    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:

      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).

      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.

                    Bought by first cry-baby in 1979. The new one I just got is just as well built and sounds the same as my old one. Dunlop still makes the best wah on the planet.

                        Had one back in the early 2000's, sold it and all my other electric equipment. Getting back into the electric thing and this is the first effects pedal I had to buy.
                        Always had a blast making noise with my wah pedal.
                        Won't be selling my electric stuff again, least of all this pedal.
