52 pedals, week 25—Dunlop Cry Baby Wah Mini

There has been one thing most pedals in my wish list have had in common. Their pedal board footprint. Most guitars are the same size. There’s generally one recognised exception. An acceptable exception if you will. The wah pedal. What if you don’t have a lot of spare real estate on your pedal board though? What if you have tiny feet and you don’t your pedal to give you a complex? Well you can be like Krusty The Clown from The Simpsons and wear oversized shoes or you can get the Dunlop Cry Baby Wah Mini. The latter is easier and cooler. I’d recommend that.

The Dunlop Cry Baby Wah Mini may be much smaller than the traditional Cry Baby Wah, but it’s not a pedal that skimps on the good stuff. No, it’s still a sturdy and stomp-worthy pedal. It’s true bypass like you’d expect it to be and it comes with three internally adjustable voicings—Low, Vintage and GCB95. It also comes equipped with the Fasel inductor and a full sweep range.

Apart from the three-way switch that allows you to choose the voicing you’ll go with, this pedal is as basic as they come. No other knobs to set. Stomp, then rock back and forth to achieve your desired wah sound. Simple.

It’s the pedal everyone craves in a tinier package. That’s all there is to it really. Look, listen and decide whether you’d want one. I know I do.

Disclaimer: I’ve not played this guitar pedal. I have not experienced first-hand the sound or effects of this guitar pedal. That doesn’t matter. It looks awesome, it’s obviously played by winners and I want one.
