The MXR JHM9 Jimi Hendrix Cry Baby Mini Wah is crafted to deliver the same dynamic tonal sweep of the original Italian-made Thomas Organ wah Jimi Hendrix used, now with half the footprint of a standard wah pedal.
The wah-wah pedal was just invented when Jimi Hendrix burst on the scene in 1967, but he quickly came to rely on his wah to deliver a stunning array of tones. And to this day, few players' names are more synonymous with killer wah leads and wicked, wah-driven syncopated rhythms.
The wah pedal that Hendrix used was a '60s design by the Thomas Organ Company and manufactured by JEN in Italy-the unmistakable wah tone heard on Hendrix classics like Up From the Sky, Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Little Miss Lover and Still Raining, Still Dreaming.
This pedal is crafted to deliver the same dynamic tonal sweep of that original wah, and it comes in at half the footprint of a standard wah pedal with a classy chrome top rocker and black gator base.
Run a shielded instrument cable from your guitar to the JHM9’s INSTRUMENT jack. Run another shielded instrument cable from the JHM9’s AMPLIFIER jack into your amplifier input.
Turn on the amplifier and begin playing.
To turn the pedal on/off, push the toe of the pedal down until you feel a “click.”
Rock your foot back and forth on the pedal to instantaneously change the effect that the Cry Baby Wah has on the tone of your instrument.
Located under the rocker at the heel of the pedal is an adjustable torque clutch. Turn clockwise to increase resistance or counterclockwise to decrease resistance (Wrench included).
