Description: Sonicake Cry-Bot is the auto wah pedal from our catalogue, featuring flexible and dynamic tonal controls, which will deliver you that classic humanizing envelope filter wah effect. You know that "gooey, slurpy, quacky, syrupy" sound? Yeah, it's made to do that.
Full analog, true bypass. Cry-Bot delivers a very rapid and accurate tracking of your pickin' dynamics. It literally illustrate the saying "Tone comes from your fingers".
Simple controls layout of:
SENSE-- sensibility of the filter; FREQ-- frequency range of the filter; DECAY-- speed at which the filter frequency falls back to the resting poing; PRES-- brightness of the filter.
Cry-Bot also comes with a heavy duty metal footswitch and on/off status LED; aluminum-alloy die cast casing to withstand wear and tear. Road-ready.
An incredibly high quality envelope filter, especially for the price. Only thing you have to do is spend some time playing with it to get it dialed in to your guitar's output levels. I have SUPER high output pickups, and there was almost no roll over on the filter until i dialed my guitar volume knob all the way back to 2-3. Then all the classic "waka" sounds came out. This thing is ultra responsive to touch and playing style, and is almost an instrument to learn, unto itself.
Might be better suited for single coil guitars than humbuckers, but zero complaints.
Nice high quality pedal great tone, no complaints. Velcro and extra cable being included was nice too
Nice addition to the desktop practice rig placed at the front of the signal chain. The wah effect goes off with your pick attack. Sensitivity works best around 9 o'clock. Adjust to taste with the other settings. Fairly wide range of tonal options clean or driven. It doesn't replace an actual wah pedal but if you don't want to adjust with your foot, this is a good alternative. Solid build quality, packed well with an instruction card, a very usable cable (couldn't hear a difference between my monster cables) and some velcro for a pedal board. With it bypassed, I couldn't hear a difference in or out of the signal chain either. The guys at Sonicake make good stuff. Thanks for reading.
I've never played with a digital wah pedal before...
Just the big analog ones.
Obviously, it is a completely different animal.
You can not drive the effect with your foot, but still, this little fellow gives you a lot to play with. You have to play (a lot) with every single knob, and with different pickup combinations. In my particular case, it sounded best with the bridge pickup of my LesPaul. I feel the effect more with a brighter pickup. But then again, it is just my opinion.
The sensibility knob even with all other knobs dialed back to 0, can give you a nice boost (all the way to the right), or you can use it to attenuate (anywhere before 10 o'clock).
And then you can play for hours with the rest until you find the sets that you like.
This pedal gives a very big bang for the buck.
It is a great addition to any pedal board.
So I��ve never used an auto-wah pedal before. I wanted to try one since I don��t much like rocking my foot back and forth like I'm having a seizure. I primarily use regular wah's for the extreme low to highs or for a pure tone boost. This is not the function of this pedal.
This comes with 4 knobs, sensitivity, frequency, decay, and presence. The first thing I noticed is that the sensitivity knob almost acts like a tone knob on a guitar. This kind of gives you a range of a really muddy wobbly sound all the way up to a bright wobbly sound.
Messing with the knobs showed me a couple of interesting options. For one you can dial in a nice splash spring-reverb type sound without actual reverb, which I think is the highlight of the pedal. This sounds great playing funk (as advertised) chords. I do not believe it would substitute for a classic wah pedal however as you cannot quite dial in any way over the top sounds like rocking your foot on a wah really quickly. For me this pedal is essential if you��re playing funk rock or straight funk, but you��ll still want to hold onto your wah for playing Jerry Garcia or Jimi Hendrix kind of stuff. I wish this could emulate that, minus the deduction of a star.
This pedal also conveniently comes with velcro and a small dual-90 degree cable to hook up into your pedal board. It is small yet built very sturdy. The pedal is true bypass.
Great effect. I have other Sonicake pedals and am very happy!
Ok. First off... This tiny pedal sounds HUGE. I wanted a realistic sounding auto-wah pedal and this thing delivers. It took a little experimenting to dial in the settings, but after about ten minutes of playing around with the knobs, I found a very usable and FUNKY wah sound that I love. The sensitivity knob sounds best to my ears at about 9 o��clock on the dial... freq between 1 and 2... and the presence at 12 o��clock. On both clean and dirty tones, this thing rocks!! I don��t know how the sonicake engineers do it for such an affordable price. ��Play that funky music white boy!�� ;)
