It's just his label for the capacitor that fits in that spot in the schematic. It's "cbp" isn't a universal label...just something he uses to refer to that cap. If he had a full schematic for a specific wah, it would just be referred to as "C1" or "C14" or whatever.

He says that it's "Important that it be large enough to bypass all signal at its (+) terminal to ground. From 4.7uF on up, little effect on sound. As it gets smaller, the sound becomes more of a loudness variation and less of a wah. If this cap is defective, wah pedals sound like volume pedals."
