Is the vintage Morley power wah fuzz so expensive just because of cliff.

    I just ordered the PWO for a cheap price but seriously the PWF is going around 200. Is it just because of the demand because of cliff? Is just some fuzz worth it?
     
  2. Probably a bit of Cliff and a bit of the out of make product collector aspect.

    He used a Power Wah Boost, which in my experience was a much more useable pedal. I've yet to find a pedal that does what it does, but for me the size was too much. I wouldn't pay $200 for it unless somebody found a way to stuff it all in a smaller wah housing!
     
  5. Surprised nobody's tried to clone it yet...
     
  6. Cliff never even used the Fuzz Wah!!

  9. you think by now morley, jim dunlop, or whatever would make a burton signature wah.
     
  10. ^ The last bass related item that had Cliff's name on it was a $300 bass going for $3000.

    I never really looked into it but I saw an aria for a few thousand. It's weird. I wouldn't get a signature bass. It's about finding your own sound not someone else's.

    Someone should figure out how to put it into a sneaker.

  14. I got the Morley pfw cliff tribute pedal back in March. It's pretty cool but sometimes the fuzz tone can be a bit.. Idk..crappy? It helps to dial it back. The wah is pretty cool too n i like blending the two together. It is big af tho.. By far the biggest pedal i have
