Hatsubai's review"Nice features and good price"

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
People have been wanting a wah pedal that was in between the GCB95 and the 535Q. This is the pedal that Dunlop decided to make. It looks similar to the other pedals, and that's because it is. It is basically a stripped down 535Q. It has the standard on/off switch and housing, but there are two extra knobs on this to adjust the Q and to adjust the overall volume/boost. These two features help make it a very versatile wah without having to shell out the money for the more expensive ones on the market.


Dunlop did a pretty good job with this. The knobs are laid out nicely, and it's easy to see what everything does. There's no need for a manual for this, and to be honest, I never looked at it, so I couldn't tell you how well it is written. They're fairly well known for being quite detailed, though. The pedal itself is housed in a tank of an enclosure. The only problem that ever really occurs with these is a scratchy pot. That happens after years and years of dust/dirt/grime get inside of the pedal. The boost knob on the side of the pedal can be a bit of a pain to hit at times, but it's not a big deal.


The sound is very much like the GCB95 in that it has that standard Crybaby type of sound. However, the added Q knob gives you some extra versatility that you wouldn't normally get from the standard wah pedal. It allows you to adjust the Q frequency to give you some extra versatility. There is a boost feature on this, but if you have a saturated amp, you most likely won't hear much of an actual volume increase. Instead, you'll hear more compression and maybe slightly more gain. That's why the volume feature may or may not be what you're expecting.


This is a pretty good wah pedal, and I recommend it to people who don't want to get the 535Q. I generally believe either the 535Q or the Dimebag wah are the two best wah pedals that Dunlop makes, but if you're looking for something a bit stripped down, try checking this out. Be sure to buy used as they almost never fail.

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
Dunlop Original Crybaby Wah Pedal Features at a Glance:

* The original Dunlop Crybaby Wah effects pedal
* Used by greats — from Hendrix to Clapton to Gilmour and beyond
* Heavy-duty diecast construction for years of reliability
* 100K ohm Hot Potz potentiometer that allows for that quick, abrupt wah sound
* Powered by the optional Dunlop ECB-003 AC Adapter and/or 9 volt battery


Very simple, plug in to the in out jacks, step on it and rock back and forth.


well, its a wah, back is "wwww" and forward is "aahhh" .

As far as wah's go it definitely is not the cream of the crop, infact I'd say this is one of the worst production wahs on the market, especially for the price, it sucks tone like a mother and really doesn't sound that good. The sweep of it is OK at best and really is just very mediocre.

now...the only reason I see to buy this is to mod it. now, modded. this thing is amazing, infact i'd take it over many many wahs, it sounds great, and you have total control over it and how you want it to sound. Now given that this is only if you have some experience modding pedals, but if you do, pick one of these up for 15 - 30 dollars USD new and mod the heck out of it, its totally worth it then.

By it self I'd give it a 3, modded it gets and 8, I'll give it a 7 overall in this catagory


overall, its a really junky wah even for the price, but if you have the intention of modding it I suggest you get it and as soon as you get it, open it up, find some schems and have at it, you'll be impressed, I promise!

MGR/Derek Mok's review"Dunlop 95Q Crybaby Wah"

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
Bought from Musician's Friend for $119.

Large number of controls. Volume boost button. And it's a classic wah.

The on-off toe switch is very, very hard to use. Why is there no easily visible "on/off" light indicator? I have to do a St. Vitus' dance just to figure out if my wah is on. The control settings also don't seem to make a whole lot of sense. They are also very hard to operate as you're using the wah, since they're on the side. Wish they could have made those controls foot-switchable somehow.

Good, but the on/off button is not very responsive. I also don't think the expression pedal takes kindly to transportation, and the box that comes with the pedal doesn't give *any* protection. (Dunlop is being cheap in this department -- Electro-Harmonix, for example, gives a wooden box for its Big Muff.) So diligence is required when you're shipping this pedal.

I rarely use this pedal. That's more because I'm not much of a wah person, and the sounds I get from the 95Q are good. However, I also think that if the designs were better (the on/off switch, especially), I would be much more inclined to learn how to use it, just as I figured out Floyd Rose trems, delay pedals, Steinbergers, and my Korg D12 digital multitracker.

MGR/Donovan's review"Dunlop 95Q Wah Wah"

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
I purchased it through musician's for $109.95, I had been to the local guitar shop a few weeks earlier and tested it out there, but they charged WAY too much for it. I found it for alot cheaper, so I bought it.-Simple eh?

What I really enjoyed was that you can get alot out of this pedal. You can get the cliche porno music "Chikachika-wahwah-chika-wahwah", or by adjusting the "Variable Q" knob on the left side, you can alot more low end, and by turning it up, you can get more of a high end. Once distorted, this thing is a MONSTER. On the back righthand sire there is a little red button thats a 15db Gain Boost, Right when you want or need to be louder than everyone else, you can. I love the way it sounds, you don't even have to do anything. I swear, you can just hold your strings, not letting them vibrate, and push it all the way forward...*ta-dah*,Instant feedback. What was even cooler was by playing a note, and holding it for more than a few seconds, you can get feedback in different keys and notes (great for ending a song). Its really nice. Just imagine, the love child of Morley and VOX. Thats the best way I can describe it. This thing does whatever you want it to do, no questions asked, just set it to your liking, and play.

I've looked,listened, and played over and over, and I've yet to find any flaws.

Brand new. very solid and heavy die cast construction, which makes for many years of good use.

This is one of the most important parts of my arsenal. The only things more important are my guitars, and amps! It does what you want it to do. Its reliable, the wires aren't cheaply made, the battery compartment's jack is not some cheap little rubber dealy hanging on by 2 thread-like wires, its a solid piece of plastic with nice, thick wires. This thing won't die on you. It lasts, and is ideal for anyone who uses a wah.

MGR/Demian kaus's review"Dunlop Crybaby gcb-95q"

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
I bought it for $150 in buenos aires.

The sound and the range is magnific.
In all the positions you have very diferent sounds.
At top you have added harmonics and nassal sound and in the bottom metallic sound.
great for use whit overdrive and chorus.
the vol. difference between dry and bypassed signal is good.

The high frequencies are so high and very metallic but its ok.Eats a lot of battery.To change battery you have to remove the 4 screws.

Black Steel gives strenght and years of use and abuse!!!!

Great rock wah.great also for funk and disco liks!!!
The best wah.The Hendrix,Clapton...etc wah.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Dunlop CryBaby 95Q"

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
Musician's Friend $100

It's a classic. It's sturdy, has that famous Crybaby sound. It's reliable and I know it will be around for a while.

There's not much to not like. The only thing I hear about these units is that the switch or internal guts will sometimes wear out with use, but Dunlop stocks all the parts so you can replace them yourself.

Built like a tank but susceptible to wear, especially if you gig frequently and or abuse the pedal.

This is classic performer with great tone, an unmistakable sound and solidly built. Everyone should have a Crybaby in their rig.

Ogmor's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ze wah"

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
A wah wah pedal with adjustable boost (volume and amplitude of the wah effect), whose particularity is to have no switch: the effect begins when you put the plate in motion, and when affete léve foot.
So: no true bypass possible, but I have nothing to reproach the buffer.
This is an analog pedal.


Even simpler than a conventional wah, since there is no switch.
By unscrewing the bottom plate of the pedal, there is a knob to adjust the delays of judgment effect when the pedal is loose.
For boots, a volume knob and a knob "EQ", very easy to use. For my part, I would boost that very little volume, and I thoroughly boost eq.
These EQ settings are enabled when the Inrush switch on the side of the pedal. Without that, we have the classic crybaby wah.
The switch responds well to the foot, a small pressure enough, but personally, I would have preferred it to be on the left side rather than right, because I prefer to use my left foot. But this is very personal.


Frankly, nothing to say on the particular sound. This is the crybaby all that has classic: a sound that puke acute thoroughly, very dirty. what's on is that this pedal in no way detracts from the charm and classic crybaby ela possibilities, it is simply a switch without this classic release. Basically, I wanted to take a Morley for the movement detection, but its level, I remained more convinced by the crybaby. When I saw it was no switch, I did not hesitate!


This is not an optical system as in morley, it is always a rack acting on a knob. unlike Morley. But I think it's pretty well built, just lubricate when the needs arise, and over a year of use, I do not always needed. I do not notice any interference, even a high volume. Let's hope it lasts!
I find the price a little abused on the other hand, since even if the system is good, it's still a standard wah. But if everything is reliable over time, it remains a good investment. I think not to risk saying that if it does not crash, EVER I would not change a wah pedal!

Whawha analog pedals boost a quip
simple jack connector in / out over PSU.


easier to use it is simple and Paselli switch is no microphone to the activation
the manual and good but useless


the sound quality is first equipped with a spring that reduces the normal pedals you play a normal one just has played with and let go when you want arrter. the sound is terrible nombreusse are whawha and I tried lots of different brand this one literally dgueulle wha is the sound of a power unrivaled I use it with a Start road house up with SH5 seymour in bridge and I can guarantee you when it sends the solos steak


I've had two months and a buddy has a long
the quality is Ingal my taste for a quality price ratio has EXCELLENT voirsur thomann 122 euros

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
The wha of references for all instruments other than guitars. Personally, I use a Roland Stage RD300SX and it goes well.
For specs, thank you see below.
Without analog PC edition. Between a jack and output jack.
The possibility to boost the sound with the biroute red. That said, I never use it.


Config trs simple. RULES as we love it and it is quiet APRS forever.
Note that you can rgler the rapidly with which the sound comes back normal (cd when you take your foot off the pedals). For this, we must disassemble the pedals and you will find in the middle, a flat white knob that lets you eefectuer the rglage. This soon to have a latency of 1 sec between the time you use the arrtez wha and the moment the sound comes back normal.


9a breath a little, makes a sound like a filthy chouillat we love, in short, is the Dunlop.


Wha good for musicians in need of funky attitude (and non grateux)

roguewillot63's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Dunlop 95Q CryBaby Wah Wah
The Wah on Wahs ... Cry Baby sound.
volume knob
Q knob
+20 dB boost

between output ...

9V battery or power supply

automatic switching: just walk on or take off your Panard so that the effect is activated / disables ... great!


You have two little knobs to turn, push pedals a snap and a button if you want to make more noise ... even when we just not find their account!

The Q knob is convenient to color the sound, you get sound trs Different.

Well ... you know how one works in combination wah. The hard part is our feeling to walk!


The wah of Wahs ... Cry Baby sound ... a myth

We like it or not, MODEL with variable Q, we can vary the pleasures but the grain is Submitted.

The boost is designed for clear sound in the saturated case you ca mchamment ears! In saturated ca goes well, it is even necessary if you want out of the mix.

The effect is great for the saturated as the clear sound. You can do anything with!

A Russianness in the range Cry Baby


I have a few months now, she's really going on everywhere.

The variable Q is a real bonus, and will boost rvle trs trs practice!

Sound level, ca claque! Once we find the feeling, the solos sound amazing though. Permission to show off and abuse, as it does not become kitsch.

Good good pressure with a sr ca ... normal ... but it can be handy! The blast, feedback ... you can lead and control it like that

Report qualitprix great! She is really nickel chrome for that price ... Then in addition I have had for 55 second-hand so it's really gnial!

Dunlop Vote!
