GREAT Wah Sep 19, 2004
By S. Jacobs
The ability to quickly change the range and sensitivity has made it easy to dial in the exact sound you want to hear. It's built like a tank and has worked flawlessly in the time I've had it. Since I normally power it with a wall wart, I don't have much of an opinion about battery life.
Bottom Line: It costs a bit more than the standard Dunlop wah pedals, it's worth it.

Great Wah Mar 02, 2010
For years I played the original Cry baby, the Vox Wah, and others I can't remember names of. I was always on a quest for a good wah sound that I just couldn't find. I didn't want to spend $600 on a wah with a rack. So at the recomendation of a studio engineer I purchased this wah about 5 years ago. I am very pleased that I followed that advice because this pedal really has the range of wah I was looking for. The greatest thing about this pedal is that it is customizable. The user dials in the frequency sweep they want. The volume boost is a great feature when you need to play a lead over the live mix. I recomend this wah pedal over all the others, especially the signature series wahs because you can get the same sound out of this unit with a little tweeking.

Versatile Wah for tweakers! Jul 30, 2011
I chose the Dunlop 535Q Multi-Wah Crybaby for several reasons. It is made by the those who made the original Crybaby, used by Jimi Hendrix and countless others. It offers the greatest versatility of any other wah pedal in the dunlop range. It sounds great, as evident by a previous version of this pedal being used by Adam Jones (Tool) to shape his unique tone, along with many others.
The 535Q features a 6-way selectable frequency range knob, allowing you to use a range, from bright and snappy cry to a bassy growl. This setting can let you dial in the exact frequency range you want for your wah.
This pedal also comes with a Q knob, for adjusting whether your wah is sharp and quacky, or more of just a frequency boost. Speaking of boost there is a boost button on the side, that you can kick on to get a louder signal (adjustable by the boost knob).
Back to the Q knob, it adjusts the slope of your frequency boost, ranging from sharp to flat. Sharp = _/\_ Flat = _--_
When the Q is flat, you can use the wah for more of a subtle tone change, or if you want more funk, make the Q sharper.
The pedal's construction is very solid, much more than the cheap plastic Behringer rip-off I owned previously (which wasn't shielded and led to radio interference - the Dunlop wah is a quality product and won't do this!)
That's pretty much the pedal in a nutshell. I'm a tweaker, and I love it, it lets me be a bit more expressive for those long sustained solos, and it's great for controlling feedback.

Wah Sep 23, 2012
By Seth King
Perfect wah. Produces some sounds I didn't think were attributed to wah's. Highly reccomendable. It is definitely worth the price.

Versatile Crybaby Mar 19, 2013
Crybaby is just the standard for wah pedals. The 535Q is above and beyond any other crybaby i've owned. it's fully adjustable parameters make this the most versatile wah i've ever played. And, it's built like a tank.
