Anyone here have a Dunlop Crybaby wah pedal? i'd like to get one kuz my Digitech RP300A doesnt get quite the wah tone im looking for. Any opinions on which Crybaby? I'd use it for Metallica, Hendrix, GnR, Velvet Revolver, Zeppelin, etc.

also, just out of curiosity, has anyone tried the Slash wah?? I've wanted to try one but no shops around me have it. I know its ridiculously expensive but its it any good?

Get an expensive Jim Dunlop wah, like a 535Q, not the standard GCB 95 (which is what I have, unfortunately) and is only any use for clean tones, in my opinion, whereas the 535Q has a knob that you can turn to get lots of different tones.

Oh, and Hendrix used a GCB 95 in his early days then switched to a Vox Clyde McCoy wah, Slash uses a Crybaby though I don't know anything more specific than that, and I'm not too sure about the others.

GCB95 (Original Crybaby) = only get it if you plan on modding it extensively
GCB95F (Classic Crybaby) = good
535Q = good
Dimabage = good
Zakk Wylde = its prettymuch the same as the GCB95F with 1 or 2 components values changed, overpriced because of this
Hendrix = good
Slash = I'd say way overpriced, in that pricerange you'd allready be looking at Fulltones, Teeses, Buddahs, etc... anyway

the parts they used have changed A LOT over the past 40 years the internal workings for most of the Dunlop and Vox wahs are prettymuch the same, just bells and whistles added onto the Dunlops (buffers, controllable parameters, boosts....)

Dunlop first started building wahs as Vox's American distributer of sorts


Slash uses the $500 Dunlop custom rackmount wah thing with the multiple controllers but with his new sig. pedal things seem to have changed. I think I also spotted him using something else in some video.

I have the Original CryBaby (GCB950). It is a very good wah pedal, but I like the Zakk Wylde Wah better because of the extra bottom tone to it.

That looks... way too complicated for me! What mods have you done to it?

My 535q is amazing. I can get anything from a good funky tone to a streight-up wah for that GnR stuff.

adjustable voicing, adjustable sweep, adjustable mid and bass gain, volume pedal/wah pedal toggle switch, and I added a red Fasel inductor.

yeah dunlop made him a signature Wah. its got built in distortion. it looks like it would be a damn awesome wah, but its ridiculously expensive, something like 180 bucks.. might be worth it though, idk ive never tried one
