Dimebag has been a long time user of a wah pedal, and he always had a unique style. After many years, Dunlop decided to release a pedal for him. This is based off of the mods he used to do to his own pedals, and I find that they're very similar to the mods I used to do to my own pedals. It features an extended sweep range knob, a 6 way sweep adjuster, volume boost and LED lights to let you know that the pedal is on/off. It may seem strange, but that LED thing has saved me quite a few times on stage when I couldn't hear stuff too well through my monitors.


The pedal is housed in one crazy tank of a housing. I should mention that I'm generally not a fan of signature gear, and I don't really like the paint job on this. However, that skateboard grip tape on this is pure genius, and I have since done the mod to my actual pedal that I have. The extra features on this might require you to read the manual. It can be confusing for people who have never used wah pedals with this many features before. If you're coming from a 535Q, you'll pretty much be able to figure everything out, but those from the GCB95s might not be acquainted with the extra features.


The wah sounds awesome. It's a very aggressive sounding wah that cuts through the mix like crazy. You can dial it in to be smooth, but it's really meant for aggression and cut. The volume boost on this is cool, but you have to realize that it doesn't really do much with an already compressed amplifier. Instead, it'll add some more compression. The sweep adjustments really allow you to fine tune this thing, and you can get most of those wah sounds you hear in your head with this pedal. While it can get that Dimebag tone, it can do much more than just that sound.


This, along with the 535Q, are the two wah pedals that I recommend people check out if they don't want to shell out the money for the rack wah. These are great sounding pedals with tons of features that sound great and don't break the bank. Be sure to buy used as you can get some killer deals on these from eBay and other guitar forums.
