The Dunlop JC95B Jerry Cantrell Wah pedal - limited edition black
The super popular Jerry Cantrell Cry Baby Wah just got a makeover, and it’s all about going back to the riff master’s Seattle roots. The distressed black finish recalls the visual vibes of the Alice in Chains record Rainier Fog while the custom treadle design is based on Jerry’s own tribal orca tattoo, created by Coast Salish artist Joe Wilson. As a sweet final touch, the bottom plate features the full lyrics to the song “Rainier Fog” from the aforementioned album.
One of the most influential guitarists to come out of the Seattle rock scene, Jerry Cantrell’s epic riffs and searing tone have been the driving force behind Alice in Chains since the late 80’s. His melancholy wah-drenched melodies in modern classics like “Man in the Box” and “The Rooster” left an indelible mark on a generation of guitarists. Jerry favored wah-wahs with a wider, darker response, and Dunlop has painstakingly replicated that moody sound to create his signature pedal. It’s custom-voiced for a tight, punchy heel-down tone and a rugged side-control knob lets you fine tune the toe-down frequency. And with its antique, oxidized “road worn” brass casting and custom Alice in Chains tread, this is one pedal that looks as great as it sounds.
Limited to 500 pieces, this Cry Baby Wah is a must-have for Alice in Chains devotees and players who want that distinctly vocal wah sound.
