    I use the Morley dual wah. It's a great pedal. It's the only pedal that I always leave connected in my rig. Other pedals come and go but that one is always there.

    I understand that pedal is also used by Bill Dickens (if that matters to you).

  4. OP, you will likely get more responses if you type somewhat more intelligibly. Reading your posts hurts my brain.

    He could be ESL.
  6. I doubt that, as their written english is generally very articulate, aside from some syntax errors. And ESL or not, everybody capable of typing understands capitalization, punctuation, etc., as they're not unique to English.

    However, go with the dual bass wah.

    for the wah, go with the Morley Dual Bass wah, and a big muff for your drive. If you can, you could also try to dig up an old Morley Power Fuzz wah, or get the Bootsy Collins Snarling Dogs Fuzz Wah.

    distortion / drive wise i've had good experiences with the MXR bass DI+, Drive side of the hartke VXL , Ashdown LoMenzo Hyperdrive, boss MD2, bass big muff. All have got me similar sounds to cliff, megadeth player of the week, trujillo (pre metallica and current).

    Wah wise, i found th dunlop 105q to be too subtle, no matter how i set the controls, and thought it sounded like a wah with a small w - too polite. my experience of the morley wahs is not huge, but the ones i tried didn't quite get the sounds i was after. However the wah i have been using for nearly five years now, with no real thought of replacing is the Ibanez Weeping Demon. It is the single most adjustable wah i have ever come across. It wahs with a very large capital W. i like it so much i now have two!
