Cry Baby True Bypass Pedal Mod

About This Item

Don't let one pedal ruin your tone!
Make your Cry Baby true bypass for a clearer tone.

Nothing is worse than the dreaded "tone suck". This is when your pedals muffle and change your tone when they are OFF! Cry Baby wahs are notorious for this—plug yours in and you'll instantly lose highs, dynamics, and clarity.

You don't need a new pedal. Mod your Cry Baby and fix it forever!
It's easier than you think to get your tone back. With this mod you'll install a true bypass switch, removing the buffer that colors your tone. Now when the pedal is off, your tone will be exactly how you want it.

It's more than just a schematic
We include step-by-step instructions for this mod with detailed pictures. Each step is fully illustrated in color with close-up views of every solder joint, component placement, and lug location.

And we even include directions on how to solder! If you get stuck, give our techs a call—we'll walk you through it.

Start making and modding pedals
We've picked all of the right components to give you the best sound quality and reliability you need when tweaking your pedals. Take your first step into modding (and making) pedals and start customizing your sound.

Note: This mod will not work with more recent Cry Baby wahs with ribbon-style switch connections. Please check your pedal before purchase.

Works for Dunlop model GCB95

By

Verified Buyer


Removing the components from the PCB is delicate work, try to remove as much solder as possible and work slowly so as not to damage the solder points on the board. Following the instructions, the new switch was about 1/32” too short with the bottom nut installed. I could not make the switch activate by pushing on the pedal so I removed the bottom nut and replaced it with the white washer provided. Works great now. Sound improvement is slightly noticeable in the off position. Signal retains more highs than before the mod. The schematic in the instructions is slightly different than my GCB95, but tech support confirmed it works with this model. It does.

I'm giving it three stars because StewMac should have been a bit more clear. I'm sure the product itself would get 5 stars, IF I could get it installed, which I cannot, because my Crybaby is from 1988, and Dunlop changed the components and wiring around 1990. This kit's instructions are based on the newer setup, with no mention or provision for the older pedal. When I contacted them about this, I was basically told "figure it out or send it back". I'm fairly handy with a soldering iron, and built a few kit pedals, but this would be a challenge. This could have all been avoided with a simple asterisk and a disclaimer.

True Bypass Sound

This mod really works like it says. I really hadn't noticed the difference in the sound before installing this mod, but now that it is done, I really can tell the difference. For the price, this is well worth it.

Mission Accomplished!

Package arrived with switch, quality color-coded wiring, and a full color pamphlet with very clear instructions. About 10 solder connections required, plus removal of some small caps/resistors from the circuit board. I would recommend using a light touch when soldering to the lugs on the switch, as I compromised one lug and had to get a replacement switch. Tech support helped me analyze my mistake, and it was very satisfying to complete the job. True bypass with completely uncompromised gt tone!

Easy mod if you've soldered before. Took about 30 minutes. Instructions were clear and accurate.
