"For effects I use a Peterson tuner, either a Chandler Digital Echo or an MXR Carbon Copy, an MXR Phase 90, a Boss OC-3 Super Octave Pedal, a Morley Bad Horsie Wah-Wah pedal and a Morley Optical Volume Pedal. I’ve also just started using an MXR Micro Flanger which Joe Bonamassa recently gave me."more
The wah of a lifetime.
The Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah Pedal is set to Steve's precise specs and equipped with Morley's superior electro-optical circuitry to handle the heavy wah. This effects pedal is switchless for easy use. You just step on the pedal to engage wah and step off to bypass. Special buffer circuitry prevents signal loading, gives you superior wah tone, and drives long cables. LED indicator and easy-access battery compartment. Morley gives you a 2-year warranty with your Bad Horsie.
This thing is built like a tank, and I especially love how it auto-engages when you step on it! So you don't have to press it all the way down to hit the button first.
I bought one used about two weeks ago, and it squeaked and creaked like an old wicker rocking chair. Wrote the Morley tech guy and long story short, between my dad and him, I ended up taking my skinny fingers and a flat head screw driver and coating the spring in it and it worked like a charm! (Previous to this, it squeaked over a solid state 100w Blackstar head through a 4x12 Marshall cab at three-four on the volume knob)... Do NOT use WD-40 unless you take it apart and have some knowledge as to what you are doing, contrary to popular youtube-belief...
Anyway, as for the review.. I love it! I wasn't sure about it at first, but the switch-less (contour Wah switch is to activate the knobs, which lets you dial in your preferred sound) design is really innovative. The knobs and switch are cool and all, but in the grand scheme, it doesn't compare to not needing to go forward and down on the stomp switch with the pedal to deactivate it (like a Dunlop Crybaby Wah). It has come to replace both of my crybabies in two short weeks. Cool pedal, give her a try!
If you´re looking for that sounds, standards*. This is not for you, this pedal need some sofisticated-hands instincts to work natural. But sounds brillant when you got the goal. The adding of a contour button make a plus on your sound, like 2 whas... This one is agressive!
