I use this for my own wah wah sound {instead of a machine that only gives a preset decision made that is most imposible to change on the fly}. This is the way to go to keep/get your own technics to master this world. It has not changed much in price since the last one I got for 150$ in the 80's. I used it then as my only effects pedal for live work. It was great then, and now. Even more now with all the advanced music players with such great works giving the art huge movement. You should try it after listening to some demo's first to make sure you are really ready for this effect. Myself, I like the on/off button and travel of pedal. I have tried a crybaby and others. This is my set-up preferance, and {the slim-line and size of foot space} fits my comfort zone so I can try to get more done without any distractions. I spent under 100$ For Happiness that has me re-living a wah wah that works perfect for me. This is the best wah wah ---THERE----I said it!!!

The thing is worn out in a week,[ and was not as good as one made 35 years ago ] - sounding good for a month than needs to take such a fight to try to get the sound that it distracts from the song and I just can't take it anymore! I miss my old one. I used it for 4+ years with no changes in sound. THIS IS HARD TO DO, because I loved morley, AND THEY BROKE MY HEART!!

Volume Pedal??? NO ON/OFF switch

By NO NIck Name

from NYC pro musician here

Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

I thought I was buying a volume pedal? turns out it's an on/off switch. The entire volume level happens in one micro movement of the pedal somewhere
in the middle of the movement of the pedal. You need to fix this!!! A volume pedal should have a continuous increase in volume as the pedal is depressed. NOT THE CASE HERE.

Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

I gave this unit a shot.
Since it was the only Wah/Volume pedal in the market.
The wah sounds okay but it cuts the sustain on my 5150.
The volume is worse.
The amp loses its balls at lower levels.
It acts more like an expression pedal than a true volume pedal.

Good Features in a small package

By astrumr

from Oregon

Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

What's good: Volume and Wah in one pedal, LEDs (no pots) for quiet, reliable operation. Not so good: Volume is touchy, feedback when using wah. I bought this because it gave me volume and wah in one pedal, saving room on my pedal board. The wah won't make you sound like Slash, but I don't use a wah that much in my music, so this is fine by me. Out of the box I didn't like the volume taper, but I changed it by filing the aperture that the LED shines through. Much easier to control volume now. The feedback sometimes happens with my humbuckers and hollow-body guitars, not with my single coils. I just to use the volume knob on my guitar to control it better.

            Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

            I have had several Cry Babies and Vox's, in the past, but I think this Morley pedal is the best sounding of all of them. With the guitar gain turned up to 10 and a good fuzz pedal with lots of sustain you get a clear distinct sounding wah. Some of the other pedals I have had seem to act like volume pedals when you use them with a lot of distortion. If your used to playing a Cry Baby or a Vox this pedal takes some getting used to because the amount of pedal travel required to get a good wah sound is small compared to the more conventional pedals since this pedal uses an optical device to achieve the wah sound. When I first got this pedal and I started playing my favorite songs it sounded kind of cheesey until I adapted to the pedal and reduced the amount of up motion on the pedal.

              Morley Power Wah Volume

              By RebbeSoul

              from Israel

              Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

              I just picked up this pedal and have used a Dunlap volume pedal and Cry Baby wah-wah in the past. The Morley is much quieter due to its optical circuitry. The wah wha sounds really good too. In fact, I actually prefer it to my Cry Baby. The volume pedal needs some kind of a taper or adjustment for the sweep sensitivity though. As far as I can tell there is no way to adjust it. My Dunlop is far superior in that regard.

              Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

              This is one of the most solid wahs I have ever used. It also has very good tone. The only problem is that there is no actual 'sweep' because there is no middle tone its either one tone or the other so it would work better as a tone pedal than a wah. The volume part works reasonably well.

              Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

              i got this pedal not too long ago and i have to say its a pretty good pedal. After comparing it to a crybaby, i found that the wah on this was more pronounced. the volume is a little touchy but still works fairly good. My only complaint is that whenever i switch from volume to wah, i get a large abount of feedback and really loud hissing. maybe its just mine, Im probably gonna get it checked out anyway. But other than that it's a really good pedal and is just as good as some double the price.

              Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

              I recently ordered this pedal from my local music store, and as soon as I heard it, I was amazed. Its a very nasally sounding pedal, which was what I wanted. But there were a few things I noticed that I didnt like. First, as soon as I got home with it I noticed that it was a wah/volume pedal, I had order just the power wah its self this is no big deal really, I dont see the need in any volume pedal anyways. Second, the volume mode is not that good because theres so little middle range, its basically off or full. Third and most disapointing, the switch is on the side, and it makes turning it off and on a hard process. For the music I play, its vital that th wah is switched on as soon as possible for playing lead. But I'm sure after practicing with it, this problem will be solved. I hope. Other than those things this pedal is amazing. Its sounds better than any other wah pedal out there, its built to last (its huge and weighs atleast 10 pounds), but again is hard to use. Dont be discouraged just try it out.

              Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

              I was looking primarily for a volume pedal and thought why not just get this combo pedal. I have been using a VOX wah and have tried several brands before choosing the 847. What a surprise I got when I plugged this Morely in, the thing is so quiet I can't believe it. The wah is much more pronounced than anything I've ever played. It has a considerably longer throw and doesn't break up at all. The volume control is a little to sensitive but I can live with it. I don't think I'll be using the VOX any more other than for backup.

              First of all, I didnt think it was so big! I barley fit it on my skb model pedal board. The wah setting was great overall. distortion, clean were awsome. however, I thought the volume setting would be more sensitive. I hardly got any difference out of it. It's built sturdy also! I've only had mine since yesterday. only time will tell how it holds up in the future.

              What a piece of junk this is. I replaced a Morley Power Wah from the '70s with this, needing a volume pedal, but the Wah and the volume quit working within weeks. The '70s Morley still works, just noisy.Won't buy Morley ever again. No quality anymore.

              Very little middle ground with the wah effect. I like a gradual wah and volume control, not all or nothing. Also, the loud "POP" when switching between modes is unacceptable. You'd have to switch during an intense part of a song for it not to be noticed.

              Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

              It does what it has to, no more, no less. It has a wah level control knob, and a metal button on the side of the top to turn on or off the wah. unfortunately, everytime you press that button you can hear a loud click, very bad for quiet songs. The wah is very nasaly when in the middle or up, when it's down it is not doing anything so it doesn't affect sound. the volume pedal is pretty much either on or off, not much in between. it is pretty solid, but I am hesitant to put much weight on it, and I'm a very small person. I do not think I would buy this again if it breaks.

              Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

              Bought this as a used 2nd from Morley. Only cosmetic flaws (which I have never been able to find). AS others have said the Volume pedal has no sweep and even after playing it for 2 years, its gotten better but still doesn't have much use. The wah sounds ok, but my issue with it is that while it is supposed to have a true bypass, it actually muddies the sound of my amp. I sparingly use it so its not that big of a deal, but if it broke or was lost I would spend the extra $$ and get a dunlop...

              Comments about Morley Power Wah Volume Pedal:

              I like the way the pedal switches from wah to volume and visa versa. The pedal is a short throw which I admit is comfortable on the foot and includes all the sonic or dynamic (volume) range. All in all this is a cool pedal. I'm a purist and this is the only pedal I'll use! It's musical as stated above and won't kill your tone or your pure signal coming from your high end guitar cord.
              The Morley PWV is very musical...It's both a good wah and a good volume pedal.
              It's not the super clunker Morley tank of the past but it's metal bent into shape
              by Americans! Personally I like the way the sweep and optics are set up as is!
              Got it new from Musicians Friend. Better than used on ebay!
