This pedal sounds great.

You just step on it and it will be there, you just step out and automatically it will deactivate!

It's extremely well built, almost like a tank with full metal chassis.

I've had few different wahs over the years, all of them noteworthy, but I found that I hardly ever used them. Not sure why.
Since I've had this Bad Horsie 2, I've had it along on every gig, and I use it on several solos each show.
It's very convenient, in that you don't need to kick a toe switch on or off. The wah instantly engages when you put your foot on it, and disengages when you withdraw your foot. This saves you the experience of going back to do a vocal, only THINKING you've turned the wah off.
Another feature I like is the high-quality input buffer. It normalizes your signal, keeping the guitar at steady volume levels while working the wah. I've noticed with some wahs that not all frequencies kept the same strong signal. This one appears to have solved that problem.
There's also the separate contour circuit which is nice to give you a bit more flexibility with your settings.
Plus, it's built like a tank.
Over all, I'm very happy with this product.

I bought this for my nephew, who loves it. It's easy to use, good control of the wah. As far as the extra knob for the Bad Horsie 2, it's hard to say if it's worth the extra few bucks or not: It allows depth/shape control, but we played with it and, pretty much, once you've set it how you like it, you don't change it. It's more like a tuning knob than a control knob, in that sense.

But the sound is nice and clean and the pedal's tough and can take a beating.

The very first thing that caught my attention in the Bad Horsie Wah was that you don't need to step on the switch before using the wah, and that works really well. The is some king of pressure system that when you step off the wah leads the pedal back to a "idle" position. After some time in that position the wah automatically turns off. The time can be regulated, you just need to be aware that if you, while playing, leave the wah on the idle position for too long, it you turn off (that would be the closest to a "con").

About the sound, it is pointless to say anything, if you like aggressive wahs, like Steve Vai (duh), than thats the way you're looking for. The contour is a plus, but to be honest I rarely use it.

easy stuff...you just step off and it turns off...this alone is worth!!!.....but this pedal is pretty customizable...you can change your range or sweep with a exacto knife. i wasnt too happy with sound, wrote to morley, they sent me instructions to customize..and VOILÁ...everything changed radically....some people doesnt know this and the think the pedal is wrong...

i love my pedal...i used in studio live and home and it really rocks!

For me, this wah was exactly what I was looking for.
I really loved this Digitech wah that I had about 20 years ago. The thing died after years of use / abuse, so I bought a Dunlop (Classic with the fasel inductor). Although the sound was acceptable (not great), it was only a matter of a few months before I started to have problems with the on/off switch and the potentiometer started to make some noise. Mind you, I am not a heavy user of the effect at this point, maybe used 50 times in three months.
Disappointed, I bought a Behringer HB-01 to try it out. At the price (about $30), I thought it was worthwhile to give it a try . Lo and behold, it is a good pedal with a nice range of sounds. May be made pf plastic, but I have had zero problems with it. I still use it and will keep it. Decent wah pedal. But, and when I listen to recordings done with that old Digitech wah and the Behringer, I don't have exactly the sound that I want. So, I kept on looking.
On to the Morley Power Wah / Volume pedal. Great pedal, great sound, built well, but not exactly the sound that I wanted. Still a keeper, but not perfect. Maybe I am too picky....
I decided to give this Bad Horsie 2 a shot. Now this is what I wanted all along! The standard "Bad Horsie" mode wah sound is excellent, but aggressive.When you use the contour mode, you can adjust the range and level of the wah effect over a wide range. For me, this was what did the trick. I have found several different contour settings that work really well for me and exceed the quality of sound that I perceived with the old Digitech.

The best wah I have ever used. Very clean, no tone suck. Steve must have given good advice when he collaborated on this one. The bypass can be set and there is no buzz when the unit is not in operation. A winner. Wah to your hearts content.

This is the best wah I've ever used. I've used a different Morley wah for about 20 years (WAH-SP) and it still works great. This one seems to be just as much of a beast, a pleasant surprise in a world where things seem to have steadily turned into under-engineered garbage that is designed to last 1 day longer than the warranty. Congrats to Morley for still making quality stuff.

One thing different from my WAH-SP is that this has a built in "delay" in the switching mechanism. I preferred 0 delay. This can be done, but requires removing the bottom plate. Not to scare you - it's just 4 screws and they tell you how to do it, but by default there is a delay in the switching mechanism that wasn't there in the WAH-SP that I found annoying. Guess Mr. Vai likes it that way, and I'll let that go, because I'm just glad Morley is still making this type of pedal.

The frequency curve is odd at first, if you are used to a CryBaby, and it has WAY more travel. If you like to ride the wah to put your guitar back/out front of the mix this thing is fantastic. Not so great for bow-chicka-wow-wow funk, where you rock the wah back and forth quickly, but great for tonal expression, if you get my drift.

Also, I love telling people I have a "Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie 2 Contour Wah pedal" - what a mouthful. :)
