        See above. Would get a 10 if it weren't for lack of two features, the LED and True Bypass and the switch adjustment thing. Oh... and I just remembered that the nylon (or other such decent "engineering plastic" segment gear wears out regularly although I hadn't had to replace mine yet; I did read about it and already had a spare. I suspect that to be a necessary evil to keep the smoothness in the physical action of the wah. I'm a mechanical engineer and that could have been improved, but possibly not at some expense, so a fair trade of imo.
        I had this about eight years ago, no longer, it was ripped off.

        I'm thinking about finally replacing it, long story of me without gear and such. Started seeing the reviews and had a question about it on the guitar forum I'm on that has quite a few very experienced and pro guitarists.

        imho, I'm not a pro, but did use this through a couple of pretty decent amps (Roland JC-55 and Randall Pro Tube 1000) and guitar (Highway 1 Strat), the tone, wah and adjustments on this are all very good. Did a few A/B's in the stores, but really didn't look much further than this one. All the adjustments are cool, useful, so forth. Not too much range in some of the adjustments as said by many here. But I was able to find the tone in my head with it. Once that is done, I didn't change it much, but was very happy with the tone, did make changes once and a while for a certain sound/song. I found the "Q" part (range of and center of frequency affected) to be the most useful/difference in range.

        Now the "but". No LED, a major oversight in a pedal this expensive imho although I do understand wanting to keep the vintage look, but I'm sure an inconspicuous place could have been found. The switch adjustment thing, it IS a simple adjustment and didn't need it again once I had done it. BUT... it should have been adjusted correctly at the factory and/or not slipped.

        Thos two things are major distractions, but not enough to stop me from getting another, just... annoying.

        Also, a mod I was planning on making was to change to a True-Bypass, an oversight imho at this price point and only a couple of dollars for the factory, maybe ten for me or you.

        BUT... in spite of all that, I thought the tone and wah were great and the adjustments very useful. Get one if the idea of the adjustments appeals to you.
        That adjustment is a major hassle until you learn about it... online as I did.
        Kind of pricey, but nothing else there like it as far as I know without going boutique.

        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.

            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.

                Must have Wah

                By marty manning

                from Savannah, GA

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

                It's a great wah. You literally have a wah arsenal in this pedal. I don't really care for the boost. Some people may find it useable, me personally it's something they could have left off. Other than that, this is by far the best wah I have ever owned. If something happens to this one I would definitely buy another.
                Are you kidding? This pedal has everything you need to fine tune your wah sweep to perfection. I'm a tone junkie and this pedal delivers. BIG TIME!
                I've had mine for a couple of months and I use it everyday. It's a crybaby for pete's sake. It's well built and works as it should everytime.
                Worth every penny. It's like having a pedalboard full of nothing but wah pedals.

                Quite dissappointed

                By Stilldog

                from Peoria, Il

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

                To summarize, annoying octave sound, radio station, good for metal, Pearl Jam uses these, try before you buy, and not really worth the money.
                I bought this pedal mainly for the features. I loved the fact that it had two knobs and a dial, and I also bought it because I read that it is the wah that the members of Pearl Jam use.
                Note that I bought mine used off of ebay; the pedal was broken when I first got it. First my signal was cutting out every now and then (I got it back by stomping on the pedal twice), and then it started picking up radio stations. That's right, because of my wah pedal I listened to two football games and a heated discussion on Mitt Romney. Both problems stopped after I unsrewed the underbelly (very thin and flimsy by the way), looked at the inside, said aloud "I have no idea what I'm looking at" and then screwed the bottom back on without touching anything. I fixed a Danelectro flanger the same way when it wouldn't turn off.
                There is also a higher octave whenever the pedal is on, on any setting. It sounds good for metal, specifically Metallica, but if I wanted an octave pedal then I would have bought an octave pedal. I just want to hear those low notes without that annoying octave, which apparently is too much to ask for.
                Depending on what style you play, it can be your best friend or your worst nightmare. I definately will not be buying from Dunlop Crybaby again. My advice, play a crybaby and then a vox and if you are feeling zaney then a Morely, decide which you like better, then buy your wah. This is probably one of the harder pedal types to buy. Not worth the money in my opinion, but decide for yourself.

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

                Overall, I give it a 10 because my friend/relative gave me his comments to post here. And that's good enough for me.
                I bought this for a friend/relative. He wanted a wah for sometime. I own one that's over 30 years old and I gave that to my son. times are a changing. The features on this baby certainly far more than my original wah pedal.
                The quality tone it gets. made my guitar sound like it had custom pickups. It brings out dynamics I cannot get alone. The difference in tone control. It is virtually infinite on variations of tone which makes it a great pedal for any genre .The range is also adjustable with like a 5 channel limiter.
                Over all, I give it a 10 out of 10 for a wha! The only thing that felt weird about it was the tension. It is super easy to move. but i will get use to it. It's a really great pedal. If it sounded that good through my Digital Vox, I can only imagine how good it will sound through a Real amp!

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

                Overall, this is the wah you want if you don't want to have to buy a wah again. It's an investment; I can't see myself wanting another wah unless this one quits working.
                More variables than any other wah (except maybe the Dime Crybaby). This is really good if you play multiple styles and want multiple wah sounds. You can get a big, dramatic deep wah, or a sharp, jagged thin one, and anywhere in between. Also, the volume boost can give you a little bit of an edge or an aggressive distortion sound. I can accurately mimic Zakk Wylde, Jimi Hendrix, Kirk Hammet,or get a soulful Motown sound, to name a few.
                I've only had this for two weeks, so no verdicts yet. HOWEVER, by this time, the Vox wah that I originally bought was already making noise. Feels sturdy though. Take it how you will.
                `It's not cheap, but it's worth it. Keep in mind, if you only want one kind of wah sound, this will be a waste of money for you. Buy it if you're going to use the parameter controls.
