I don't know where to start. If you own a Wah pedal then you remember back in your noob days when you didn't really have much to go on other than what the songs you hear sound like.

That in mind, I messed with a friends Wah and decided maybe I wasn't very good with it or it wasn't a pedal for me. Then I went to one of the Guitar Centers here in Austin and tried a couple more. Still was very very very unsure how people like Joe Bonnamassa and Jimi Hendrix got perfect sounding Wah. Eventually I found myself at my favorite guitar center in town, talking to my favorite guitar center employee and decided what the hell.. Might as well as about wah pedal.

Without even thinking about it for a full second he said 535Q. I said "what?" thinking he was talking code, as we walked to the display case. He pointed at this one and said "thats the one." I looked in and decided to test it out. I also had him pull out the Joe Bonnamassa Wah and tried them side by side. I didn't have to get past this one before my mind was made up but I tried Joe's anyway. This thing was AMAZING! I immediately paid and went home to add it into my sounds. I dialed it in to what I like (boost switch off, Range nob maxed clockwise, volume all the way down, wah range 1 hour from maxed out) and left it that way ever since, aside from having fun here and there. I lay down some rhythm into my loop pedal then turn this on and it changes the tone a bit while blowing people away. It also gives my guitar a little volume boost when I activate it so it's PERFECT for switching to lead. That's 100% customizable though.

All in all I would say this is one of the two pedals I own that can be for ANYONE. No matter what sound you're going for, this can do it. That's the reason guitarist of every style will recommend this.

Decent wah but I promise you, it will break. Be prepared to add 20 to 50 to whatever you pay after a couple years. My wah is just a couple years old and When it's on it works but when I switch it off there's no sound at all. It needs a new switch. Dunlop will fix it for 50 plus shipping or you can buy the switch for 20 and do it yourself.
I'm no touring musician. I played this wah a bunch when I got it, then about once every couple months just in my living room. It broke under that kind of usage. I'd look elsewhere.

    Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby 535Q Multi-Wah Pedal:

    I was back and forth on just the basic Crybaby vs the 535. Go with this pedal! I am able to dial in my sound better and get more variety from this one. Can say anything really bad about it.

        Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby 535Q Multi-Wah Pedal:

        I really like the possibilities I have with the 535Q. It's a very responsive wah capable of producing almost any sound you have in mind. I don't like the fact that it doesn't have a LED to tell you it's on. Sometimes on stage you find your sound weird till you realize it is because the wah was on. This happens no matter how experienced you are. I have two of this.

              Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby 535Q Multi-Wah Pedal:

              This is a real quality product if you're looking for a wah with a lot of versatility and are fairly experienced when it comes to FX. however to someone who just needs some wah in their life, and doesn't need to get to fancy with it, i would reccomend the standard cry baby. much cheaper, and still gives you the great wah tone. in hindsight i wish i had but the standard; i just leave mine set up like a standard and dont mess with the variable q and eq switcher much. the onboard boost is a nice feature though. if you generally use wah in solos it eliminates the need for a boost pedal. Overall, great wah, but not for everyone.

                As my headline says "A life is not enough" to deal with every sound you can have with this bad bad boy.
                If you play in a rock band and want your guitar to scream when the wah is on, turn the big knob to position 3. Then, if you want to play some funk, go to position 6. If you feel you need more accent, move the Q knob. If you feel you need more volume when turning the wah, the red button will do the job.
                So I find this wah gives me more options than I actually need. If you play a lot of styles, you should consider getting this wah pedal because it is a multiple tool.

                  I have been playing guitar since '89 and used many different wahs for lead playing. I have found that this wah can get close to the Zakk Wylde tone to Jerry Cantrell and more. Flexible tweaking capabilities make this wah a must try for those that have found some wahs work for some songs requiring a wah on parts but those same wahs don't sound as good for a little different wah tone.

                  Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby 535Q Multi-Wah Pedal:

                  This wah pedal is ok. Im gonna start off with the goods. Its extremely versatile. You can get a ton of different sounds out of this pedal and its compact. The negatives are its a tone robber. As soon as i added this pedal in the chain it straight up ruined my tone. I had to go out and buy a buffer to put after it to bring the sound back up. Another issue is the 9v plug in barrel thing. The adapter kept falling out of it and it would accidently shut off. Not somehting you want happening in a live situation. Another minor issue is it has no led. Other than that it is an ok pedal. I would prefer a cae wah or a modded crybaby original. This was replaced in my chain with a modded crybaby original.
