    My rig has clean and dirty channels.


    Now I wanna do a Timmy C style set up where I can run a clean channel wah and a dirty wah via one pedal (like with a wood plank or sumthin). My problem here is how to attach said wood plank to the pedal surfaces and not make it look too ghetto. I am thinking sticking velcro to the pedals and wrapping the wood in fuzzy carpet then sticking it on top of both wahs. Does anyone here have an alternative approach?

    Erm, i dont know how to do this, but Timmy C doesnt actually use his Wah on the clean channel, he uses it on both his dirty channels.

    maybe you could attach the pedals at the front of the toe. find somebody who knows how to weld ;)

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    Remove the machine screws holding the backplates onto your pedals, and any rubber feet that are attatched. Drill holes through the plywood carefully matched up to the holes on your pedals, and screw longer machine screws through the bottome of the plywood into your pedals.

    Congrats, your pedals are now bolted directly to the plywood. Cover the wood with whatever you want (preferably beforehand). It makes changing batteries a bit of a pain on non-Boss units, but those pedals aren't going anywhere, and it looks clean.

    I only see the Wah pedal. You're using the Morley and what else?

    TP, I'm getting a 2nd Morley from Adam.

    Jabber, thanks. That's a great idea.

    Db. I know, but I only have two channels.

    I'm fairly certain that Timmy C. just puts wood boards accross his at the toe and heel. Anything would really work with that, perhaps even double-sided tape so long as you're gentle.
  10. I don't understand why you wouldn't want it to look ghetto!?

    Yah thats what im saying, surely u could get a Timmy C type sound with only wahing ur dirty channel, so only needing one wah, so not needing to connect 2 wahs

    Why not use just one wah with an a/b box that goes to both amps? Then you can use both, or just one.

    Well, if you're getting a 2nd Morley, it's easier than it looks. My biggest concern was using two different types of Wahs, in which the pedal's travel would be different, especially with one being switchless, and IMO would have been a logistical nightmare lining up the fulcrum's and having different sweeps.

    This is much easier than you can imagine. First, shoot an email to Morley asking for an extra tread, say you bought a wah second hand and it's missing the tread on top. They should send two. These are for if you ever go back to single wahs.

    You'll need to remove the treads, they come off rather easilly, drill holes or use a darn strong glue. Don't try removing the rocker pedal as they're pretty close to impossible to get back on a Morley pedal.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Too late, I already bought a 2nd wah :) Plus my wah comes after distortion so I can't keep a 100% clean signal if I went the A/B box route. That's a good idea that deserves to be filed for future use though.:bassist:

    TP thanks for the tip.
  15. industrial strength velcro and a 3/8" wood board cut to size works well for me...i use 2 105Q wahs
