MGR/Anonymous's review"Dunlop QZ-1 Crybaby Q Zone"

Dunlop Cry Baby Q-zone
Around a $100 at a guitar show in Columbus, OH.

Sturdy steel casing, strong construction. Very high quality. Flexible settings.

I guess when I use a wah, I tend to rock the pedal rather than play in one setting. The Q Zone is basically a pedal that allows you to set a particular pedal position without fear of bumping it or screwing it up. Sometimes I wish I had two because if you're playing a gig you don't want to be reaching down to change settings.

Incredible quality. You could shoot this out of a cannon and it probably wouldn't have a scratch on it.

For $100, I think it has limited functionality. It's really a pedal for a specific purpose and I probably shouldn't have picked it up. I was more curious than anything. If you've got the application for it, I'd highly recommend it, just don't expect to be changing settings all the time.

Hatsubai's review"Wah without the pedal"

Dunlop Cry Baby Q-zone
Wah pedals have become a staple of the guitar world. Look at any guitarist's pedalboard, and there's a 99% chance that guitarist will have a wah pedal there. Some guitarists, such as Michael Schenker, like to leave the wah on and in a stationary position for a signature sound. Dunlop pretty much built a pedal just for that. This is a pedal with a volume, q-zone and peak knob setting. The volume controls the volume, obviously. The q-zone controls the zone of the wah you're looking for, and the peak controls the overall peak of the tone. It's kinda hard to explain, but once you mess with it, you'll hear what I mean.

UTILIZATION

Jim Dunlop pedals are pretty well known for being rugged, and this is no exception. You can throw this across the stage without a problem, it's that sturdy. The knobs feel great, the switch is fairly strong (although some do go out after prolonged stepping over years and years), the case is rugged and it is easy to use. To top it off, there's an LED. For some reason, there are other pedals out there that don't have an LED, and I'll never understand that. It doesn't take much effort to add an LED, and they don't introduce any tone suckage, so I have no clue why they constantly stray away from them in some pedals.

SOUND QUALITY

To say the sound is good is kinda hard to say. For one, you have to like that cocked wah sound. If you're a fan of that sound, this could be exactly what you're looking for. Instead of constantly trying to find that special place in the wah pedal, you can just set this to what you're looking for and leave it on. Or, if you want to have that cocked wah for a lead sound, this could be easier to use instead of a normal wah.

OVERALL OPINION

Those of you who are fans of a cocked wah sound might be fans of this pedal. It's not too popular with a lot of the crowd simply because it's such an aggressive sound that can sound extremely thin if you're not careful. There's a real fine line between what sounds cool and what sounds like ass. It's worth checking out, but I don't see myself adding it to my pedal board any time soon.

Dunlop Cry Baby Q-zone

analog pedal that aims to create a type of "stuck wah."

three settings: boost, Q-Zone (Q), peak (center frequencies)

tru-bypass


UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, it makes perfectly what he is asked. Sound like "Money for Nothing", very perfect for some nasal passage or solo.

Q-box to increase the frequency determined by the "peak", wide or narrow.

the peak is what manipulates the foot (on Knob crémaille) in a classic wah, determines the center frequency. It ranges from large and rapidly severe resonant midrange / high (or even a little "loud" at the end of the race that is suddenly longer than a crybaby for example)

Boost increases the output level (the same circuit as the MXR micro amp has TITTRE of infrmation) to saturate (and out) pedals placed after earnings.
It can

SOUND QUALITY

very easy to use, it makes perfectly what he is asked. Sound like "Money for Nothing", very perfect for some nasal passage or solo.

Note however, that we should not expect a real sound "wah" like a crybaby or vox could give. The sound here is quite different, more "right" and not "blunder" because of the technology used (filter with PDO) is or wah pedals can sound round and creamy (with choke)

(The only "fixed-wah" used a "choke" (key component wah "standard" is one made by Keeley)

Josh Homme (QOSTA) is a major user, used extensively in live for years on a lot of tracks (solo / intro). Kerry King Slash or apparently also used, but not familiar of the two I can not say more.

OVERALL OPINION

I Own for almost over a year, I found the former model ocaz 'not too expensive, I did not want the version hideous "signature king." It is hard to find in stores, it did not sound great.

Little or no equivalent model (except Keeley) on the market.

Value for money, I can not say I do not know the price "new" but being given the uniqueness of this pedal on the market difficult to predict. For the same reason I would do this choice.
