Boom Chicka Wah-Wah

March 30th, 2011

Figment player shaveblog sent me this great documentary on the Wah Wah effects pedal.  “Cry Baby:  The Pedal That Rocks The World” is the story of the wah wah effects pedal and is packed with appearances from famous guitarists who have used it over the years.  So take a minute and get a dose of boom chicka wah-wah!

    Thanks for posting. Been meaning to watch this for a while now, as I am obviously a fan of tasteful application of the Cry Baby ;). Great video! Thought the one comment near the end about people instictively reacting to use of the wah was spot-on – you tell some non-player about using a phase or octave pedal and you’d get blank stares, but EVERYONE gets the wah-wah-wah effect.

    This documentary is awesome! I no longer have my Dunlop wah, but I still have a bass wah along with a bizarre German copycat that has two settings: “wah-wah” and “yoy-yoy”.
