crankyrayhanky's review"More than the Best Bass Wah!"

Dunlop 105Q Cry Baby Bass Wah
Bass Wah from the wah professionals over at Dunlap. Analog pedal with basic guitar cable in and outs.


The sound is awesome right out of the box. No need for a manual, other than it is interesting to note the q frequencies and volume controls.


I mainly use my 5 string Ibanez Soundgear Bass, but have since found that pedal excels for electric guitar too! There is a Q setting that allows a huge variety of wah tones, from the deeper (and below) tones of the Jimi wah to the higher voiced (and above) tones of the Morley Bad Horsie. There is an adjustment for volume, so one can get a wah that even with the original signal or go anywhere from a gentle boost (my preferred) to an aggressive volume boost. I believe this pedal has a high pass in the circuitry, allowing the lower eq tones to go untouched while the mid and highs receive the wah. I'm not sure if there are any other wahs out there with this feature (?) I typicall detune my guitar anywhere from E down to drop Ab, so having this hipass is probably the reason i really love this pedal on guitar. I bought it for my bass, but eventually it surpassed my original Dunlap, Jimi Dunlap, and Morley Bad Horsie. It helps that this Dunlap has the auto on/off feature that was previously only on my Morley (Dunlap now has a few pedals like this). This auto on/off is a HUGE asset for playing live- I like the Dunlap Original and jimi, but how many times did I thin "Is this pedal engaged" and they proceed to toggle on and off...this hampers creativity and performance. I love the auto, the hi pass and the tone is Dunlap-awesome.


This is a must have for any bass player, it adds a great character and provides a cool "swimming sensation". I love using wah for just a few notes at a time (rather than lengthy passages), so the auto off is an invaluable characteristic. There is nothing to note that I liked least, this pedal has been my goto for guitar and bass for many years now. I toured hard with it locally, so I grabbed a second pedal and this one has held up admirably. For bass, there is no other choice. For guitar, I may look into a the Dunlap Q wah, as it seems to have similar features but built for guitar. That being said, the hi pass on the low frequencies is something I have bonded with- I don't like a wah that just sweeps over and takes over the whole tone with a dramatic impact...that's good for an occassional effect, but too much for full usage. The hi pass allows pure bass tone to remain. This pedal is nailed to my board. Best review I've made; I love this wah!

MGR/ShackMan's review"Dunlop 105Q Crybaby"

Dunlop 105Q Cry Baby Bass Wah
To my knowledge there's only one version of this unit available. It's white, with rocking, spring-loaded pedal, so it always returns to zero and shuts off as soon as you let your foot off of it. It has two knobs on the side to adjust the depth of the wah and the volume with the effect turned on.
As for myself, I'm about to graduate college with a degree in music, playing bass and piano. I've been playing in and arranging for bands, musicals, and writing tunes for various rock and pop groups in the area for some time now.

I got it along with an Electro Harmonix Mini Q-Tron at Piaons 'n' Stuff in Blawnox, PA, for just under $100. I can't remember the exact number, but it was definitely under $100. I bought it just for fun, because I wanted to try one out and I thought it could make a great addition to my effects board, which, before then, only contained a Tech 21 Sansamp that I used off and on. I'd say the biggest influence on my purchase would be hearing players like Bootsy Collins, Justin Chancellor, and Justin Meldal Johnson, work these effects like crazy. I wanted to do the same thing.

I like the various configurations and customization available with the volume and Q controls. Generally, when I want to use an effect, I want it to be big enough that everyone notices that I've turned something on. But sometimes, I just want it to disappear in the background. It can also be a great way to sound like you have the tone rolled way off in a quiet section by turning the volume down and holding your foot in one position on the pedal. Those two knobs, to me, make ALL the difference between this pedal and just about any other pedal on the market. It also, I think, manages to reproduce a bass-y signal through the full spectrum of the wah effect, giving it a full sound, not anything nasally like other pedals I've tried. (These 'other pedals' included, but were not limited to: Morley, Ibanez, and the Rockron Utopia. I found very little about them satisfactory. I even tried the guitar wahs as well with the same problem. There was ONE wah pedal, however, that I found, that could stand up to and in some ways best the Dunlop: the EBS WahOne. The only reason I didn't buy that pedal on the spot was the extra money it cost at the time. It has since largely come down in price, and I think it's the best wah on the market right now. EBS has never let me down with a single product yet.)
The fact that the adapter comes with it is pretty awesome too, though I recommend just getting a powered pedalboard and an extension cord/surge protector.

There are rare times where I miss being able to leave the pedal in one place and let go to do other things with other effects. But those instances are few and far between, and I usually am very thankful for the spring-loaded rocking pedal. This complaint is minor at its worst. The only actual complaint I have is that I would like the knobs on the side to be just a bit more accessible to users for on the fly adjustments. Dunlop did well to keep them out of the way (so they have much less chance of breaking off on rough days), but making them just a bit larger could make a good deal of difference live, I think.

It'll put a hole in my wall before it'll get a scratch on it. I was worried about the white paint looking dirty when I bought it, but there isn't a single mark on it. It's heavy enough for me to believe that it's probably some kind of steel. I'm not worried about it breaking at all. I've had it for about 8 years and it still looks like it's in pristine condition and works perfectly.

It's only competition is the EBS Wah-One, and that's a very different design: namely, it's a switched pedal, where the Dunlop is switchless. It's unparalleled as a bass-wah otherwise in terms of tone and simplicity and efficiency of design. For $110, or even $210, you probably couldn't do any better than this pedal. Go ahead and compare it to the boutiques, too; I'll stand by it after they stop making them. As far as I'm concerned it's the best there is.

MGR/BIGBASSBOB's review"Jim Dunlop 105Q Bass Crybaby Wah"

Dunlop 105Q Cry Baby Bass Wah
Got it for about £90 in Creative Electronics (local guitar shop.) I was after a good wah for bass that would work well with Fuzz and clean.

The construction. The sound.
It sounds very wah-ee. It has an Auto Q, so it turns off once u take ur foot off it. Volume and Tone controls so u can change the overall effect it has on ur signal. It looks cool and sounds the shizz on stage with a bright Fuzz.

It has a delay on it wen the auto q kicks in to stop it turning off while u rock it (violently i guess.) It was a pain in the arse till i realised u can turn it off by turning a pot inside the casing, although i think this voids the warantee. It has ALOT of bass with the heel down, so just be careful. Apart from that, its sound.

Very good. Better than Boss in some aspects.

Very good wah, but unless u play music thats phycadelic or funky or want a Cliff Burton-esqe pedal for screaming overdrive solos, i say its not worth it to fiddle with in the bedroom. I use it alot, and its my favourite effect along with comp and fuzz. Id DEFINATELY buy one again if something happened to it.

MGR/Shifty Shellshock's review"Jim Dunlop 105Q Crybaby Bass Wah"

Dunlop 105Q Cry Baby Bass Wah
My Music Teach gave this to me cause he just bought a line6 pod and didnt need his wah.

funky effect, seeing as i play alot of red hot chili peppers and funk like grooves, definatly a good effect.

its not auto wah so you have to press down on it every time you hit a note which can be a pain because i play very fast bass funk lines, so this was a major problem.

Looks like a brick, heavy like a brick feels like a brick, builts like a brick. If i breaks id be surprised.

If your into funk go and grab this or a DOD Envelope filter for 50 bucks cheaper. At least the DOD is auto. So if your into fast playing dont get this! but smooth playing go and get it!
