Electro-Harmonix Next Step Crying Tone Wah Pedal
A very modern styling of a classic, the Electro-Harmonix Next Step Crying Tone Wah Pedal is quite unique because there are no moving parts at all — no pots, foot switches or gears to get dirty and wear out. Instead, the bottom of the pedal is contoured, which helps make it feel like a traditional wah as you rock it back and forth. The Electro-Harmonix Next Step Crying Tone Wah Pedal features instantaneous and silent switching, from bypass to effect, simply by rocking the pedal forward. No more foot switch that is set so high that the pedal keeps accidentally switching on and off, or so low that you need to jump on it to engage the effect.
The Crying Tone is more than just a simple wah, because, depending on how you calibrate it, you can get several different effects, including a half-cocked filtered wah tone, a choppy, square wave wah, and even a treble booster. Calibration of the pedal is done using a CALIBRATE button on the side of the unit. The Crying Tone features a buffered bypass circuit to preserve your tone when the effect is not in use. The pedal is powered by a 9-volt battery or an optional 9-volt adapter.
