The Justin Chancellor Cry Baby Wah is a multi-tool of sonic craftsmanship, combining three separate effects into a single pedal: the fluid expressiveness of a custom midrange filter, the bright aggression of a custom wah circuit, and the chainsaw grind of a vintage fuzz. It's the perfect complement to bass player Justin Chancellor's multi-dimensional role in the band Tool.
The U.K. Filter mode uses a custom solid-state circuit designed to emulate the unique envelope-like filtering of the tone control on Justin's own instrument—thick and throaty with very pronounced peaks. If you prefer a more traditional wah sound, the Wah mode employs the classic red Fasel Inductor and the circuitry of a modified Cry Baby Wah for a more aggressive sound and brilliantly lush harmonics.
This pedal also features Justin's go-to fuzz, based on a ferocious device of vintage UK origin. It cuts through the mix with a tighter focus than most fuzzes of its type while retaining much of a bass signal's thunderous heft.
