Hey i was at a gig last nite and talking (drunkenly) to anoter guitarist who uses a crybaby gcb-95 like me, but he gets a much better sound than me.

so when i asked him how he sed he opened it up and turned a white nob or something and got a better sound.

iv since opened mine and there is no white nob! lol

if anyone could help i would be really grateful

thanks tobz

there are a ton of mods that you can do to that pedal, that improve it's tone GREATLY.I performed a lot of the mods on this page: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/s.castledine/greenfuz/wah.html and my pedal sounds a LOT better than stock. Maybe he was talking about the pot under the footpedal, if it's sweeping too high or low, you can adjust how it moves on the teeth. You would be much better off performing a couple of the mods too though, they really make a big difference. I have a before and after clips using the GCB-95 on a GNX4. Nothing changed except the wah. They are at http://erock503.dmusic.com listed under "GCB-95 wah mods".

theres a mod that i did where you unscrew a screw in the pedal that holds the needle thing so it can move. if you unscrew it, you can move something to make the range higher or lower.

sorry for my horrible explanation and termonology

+1 on the horrible explanation.

^ He's talking about the Easy range adjustment.

Once I had completed all the mods on that page, I did that adjustment and it helped considerably by getting rid of the harsh highs. If you do this one its very sensitive, you only need to turn it a few notches and it'll be fixxed.

I listened to those soundclips...and ****, the difference in tone is incredible. I'll definitely be doing some mods myself once I get my Crybaby.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

thanks Archeo, yeah, it's a big difference, those clips can't even show how much of an improvement it actually is. I was using it in front of a GNX4, and I'm still just a beginner/intermediate player, but an experienced player through a real amp would be able to show how much the mods "really" do improve it. Very much worth the time and $15 in parts, I think you will be very happy with the difference, especially if you are a more advanced player. The true bypass alone makes a major difference with it sitting in your fx chain when it's off, you can really hear the difference.
