OVERVIEW

The Dunlop DB-01 Dime Cry Baby From Hell is a hot-rodded wah with an extended sweep so you can get more high end with the pedal down or low end with the pedal up. A 5-way selector on the side lets you choose which frequency you want to play with and also features a kick-in boost. LED indicators inform you of status, even on darkened stages. An extra input on the left lets you go in and out on the same side. Controls include an adjustable volume boost (0 to +17dB). An adjustable Q control modulates frequency breadth and a fine tune knob lets you adjust the toe down sweep range. It sounds badass and with camo graphics, it looks badass.

Arm yourself for rock warfare.

First of all, if you're going to get this wah, take your time and mess around with all the options! A lot of reviews here say that they couldn't 'dial in' a good tone. To that, I would say be patient and keep trying!

Let me also say, I definitely admire and respect Dimebag's playing, but I don't think I'd ever have any interest in purchasing a Pantera CD. Not only that, but his style is NOTHING like the way I like to play. I'm not a shredder, by any means. But, that doesn't matter. His wah sounds great. It's a Crybaby, of course! I've had an original Crybaby and a Morley Tremonti Power Wah in the past. This wah can get those tone, and more. I typically play 'old school rock n' roll', but the wah sounds great when the amp tone is cleaned up, too. Again, don't be discouraged if you can't set up 'your sound' in two minutes. Once you find it, you'll love it.

The grip is awesome. No slippin'-and-a-slidin'. And yeah, maybe it's the guy in me, but the paint job is sick, too. The boost is a neat feature- easy to kick on with your foot, though I don't use it very much. But, it's there if you want it!

Bottom line: It's a Crybaby. You can't go wrong. Take your time, mess around with it, and you probably won't need another wah for a very, very long time.

I bought one a few days ago, returned it the next day to trade it in for an original crybaby: my band's live bassist lent me his original crybaby a few months ago, and when I had brought the Crybaby From Hell home for a test drive I noticed that the original blew it out of the water when I compared them. The wah only sounds halfway on your signal and it doesn't give you any low-end bite on any of the settings. They claim this to be the world's most versatile wah, but I honestly say that you're better off getting an original Crybaby because this just doesn't deliver "the goods" that you expect to hear from a wah. Sure, it's got a lot of knobs, but they seriously don't do much to the sound at all. Unless I missed a hidden knob that wasn't noted anywhere that increases the wetness and low end, this pedal seriously fails in being the wah it's been advertised as being. Steer clear from this pedal, as awesome as the camo finish looks!

    Comments about Dunlop DB-01 Dimebag Cry Baby From Hell:

    So I have been playing for a while...since 87 so that's close to 30 years. I have been thru my fair share of wah pedals and this is one of the best. First I will say I am not a Dimebag fan. I met him in person when Pantera was opening for the Black Sabbath Reunion tour in the late 90's. It was not a positive experience. But despite wanting to not like this pedal because of that, I still love it. The adjustable sweep range is really handy in live settings when you want to adjust the sound to the character of the song you are playing or the overall acoustics. The boost can be useful on a clean channel to add a bit of dirt but on dirty channels you don't really notice it. I don't mess with the mini knobs too much. Just set them and forget them. The torque adjustment is a cool idea but I couldn't really feel much of a difference and the switchable input might be handy, but would be more handy if the switch was on the outside of the pedal!

    That said the range of sounds you can get with the pedal are phenomenal. I really like the sound of Kirk Hammett's wah the best and have a KH-95 I leave on my pedalboard which stays home, but the versatility of the Dimebag wah makes it a better option for me when playing out.

    I would totally recommend this pedal to anyone wanting a high quality adjustable wah. But beware, due to the sheer number of adjustments onboard, prepare to spend some time exploring it to get a feel for what sounds work for you.

      Comments about Dunlop DB-01 Dimebag Cry Baby From Hell:

      I bought the pedal a couple years ago because I thought it was time for me to have one. I never owned a wah pedal nor had I used one before and it took me a year to actually plug it in every time I picked up my instrument. It does everything the 535Q Cry Baby does with an added boost button so you won't need any more wah pedals because this one has it all. Just start at the middle and work your way out to any tone you're feeling because it is confusing at first to set the knobs to the specific sound you are looking for. It is built like a tank, and it's got Dime's name on it so it rocks. Trust me, if you're thinking about buying it... DO IT.

          Comments about Dunlop DB-01 Dimebag Cry Baby From Hell:

          I bought this because of all the custom feature. You are supposed to be able to get a custom sound out of it. I don't like it. I got one for about 1/2 what it sells for and it still isn't worth the money. This is my first dedicated wah. The last one was part of my Line 6 X3 live. I liked it a lot. Personally I would pass on this. I bought it with out trying it out. Can't even tell you are using it if you have distortion on and are above the 12th fret. It hurts me to give this a bad review because I have so much respect for Dime and his playing. I am a Dime fan, I like him and I like his playing ability/style but not necessarily a Pantera fan.

              Like the feel and the range of the reverb. THe adjustments provided enough control to get the sound(s) I need and the pedal feel I like without needing an IT guy to work it. Great price for the quality and features.

              WOW, THIS THING GIVES YOU SOME DYNAMIC CHOICES. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF TECHNICAL HEART. THIS BABY IS MADE FOR THE PROS. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING WITH THIS WAH THAT ANY WAH CAN EVER DO. MY FIRST WAH WAS A DUNLOP, AND THIS WILL BE MY LAST. I JUST HAD TO HAVE SOMETHING SEPARATE FROM MY BOSS AND GT STUFF FOR THOSE TIMES YOU NEED TO FOCUS ON SIMPLICITIES OF TONE AND ITS DELIVERY. GREAT WAH. NOW MAKE IT IN DESERT CAMO CUZ I FOUGHT IN IRAQ! INSTEAD OF DIME, PUT MY SERGEANT'S STRIPES AS THE LOGO!

                  Comments about Dunlop DB-01 Dimebag Cry Baby From Hell:

                  After hours of research, I decided to add this to my board to replace my old trusty Crybaby 535 (non-Q). This is a very musical pedal with lots of flexibility. It has everything you need in a wah plus a number of unique features like the high-end adjustment and cool tension adjustment on the rocker.
                  As others have pointed out, this is not a "metal" pedal even though it's Dime's signature. I really respect his playing; however, I don't own any Pantera albums and honestly am not into them. Not that it matters as much as the tone, but the camo is very unique and pretty cool in my opinion. As with other Dunlop pedals quality is top-notch. You won't be disappointed with the Crybaby From Hell!

                      I've owned several wah pedals throughout my career, this is by far the best one I've ever owned. I wouldn't suggest it to novices, as it takes a bit of tweaking to get the desired sound, but every seasoned musician should have this wah pedal. Works great with other effects and just looks awesome with the camo. The boost switch on the side is excellent and it can easily be engaged with your foot for adjustments on the fly.

                      This pedal is not all its cracked up to be. It just doesn't have enough low end or enough sweep. I just got rid of mine and got the Slash Classic way. It is a lot simpler but sounds ten times better. Don't get this pedal.
