Justin Chancellor is a sonic pioneer. The musical backbone of his Grammy award-winning band Tool, Chancellor is recognised for his percussive bass playing, but is also lauded for his creative, effects-laden melodic parts that really take you on a trip! The Jim Dunlop JCT95 Justin Chancellor Cry Baby wah pedal brings three of his favourite effects together in a single housing — the fluid expressiveness of a custom mid-range filter, the bright aggression of a custom wah circuit, and the chainsaw grind of a vintage fuzz.
In short, this incredible tool (pun intended) is perfect for bassists who want to push the musical boundaries. Whether opening up soundscapes with chords and harmonics, or syncing up with a guitarist to perform arresting single-note unison runs — this pedal gives you plenty to play with!
- 2 Wah Voices — 'U.K. Filter' and 'Wah' modes provide two tone-warpingly distinct variations on a theme.
- U.K. Filter Mode — Thick and throaty, designed to emulate the unique envelope-like filtering of the tone control on Justin's bass. When combined with the built-in fuzz, the U.K. Filter voice generates incredibly smooth, synth-like sounds.
- Wah Mode — Brilliant, aggressive and lush. If you prefer a more traditional wah tone, this mode employs the classic red Fasel inductor and the circuitry of a modified Cry Baby for a gnarlier sound with brilliant harmonics. It really cuts through with the fuzz engaged!
- Wah Select Footswitch — Move between the two wah voices at any time, with separate Volume and Q controls giving you ultimate control.
- Custom Circuitry — In both modes, the pedal maintains the thickness and heft of your low-end by boosting your clean signal at 400Hz and blending it with the effect signal at the beginning of the rocker’s sweep.
- Vintage Fuzz Circuit — Based on Justin’s go-to fuzz; a ferocious device of vintage UK origin. Has a tighter focus than most fuzzes, while retaining much of the bass signal's punch. By default, you’ll only hear the fuzz when using the rocker pedal, but you can kick the switch on the side to run it independently.
