Mark Knopfler’s Dunlop Cry Baby 535 Wah
Mark used this wah pedal to demonstrate how he came up with the “Money for Nothing” riff in the documentary Guitar Stories.
(on Money for Nothing) I had my Marshall there, we turned it as far as it would go – we were going for a pretty heavy sound. I had a wah-wah pedal in it, just to give it something different. So we got the pedal and as soon as it was in it and set – that was the sound.Mark Knopfler – Guitar Stories
In the documentary, Mark is filmed using a vintage 535 Cry Baby wah, however, this model was introduced by Dunlop in 1994, which means that he couldn’t have used it on the original record.
