The Dunlop Dime Crybaby from Hell definately comes loaded with numerous tonal options. The six position selector allows you to control the frequency of the wah effect which is where a basic wah falls short. This also 3 small POTS on the side to control volume/gain, the width of the wah effect and a fine tuner. The icing on the cake is a foot accessible 15 DB boost control. The camo paint scheme is pretty wicked and makes for a nice looking piece.


This thing took your basic wah and literally made it everything you could ever want in a wah pedal, over the top as Dime would have loved. The ability to control the entire sweep of the wah effect is, for me, one of the best features. Nothing worse than going to add a wah effect and having it flatten out at either the top or bottom of the sweep. This lets you adjust your way to the perfect setting to hit the top and bottom perfectly. The six position switch gives you a quick way to change basic wah settings and then use the fine tuners to adjust from there. I find myself dialing in my basic favorite and leaving it be. The kick boost is also a neat feature I use now and then.


No complaints on the sound. This purchase was the result of having had several basic Dunlop wahs and wanting something that went further and this was it for sure. The only other one that has me curious is the EVH wah after seeing Eddie play this live. I might have to give that a try and see if it brings anything else to the table above and beyond this great pedal. It does suck a little bass which is my complaint about most stomp boxes.


Overall the Dime wah fits perfectly into my playing style. I gig with this and from a sound perspective, I have been very satisfied. Definately head and shoulders above your basic Dunlop pedal, both vintage and new. The tonal possibilities with this are pretty endless. While I have a built in wah on my multi-effects, I never use it as it doesn't match what this can do.

My only complaint is that I wish it were a little more road worthy. Battery cover broke off shortly after taking out to play and the rubber feet have fallen off, one of which I still have not found. This is a common issue with Dunlop Wahs and I wish for such a great unit, they would have improved on these aspects.
