Today I came across the Dunlop Kirk Hammett Signature Crybaby wah at Musician’s Friend. It’s on sale, but I didn’t know much about it. I remember back in the day, I was quite into Metallica. Loved the older Kill ’em All, Ride the Lightening and Master of Puppets. I remember the album Garage Days Re-Revisited was an important album to me as well. It was the cross-over album for me from metal to punk to post punk, etc. I ended up being a fanatical Misfits fan because of Garage Days. Misfits opened up the flood gates on many bands to follow for me. It was a great time.
Anyways, looks like Dunlop worked with Kirk Hammett and designed a pedal that maximizes and most closely replicates Kirk’s wah tones.
Here is the official description:
Developed in close collaboration with the metal guitar icon himself, the Dunlop Kirk Hammett Signature Wah Pedal has been meticulously tuned and tweaked to deliver the wah-wah sound that revolutionized metal solos in the ’80s and for all time to come.
Dunlop’s engineers took Kirk Hamett’s EQ, volume and tone settings—reflecting decades of blazing Crybaby riffology—and reproduced them with exacting precision. The Kirk Hammett Wah is exceptionally even in response, with a thick top end and full dynamic range. This radical stomp pedal features cool foot bone graphics.
