Bob Bradshaw of Custom Audio Electronics designed the MXR MC-404 CAE Dual Inductor Wah Pedal with the Cry Baby design team to create a highly versatile wah-wah with top-grade components. The MC404 CAE Wah features dual Fasel inductors with 2 distinct voices (high-end emphasis or low-to-mid resonance), and a built-in MXR MC-401 Boost/LineDriver that adds even more flexibility.
Choose between inductors and turn the boost on or off with the side-mounted kickswitches. Bright LEDs on each side of the wah indicate operation status. The MC404 CAE Wah boasts true hardwire bypass, a long-life CTS potentiometer, and internal pots for the Q control-which varies the intensity of the wah effect-and gain adjustments. You get the high performance and quality that you expect from Dunlop, the world leader in wah-wah technology.
Bob Bradshaw has been one of the world's foremost designers of custom guitar pedalboards and effects systems for many of rock's most influential guitarists for 3 decades. And for just as long, MXR and Cry Baby have been synonymous with the effects pedal innovations that have shaped the tone of modern electric guitar playing. So it was only natural for them all to join forces to create a dynamic line of pedals offering the ultimate in tone, functionality and road-worthy dependability. Since 1980, CAE's groundbreaking pedal designs were made in limited quantities only for a select clientele of world-class guitarists. But now these very same devices and circuits are available to all.

All I can say is BUY THIS WAH PEDAL......you won't be sorry. Fantastic sounds, and quality. This thing has 2 inductors and the tonal sounds you can get from this thing are just killer. Just to top it all off, they even added a boost circuit and pedal feel adjustment. It doesn't get any better than this. I looked at several Wah pedals and I am very glad I got this one.
Pulled it out of the box today and was absolutely blown away! The dual wah sounds are sweet, not vastly different, but different enough that it matters. And the boost, oh the boost is incredible. It might actually replace my TS-9!! Stop reading this and buy this wah; it's durable, it's sexy, and it sounds incredible!
This by far the best wah I've ever used. It's versatile and pronounced. The boost function is great. Great adjustable action. Bradshaw knows how gear. Try it... it's the best money you'll spend.
I have played regular Cry Babies, Morleys, and VOXs for years, and I have never, ever heard a Wah pedal like this one before. It blows them all away. I love the setttings on this one. From sweep to full out WAH in your face. Its got it all. I know the quality of MXR pedals, and also the quality of Custom Audio Amps, which I play now. This is just icing on the cake. How sweet it is.
If you're looking for the pedal that does, well, pretty much everything, this is it. Not only does it have both fasels that are easily switchable, but it also includes the MC401 boost circuit, so you can bump up your leads with a click. It's quiet, doesn't color your sound when bypassed and can be adjusted to suit what you're looking for (it also has adjustable Q and boost level). Hard to go wrong when you combine the original (Crybaby) with a genius (Bradshaw).
I love this wah! I've had mine for about 3 months now and I can honestly say that I am very happy with this wah. The red fasel has the deep sound of a standard crybaby, and the yellow fasel has a much more trebly sound, IMO. They aren't completely different, but the two have distinct differences. Also, there are three internal trim pots, so you can really dial in this bad boy to your liking. This is the only pedal that has kept a solid spot on my board. If someone stole it from me, I would track them down, take my wah back, and proceed to beat them over the head with it until they lost consciousness. Then I'd plug this sukka in, and rock out...that's how tough it is. Very solid! =)
Just recieved my wah today and let me tell you this thing sounds awesome. I play an modded Ibanez Prestige through a Mesa Roadster 212. Tried out Clydes,Joe Satch's wah,Q535,and the Wahzoo which I must say is also very awesome. Both are true bypass and true to your tone. I chose the CAE because of the extra features. The boost makes my channel 2 a new found joy to play on as my leads on this channel now sound very soulful and sustainy. It's like I have 2 channels on my channel two. Very nice wakka wakka. Noticeable dual Fasels. Two internal Q's you can easily adjust and dial up boost. This pedal has it all. If I lost this pedal I would buy another one that hour. So,from clean playing with my volume knob rolled backed all the way to the hardest crunching gain I can muster up this thing is the bomb.
