Totally Gnarly: Five Modern Effect Pedals That Recreate Gritty '80s Sounds
From chorus to crunch, here are five effect pedals that recreate gnarly '80s sounds.
Dunlop GCB95F Crybaby Classic
Of all the Crybaby variations Dunlop manufactures in 2012, only one is called "Classic."
After all, this model, which, like Ibanez's Tube Screamer (See above), was recently reissued, features the much-sought-after Italian-made Fasel inductor. The Fasel was produced in the '60s — then went bye-bye for a few decades — but it's back, and the GCB95F Crybaby Classic has it under the hood.
What does this mean to you? You get the same tone that guitar heroes of past decades (including Slash, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Michael Schenker and countless '80s icons) put to good use, namely that hard-to-put-into-words old-school "quack."
The unit also features heavy die-cast construction; a 100K ohm Hot Potz potentiometer that allows for a quick, abrupt wah sound; and true-bypass switching.
MSRP: $210.30 | Head here for more info.
