    Hey everyone, first post here.

    Does anybody know if theres a difference between the dunlop JH-1 and JH-1B aside from the look of the enclosure?

    I'm really thinking of getting the Dunlop Hendrix wah. but if I can get the older one for less money I'm Totally fine with that, I dont care so much what it looks like.


    also I"m thinking of buying this mod from Pedal doc:

    for my Original Crybaby. Mostly I just want the true bypass.. I like the way it sounds without the mod. But just curious... has anybody installed this mod on their crybaby? If I installed it and it sounded like a hendrix wah then there'd be little point in buying a hendrix sig wah right? I want to keep my Original crybaby sound (for Tool covers and the like).

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    The regular Hendrix and the new Hendrix wah's are the same - I emailed Dunlop awhile ago (right before the JH-1B's release) on this, and they said "the sound was right, so we didn't change that - only the cosmetics have changed" - I cannot find the original email, though this was the gist.

    Can't say anything about the mod you want to do. I use my wah as my buffer, but that's a whole 'nother thread. I may do the true bypass thing with this myself someday. I have a friend that recommended the Fulltone 3PDT switch, but you get no LED... http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electro...hes_and_knobs/Fulltone_3PDT_Stomp_Switch.html

    Good luck, wah-master!

    HMMM... it does say you can wire an LED to it. I just wouldn't have any idea how to do that without a schematic of some sort.

    thanks a lot!

    I got a Crybaby GCB-95, which was an ok sounding pedal apart from the fact that it lacks true-bypass. Last year I ordered a kit from Pedaldoc. The kit comes with everything needed to modify the pedal (true-bypass and vintage mods), the instructions are well explained and it cost 28 bucks, which I think is a pretty good price. I live in a little town in Australia, and buying this kind of components is really difficult around here, so being able to buy everything in one go was great.

    I also have a Jimi Hendrix pedal, and asked the guy who runs Pedaldoc if I could buy another kit to modify it. He recommended me not to do it, as it seems the circuit is a bit different from the Crybaby GCB-95.
