Back in the 1960s, the wah pedal was born. Those original pedals, which included the first CRYBABY, are among the most sought-after effects of all time. They had a unique voice that has been impossible to duplicate–until now. After more than 30 years, the holy grail of wah components, the Fasel inductor, is back. It helps the CRYBABY Classic deliver that vintage wah tone you’re looking for.
The Cry Baby Classic Wah is a modern take on a classic sound. Dunlop’s engineers re-tuned the Cry Baby Standard Wah circuit to have a lower frequency center and a more subtle effect while adding the legendary Fasel® Inductor to create the gorgeous tone, voice, and sweep of early Cry Baby pedals. For tonal purists, the Cry Baby Classic Wah also features true bypass switching.
- Features the original Italian-made Fasel inductor
- Recreates the vocal sweep and lush harmonics from the wah’s classic era

- Power: Dunlop ECB003 AC Adapter or Single 9 volt battery
When you think about the classic wah-wah sounds of the 60s, you think about British bluesmen and psychedelic American rockers, not Italy. But those Sunshine-y and Foxey tones could not have existed without the Italian-made Fasel inductors that were in the first wah pedals–including the original Crybaby. These inductors were the key to the pedals’ tone, but have been unavailable for years. Not anymore.
Your Crybaby Classic with Fasel Inside will faithfully recreate the vocal sweep and lush harmonics from those timeless recordings. Plug in your Crybaby Classic and hear what you’ve been missing.
The CRYBABY Classic features a heavy, die-cast construction, for a road-ready wah pedal that’ll provide years of reliability.
Hot Potz Potentiometer
The CRYBABY Classic boasts a 100K ohm Hot Potz potentiometer, built to last and providing you with a quick, abrupt wah sound.
Power the CRYBABY Classic with a 9-volt battery, or grab an optional Dunlop ECB-003 AC Adapter for powering via outlet.
