After playing the morley classic wah, I figured this one might be better for the Kirk Hammet like tone I wanted. It was great on the clean channel. On the overdrive channel it had problems. I am running it through a Marshall MGDFX and if you crank the gain up to high the gain over powers the wah and its barely recognizable, but if you put the gain to about 6 or 7 it's great. Great deal except for one warning, get a 9volt adapter. This pedal eats batteries faster than anything I've ever seen. It went through 2 9volts in about 3 hours and when the 9volt goes you're screwed.

Great wah tone. Only complaint is the massive signal boost when activated. Which is cool when you're soloing or perfoming any sort of lead, but not for expression, volume, or layers. Very specific use.
No adjustment. The way it is, is what you get. If you're looking for something else, try the Bad Horsie 2. Gives you some control.
Like all Morely Products, it's a tank. Very rare to drop one of their pedals and not have it work again.
Considering how long it's been out and also that there's a 2nd version, kinda feel it should be around $99 tops.

          Comments about Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah Pedal:

          Other than being a great sounding wah, the best thing for me is the immediate response. When the moment comes and you feel the need for wah, simply step on the pedal and the wah is there. With a conventional wah, by the time you step on the switch to turn the pedal on the moment of inspiration has passed. When you are through using the wah, take your foot off the pedal and the wah stops. No need to step on a switch to turn off the pedal thus eliminating one more thing you need to think about as you play. All in all, a great sounding pedal that is rugged and easy to use.

          Coolness

          By Jeff Tauri

          from Wisconsin!!!

          Comments about Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah Pedal:

          I did a bunch of research and tried almost evey wah pedal made and some that are not made anymore. The main reason I choose this one is because it doesn't have a switch and a pot to go bad and as soon as you step off of it, it turns off. With the other wah pedals when you step on the switch you're already at the top of the sweep with this one it starts at the bottom of the sweep and you go up from there. My next one will be this or the Bad Horsie 2.
          I lke this because it doesn't have a switch or pot to go bad.
          Really well built. formed steel not cast that can crack if abused.
          I've owned it for abotu eight years and no problems yet.

          Comments about Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah Pedal:

          i bought this more because of not having to switch it on and off, when i got it i used the effects loop on my amp and thought there was way to much low range so the other day i went straight to my amp now its more balanced and less touchy as it was before so if you buy this product i recommend not using an effects loop

          The be all and end all for metal wah pedals. Period.

          Comments about Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah Pedal:

          Forget all the fancy paintjobs and costly endorsements of the Dunlop signature lines of wah pedals. None of them stand a chance against the original Bad Horsie Wah. Developed by Steve Vai this pedal is made for high gain shredding. The samples on this site don't do it justice. On top of the sound the switchless use is amazing. No more slamming down to activate your wah or awkward transitions. This pedal is pefect in every sense. If you are looking for a more funk or classic rock wah, go with a Vox 845A. If you play metal and hardcore, this is your wah. End of story.

          excelent wah

          By Eddie de Pool

          from nashville, tn

          Comments about Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah Pedal:

          I bought this wah over 6 years ago, and have still had no trouble out of it as far far as parts and craftmans ship are concerned. It has always been an extreamly reliable wah. I run it in chain as opposed to my other pedals which are in the loop effects circuit. I have used this on multipule amps as well. Fender Pro reverb, crate stealth 50 head, Fender 212, and my main amp, a Mesa f-50. It always sounds better in front of the distortion. My only complaint is that it seems usless in clean channel cause the wah explodes in volume when you turn it on. My guitar tends to be weak as if the thing is completely true bypass as well. After putting a Jekyll and hyde from Visual Sound in my rig after the wah, my tone was like boom (with J&H off) So I'd have to say if it has a buffer, it isnt very good. Mainly use it for dirty channel only and it's awsome for that

          Keeping your tone the way you want it!

          By Shawn Walsh

          from Houston, TX

          Comments about Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah Pedal:

          The Bad Horsie is the best wah created. Not only good for it's switchless system but for it's simple action. When you let off the wah your sound that you created comes back too life instantly. I will never goto the Bad Horsie 2. It has too many moving parts that can go wrong. Sweeping knobs and switches all can get dirty and effect your sound. For all you tube driven guitarist the bad horsie 1 is for you.
