Dunlop offers a wide range of effects pedals, sure to help send your stage act to new and outstanding levels. Whether you’re jamming in the garage or in front of thousands of fans, there’s a Dunlop pedal to help pinpoint your singular sound. Dunlop was founded in 1965 in California and has the well-deserved reputation of offering absolute ‘cream of the crop’ equipment. Over the years they have acquired a number of notable brands of pedals, including Heil Talkbox, Way Huge Electronics, MXR and of course the highly recognizable Cry Baby wah-wah. These lines of pedals have been used for decades by some of the most recognizable names in music including Dave Navarro, Metallica, Billy Idol, ZZ Top, Dave Matthews, Evanescence and Linkin Park to name a few. You’re in very impressive company with Dunlop pedals.
One thing that distinguishes Dunlop is their long-standing history of collaborating with famous musicians to create signature pedals. If you’re a fan of the Seattle grunge scene, the JC95 Jerry Cantrell Signature Cry Baby Wah pedal is a terrific option. This antique-looking brass pedal is custom voiced for a tight, punchy tone and darker response reminiscent of Cantrell’s unique sound. If you favour pure classic rock, take a look at the SW-95 Cry Baby Slash wah pedal. Distinctive and iconic just like Slash, this bold metallic-red pedal has a high gain distortion circuit, an upper midrange bite and cool sparkle on the wah. If Van Halen is more your wheelhouse, try the black and yellow striped EVH95 Eddie Van Halen signature wah pedal, with a well-defined middle range, true hardwire bypass and low end sweep.
Legendary artist Jimi Hendrix needs to be mentioned as well. Considered the ‘master of the fuzz’, Dunlop created the JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Pedal, an intricate reconstruction of the pedal he used in the 60’s and 70’s. Dunlop further experimented with his unmistakable octave tone with the JH-OC1 Hendrix Octavio pedal, an exact clone of the vintage pedal he used.
Whether you’re an up-and-coming artist on the music circuit, a seasoned pro, or picking up a guitar for the first time, there’s no doubt a Dunlop effects pedal can help fine tune your craft. After setting the bar for outstanding and innovative gear for over 40 years, there is an undoubtedly an effects pedal here that is right for you.
