Readers with keen memories may recall our review of Morley’s Cliff Burton Power Wah in 2015, in which we pointed out the advantages of combining fuzz and wah effects in a single heavy-duty pedal. Seven years later, we’re reminded of that thoroughly decent tribute to the late Burton with the arrival of this equally solid chunk of wah pedal: Tool bassist Justin Chancellor’s own signature Cry Baby.

Like its earlier competitor, the Chancellor unit packs a lot into a single chassis. In this case, our $300 of taxed income gets us two wah circuits and a fuzz, the latter of which can work independently or with one of the wah effects.
