Earlier this year, Tom Morello surprised fans when he partnered with Fender to design a replica of his beloved guitar, Soul Power. Now, the famed guitarist revealed a new piece of gear: a signature Cry Baby Wah Wah pedal.
"I’m proud to announce my new signature @JimDunlopUSA Cry Baby Wah Wah pedal—available now!" Morello wrote on Instagram Thursday (October 15). This is the exact same pedal that I have used on literally EVERY album and at EVERY show I have EVER played (I added the fancy artwork for this release!)."
He partnered with Jim Dunlop and customized a GCB95 wah wah pedal with powerful quotations pertaining to his other passion: social justice.
The Rage Against The Machine axeman signed a number of pedals, with proceeds going to Jail Guitar Doors USA — a non-profit organization dedicated to providing musical opportunities to help rehabilitate prisoners — however, those are sold out.
See Morello's announcement post below.
After fans equip themselves with a Soul Power guitar and Cry Baby Wah Wah pedal, they can get the full experience by learning guitar from Morello himself. He's one of many celebrities teaching a virtual MasterClass based on their expertise. Learn more about his particular class here.
