Price Paid:

Condition: 
New
Features: 

The Mini Wah comes equipped with the legendary Fasel inductor, a full sweep range, and three internally adjustable voicings—Low, Vintage, and GCB95. At half the size of a standard Cry Baby pedal, the CMB95 is perfect wherever space comes at a premium, such as on a travel board. To top it off, this pedal features true bypass switching and high quality hardware so that it can take a beating on the road.

Ease of Use: 
5 (easy)
Pros: 

Sounds as good or better than my two, normal size Fulltone Clyde wahs. But in creating a small pedalboard, I didn't want the weight, so I picked up the new Dunlop Mini wah, and it sounds rude and raunchy as hell (in the good way). I like that you can choose the voicing you want from Low, Vintage, and GCB95.  I was surprised at how good it sounds. Better than I remember the full-sized Dunlop sounding, but it's been a long time since I played one of those.

I have mine set to the low setting, which you can hear around 4:30 of this video.

Cons: 

I found no downside to the basic Mini Wah.  I DID have an issue with the first run of the newer, $150 model, the Cry Baby Q Mini Wah Effects Pedal, and had to send it back. The adjustment switches were so poorly attached to the circuit board that the pedal was cutting the signal out unless you touched the switches. i.e put a little pressure on the switches, and the signal went through, but obviously you can't use it that way. The whole thing felt rather flimsy.  This was the very first run of these pedals and I had pre-ordered it. 

The basic model reviewed here does NOT have these issues.
