going through my bookmarks... I know within the past couple of years I read an article on the Crybaby in all its phases...http://www.analogman.com/kraft.htm
-> documentary on the Cry baby http://www.crybabydoc.com/
I think some people don't consider Dunlop-era Crybabys to be the real thing or something... which... Thomas Organ Co. would seem to be more suspect since they almost wrecked Vox with poor quality amps.
I got in an MXR Smartgate pedal today... was a special for cheap last week that I got a bulletin about, and a co-worker picked up the box and kind of took an attitude about Dunlop owning MXR now... there's no reason for that, I trust the name Jim Dunlop!!! I think some people don't like change... and as Scott said anything old is better to some people.
I have some old Vox wah a girlfriend found sitting on top of a full trash dumpster she walked by in NYC in it's little vinyl case that works fine... dunno why someone threw it out.
I also have a recent Crybaby and some other wah I can't remember that people have begged me to buy when they needed a few bucks. Have never used them other than making sure they work.
And somewhere I have my favorite: the Uni-wah, which uses a flashlight's worth of D cell batteries and sounds different/has its own vibe.
oh, and I had a Cry Baby Fuzz Wah from the 60s that someone borrowed and lost... I miss it.
