It is with great sadness that Waltons has learnt of the death of Jim Dunlop, a proud Scotsman from Glasgow and founder of Dunlop Manufacturing, on Wednesday morning 6th of February at his home in California.
Pictured above: Jim Dunlop (right) presenting a Gold plated Crybaby pedal to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Jim has been an icon of this industry for over 50 years, not only producing wonderful products including Tortex plecs, Jim Dunlop Capos, the Dunlop Crybaby and MXR pedals for millions of musicians throughout the world, but a great friend and supporter of musicians and many people in the Music industry. He was a wonderful supporter and friend to Waltons Music for the last thirty five years.
Anyone who met him could not but be taken by his warmth, charm and passion for life.
He will be greatly missed by his family and many, many friends and musicians throughout the world and all at Waltons.
May he rest in peace.
