The Dunlop Buddy Guy Wah Pedal, Polka Dots Are Cool Again
This month I will be showing you the Buddy Guy signature series wah pedal. Now despite the polka dot look of the pedal, it does have a really cool tone to it. I’m a bit of a wah pedal collector, and I own about seven or eight of them. Why so many? Well without sounding too Spinal Tap-like , they do all have their own different qualities. Some work better for aggressive playing, some work better for more mellow playing, and some sound perfect for the guy who is trying to capture that great corny wah tone they heard on every seventies cop show as a kid (or is that just me?). Check out the specs and my video below to check it out.
Buddy Guy Signature Wah Info
Cited as a major influence by wah-wah masters such as Hendrix, Clapton, and Vaughn—Buddy Guy helped establish the wah-wah as part of the blues vocabulary. To honor his contributions we have created the Cry Baby Buddy Guy Signature Wah, featuring the Fasel Inductor for a sweet and singing top end, and two distinct user selectable wah voices—choose “DEEP” for a big and throaty growl, or “BG” for Buddy’s own warm and bell-like wah tone. Convenient side-mounted LEDs indicate which mode you are in, while a separate LED indicates effect on/off. Let your guitar sing the blues in style with the Buddy-approved polka dot graphics and custom signature tread.
