    Does anybody own or know of any other wah pedal that can get as close a sound to Burton's other than the Morley PWB? those are extremely rare, so until i can find it, im looking for a good substitute. unless anyone here owns one and is willing to sell?

    I use a Morley Pro Series II Bass wah which is also out of production. The PWB can be found on eBay, probably one or two a week, some go high, some don't. A Power Wah Fuzz (PWF) will give you a similar sound as well.

    Basically, all Morleys have sounds reminiscent of each other. Check out a newer model, you really won't be too far away.

    The blue one is the one I was talking about, it's out of production. Morley still makes the Pro Series Dual Bass Wah.

    I think Cliff used the original Morley guitar wah (was well before they did the bass model) - it's huge and silver, look out for one secondhand or on Ebay...

    thast what the power wah boost is, the Morley PWB wah pedal is the old chrome wah, but its not just a guitar wah, its full range so they advertise its use for gutiar/bass/keyboards
