The Original Wah
The CRYBABY has been a standard in the world of music since its introduction in the late 1960's. Its rugged construction and efficient design have graced the foot of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, David Gilmour, and many other guitar greats.
By rocking your foot back and forth on the pedal, you can change the effect that the CRYBABY has on the tone of your instrument instantaneously. Toe down will give you more treble, heel down will give you more bass. The speed and amount of effect you use depends on your style of playing.
When placing the pedal in one position, you will hear a boost in that particular frequency. This boost can be used to add sustain and create feedback of a desired overtone.
The CRYBABY features a heavy, die-cast construction, for a road-ready wah pedal that'll provide years of reliability.
Hot Potz Potentiometer
The original CRYBABY boasts a 100K ohm Hot Potz potentiometer, built to last and providing you with a quick, abrupt wah sound.
Power the CRYBABY with a 9-volt battery, or grab an optional Dunlop ECB-003 AC Adapter for powering via outlet.
Dunlop provides extra peace of mind by offering a one-year warranty from date of purchase.

Hard item to review because there's a lot of ways to look at this thing. In short, it's a good and obviously usable wah with a classic sound, and at a great price. BUT, it's a one-trick pony and has a few small drawbacks. There are (very slightly) better sounding and more functional wahs today in my opinion, though none at this price.
First some wah history + my experience: wahs went into major production in the mid-60s, and so this design is a reflection of the infancy of wahs. To some, especially in the guitar community, the earliest designs of [whatever] were the best and there's no changing their mind. My Dad's a guy like that. Fair enough, I know I'm not swaying opinions that were formed 40+ years ago! But I got my Crybaby (from Dad) as a present in '88 or '89 and used it for 20+ years. Never even tried another, before recently. I had just always been accustomed to all of the little quirks of my Crybaby and accepted them.
I don't use the wah effect all that much and it stays off for probably 3 out of 4 songs; it's a pretty essential effect when needed but easy to get carried away with. Most of the music I play falls somewhere in the range of heavy rock-heavy metal, but at home I'll do a little classic rock or blues rock here and there. I'm not doing anything radically different with a wah, mostly just your typical Guns N' Roses, Alice in Chains, Jimi Hendrix type parts and the occasional solo.Read more ›
