tells the story of the most expressive pedal guitarists step on—the wah-wah.

The tale starts in 1966 as Brad Plunkett—the wah-wah’s inventor—describes how his bosses at Thomas Organ asked him to design something new so the Vox Super Beatle wouldn’t require a Mid Range Boost switch—a feature that cost Vox four dollars per unit.

So don't reference this as a bad thing for the pedal.) In conclusion: A must have wah pedal that dominates the others with a pure tone.

I want a certain product but I don't see it on your site, Why don't you have it!!!?While other effects have come and gone, the Cry Baby Wah just keeps getting better with age. The one pedal that has rocked the world for decades from many different brands.Another cool moment is when Jim Dunlop and Bob Bradshaw talk about improving the Crybaby after Dunlop bought the design from Thomas Organ in 1982.

Some of the notable changes included adding a 100-percent true-bypass circuit, improving the input jack for durability, and adding an AC adapter and onboard frequency controls.

I am looking at buying another guitar or two at some point plus another amplifier to go with it. It’s difficult to imagine how the otherworldly sound of guitar-driven psychedelia, the soul-stirring bliss of 70s funk, or any one of a hundred essential guitar parts would have sounded without the tone-altering magic of the wah pedal.
