This wah, simply put, is a high quality wah. From looking at it, to holding it, to rocking it under your foot, you can feel that this wah is well built. The newer ones are equipped with a "Hot Potz" sealed pontentiometer, furthering it's durability. It has the pronounced mid-rangey tone that one would expect from something labelled as a "classic" wah, and the red fasel inductor really completes it. Being true bypass is an adder bonus too! I urge you all to TRY this pedal. Just because it works for me, doesn't mean it works for you.
It features true bypass, and a red fasel inductor, and a sealed "Hot Potz" potentiometer perfect for creating a warm, classic WAH, with increased durability.
Built like a tank, inside and out. The rocker feels solid, and the parts inside are high grade, especially the sealed potentiometer. and is very well put together.
A relatively inexpensive wah, considering the features and quality.

Okay, Dunlop is for the most part a very good and quality brand. This pedal on the other hand is NOT! As most people know Hendrix never played this pedal and he probably wouldn't accept is as anything more than one more useless pedal. The pedal is built to be very strong and durable, and it is, but it only gives you two options, super low and super high with nothing in between. There is no sweep between the two ends of the spectrum it is a pedal without a valuable use and I unfortunately was too stupid to return it and get a better wah pedal such as any vox wah or any other brand than Dunlop. To my dismay this Dunlop Wah is by far my least favorite pedal ever!

Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

Some people are saying "this is a great pedal if you are a Beginner." I think that statement confuses two things. One, that using more features makes you a more advanced player, and the second, an advanced player wouldn't use this pedal. I've been playing for over twenty years, recorded, played live shows, teach music, and consider myself advanced and this pedal still sounds the best to me. To me more features and taming more features does not make you advanced, it just means you've spent more time figuring out the features. What usually happens with features is you tend to find a couple of settings you like and stay in that range. Meaning you've spent more for features you do not use. I'd rather spend my time playing than noodling with knobs in search of tone. That is why to me the GCB-95 is fantastic. It allows you a wide enough sweep to have versatility, and to me that takes more effort to learn to do well than a pedal that limits the sweep. Overall, this is just a great pedal for the price.

    Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

    I had been using a Mister Cry Baby Super Volume/Wah Pedal for 20 years and after thousands of shows, finally needed to replace it. After lots of research, I decided to go with the Cry Baby Classis. It was the right choice and sounds even better than what I had used for so long. The tones are warm and quite pleasing, yet it really growls when you want it to. Incredible, full sound plus the true-bypass has brought my 100 Marshall back to life! Kudos to Dunlap for getting it right on this one!

        Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

        I've literally had dozens and dozens of wah pedals sent to me to try out over the last 15+ years, and purchased several vintage and boutique one's, but this was the first one that just seemed perfect. Really good sweep, bass not muddy, and highs not too harsh. I honestly feel this is the best wah out there. The same one that was sent to me from Dunlop about 9 years ago, is still on my pedalboard today. I've toured with it repeatedly, and has worked perfectly every time.

        Classic - yeah baby!

        By Richard Bilbrey

        from Baltimore suburb, MD

        Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

        The wah effect is perfect. Easiest wah to use that I have ever tried. I THINK it robs a little of my tone when it is turned of though.
        That sound difference of that fasel do-dad is a great feature. Just wish it had direct drive!
        The wah effect is indeed classic and SWEET! Pedal action is perfect.
        I don't think you can get a better sounding or usable wah for even twice the price.

        Great tone.. terrible quality

        By benjamon gaude

        from colorado

        Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

        Great tone... terrible construction
        I wanted a straight forward pedal... this doesn't have a lot of features but that is okay.
        The quality isn't great... I ordered it and it broke mechanically in the first half hour.. Got a second unit... it was broken mechanically when it came out the box.
        If you bought one and the rocking mechanism is "sticky" it is because it is a poor design with poor construction. I was very very disappointed.
        I lost respect for dunlop because of this pedal

        The Wah Pedal EVERY Guitarist Needs!

        Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

        I bought my Crybaby Classic in search of a simple wah pedal that could simply do the job, but this thing gave me more than I could have ever asked for! Right from the beginning, pulling it out of the box and seeing that the entire thing is made out of metal and tough rubber ensured me that this sucker would last a LONG time! So sure enough when I plugged it in with my Fender Strat and Mesa Express amp it sounded amazing. It has a super wide range of wah (enough for any guitarist) and is dead silent, not even producing the slightest hum. Also, its bypass is a TRUE bypass, and doesn't touch the signal coming through at all...allowing me not to have to plug up my noise suppressor too. Everybody needs one of these!!

        Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

        This was one of the first pedals I got to get a good idea on how pedalboards work (the others were a BOSS SD-1, Modtone Chorus, and BOSS DD-3 Delay). Now, it has quite a good tone, but it's not strong enough. Granted it gives a sweet sound clean or distorted, there's not enough. It's quite undramatic with it's tone. If you want a serious wah tone, don't get this unless it's absolutely what you want. However, if you want to learn how to use a wah to your perfection, this is a great starting point.

        As I had said... get's the job done, and done well.
        It is a wonderful, basic wah. Get's the job done and theres not much more to it then that. With a real bypass and a classic CryBaby sound you can't get much better for what it is.
        The thing is build like a tank.

        Takes me back to old school daze

        Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

        Out of the box it was a little disappointing. It was the most common fault that you always hear about when it comes to Dunlop Crybabies... scratchy pots. I've had many Wah pedals in my 30 years of music including 2 original Thomas Organ Co. Crybabies. I've replaced a lot of pots because they just wear out just like the frets of a guitar or anything else. Turning down the volume might be the answer for some but if you really want some dynamic snarls while playing clean then that's not the option. The problem is with Dunlop's Hotpotz. I guarantee that replacing the original pot with something generic or better a Black Bear 100K (for half the price of the OEM) will make any Crybaby wail like some pro's rig. The Fasel inductor in the GCB-95F really does make a difference and is a God's send. The modern additions such as a battery compartment/access and the 9V DC input are great. Last comment, the GCB-95F employs sophisticated micro electronic circuitry. The pot, inductor and a couple of capacitors are all that's mod-able without specialized equipment. If you want a Crybaby to mod then stick with the GCB-95 and build on that.

              Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

              This is something I haven't read in many reviews & what a difference it makes.I had been playing a CB95 for many years. When I plugged in the true-bypass CB95-F,I noticed a drop in gain. The CB95 has a gain buffer that actually increases your gain! I also noticed in a multi-pedal setup,(especially with a distortion or overdrive in the mix)that the CB95 sounded much better. However,I use the distortion channel on my amp mostly & the only pedal I run in front is the CB95-F(the amp's FX loop for the rest).In this type of set-up it really shines,but if you want a darker & dirtier sound,try using the non bypass CB95.

              The Crybaby is definitely the best wah-wah out there. I havn't tried the other crybabies, but this one is the classic wah sound. It has a great wah range and tone. Perfect for 60's-80's music. The clean wah on this is not as good as some others, but the Classic with a ripping distortion is the best thing ever.

              All I play is Blues. This is a very nice smooth sounding pedal but, I was looking for something with more treble response. I was looking for something that gives that real harsh screamy sound in the toe down position. Well I found it in the Low cost GCB95 Crybaby. Try it,this pedal is a Keeper.

              Nice sound, bad pots/noise

              Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

              I have purchased two of these pedals and returned both. But YES, I do like the sound A LOT. Please keep reading... The first one had a bad pot so I returned it. The second one was better, but it was still quite noisy and the 'swooshy' noise was too pronounced and took away from the wah effect. It also had a physical squeek that I did not want to deal with. Now this pedal is analog and has a fasel inductor, so the sound is really sweet and the wah is thicker and more pronounced than digital wahs and the Morley Bad Horsie 2 which I recently purchased. With the Morley, you don't get pot problems because it is optical and you don't get noise either. Otherwise, for that nice analog wah sound you gotta get the crybaby classic. Would I buy it again? I really WISH I could, but I don't want to have to return it for a new one every time there is a problem. Great sound, but it seems like an unreliable product...?

              Comments about Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Fasel Inductor Wah Pedal:

              I have a crybaby without the Fasel and it does not hold the tone like this one does. Turn this one on and the low end stays strong unlike the other crybaby which drops those tones out. The Fasel makes a major difference! I don't know why they ever took the Fasel out! I got mine used and there is some static when I'm rocking the pedal, but I hope its the wear.

I play it with a Gibson SG Standard into a Line 6 Spider iii 75. Wah-Wah heaven. They should never of taken the fasel inductor out. Regardless of your skill level, this wah is perfect for you.
