    i have a dunlop crybaby 105Q and i do love it although, i could buy a new wah i would of went with a digitech whammy because of the many different wahish things it can do, but who doesn't want the power to do a dive bomb on a bass. :D

    Neither. Both have their pros and cons. Frankly I prefer the Morley, but anyone else can come along and say they like the Dunlop better. It's a matter of preference as they are polar opposites. If you don't like one, you'll likely love the other.

    In the end: TRY THEM BOTH!

    The Dunlop...doesn't cut your lows at a less extreme setting and isn't disgustingly clinical. Mix it with an octaver and overdrive and you sound even better...

    Yup.

    I prefer the Morley myself, but I use an old Morley PWB.

    I have a Morley and I just bought a 105Q from the bay, which will take a week or so to get here, so I can compare them both when it arrives. I'll post again here with what I find...

    I love my Morley DBW, but I don't use it much anymore. I've not tried the Crybaby, but it seemed too... metal. The DBW has the Funk Wah setting, which is a really nice feature IMO. Gives you more of a... dynamic control over the wah.

    I use my Morley Dual Bass Wah every night...and NEVER take it off of the "Funk Wah" setting!

    Well, I just got the Dunlop 105Q, and it is doPE. I have yet to try the Morley, but I doubt it is better. The Dunlop sounds awesome funky, and is definetly easy to use. I had a lot of trouble choosing which pedal to get. I decided to go for the Dunlop, and I am not dissapointed. I reccomend that you go for it too, but it is totally a matter of opinion. Rock on. :bassist:

    I have a quick question regarding these two pedals: Does one have a cleaner bypass than the other, or are they similar tonewise while bypassed? I may pick one or the other up this week and would really like to know. I didn't feel the need to post a whole new thread to ask this question, so please forgive the hijack. Thanks in advance.

    Can anyone try to described their tones and how they are different? What the actual pros and cons of each are...or for any other wah you think is worth mentioning?

    Can anyone comment on the bypass characteristics of these pedals?
