Original Fasel inductor
Heavy-duty die-cast construction
100kOhm Hot Pot potentiometer


This is pretty much, like all wah pedals, solid in terms of construction. But this one sounds especially killer thanks to the fasel inductor. Apparently one of it not the original inductors used in the crybaby's beginning stages of production in the 60s that made it sound oh so sweet. Not true bypass, most dunlop wahs are not.




UTILIZATION

Quite easy, just like every other wah, you click it on with your foot and rock'er back and forth to sweep through the sounds.

SOUND QUALITY

I haven't owned this pedal for a long time but have recently reviewed a few wahs and distinctly remember the classic sounding very very good. Why? It's probably the inductor that gives it the sound that it has. Again I can't tell you what it sounds like without comparing it to something as a reference, that seems to be what guitar players do almost all the time, it's gotta be a/b'ed. The classic screams! It's almost as if it's got more gain or adds some sort of boost to your guitar signal (on distortion of course) and it's got this killer top end that is JUST a level below being too shrill but cuts through like a knife. The background noise is also increased in the classic, which I actually like. It's got a sort of familiar feel to it when the background noise is there. To me, wahs are meant to add noise so you can go on and do crazy stuff, the less noise the less crazy sounds you can pull out in my opinion.

There just seems to be more presence and it's as if, for example if there was a mix knob of how much of the wah effect you want put into your guitar signal, compared to the regular crybaby, the mix on the classic would be at 100% while the mix for a regular GCB-95 would be maybe 60% or so. Just when you sweep it, the actual WAH sound is so big and present! Love it!

OVERALL OPINION

Overall great wah. I like the classic it's very effective and seems to be a lot bigger sounding with more sizzle and presence. It just seems to be more of a wah than the original crybaby. If you've got the extra dough to spend it's definitely worth looking into. I'm not saying that the original isn't good but just that the classic is better if you have the option. I like'em both for what they are, but if I had a choice, the classic would get my attention.
