The Electro-Harmonix Crying Tone Wah carries on a strong tradition set in the 1960’s when the wah wah pedal was introduced. Now, almost half a century later, Electro-Harmonix has solved many of its inherent problems by creating a gorgeous wah with absolutely no moving parts and a super sweet tone. No moving parts means no pots, footswitches or gears to break. All of this innovation without sacrificing any functionality means that it will satisfy even traditionalist. The contoured bottom means it feels like a traditional wah. It’s super responsive and amazingly expressive. Instantaneous switching from bypass to effect makes it great for playing live.
