im very pleased with the crybaby wah wah model.I first purchased one back in 1993 and have never enjoyed any other brand's models...they never quite had the same comfort or feel that the crybaby has. After i finally killed it after a decade plus ov abuse, i just quit using one for years until recently when musician's friend offered me a great e-coupon discount.I decided it was time own a new one.I got the basic standard model since i don't go out for all the suped-up models..they are just not for me. I like the original set up and am very pleased with my purchase and musician's friends great deals and punctual shipping.very pleased, I am to put it simply.

I actually got this wah second hand. I found it stuck in a drawer where at my church where I typical play music at. I found the owner and he let me adopt it. It seem very sturdy, although the battery clip is broken. I think that is a very established flaw. That I can live with. I mount my effects on a board and use a power supply so no big deal. the bottom plate looks caved in. I seems very thin and flimsy. The rest of it is a iron tank.The Sound: This is the meat of the matter. Although it has a good sound the "sweep" is not ideal. Its very one side or the other. I'm sure you can adjust for that with technic but it seems like a unnatural movement. Toe down it sounds very shrill. Maybe you can over come that with amp setting but unless you plan on keeping it on the whole song whats the use. Heel down covers everything up where you can not be heard through the mix. The pedal sounds ok by its self but in real application your sound get lost in the fray. You'd need a boost, but then you'd regret it when you put the toe down.I also have a Modtone wah. Same price, but it gives you some nice features like LED, True by-pass, and more vocal "wah" sound. I ran them through the passes side by side and the modtone won. dunlop makes good wahs, but this isn't one of the better ones. Not bad, not the best.

    Comments about Dunlop Original Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

    I use the Cry Baby extensively and it is a strong tool that never lets me down. Well-built and to my ears the best wah pedal you can buy for any money. I have used one for decades and will continue to do so.

      Comments about Dunlop Original Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

      What else can be said....it's was perfect then, it still is. Used to borrow my Dads from the 70's, this new one I bought for myself is exactly the same (which is a great thing!). The tone is like no other, the construction is ....well...extremely heavy duty....my Dad used his for Decades of live giging, and it's still ticking. I don't expect this to be anyless. Every guitar player needs one!!

        Comments about Dunlop Original Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

        This is my first wah pedal. I don't usually get into a lot of effects since I mainly am writing songs. I am having a great time messing around with this pedal. I should have gotten one a long time ago. I also purchased the Dunlop ECB-003 AC adapter for this pedal at a ridiculously low price to save on batteries.

          Comments about Dunlop Original Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

          Sounds awesome. I had been borrowing my buddy's old crybaby for about a year, when he took it back I had to dish out the money to get one myself. Not too expensive and its very durable. Its pretty easy to use and can be a great way to mix things up for any level of musician. Every guitar player should have one (and it can be pretty sweet on the bass too).

          Comments about Dunlop Original Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

          It's a decent pedal but I'd recommend some basic tweaking to get the right frequency range for you. My only complaint is the loud switch and the rubber feet prone to breaking.

            Comments about Dunlop Original Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

            I've been using Cry Baby since 1975, they sound exactly like they always have and they are built like heavy duty trucks.

            I'm storing all the modeling stuff and building a new retro pedal board so a new Cry Baby definitely needs to be there. I've got Vox Wah pedals that are uniquely different so I don't really need a lot of knobs and switches on this one... just the real classic Cry Baby.

              like I said in the Title, great sounding pedal for the money, and sounds like true bypass, doesn't "Color" tone at all it not engaged.
