    Cool Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World

    CRY BABY: THE PEDAL THAT ROCKS THE WORLD

    Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World tells the story of the wah wah effect pedal, from its invention in 1966 to the present day. Musicians, engineers, and historians discuss the impact of the pedal on popular music and demonstrate the various ways it has been used, as well as how its evolution has improved the ability of artists to express themselves musically. The film features interviews with Brad Plunkett, the inventor of the pedal, plus many other musical luminaries such as Ben Fong-Torres, Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Buddy Guy, Art Thompson, Eddie Kramer, Kirk Hammett, Dweezil Zappa, and Jim Dunlop. These professionals explain how a musical novelty transcended convention and has become timelessly woven into the fabric of modern pop-culture.

    The only two wah pedals I've tried are the Dunlop Cry Baby and the Morley Bad Horsie II. The Dunlop had some flimy plastic parts and a switch that wouldn't click in all the way sometimes, leaving you with no signal, and the wah effect was no more than you could do with a tone knob on your guitar. The Morley Bad Horsie, on the other hand, is a fantastic design that knows your foot is on it from some sort of infrared signal and switches on without the need to push a button (no popping noises), and it can either sound over-the-top or subtle, depending on what you do with your foot. It may not be the perfect answer for everyone, but for $50-$75 used, I think it's great. All steel and Made in the USA, too!

    i like the idea behind the optical wahs , such as the Bad Horsie .
    the thing i don't care for though , is the look and the size of them ?
    they just seem to take up a lot of real estate on the pedal board ...

    to each their own , but i prefer the Dunlop wahs in terms of size and tone .
    i currently own the EVH sig and love the graphics and the dual blue indicator lights , but am not too crazy about the tonal sweep and wish that it was a switchless wah instead .

    which is a bummer because i've got a great looking pedal that doesn't sound all that great to my ears , compared to my old regular Crybaby ...go figure ?

    I personally own 2 crybaby's, one of which is modded. I have a friend who owns a McCon-O-Wah wah-wah pedal and I absolutely love it! It is the best pedal available, imo.
