The Dunlop GCB65 Cry Baby is a limited edition dual-inductor Wah that brings together the throaty, vocal-like texture of the Halo inductor, and the lush, modern-sounding tone produced by a red Fasel inductor. You can toggle between the two voices via a sidekick switch, and dial in each voice’s toe-down frequency with a pair of knobs.

Dunlop GCB65 Cry Baby, Notes from the builder
The Cry Baby Custom Badass Dual-Inductor Edition Wah brings together the two most iconic wah voices in history, offering a broad and dynamic palette for your musical expression.
EXPRESSIVE & THROATY: THE HALO™ INDUCTOR.
The Halo Inductor produces that soul-stirring tone made famous by British blues legends—a wide, highly expressive sweep and a throaty midrange hinting at feedback. Choose the Halo Inductor to add richness and punch to your lead tones.
BRIGHT CLARITY & LUSH HARMONICS: THE RED FASEL® INDUCTOR.
The sound of the Cry Baby Wah’s modern era, the red Fasel inductor serves up bright clarity and lush harmonics. Combined with the circuitry of the GCB95, this inductor allows you to kick it on at super high volumes without any unwanted squeal. When it’s time for high gain and big, crunchy chords, go with the red Fasel Inductor.
TOGGLE BETWEEN THE TWO WITH THE KICK OF A SWITCH.
Go back and forth between the Halo and Fasel Inductors at any time with the kickswitch conveniently located on the right side of the pedal.
FINE-TUNED FOR YOUR OWN PERFORMANCE.
Shape the sound of each inductor to meet the needs of just about any situation. Each has its own toe-down frequency control, so you can balance them out or emphasize their natural qualities. If you want the red Fasel Inductor’s clarity with smoother highs, dial back the toe-down frequency. For a super aggressive sound that cuts right through the mix, crank it up. Likewise, you can give the Halo Inductor extra definition, or you can luxuriate in its rich, dark subtlety. If you’re switching between guitars with different tonal profiles, then you can use the toe-down frequency controls to maintain consistency.
KNOW WHEN YOU’RE ON.
Convenient LEDs show you when the pedal is engaged and which inductor you have selected.
RIDE HARD WITH STYLISH DOUBLE TREAD.
The rocker features a custom double tread design that looks great and enhances your foot’s grip so that you can lean in to every note.
