Wah not?

Why not try the BOSS GCB95 Cry Baby? Everyone out there either plays one already or tries hard, to no avail, in imitating this classic. I've had this one for a year now and I have hooked this thing up in just about every configuration possible (well with the gear I have at least) and it has been pure bliss. So Wah not?


This pedal is awesome. Very durable and we'll built. The sound is just what I was looking for. Bought one for my brother as well. He thinks it is awesome to.

Crybaby wah

The pedal is perfect for all brass and harmonicas. Cant get enough of this sound. I've got 6 pedals that I use but this one is my favorite. I got the idea listening to a Brecker Brothers album. So I went out and bought one. It knocked me out the first time I used it. Been with it ever since. If you play trumpet, get yourself one.

Possibly the coolest pedal you can have in your signal chain

I 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!

Jes like Jimi n Eric this pedal 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...

Sweetwater Advice

Yuval Fuchs

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.
