Jerry Cantrell, guitarist and driving force behind Alice in Chains now has his own signature wah pedal. Cantrell helped Alice in Chains to become one of the most successful bands to emerge from the early ‘90s Seattle grunge scene. His melancholy wah-drenched melodies in Alice in Chains classics like “Man In The Box” and “Rooster” saw him become one of the most influential guitarists of a generation of players.
Dunlop has honored Cantrell’s distinct wah pedal sound with the Dunlop JC95 Jerry Cantrell Signature Crybaby Wah pedal. Cantrell prefers a wider and darker response with his wah’s, giving his sound a very moody feel. That sound is what Dunlop aimed to reproduce with 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, antique, oxidized “road worn” brass casting and custom Alice in Chains tread.
