Dunlop and the Meters' Leo Nocentelli Announce the Cry Baby Mardi Gras Wah

Featuring a NOLA-inspired finish and a lowered frequency range for warm grooves, the Leo Nocentelli Cry Baby Mardi Gras Wah pays tribute to a master of funk.

Lead guitarist and founding member of the Meters, Leo Nocentelli cooked up sizzling New Orleans-infused licks that redefined the NOLA sound and influenced artists of all genres around the world.

Dressed in deep purple, flashy gold, and cash-money green with a custom fleur-de-lis tread, the Cry Baby Mardi Gras Wah features a lowered frequency range to deliver that same vocalic warmth in proper NOLA style.
