Dunlop Unveils the Cry Baby Custom Badass Dual-Inductor Edition Wah

Dunlop Unveils the Cry Baby Custom Badass Dual-Inductor Edition Wah

Easily toggle between Halo and Fasel inductors with a convenient kickswitch.

Benicia, CA (January 22, 2021) -- 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.

Two iconic Cry Baby voices. One pedal.

Why choose between the two ultimate expressions of Cry Baby Wah tone when you can have both in a single pedal? Get the Cry Baby Custom Badass™ Dual-Inductor Wah, and speak with the voices of legacy and innovation.

Since its introduction in 2013, PRS’s S2 range has worked to bridge the gap between the company’s most affordable and most expensive guitars. PRS’s cost-savings strategy for the S2 was simple. The company fitted U.S.-made bodies and necks, built using the more streamlined manufacturing processes of PRS’s Stevensville 2 facility, with Asia-made electronics from the SE line.
