This wah takes your sound to a whole next level, Dunlop and Custom Audio Electronics have made the best wah ever, is just perfect; true bypass, 2 Fasel inductors, LED indicators (on/off, boost, yellow/red Fasel), you have under your feet a boutique pedal, 2 wahs in 1 for a great price, you can sound mean and "cuacky" by just pushing the right side button. By far is the best wah I played with. Highly recommended.
I looked for a long time for an aggressive in your face full sounding Wah pedal. I must have bought 4 or 5 different pedals, all were missing something. I found the CAE and tweaked the Inside parameters to get it to sound how I wanted it to. Kenny Wayne Shepherd uses one and he talks about it on a you tube video about his rig. Good stuff.

This wah cries with versatility.
Bob Bradshaw of Custom Audio Electronics designed the MXR MC-404 CAE Dual Inductor Wah Pedal with the Cry Baby design team to create a highly versatile wah-wah with top-grade components. The MC404 CAE Wah features dual Fasel inductors with 2 distinct voices (high-end emphasis or low-to-mid resonance), and a built-in MXR MC-401 Boost/LineDriver that adds even more flexibility.
Choose between inductors and turn the boost on or off with the side-mounted kickswitches. Bright LEDs on each side of the wah indicate operation status. The MC404 CAE Wah boasts true hardwire bypass, a long-life CTS potentiometer, and internal pots for the Q control-which varies the intensity of the wah effect-and gain adjustments. You get the high performance and quality that you expect from Dunlop, the world leader in wah-wah technology.
Bob Bradshaw has been one of the world's foremost designers of custom guitar pedal boards and effects systems for many of rock's most influential guitarists for 3 decades. And for just as long, MXR and Cry Baby have been synonymous with the effects pedal innovations that have shaped the tone of modern electric guitar playing. So it was only natural for them all to join forces to create a dynamic line of pedals offering the ultimate in tone, functionality and road-worthy dependability. Since 1980, CAE's groundbreaking pedal designs were made in limited quantities only for a select clientele of world-class guitarists. But now these very same devices and circuits are available to all.
