John Frusciante’s Dunlop 535Q Cry Baby Multi-Wah

John used this pedal briefly around late 2004/early 2005. It’s unknown for which purpose he had it on his pedalboard since he used his Ibanez WH-10 Wah pretty much exclusively throughout his RHCP years.

One possibility could be that he was having issues with his WH-10 towards the end of the By the Way tour (which is a vintage model and hard to find replacements for), and the 535Q Cry Baby was there just in case he needed it.

He used this on the song, ‘She Looks to Me’ during the solo. You can listen to it, and hear that the tone of the wah is quite different from his WH10 wah.
