Dunlop Introduces Mini Bass Wah and Volume Pedals

Dunlop CBM105Q Cry Baby Mini Bass Wah PedalIf you’ve been skeptical to add a wah or volume pedal to your pedalboard because of the space it takes up, Dunlop may have you covered. They unveiled a pair of new Mini pedals at the NAMM Show this year including the CBM105Q Cry Baby Mini Bass Wah and the Volume X Mini.

The new CBM105Q Cry Baby Mini Bass Wah, which they unveiled at their booth during the NAMM Show this year, brings their signature wah sound in a smaller package. “The CBM105Q Cry Baby Mini Bass Wah is the same as the 105Q, just shrunk,” Dunlop bass man Darryl Anders explained. “It has the same features at half the weight and half the size, so it won’t take up a lot of real estate on your pedal board. It’s essentially the same amount of spaces as a Phase 90.” Controls include Volume and Q knobs to fine tune the wah.

Similarly, the Volume X Mini is a pint-sized version of the DVP3 that controls your volume and effects parameters. It also has an aux output that combines tuner and expression output functionality into one jack that can be toggled with an internal switch. “When using the [Volume X Mini] as an expression pedal, you can use an internal pot to set the minimum level of the parameter you’re controlling with the rocker,” the company writes. “If you want to reverse the function of the heel-down and toe-down positions, [it] has another internal switch that allows you to do so.”

Both the CBM105Q Cry Baby Mini Bass Wah and DVP4 Volume X Mini will be available soon with street prices of $119.99.
