Dunlop John Petrucci JP95 Cry Baby Wah Pedal

Wail like prog rock shredder John Petrucci with this signature JP95 Cry Baby Wah, designed with the Dunlop team and Dream Theater engineer Richard Chycki.
The John Petrucci Signature Cry Baby Wah is the result of the legendary prog metal shredder's years-long quest to hone his perfect wah tone. For years, John used the Cry Baby Rack Wah system to tweak and fine-tune its numerous parameters until he found the sound that perfectly represents all the expression and intensity he needs. Recently, he and Dream Theater engineer Richard Chycki worked with the Cry Baby design team to replicate and further fine-tune that sound with a single pedal. This is a wah that, as John puts it, sounds huge and badass like an angry, screaming monster with the ultimate expressive range-it's perfect for shaping single notes or manipulating growling, heavy chords.

Factory set to John's personal settings, the JP95 features all the controls he used to find his Cry Baby voice: Volume to add gain, Q to shape the width of the effect, and a 6-band EQ to shape the tone of the wah sound, from 100Hz to 3.2KHz. Want to fine-tune the sound to your own preference? Just take off the bottom plate and tweak away.

This Wah comes in a sturdy, road-ready housing with custom smoked chrome finish and JP shield logo tread.

The John Petrucci Signature Cry Baby Wah is powered by one 9-volt battery (accessed via bottom of pedal), an AC adapter such as the Dunlop ECB003/ECB003EU, or the DC Brick and Iso-Brick power supplies.

"Amazing wah!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've used several wah pedals over the years, and this is the best yet. I was most interested in the stock JP settings as Petrucci is known for his amazing tone. I couldn't be happier and see no reason why I would want to change any of the EQ or sweep settings. The tone is much better than Vox or Morley pedals. I also like it better than other Dunlop pedals I've used in the past as well. If you play rock or metal and want an unbelievable wah tone, you won't be disappointed with this pedal. This is five stars all the way around however I didn't rate manufacturer support as I haven't had any need to contact them.
