Dunlop Releases KH95 Kirk Hammett Signature Wah
March 5, 2009
Developed in close collaboration with the metal guitar icon himself, the Kirk Hammett Signature Wah has been meticulously tuned and tweaked to deliver the wah-wah sound that revolutionized metal solos in the '80s and for all time to come. This is the legendary tone that Kirk dials in on tour, using his DCR1SR Crybaby Rack Wah. Dunlop's engineers took Kirk's EQ, volume and tone settings—reflecting decades of blazing Crybaby riffology—and reproduced them with exacting precision. The Kirk Hammett Wah is exceptionally even in response as you move from heel to toe, with a thick top end and full dynamic range. Dare to step into the footprint of a giant. Own a piece of the legend: the Kirk Hammett Signature Wah from Dunlop. List Price $265, Street Price $159; www.jimdunlop.com.
