Captain Danny's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The base, but feeble"

Dunlop GCB95 Cry Baby
Wah Wah pedal classic, indeed not editable, non-rack, analog pedals, I do not know if it's true bypass. A IN, OUT and a power supply between 9V.

Mine seems ageless, the jack has been changed, the freshly painted and the background is lumpy, impossible to find how old was this pedal but it works, I can say that this is probably a very sturdy product (in same time it's Dunlop) without taking too much risk.

UTILIZATION

Configuration is very simple since there is nothing to configure, you force a little on the switch between the base and the lever to open the Wha and playing foot, we redo the same for the close. The base.

I did not have the manual with (too bad, I might be able to date it).

SOUND QUALITY

Wha the rings, very classic and what based, open, play on the lever and it makes Whhhaaaa. This is not rocket science, editing sounds is easy.

I use it on guitar, bass on it too tends to cut off the low frequencies for my taste.

Two big flaws for my taste that spoil everything well: Q is set too high for my taste, compared to my EQ and the sound of my guitars, which compels me to regulate it so as not too the open too easily and assaulting the ear. In addition, we sometimes snap at a significant loss of volume depending on where it is placed in the chain or loop, not very practical for solo ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for eight months, I have the Cry Baby Bass I'm happy, Wha Wha level guitar I have not tested the other.

I like its simplicity and paradoxically lack of adjustment options that do not adjust for the use made of it, in fact you should always take a Wha with minimum adjustment for Q and for volume.
But I keep it because I am using a guitar for Wha gratouiller at home, lack of flexibility of the machine making it surely and in my opinion, difficult to use group (at least it goes to the studio where was able to touch the signal). Plus I love the vintage look and destroy the mine, bought second hand and already quite repaired.

I jumped on it as cheap as found during, against nine I do not think it worth the shot.

With the experience I would take a model with at least enough to set the Q and Volume.

UTILIZATION

Simple.
For those whose switch does not engage well it's very easy to adjust its height. You just need a screwdriver to open the case and a key to adjust the height of the switch.

SOUND QUALITY

This is where it gets stuck. When she is walking it will when the effect is cut is devastating. The bass and treble disappear and remains only the nasal base.
Fortunately, it's pretty easy to fix, just a few mods to put a true bypass. Check out here:

The manipulation is explained step by step.
There are in addition to other cool mod though.

OVERALL OPINION

Modif before it unusable in my opinion (I put 3 / 10). Bypass the sound deteriorates too.
Once changed it becomes very good (8 / 10).
For my part, I started putting a TrueBypass and an LED that indicates when the effect is running. Then I added a switch that toggles between a wah guitar (GCB-95) to a low Wah (GCB-100). It's pretty simple change only a capacitor between the two wah.
