Chasing a Schenker-esque cocked-wah tone? You’ve got two choices: you can either fiddle around with your wah-wah’s treadle to try to find the sweet spot, or get the Dunlop Cry Baby Q Zone. This compact stompbox gives you a fixed-wah sound without the hassle of the rocker. And best of all, it’s a genuine Cry Baby — the tried-and-true classic that’s found on a gazillion pedalboards. Setting up the Q Zone is a lot like using Dunlop’s Cry Baby 95Q pedal. Use the Volume control to boost your affected signal, Q Zone to tweak your bandpass shape, and Peak to determine your frequency center. The real beauty of the Cry Baby Q Zone is that you can set it and forget it. You don’t need to worry about bumping a treadle, and you’ll free up your full-sized pedal for real-time wah-wah effects. If a cocked wah is an important element of your tone, then you need Cry Baby Q Zone — it’s really that simple.
The Cry Baby Q Zone offers all the sound-shaping control you could ask for. Its Volume knob enables you to boost your affected signal, which is great for making your solos pop out of a busy mix. Its Q Zone knob adjusts the pedal’s bandpass shape from wide to narrow — a must for crafting a one-of-a-kind tone. And its Peak control serves the same function as the treadle on a full-blown wah-wah pedal, allowing you to set the frequency center of the effect. We love the Cry Baby Q Zone here at Music Experience. It delivers an instant fixed-wah tone — and it’s a genuine Cry Baby!
Now you can get the rich, resonant vocality of a fixed-position Cry Baby Wah in a standard pedal box. With this reissue of the Cry Baby Q Zone Fixed Wah, there's no need to mess around with the rocker and try to listen for the sweet spot every time you go onstage. Like the Cry Baby 95Q Wah, this pedal allows you to boost your effect signal and adjust the bandpass shape from wide to narrow with the Volume and Q Zone controls respectively. The Peak control acts like the rocker pot of a wah pedal, setting the frequency center of the effect exactly where you want it so that you don’t have worry about bumping the rocker and losing your position. Find your sweet spot and start jamming. Get the rich, resonant vocality of a fixed-position Cry Baby Wah in a standard pedal box with this reissue of the Cry Baby Q Zone Fixed Wah.
