    It's personal prefrence. They're two different beasts so you should let your own ears decide.

    In the quality aspect I have had my Morley for 5 years or so. It has had stuff spilled on it, people have fallen on top of it, lots of usage plus transporting on a plain board with no protection (and not always the greatest of care) and it has performed flawlessly. So I'd call it reliable and I have no experience with the Dunlop.

    I had a regular Dunlop Bass Wah and now I've switched to the Morley and it's killing me getting accoustomed to the switchless circuitry. I enjoyed setting the Dunlop in a certain position and leaving it for parts of songs, but I can't do it with the Morley and it's also to try and do a sweeping wah without turning the pedal off. However, I love the pedal and the switchless part is great too.
  7. where can I find a find a Sound Clip from the PBA-2??
    I'm also interested in that...

    thank you

    I like them both, but I much prefer the Morley, but the Pro Series II Bass Wah, the blue one. It's the predecessor to the PBA-II and frankly, I thought it sounded much more pure and friendly. The PBA-II seems a little less "nice" for lack of words.

    The Dunlops were fine, both the white and black one. The White Bass Crybaby had a similar feel as far as being springloaded and switchless, but had a much different sweep. Almost hard to get used to. The black one I most often used in a Ron Popiel "set it and forget it" fashion.

    They're both completely opposite monsters, and one must play both to decide which is better. I liked the Dunlop until I landed a Morley and I've been on the hunt for another Morley since I sold mine in a fit of poorness. They're both exceptionally built units, and will offer you years of quality tone.
