Overview

The Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah must be one of the toughest, meanest wah pedals on the planet. Built from the ground up with great tone and rugged durability in mind, the Zakk Wylde pedal can stand up to the crushing stomp of metal's reigning king of lead guitar. The Wylde Cry Baby Wah is crafted with a heavy-duty raw-metal casing and roadworthy components to withstand years of abuse. With guts that have been finely tuned to Zakk's specs, including the Fasel inductor, the Dunlop Cry Baby wah is specially voiced to deliver extra-thick and cutting tone. You can power you Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby with a 9V battery or the Dunlop ECB-003 AC adapter

After reading reviews and playing the classic crybaby, 535Q, and Kirk Hammett signature, I was going to buy the Kirk Hammet. I then realized i didnt have enough money, so i bought this one (my next option). I had yet to play it, and I have to say i am extremely happy i bought it. The sweep is excellent, and the adjustable rocker is amazing. I would totally buy it again. Really, buy this if you want a serious crybaby

Well normally I don't give bad reviews on stuff but I was pretty dissapointed with this pedal. The first one I ordered was broken when it got to my house... So I took it back to the store and ordered another one... I was itching to try it so I asked them if I could try the used one they had there and that one was broken too... Well any way so it finally came in and it does have an ok sound but the pedal is all low end and is very limited on what you can do with it. Like if you play bulls on parade it sounds perfect... And if you play lower notes it's sound very drastic in a kinda cool way.... But I put it next to my dime crybaby from hell turned the knob all the way to the low frequency on the dime and IMO they sounded exactly the same. After going back and forth for awhile between the two I could hear no difference. So what I'm getting at is if you like the sound of this wah or want a wah with a ton of low end get the dime crybaby because it's way more versatile then this and you can make it sound exactly the same. Plus the dime crybaby you can get craZy high end or almost any sound you want out of that pedal.. This pedal does have a killer finish and is built like a tank. But I would say only buy this if your a hugs zakk fan and want it as a collectors item.. Otherwise buy the crybaby from hell and you won't be dissapointed ;)

Fat Wah sound

By Skip

from South Texas

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

I've played, and owned many wahs in my quest for ultimate wah tone. I've owned vintage pieces, all the way to the new fancy wahs that contain every feature known to man. Thank Goodness to Dunlop, and Zakk Wylde my search is over. I use Les Pauls and Marshalls exclusively. This wah allows my guitar to retain the fat tone that the Les Paul is known for. The only thing that could improve this wah is including true-bypass feature (come on Dunlop!). So if you're tired of thin, trebly wahs, get yourself the Wah with Balls!!! The ZW-45!!!!!

One Trick Pony

By Machine Gun

from Carson, CA

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

I have three Wah's the standard, Zakk's and Dimebag's. Tuned to "D" the standard wah can't handle the tone. I play Pauls (Gibson, Epi, and ESP/LTD) Zakk's Wah is perfect for getting that Zakk sound. I found my self wanting more control. I wanted a better range of sweeps and tone. I bought the Dimebag Wah. Very Cool. Sometime I run them both for some really sick noise. Looking for Zakks sound this wah is it, want more get a Dime it's worth it.

Want a Great wah? You found it!

By maloney16

from north attleboro, ma

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

I have had this for a year and change and I am still as happy as the first day i got it! It is true that buying this wah will not automatically make you sound like Zakk. DUH! But it gets you closer than you were without it! The Zakk does not have any knobs or any fancy stuff, so any of you beginners with no real technical knowledge don't shy away. It is easy to use and has a killer sound. It acts like a beast in drop D while other wah pedals would just sound, mediocre. And who wants to play guitar and have people think your mediocre!?!?! I DON'T! Every metal fan should have this peice of equipment!

if you play metal look no further

By geoff

from bordentown new jersey

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

im a massive wah fanatic, iv reasearched and played many wahs over the years. now im a total metal head and thats my main style of music and this wah is absolutly perfect for it, its like the standard metal wah, the classics and originals got me that nice classic feel but when i turned up the gain i couldnt get that sound i was looking for, this wah solved all that. its a straight forward cast iron wah, no BS, its a true wah through and through, it has more bottom end for thick throatty bass tones, and high screaming highs. so an extended sweep means you got a wider selection for your tone, it handles the biggest amounts of distortion with ease and cuts through it all like its nothing. get the gain and wah sound with no compromise, you can even mix it up where you want it in the chain for diffrent sounds. put it at the begining for a true classic wah feel with no signal clashings or do like i do and put some fuzz octave and distortion before it and click it on and listen to the wall of sound flow. like a tidal wave of metal. also even if you arnt a metal head you can turn the gain off and still get a bluesy clean feel out of it. its extended sweep breaths new life into clean wah sounds. play voodoo child with wider notes then everbefore. what ever your style this wah will compliment it but if your a metal head this wah is the only one youl need

Wylde Wah Tone

By Cashboy22

from Pensacola

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

I just got this pedal a couple of days ago and it is amazing. It works great with an overdrive pedal. If you are looking for that signature wah tone you will need to get a JCM800 head from Marshall.

Wylde Tone, Delivered.

By Zakk Mylde

from New Jersey

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

Let me start by saying, I haven't had time to test this in all kinds of ways. I can tell you now though, at least through my set-up, this is TRUE Zakk Tone, end of story. You don't need to put EMG's in your Epiphone Custom, Grab a JCM Head, This is the tone. I used a Fender Strat through it and it still sounded perfect. The Tone I use for a Zakk style is on a Marshall MG Half-Stack, Treble 10, Bass 5, Middle 0, Contour 7. Bridge Pick-up of a Strat, and sometimes the Middle and Neck. Boss Overdrive too. I set this up second in line in my pedalboard, behind a Digitech Whammy, and in front of my Tone Pedals. I turned on Amp Overdrive, Pedal Overdrive, And this pedal, and I should say you'll probably need some sort of Scratch Hum eliminating pedal. I gave it a 3 For Features because while they're are no features to speak of, It's straight forward, no dials. No hours spent looking for that tone, it's there. I gave it a 5 for quality because it does what it's suppose to do. Give you a Zakk tone. 3.5 For Value, because I don't like that the adjustable Wah is the same price, and a 4 Overall. I love this pedal. It has a nice clean, tone great gain boost, etc. I'll say it again, this IS going to give you like 90% of Zakk's Signature Tone. Get a Chorus pedal too. Great pedal, great for Wylde fans, worth the money.

Wylde Tone

By BornonsamedayasHendrixNOV27

from Richmond, VA

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

I bought this Wylde Wah pedal just to play around with, never anticipating joining a band. This became one of my favorite effects to use when we were just improvising solos. It sounds great, but my AC adapter port broke, so now I have to use batterys, but I should probably get that fixed.

a sweet upgrade

By Bri Guy

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

I had owned a regular dunlop wah before this one and I can tell hands down that the sweep on this pedal far exceeds the one on the regular dunlop wah. The treble is much brighter and the sounds from bass to treble have more emotion to them. Given another choice I'd choose a second one.

Zakk Wylde Wah Pedal

By MulletRocker505

from Salt Lake City, Utah

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

This wah pedal is awesome and I just barely got it. It sounds excellent, very Zakk Wylde type of tone. This is a must-have for guitarists who are fans of Black Label Society. Maybe even Ozzy Osbourne fans, but it's mainly Black Label tone. It's all basically Zakk Wylde tone and I recommend this to Zakk Wylde fans who play guitar.

AMAZING WAH!!!

By Anonymous

from Chicago

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

I have had this wah pedal for 3 weeks now and it is amazing. I tryed out all the other wah pedals that guitar center had and i felt that this one gave me the most controll over my sound. You will also get bigger high and low pitches with this wah. It comes with a wrench so you can adjust the pressure it takes to make it move and you can buy an adaptor for it if you wish. This wah can really wail with some heavy distortion and still sounds great. I highly recomend it.

None Better

By Ck4Lyfe?

from Bakersfield, CA

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

This wah is just simply amazing, Zakk Wylde happens to be my favorite guitar player and this is the wah he uses. If you like Zakk, buy this wah you WILL NOT regret it. Yeah, well maybe the price is a little much but it is worth every single penny you spend on it. Another thing is you get a guitar pick signed by zakk wylde. What more could you ask for out of a wah?

This thing is awesome.

By Adam Fortney

from Lake Stevens, Washington

Comments about Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Cry Baby Wah Pedal:

This is the perfect all around wah pedal. Nothing more to say. Great for playing anything from Alice in Chains to Hendrix. It's got a great sweep. Better than all the other wah's i played.The only thing i wish that was different is that some of the parts inside that are plastic. Some of these parts are the parts that are getting pushed on alot like the gears. Other than that an awesome wah.
