Yeah I've got one and I must say I really like the tone I've tweaked in for myself. And it's possible to accomplish any tone you like really. For a neutral tone that doesn't stick out turn the LOw control to zero and be carful on the Q. And for a phat phat tone set the Range to "low" and LOw control to 10 for plenty of low end.

It's sturdy and won't break easily.

The pedal can be kicked on/off or, as I always have it set, to go on when I press the pedal and off as I lift my foot off and the pedal is springed back to it's resting position .

It has only one downside, it drains a battery way too fast. I've used a 170mAh rechargable battery and it drains in 5 hours only. A regular 200-220mAh 9V will run for a couple more hours but it's still bad. The Dunlop simplest Cry Baby runs 10 times as long as the Weeping Demon.
I guess you have to have some drawback for all the giggles and whistles it comes with, and battery time is it but I rather have a killer Crybaby with short battery time then the otherway around.

So for rehearsal I always use an adaptor with it. If I was giging every night and had to pay for my own batteries I wouldn't be as happy though. Then I'd use a Dunlop Crybaby which isn't as interesting on tone nor functionality, same with an old Morley I had which was ok but not more, didn't reach up to Dunlop tone.


For tone, 10/10
Battery time -1 on the over all rating, 9/10.
