The Jim Dunlop 50th Anniversary Cry Baby Wah Effects Pedal is a limited-edition model that commemorates the pedal that has shaped the musical landscape, and gone on to define the careers of many guitar legends. Plated in a visually arresting 24k Gold and treated to the same impeccable rock-solid construction that has seen the GCB95 become the standard in the world of wah pedals since its introduction in the late 1960's, this is a very special pedal indeed.
The "Original" Wah
When people talk about wah pedals, they're talking about the Dunlop Cry Baby - guaranteed. This is the original, the one that created some of the most timeless sounds, riffs, and tones in the world of Rock music. Relied on by Jimi Hendrix e.g. "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)", Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, David Gilmour, and many other legends, these greats alone should prove the worth and fantastic quality of the Jim Dunlop Cry Baby.
Whilst build quality and components have improved since the original release, the same beating heart resides within the Cry Baby and continues to make it one of the most popular pedals to date. The beauty of the GCB95 Wah lies within its ability to give your rhythm and lead licks a powerful vocal quality. A simple scale run can be transformed thanks to some deft attenuation of the pedal, and soaring leads can take to the skies with glee. A 100KOhm Hot Potz potentiometer allows you to create a quick, abrupt wah sound to put your own stamp on your tone - literally!
All that is required to power this little beauty is an optional Dunlop ECB-003 AC adapter or a single 9V battery, and you're good to go for up to 100 hours of continuous use - perfect for long sessions in the studio and gigging without having to worry about swapping batteries on a nightly basis.
Completing the luxurious package, the Jim Dunlop 50th Anniversary Cry Baby Wah Effects Pedal in Gold comes in a special presentation box, enabling you to either use it, or treasure it in pristine condition for years to come.
