In 1967, the Thomas Organ company introduced the "Cry Baby" wah pedal—a thinly-veiled copy of the Vox V845 wah pedal made famous by Jimi Hendrix. Originally manufactured in Sepulveda, California, the Cry-Baby Model 95-910511 became a widely available and heavily influential sound in a variety of different musical genres. According to the original marketing materials, its vocal sweep "makes the grooviest sounds you've ever heard!" While many wah-wahs have come and gone, not many match up to the musical, rich tone of the original vintage units.
This 1976 Thomas Organ Cry-Baby is in remarkable condition for its age. Its battery attachment has been repaired, but it is otherwise all original. It features a TDK 5103 inductor.
