Dunlop GCB95N Cry Baby
The Dunlop GCB95N is a somewhat unique pedal that takes a different approach to wah and filter effects. Personally I'm more of fan of a traditional wah wah pedal, but I recently had a chance to try this out and I can see it's worth. The pedal has two 1/4" inputs (one labeled for bass and one for guitar), a 1/4" output and 1/4" jack for an expression pedal if you choose to add one to the mix. Personally I think it's a good idea to get an expression pedal for it if you're going to own one, but I haven't used one with this pedal. It's powered by either a nine volt power supply or battery and isn't rackable since it's a foot pedal.


UTILIZATION

There are definitely a good amount of controls available with the Dunlop Wah. The AW-3 includes a new unique "humanizer" setting that gives you more of a talk box sort of sound that emulates human speech. There are two separate "vowel" controls with manual and sensitivity parameters that gives you the chance to choose what vowel you'd like the wah to sound like.


SOUND QUALITY

Admittedly, I wasn't expecting all that much from the Dunlop, but I have to say that I was surprised with it's versatility and the amount of cool sounds that are possible with it.


OVERALL OPINION

The Dunlop GCB95N is a cool pedal to check out if you're interested in unique filter and wah wah effects. I won't be buying one of these, but I do like it for use in the studio. I can definitely see how people could do some great things with this pedal, I just prefer the simplicity of my Dunlop Crybaby and there's definitely something more organic sounding about it even though it can't get nearly the same amount of sounds as the AW-3. If you use or want to use wahs and filters a lot, the AW-3 is worth a gander but it won't be for everyone.

Dunlop GCB95N Cry Baby
Wha wha pédal, analog

UTILIZATION

- can't be more easy to use

SOUND QUALITY

Good effect but the pédal seems poorly built: the bypass (not a true one) affect the sound quality (in the bad way), and when the effect is on, the signal drops and become thin
I'm modded mine and all those problems are over

Here's the link to compare moded and standard cry baby:

OVERALL OPINION

I was expecting more from the "standard" cry baby. But in fact it's really fun to mod it (it sounds great now).

Dunlop GCB95N Cry Baby
Cry Baby is the simplest

UTILIZATION

Configuration is very simple, you can not go wrong. The pedal is directly noted that should connect the guitar and the amp.
No editing or no adjustments.

To turn it on you have to trigger the button that is at an end and I find it quite difficult to engage (this may be a defect in my model so it may not rely on this criterion must)

SOUND QUALITY

In clear audio, you can use it although it does not need to go at an end because it gets all of garish suite and really not nice at all even when that's what you want. For race use, the Wah is not bad but I find it is not very pronounced (and I try in different amp with different guitars).

Then distorted sounds .... There really is not what I was looking for. I've never been out Cry Baby sound that can be heard in certain albums or even Live.
Any usable race I was talking in sound cleans, hardly gives variations of the sound if not an impression that the sound was muffled. It is normal that it is muted but not all the way through the race.
And when you get to the last part of the race, there was suddenly a big treble boost that gives her even more garish than Clean.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a year now but I've only used it very little because of these worries sounds that do not fit me.
This is the first model I tried, but I tested it with different guitars in different amp and even home studio and I was really cold in the use of a Wah, at least not if it does no curve settings, frequency or boost.

I am not writing this review so you do not buy this model. I just have a bad experience with it. Perhaps this is due to a defect in my model so I can only advise you to test it with your guitar, your amp, the different types of sound with which you want to use.

Before_'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Gross and nasty"

Dunlop GCB95N Cry Baby
Input, output, power supply classic ...

UTILIZATION

Yes, it engages and whaaah

SOUND QUALITY

ON agrees, high position treble is super loud, but what this shit is legendary crybaby, I do not think it colors the sound when turned off (unless a maniac and a demanding rockstar with sound).
I had neglected for a long time, and my period back RATM, I dusted and reconnected.
I like it, it's gross, but wish so crappy rock n'roll!
Secondhand and it is more affordable (I do not say pittance because we do not all live like kings, but at € 40 or less for a purpose that is reasonable).
Just watch when you're high position under penalty disengage the effect (it can be funny, what we will not play at Bercy either!).

OVERALL OPINION

The Crybaby is an effect that likes (no pun intended), black, and a very characteristic sound crappy (why always wanting something too neat?) Pedal is indestructible (tougher than a boss ).
Each piece will judge, but personally I hang.
Wah!

Mickey Wyhnner's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not the best"

Dunlop GCB95N Cry Baby
Wah guitar analog input and an output for connecting the unit.

UTILIZATION

Super easy to use. I find the game too short, it passes too quickly from low to super sharp, similar to the game of Vox.

SOUND QUALITY

this is the shit, it is not very difficult to find better, but it's true that it is robust.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for four years, and I much prefer a Bad Horsie Morley.
But I can not do without his horrible breath when I switched and those who break the sharp ears. It is indestructible.

DeathPaupiette's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" "Wha-Wha!""

Dunlop GCB95N Cry Baby
This is a Wha, what is most basic.
An input and an output jack (no kidding ...), a plug for the transformer 9V.
No true bypass, no diode, no knobs to adjust the frequency range ... 9, because at least one of these options would have been nice.

UTILIZATION

The configuration could not be simpler in the sense that there is no config '! Plug'n'play are the hallmarks of this pedal. 9, because no configuration possible, but at the same time this is requested.

SOUND QUALITY

This is the WHA is thus necessarily the sound is good:) a lot of serious food anyway, and the breath is present. I use it with my Cort Aero11 and my Peavey Vypyr. 9.

OVERALL OPINION

I for 1 week (I think to judge the Wha not need so much more ...). I tried the Vox, but that is too vintage for my taste. I would do this choice, although I have no experience ^ ^

Dunlop GCB95N Cry Baby
Wha is one and that's it, but it's already a lot.

UTILIZATION

You move your ankle and it makes Wha!

SOUND QUALITY

Well, I changed mine so that it no longer has much of the original version. Some components are useless, even more negative and more quality or value improves. Originally it sounds but no more.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been almost 6 years now I have. Side is solid nickel. I had a Vox before which was nice too, but actually what I liked the Vox was not in the Dunlop and what I liked in the Dunlop was not in the Vox ... Am I clear? So basically I just modded it in that sense ... in the end I like it now.

Finally, the original version is correct and given the price we will not complain.

Dunlop GCB95N Cry Baby
wahwah pedals to walk stack or branch with the proper adapter (not supplied)

UTILIZATION

simple, one 9 V battery (included) between a skyscraper and for output to an amplifier.

PDAL heavy and enjoyable for your little Panard

SOUND QUALITY

trs trs right hand up the pedals and the sound is sometimes loud (in saturation) and the saturation adpend still uses.

OVERALL OPINION

I can not do without! It changes everything in a solo instance (plain or saturated) and allows the Montes de ouf saturated in rhythm. As you clear rhythmic scales reggae, funk .. groove has a max.
The solo at the end of the song "As I Am" from my site (hsbox.fr) is done with this Fully wahwah ... You be the judge but I tell you in advance that has made A LOT!
for failing to sound shrill at times up to the pedals or you get used and you gre gear or you'll see on a little more expensive wahwah!
