"Originally coming from the blues, I love the sound of a saturated amp with some breakup. The Il Torino produces exactly that in front of any amp, without blasting tubes or ears! Love it!" -Frank Fleckenstein --- @frankfleckenstein #GearCouch #MXR #ILTorino #Overdrive #JimDunlop #PerformanceIsEverything

THE EVOLUTION OF THE CRYBABY WAH: Cry Baby 105Q Bass Wah - 1999 The first wah pedal designed by bass players for bass players, the Cry Baby 105Q Bass Wah only applies the effect to the mids and highs so you can keep holding down the low end. With auto-return switching, you can step in and out of the effect for solos and fills with ease. Head to our blog to learn about the evolution of the Cry Baby Wah.

"This 10 band eq changed my live game! It lets me customize what frequencies ring out to match the acoustics of the room, and I'm so excited to finally be able to hear my more trebly intricate parts and not clash with my bass players frequencies. I'm so grateful that I can hear everything clearly now and have so much control over my tone." -Yvette Young --- @yvetteyoung @covetband #MXR #TenBandEQ #Equalizer #StompBox #JimDunlop #PerformanceIsEverything

"I used the white plastic Dunlop thumb picks for several years until I was introduced to the Ultex material. The Ultex tone is unmatched by any other thumb pick I've tried. They are also thinner and more comfortable to wear" -Grayson Erhard --- @grayson_erhard #Ultex #ThumbPicks #DunlopPicks #JimDunlop #PerformanceIsEverything
THE EVOLUTION OF THE CRYBABY WAH: Cry Baby 535Q Multi-Wah - 1998 In 1998, we came out with what we like to call the Swiss Army Knife of wah pedals. The Cry Baby 535Q Multi-Wah (originally 535 Multi-Wah released in 1994) provides control over the most important wah parameters so you can create your ultimate wah tone. Choose from six different frequency ranges, set the intensity of the wah response, and boost your effect signal by up to +18dB so you can rise above the mix when you kick the switch.
