Dunlop Cry Baby Reviews4.6/5.0 based on 21 customer reviews
It's hard to imagine what countless rock tunes would sound like without this pedal. Rock 'n Roll without the Crybaby would be like Harley without the growl. Every guitar player, band, and recording studio should have at least one of these in their arsenal.

Not much but growing!
Dunlop Cry BabyAfter learning, and practicing scales for awhile, I decided to "Go-For It".
Putting together the pedal board with electronic devices the professionals use, and after careful study of the numerous reviews, I went with the Cry Baby. In a short while I found that I made the right selection. What a neat Toy! Now I practice more without realizing the time. Like a whole new brain wave going on!

Best pedal everTHIS PEDAL IN AWSOME!!! I got this pedal as a gift, probaly would not have bought it on my own But when I played that first note I just fell in love with it. This pedal will never leave my pedalboard. Sure I dosent have all thoughs fancy nobs and bottons but you do't always need all that. The Cry Baby is an awsome pedal, every guitarist regardless of style should have this pedal.

love this thingwas gonna screw with modifications but the only one I had to make was cutting out half or all of some of the rubber bumpers under the toe and heel of the treadle for a wider sweep. Now it's just perfect. Vox Clyde McCoy does the zeppelin thing to a T, but this one's a little thicker, lower, and meaner sounding. The Clyde is more snarly and pissed off. I love the toe down fixed position on the Crybaby it's perfect Green Milk From The Planet Orange "City Calls Revolution" tone with distortion. this pedal goes so well with solos, and fuzz or distortion. Love it! Hardly any tweaking necessary to be superb.

SmoothJes like Jimi n Eric this pedal rocks...it can do the Shaft theme and it can sing with no crackling or squeaking...its got the good innards...if you wanna go deeper go to the next one up, around a C note, with the magic insides, but this one at around 70 smacks does us fine...

Possibly the coolest pedal you can have in your signal chainI had my first one for over 10 years. My second and current one is probably about 15 years old. I've been stepping on it for a looong time. That classic wah sound that everyone knows and loves is just a step away. If you step on it and just pull back on it a little and leave it in that position, it gives you that decibel boost and tone similar to the solo parts of Zep's "Whole Lotta Love" or the "UFO: Strangers in the Night" CD's lead guitar work that Michael Schenker did such a phenomenal job on. Its character is also similar to some Satriani and Vai sounds depending on what amp, tone and distortion settings you use. It really puts the boost on the screaming guitar sound and lets you add the wah effect however you feel it. As these get old, the pedal movement can get a little noisy, but I'm comfortable with the pedal and easily use the pedal without letting any noise become an issue. If it was a real problem, I'd be on my 3rd one instead of my second. I also like that it's battery powered. That's one less cable I need to run!

Cry Baby WahThe Cry Baby Wah is simple but effective. The predal is suprisingly responsive and easy to control with a broad range of differing tones by position or the ability to chop up your sound on rythm.
The tone is very true to the 60's and 70's Wahs but works well to fatten up a modern sound or add dimension to leads.

This RocksI bought this about 3 weeks ago with the money from my birthday becuase I was interested in learning Rage Against The Machine songs such as "Killing In The Name" and "Bulls On Parade". Whenever I play Killing In The Name to my friends or family they recognize it and they are blown away by the solo....so am I! Now I've started playing Metallica songs and it saounds just like the actual solo. Even the thing is pretty heavy for a foot pedal...it's a great buy, it's cheap but very cool. I highly recomend this as you get better.

Great Pedal Great ValueI first bought the 'Cry Baby pedal' when I was 17 and was learning 'Surfing with the Alien,' by Joe Satriani.
Obviously I wasnt made of money and when I started playing, it was awesome and opened up a new world of guitar sounds for my soloing and helped me achieve the sound i wanted for the song.
Just by altering the pedal you can boost your sound in particular frequencies and it really makes blastin out a solo bliss, all for a great price!

Good basic wahDoes what it's supposed to do. Seems well built and works fine. It is part of my backup rig in case something happens to my gigging gear, so I haven't put a lot of miles on it.

Rugged Basic WahI have had this pedal for about 3 years now and it still works perfectly. I have never had a problem with it. This pedal is a basic wah pedal. If you are more tone critical I would look at the Buddah wah or the Vox Clyde Wah. But this pedal has no difficulty getting it done and it is very reliable

Dunlop Rules!I owned one of these pedals years ago and lost it! So when I looked to get a replacement wah for my new band, I went right back to the best! The Cry Baby is a fantastic pedal, built like a brick house, and easy to use. It has the classic wah sound, is great for classic rock and modern rock as well. The pedal itself is very smooth, and it has great tone. It doesn't color your sound at all. With it's good sound, durability and reliability, it's a great choice!

Cry, baby cryI bought this pedal a few months ago just because it was a wah-wah, i thought "Well, every guitar player needs a wah pedal!" and i was right this pedal is awsome, and some people say it is overused but hey it's still awsome. the only problem with this pedal that when the battery starts to go the "Wah-e-ness" gets weaker but the simple solution is an adaptor. the other this is recently i've heared a vox wah-wah and personally i prefered it for more of a vintage tone. i think i'm gonna get one of them, but i'll never throw away my Crybaby.

ClassicThis Wah Pedal will take you back to a very classic 70's sound. It can also give you more creativity in your playing. I love this pedal and would replace it in a heart beat. Every guitarist should have one of these in their effects gear...Joker_B
