inch jack in and jack output. This 18-volt pedal can run off a 9-volt supply in limiting situations, however 18-volt is recommended.

The SZ Funk Face is built for the road, with metal casing, premium controls and switches.
