Power the CRYBABY with a 9-volt battery or optional adapter.

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.

Wah Versatility
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.

Solid Construction
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.

Powering Options
Power the CRYBABY with a 9-volt battery, or grab an optional Dunlop ECB-003 AC Adapter for powering via outlet.

One-Year Warranty
Dunlop provides extra peace of mind by offering a one-year warranty from date of purchase.

This is the standard wah. This thing sounds great! There are a lot of wah pedals with a wider range out there but if you are looking for the traditional wah sound, this is the way to go. No other company has sucessfully replicated THIS sound. Other wahs are cool because of additional features and for their own affect (yes that is the spelling I intended). I gave this a 4 for the lack of features. If you buy this, a try adjusting the pot (read the instructions). Most people do not know about this feature but you can really change the voicing of this wah wah.

If you're looking for a great wah pedal, look no further. You really don't need all the extra knobs and stuff, this pedal has the sound your looking for. Great clean, distorted, overdriven, just about any sound you put through it will come out with that beautiful Hendrix inspired sound.

I had the original Cry-Baby back in the '70's and was very happy with it. I recently bought another and was just as pleased. They are still well built units; solid, heavy, killer wah-wahs.

The problem with this pedal is that you have to step all the way down on it to turn it on, which produces a sound. The Morley pedals have a separate on/off switch, so you can turn them on or off at a given position. The difference is the sound is just a bit more professional if the wah isn't always turning on or off at the top of the wah frequency. Suppose you wanted to set the wah in the middle, and just leave it there. You can't really do that with this pedal. It is a bit smaller than a morley wah, but in my experience, the sound is equivalent on the base models.

This pedal is built to last. Very solid construction and good use of materials throughout. Delivers classic cry baby wah sound. One of the best basic wah pedals available. Would love it to have an auto-wah switch but you cant have everything!

Great pedal, but if you pull it open and put in a couple of cheap mods, this thing is absolutley rediculous! It's a boutique pedal with only a little time and solder.

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. I don't want a wah pedal to sound radically different.

Anyway so that's where I'm coming from. Now on my Crybaby, one day the pot crapped out again and I just decided it was time to explore other options, figuring I could always repair it or replace it with the same if I wanted.

This wah is obviouslly a classic used by many artists over the years. If your just starting out using wah's then this is probaly the one for you its got great tone and sounds fantastic. There are other cry-baby's out there some with more range of tones and somewhat recently the classic wah was released. If you're going for more of a 60's sound wah then this one will do it for you as it has the "Fasel inductor" that was the key to the tone of the 60's wah. For starting out its a great and durable wah.
