Dunlop Cry Baby Classics are so popular that in many circles, guitarists use the term "Crybaby" to describe wah pedals in general the way people use "Band-aid" and "Kleenex" for "bandage" and "tissue." There's a good reason for this. For the same reason you're not supposed to jump on the bed, wah pedals need to be able to take a ton of abuse. Dunlop Cry Baby Classic are built like a steel girder - from its frame down to its pots, this thing is built to withstand serious beatings. And the Cry Baby Classic's got the traditional Italian-made Fasel inductors that made the original wahs sound the way they did. So if you want vintage tone that your grandchildren can someday inherit, you want a Dunlop Cry Baby Classic!
