standard reliable wah pedal
I have only ever owned one wah wah pedal and that is because I have only ever needed one wah wah pedal! That pedal is this pedal! No extra buttons or anything like it just normal wah wah. if you are looking for a standard reliable wah pedal this is the one for you!
A true rock classic every guitar player should have.
If you play the real thing-the Dunlop Original Cry Baby wah pedal-you get the real sound. The heavy die-cast steel construction of this classic effect can take all the stompin' you've got in you. Totally smooth, silent, consistent, and easy to control. Made in the USA. Uses optional ECB-003 power supply.
great started wah
iThis is it. One of the classic guitar pedals that started it all. The Dunlop Original Cry Baby Wah Wah Pedal is arguably one the most famous of Dunlop pedals with wah being one of most famous effects of all time. This iteration of the legendary Cry Baby Wah remains true to the orginal Thomas Organ design from 1966. Let’s see how it holds up to the test of time in our Dunlop Original Cry Baby Wah Wah pedal review. Want to know what a Cry Baby wah pedal sounds like? Go check out Voodoo Child (Slight Return) by Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton’s solo at the end of White Room by Cream. These are just a couple of the famous performances that o we their existence to the sound of the Cry Baby.
Works for what I do
I own a 90s model modded with a Red Fasel inductor, true bypass, and volume/gain fixes. It has more tone coloration than a more vintage-voiced wah, which to me, makes the Crybaby sound more like a human voice. I also like how the treadle feels
Put it in front of the amp for the best results
This wah pedal is a beast by being extremely versatile. I prefer it in front of the amp. There was one time I put it in the effects loop and when I went full heel position, it sucked the life right out of the sound. There was no top end and it got quieter. The price is also very reasonable and it's built like a tank.
Classic Wah tones that almost everybody loves
I have two of these pedals that have been modified for true bypass switching and the stock inductor replaced with a red Fazel inductor for a more pronounced wah tone. In its stock state the bypass tone has an effect on the clean tone that I don't like, it's hard to define what it is, but something is audibly different, so this is remedied by TBP switching.
I've always wanted a wah pedal and crybaby always makes the best and they have so many options. But this is the best standard wah, it sounds great, and works great. I always love how durable their pedals are. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice standard wah.
Cry Baby, Cry...
I tested this and the Vox 847 Wah. The Cry Baby was exactly what i wanted! Only thing I noticed is that the bypass is not true bypass. And you (or at least I) can hear a difference when it's in the signal chain. But nobody besides you will ever notice it!
Classic Tone at an Unbeatable Price
If there is a must-have effect pedal for any guitar player, this is it! Cry Baby is an effect that needs no introduction. It has been heard in countless recordings and live shows through the decades, and it will continue to be heard as long as there is music to be made.
