    Cliff used a Morley Power Wah Fuzz pedal to play some Metallica songs and solos. But it is really expensive. Is there a pedal that works the same way as that one? I haven't played bass for that long but I'm learning pretty quickly so I would love to get an alternative option since that specific pedal is so expensive..

    Morley says their Mark Tremontu Power Wah is the closest circuit they have to the old power wahs.

    Maybe you can find a cheap one on ebay.

    The rocktron black cat moan would be a good choice for what you're looking for. this wah pedal does have a built-in distortion which would be excellent to play anesthesia(pulling teeth) and the intro to for whom the bell tolls.
