"A bit too harsh/noisy for me"

The Dunlop GCB95F Crybaby Classic is basically the industry standard when it comes to a typical "wah pedal" design. Dunlop has been making Crybaby wahs for many years and this GCB95F is just the modern day version. It's housed in a typical metal casing, fairly durable. There is a 9V output for an adapter or one can put a battery inside as well. Unlike some of the more modern wahs that exist which contain fasel adjustment or controls to adjust volume or tone, the Crybaby Classic only has a metal switch to turn the pedal on. It's pretty simple and easy to use overall and makes for some cool tones.


Setting up this pedal requires nearly nothing. As there are no controls to deal with other than its on/off switch, it's really quite easy to get tones happening out of the Crybaby Classic. The range of the pedal is pretty good and goes from a very thick and bassy tone, through the classic Michael Schenker "cocked wah" tone to a very bright and biting tone that's almost like the amp was hit with a treble booster of some sort. The only thing that can confuse some new users is where to plug your guitar cables in. The labeling for instrument and amplification jacks isn't the easiest to see on the Crybabies and it can cause confusion when no sound emits from the pedal...


The sound quality of this pedal is decent enough for someone who just wants a generic wah tone. It can sound a bit harsh when depressed fully and gets a bit wooly/muffled sounding when it's all the way up. There are basic electronic mods that people can do to this pedal to make the sweep a little bit less drastic, and I've tried those as well with decent results. Also, I found the GCB95F to be a rather noisy unit when compared to some higher end wahs. This isn't a big deal if you're just a beginning player or a casual wah user, but if you want something for a pro rig, this isn't one I'd look at.


All in all I think the Dunlop GCB95F is a decent wah for the hobby player or someone who just wants a wah for occasional use. It's priced pretty well and they're also quite durable. The tones are passable as stock, but not something I would gravitate towards myself due to the harsher nature of the tone and the additional noise I found. If you want a barebones wah for not a lot of cash, give the Dunlop GCB95F a look and get cryin'!
