    I'm trying to figure out where and for how much I can get my hands on one of these pedals, any help?

    Craigslist, Guitar Center used section, or perhaps Vintage specialty stores. This pedal hasn't been manufactured for a very long time.

    Morley has a current Power Wah Boost, but it definitely isn't the same. Those old Honkin' huge chrome Tel-Ray Morleys are a really special and unique creature. ;)

    Neither of those has the boost you definitely want the power wah boost. I used to have one and I kinda regret selling it because there are no other wahs like it. But the boost circuit really makes the thing awesome and makes it cut through anything.

    The third pedal in my post does have the boost but on the other 2 would it be possible to either mod the circuit to add boost or use a pedal to add boost to the signal chain?

    Very true, the nothing else quite sounds like old Tel-Ray builds, but they take up so much space, it's ridiculous.
