If you’ve ever opened up a wah-wah pedal, you’ll know that inside the casing there isn’t a whole ton of stuff in there. It’s mainly the casing that’s made to be foot-sized (for obvious reasons) but with a little ingenuity, the components could be condensed into a much smaller space WAIT I THINK I SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING.
As it turns out, Dunlop – makers of the ubiquitous Cry Baby wah – are way ahead of me. They’ve discovered the shrink ray and used it for the very best possible purpose, the Mini Cry Baby! It’s adorable, and it seems to sound pretty much identical – but it takes up a lot less space on your board.
Check out this wee wah in action in the video below, straight from the floor of NAMM 2015:
