      Two pedals in one!

      Like the guitarist himself, the Dunlop SW-95 Slash Cry Baby Wah is revolutionary and a classic at the same time. It sports a hot rod, metallic-red finish and a cutting edge, high gain circuit for a different and distinct sound. It also has a modified Fasel inductor for sweet, singing top end and upper midrange bite and sparkle on the wah. 18V operation yields tons of extra headroom. LED indicators for distortion on/off and wah on/off modes keep you clued in at all times. Top hat not included.

      Features

            The SW-95 has been my wah of choice for more than five years and is a great addition to anyone's set-up. Even though it's geared more towards aggressive playing styles, it still maintains a high level of versatility for most genres and tones.

            While the wah tone isn't as smooth as say, the KH-95, it's niche is that is has more bite and cuts through the mix better than many of the wahs on the market without sounding thin or nasally.

            The most common complaint that I've read is that the distortion channel can't be used unless the wah is engaged. This isn't a stand-alone distortion pedal. The distortion setting produces great tones, and is the more underrated feature of this pedal. When used with a clean tone, the distortion setting favors the wah more, so it sounds like a wah being used in front of a distortion pedal. When used with an amp's distortion or an OD pedal, this channel can serve as a great boost. Players will need to dial back the volume and gain of the pedal, but that goes without saying.

            The pedal is very durable. In the time that I've owned it, I haven't had to repair it once. The battery life is surprisingly long, despite it requiring two 9 volt batteries. The LED lights indicating when the wah/distortion are engaged is also a great feature. I can't recommend this pedal enough.

            I can only give it a six as whole unit it only lives up to 50% of what its supposed to do. Yes on a 4x12 cab it may not sound so high gain but on anything smaller it sounds like crap as a distortion pedal.
            I have had the pedal for about three weeks now and practiced about 4 hours a day with it maybe a little less.

            I love the wah but the distortion to me sounds like a cheap knock off pedal. Its great for the 5 watt long ditance mic sound like green day start some songs with. But as a distortion pedal meh. Plus you have to have the Wah engaged to operate it. Why cant it be a standard distortion pedal. Its ok a boost but my Keeley Katana kills it as far as a clean or slightly over driven boost.

            The 18v is a bit of a kicker as well. maybe if they ran two 9v inputs into it would make more sense for those of us who dont want to buy a whole new power pack.

            Yeah for the price Im regretting it. I should have gone with a standard wah.
            Ive tried it on my three amps A MESA TA-15 a TA-30 and a HRD 2 all of them it will feedback if the gain is turned on at the amp. Any one who says otherwise is loving the feedback this distortion is giving.

            I have a TC Dark Matter that adds depth and warmth to the sound not such a tinny high high gain as the Slash. Ill just use it as a Wah

            I liek that the battery compartment in on top. I dont like that the feet dont come off with out the screws and then the screws are too long to go in flat. sucks trying to put it on my pedal board. I play proffesionally around the world in different settings I'd prefer it to suit all those settings and not just huge triple and dual rectifiers.
            It is pretty good as far as quality
            Cos the distortion is basically useless. I have to say the quality is meh not good

            Comments about Dunlop SW-95 Cry Baby Slash Wah Pedal:

            I had gotten this wah a few years ago before I had the gear knowledge that I did now. It is a fun addition to the pedalboard and certainly has had its uses. It has a pretty decent range which allows me to give some nice sweepable swells.

            The downside is that the distortion has been completely useless with any amps i have owned (vox valvetronix, marshall mg100hdfx, bugera v22, and my current Engl Powerball 2). It also has a pretty audible pop when you engage and disengage the pedal. Not terrible, but for the price you should check out a few other options.

            This pedal was a huge dissapointment! Terrible tone! I play through a Marshal with a PRS Custom and it just produces the worst noise. The feed back doesn't even stop if I turn my volume on my guitar all the way down. HORRIBLE waste of money. I have the Kirk Hammet Wah and that one is GREAT! Sorry for the bad review but people need to know.

                Dual Mode Wah in Red from Dunlop

                Comments about Dunlop SW-95 Cry Baby Slash Wah Pedal:

                Buy if you really want a beautiful bright Red Wah Wah Pedal with a distortion circuit if you need to reduce the effects you carry around. More for beginners who are discovering their tone and sound, not the holy grail of making you sound like SLASH - which it won't. Dunlop quality will give you confidence that the Pedal will always be there for you.
                Dual Mode Wah Wah with Distortion switch great for beginners who want both effects in one pedal and hope that plugging this pedal in will give you that SLASH sound. Buy the AC Power and save on the Dual 9V Power requirement that will eat up your battery budget.
                Like all Dunlop Wah's the construction is heavy duty quality, nice weight to foot action and smooth sweep. The Distortion activation switch is a small button top located on the lower right side that turn on with your foot. I hope it holds up under constant use.
                The Distortion sound is OK but not much variation in tone and complexity. There are many other Dual Mode Wah Pedals to consider with better OD/Distortion Circuits for a few extra dollars.

                Amazing Wah Pedal

                Comments about Dunlop SW-95 Cry Baby Slash Wah Pedal:

                First off every video and almost every review I have seen/read has knocked this pedal. I seriously dont see what the fuss is about the wah sounds increadible and it even sounds better with the distortion. This pedal doesnt hiss although that may be because I have a noise suppressor in my rig, but the knobs on the side and very durable and quick to get to in a live situation. I run this bad boy with the distortion on all the time as a boost, and in my band when we play Sweet Child O Mine I use the distortion during the wah part of the solo. Its not muddy and it doesnt color the tone of the wah and you must try the pedal on your lead channel during sound check to find the sweet spot for the knobs (gain and Volume). Due to different acoustics and where you are playing at depends on how much gain you should dial up. Great pedal overall no complaints and its built like a tank love this pedal would recomend it to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!

                Great Pedal

                By Anonymous-Igc.h

                from Pomeroy, OH

                Comments about Dunlop SW-95 Cry Baby Slash Wah Pedal:

                Ok, first off, any person who says that the wah pedal hisses and feeds back is completely inept because they obviously didn't realize that the pedal has two setting. Yes, there is a setting that boosts the gain and adds extra distortion, but there is also a normal wah setting. If you know how to adjust the gain and distortion knobs that are clearly labeled on the pedal, you should have no problem getting rid of the hiss and feedback, or if you're like me you kind of like it in the right song and leave it that way, either way its not a poorly made pedal. This wah has the largest dynamic range of any wah pedal I have ever used. I played on my friend's classic crybaby and couldn't even stand to use it compared to my Slash wah. The boost setting (switchable by a small push switch located on the side of the pedal that is easily pressed with your foot) allows you to get that great Red Hot Chili Peppers tone or to simply boost your gain and you have almost total control over the amount of added gain or distortion because of the control knobs. Plus the blue and red lights just add flavor. I love my Slash wah and will never use another.
