Dunlop Crybaby Classic GCB95 F

Wah Wah Pedal

There would not be much to say about Dunlop wah wah pedals if there were not so many different models. At the end of the day, almost every guitarist worth naming has one on his pedalboard at some point or other.

The Cry Baby Classic Wah represents the classic wahs from the '60s and, like the original, it is made with the old Italian Fasel coils, which provide that soft, musical character. This makes it especially suitable for clean and distorted sounds, such as the legendary rhythm that we of the older generation still remember from the Shaft soundtrack, or from the soundtrack of "The Streets of San Francisco".

Whaka, whaka; if you can coordinate your hands and feet (you will need a bit of practice at the beginning) you can really kick butt with this pedal. - An extremely and suspiciously cult wah wah!

  • The classic from the '60s
  • With the original Fasel coils
  • For the vibe of the '60s
  • True bypass
  • Suitable power supply unit (Thomann NT AC/PSA, article number 409939) optional

The Original Sounding Wah!

D. Facelift, 02.06.2013
I have used many Wah pedals in the last 4 years or so of playing. My playing style has progressed as I've specifically started listening to the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Alice in Chains more. At gigs with other bands playing, I've had the opportunity to use different Wahs such as the Vox Wah and Rocktron Wahs. The Vox Wah required clicking a button to turn it on before using it which was a big setback, plus it was too sharp sounding. The Rocktron Wah just didn't compare to the Cry Baby in terms of quality of sound, the coherency or it's ease of use (It didn't compare to the Vox Wah in those terms too, as a matter of fact!). When I was first thought how to use the Cry Baby by a fellow local Guitarist, I fell in love with it right away. I don't know whether it was just the pedal, the Guitarist playing it was amazing too but he had mastered it and ever since then, I had wanted one.

When I was browsing through different music shops, I found the Cry Baby GCB95 F which is just the modern, cheaper version of this. I asked around and tried it out but it just wasn't the same as the 'Classic' model. People had told me that it had to do with the Fasel coils in it. I hate buying things out of popularity of it so this was stuff was important to me to know. It's a big reason why i bought this one specifically.

I bought it off Thomann and have been using it A LOT ever since. My band and I have written quite a few songs recently and I have been using it in them in different ways. I'm not the great soloing Guitarist that I should be, I'm still learning. Though with the things I do know how to do on the guitar, I can get the most amazing sounds using this pedal, usually mixed with another pedal. I'm still trying to get used to it fully, but that's part of the fun of it! People at our shows have noticed it's use and are usually in awe of the sound it makes while I play, even if I'm doing something very simple.

I love the pedal and would recommend it to anyone thinking of buying one. The only drawback from it that I can think of is that it's not the most versatile of pedals. I play a lot of different styles and genres of music and I can use it for most but not in a big capacity for some of it and sometimes it just sits there, not being used for a lot of songs onstage. Perfect for blues and metal Guitarists, not so great with pop rock!

Hope this is a good review and hope it helps, thanks!

What a great sound!

02.01.2016
I don't use many pedals in a gig situation but this is one pedal I'll be bringing to every gig. The sound I get with this in front of my Orange amp is full, warm and just what I was looking for.

Its built like a tank, but the pedal action became loose after a few gigs which is an easy fix but could become pretty annoying if you had to do this often.

Overall a great pedal to add to any pedalboard for both the minimalist and the hoarder. Something to note however is that when the pedal is engaged it does add a bit of a boost to your signal. If you are using the amps distortion (I dont know if this is the same when using OD pedals) it tends to add a noticeable bit of gain to your tone as well as a little boost in volume .. for me this is perfect as its used primarily for lead parts but something to consider.
