This is a more classic variation of the standard Crybaby (propably as a counterproduct to the Vox vintage wahs)
It is a standard crybaby with a higher frequency range and a sharper attack so it is perfect for blues, classic rock and funk where you want that legendary *Whaka, whaka* rythm sound. I think it works great for Hendrix like stuff but if you intend to use it under high gain and possibly with downtunings then this pedal will get muddy and sound too sharp - if you intend to use it under moderate gain and want a classic wah tone, then go for it!

It's a good pedal, a standard one, can't make a mistake with it. I would recommend 535Q tho, because it has Q control so you can make the sweep more aggressive.

The 535q is better but also almost twice as expenisve. I think there is a version of GCB95 with a real fasel inductor - it will sound even better than the standard one!

I've got one, sounds good but sucks a bit tone when turned off.

I will replace it with a true bypass wah in the future, like the 535Q Ivan mentions above, no hurries though as I don't use it that much wink.gif

Here's a 535q review by Ivan himself:

I agree that this is perfect for funk and blues, but if you want an aggresive, soloing Vai type of wah, it won't do

Vai used the classic crybaby in the late 80's/early 90's so I don't think I can agree on this one. smile.gif (As well as Malmsteen, Satriani, etc..)


I have this model too and it covers virtually everything. It has very large sweep and that unmistakable crybaby sound. The only fault is the switch - it can get "stuck" it you are gentle with the pedal, so you need to use brute force to ensure it will click successfully. laugh.gif

Sure, there are much better pedals, but if you want a basic wah, you can't beat this baby. I used to have a Vox V847, and the Dunlop is 100 times better IMO.

Its a classic pedal and sounds good on funky mellow stuff. If you want more versatility go for 535Q.. smile.gif
