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

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!

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.

Well, What more can be said about this Great, Brilliant and Awesome Pedal?
It's that famous and it's everywhere.
We are sure, all the pedal addicts have heard, read, talked about this pedal at some point in their life. Few lucky ones like Me may even have played or rather shredded and wah - wah-ed the neighbors with it all day.

We are well aware, Talking anything about this pedal would be highly repetitive as each and every reviewer has spoken his heart out about this Gigantic beast.
But Hey! That won't stop me from all the talking and bla - bla about this pedal as I'm highly excited to acquire one.

So here we go...
Packing:- This pedal comes in a sturdy Red Colored box with Steve Vai Picture on it (What could a die hard Steve Vai Fan ask for more???)
Gathering my wits, I cracked the box open and out comes a gorgeous, sturdy, shinning heavy metal (probably steel).

Built Quality:-
I'll straight away give this pedal a 11 out of 10.
It's extremely well built, almost like a tank with full metal chassis.
Not a pinch of plastic material used anywhere in construction.
This thing weighs a ton in my opinion which reflects it's high quality and the amount of time and money Morley and Mr. Vai invested in designing this pedal.
The input and output jacks feels rock hard and can take on years of plugging and unplugging without a change.
Knobs feel sturdy and smooth as well, without any cracking or creaky noise.
(In fact, I suggest government to occupy each soldier with a Bad Horsie 2 Pedal on battlefield if they ever run out of ammunition.
It can probably kill someone if used as a weapon).
