New York City, NY (September 25, 2012) – Sharing all the attributes of the ground-breaking Crying Tone Wah, these three new pedals have no moving parts and feature the same, smooth, rocking chassis for exceptional control plus bypass switching that is completely silent. They do not use a potentiometer, optics or magnetism.

The Volume Pedal permits precise and very expressive control over the volume of an instrument. It features a buffered bypass output and can be powered by a 9V battery or an optional 9.6V AC Adaptor. The Volume Pedal has a U.S. List Price of $117.60.

The Expression Pedal delivers accurate, highly responsive control over expression or control-voltage capable effects and instruments. It is equipped with a Range dial which controls the Heel setting of the pedal’s sweep and enables the player to increase or decrease the expression sweep range. A Reverse button reverses the direction of the Expression pedal’s output. The pedal ships with a ¼″ TRS cable and a 9V battery. It can also be powered by an optional 9.6V AC Adaptor. The Expression Pedal has a U.S. List Price of $117.60.

The PAN Pedal is extremely responsive and affords meticulous control over the stereo imaging of a musical instrument(s). The pedal can also be used to pan one input to two outputs, blend two inputs to one output or as a mono or stereo volume pedal. It has a U.S. List Price of $116.00.

All three pedals are in stock and shipping now.

Flexible filtering options and a vicious fuzz distinguish the Tool bass master’s signature fuzz-wah.

Great quality filters that sound good independently or combined. Retains low end through the filter spectrum. Ability to control wah and switch on fuzz simultaneously. Very solid construction.

Fairly heavy. A bit expensive.

Options for self-expression through pedals are almost endless these days. It’s almost hard to imagine a sonic void that can’t be filled by a single pedal or some combination of them. But when I told bass-playing colleagues about the new Dunlop Justin Chancellor Cry Baby—which combines wah and fuzz tuned specifically for bass—the reaction was universal curiosity and marvel. It seems Dunlop is scratching an itch bass players have been feeling for quite some time.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
