--- FOUR MAJOR FEATURE MODS ALTOGETHER INTO ONE 'SUPER' CRYBABY PEDAL ---
 DOZENS OF COMPONENTS CHANGED OUT AND REWIRED. RED FASEL ORIGINAL

In stock and ready to ship. Was just jamming on it tonight when I wrote this. A Killer, near mint condition Hendrix inspired Modified Crybaby. Roger Meyer was known to modify Hendrix's personal wah's in the 60's and 70's for Jimi. This pedal has this and multiple other modifications such as :

The 'Crybaby True Bypass'
Kit (with New On and Off LED)

Now you know when the thing is on with a super bright blue LED. When engaged its the classic wah sound heard on so many records. However
disengaged it sucks all of the tone out of your setup from its buffered input. This mod changes the switching to work in true bypass and completely takes the
wah out of the signal chain leaving your tone unchanged.

The mod includes
1 x
3PDT Footswitch
1 x Trim Pot

1 x Resistor

Rewiring of the PCB


The 'Clyde
McCoy' Crybaby Kit 

In
1966 Brad Plunkett, a designer at Thomas Organ Company/Warwick Electronics Inc,
was asked to redesigned a mid control on a Vox Super Beatle. The switch
originally used ('Mid Range Boost') cost $4.00 and was thought too expensive.
Mr Plunkett was set the task to use a pot instead, which cost around $1. Whilst
at his bench he plugged in a guitar ask a colleague to play as he turned the
knob back and forth. The sound was the birth of one of the most famous guitar effects
of all time. Stealing a volume pedal from a Vox Jaguar organ, installing the
circuit inside and the Wah Wah was born. Unsure of how to market the pedal
Thomas Organ Company approached Clyde McCoy, a trumpet player with a record
called 'Mr Wah Wah'. They offered him some money in return for using his name.
The pedal has gone through some changes but this GCB-95 is now back
to the original Clyde McCoy specs.

Mod includes

2 x Transistors

2 x Resistors
Some rewiring


The '2 Jimi's Switch' Crybaby
Mod

This
Mod switches between the stock capacitor and a higher value capacitor. Jimi
Hendrix had his wahs modded by Roger Mayer which
changes the top frequency the wah sweeps to. Flick the switch you get the fuller
throaty sounding tones of Mr. Hendrix.

1 x
DPDT toggle switch

2 x
Capacitors

Rewiring of topology

So after all this, you now have a coveted work of art to rock on (pun intended). Has velcro on back but never used on a pedal board or live show. Any questions please ask. Thanks for looking.
