Dunlop: GCB-95 Cry Baby Original

Price paid: $ 45

Purchased from: eBay

Sound — 4
I use either an SG or Strat into my pedalboard(s). This wah is very noisy and sucks tone! I never really believed it until I tried it without it. It's at the front of my chain so it ruined it for all the other pedals too. Your signal, even while turned off is being run through all the buffering and is not worth using unless you get it modded for True Bypass. The sounds are ok, but it doesn't have a very vocal sweep, it's hard to hear the sweep.

Overall Impression — 4
I play really anything, but Pop-Rock and Alt-rock visiting the styles of U2, Radiohead, Mogwai, Jimmy Eat world, and others are what my band is compared to. I've been playing for 6 years and own tons of other equipment. this was my first pedal and i got it 4 years ago. if it were stolen/lost U'd buy a different one.

Reliability & Durability — 10
The adaptor doesn't seem very solid. I've used it in a few gigs and it seems to be built very well however.

Ease of Use — 8
Well, it is pretty is to use. For my OneSpot daisy chain I have to purchase an adaptor to fit the pedal however.
