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.
But the sound is nice and clean and the pedal's tough and can take a beating.
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.
Design: Being a Crybaby, The 535Q has that ubiquitous classic wah pedal look and feel to it. It is more compact and pedal board friendly than the BH-2, which is considerably wider. If you are used to the feel of the treadle on a Crybaby style wah, the Morley’s spring operated treadle, with its steeper angle and longer throw, may take some getting used to. However, once you adjust to it, you may find the 535Q’s treadle action to be fairly limited, clunky and awkward. Personally, I prefer the smoother feel and longer throw of the Morley. The 535Q’s gain, center frequency and Q controls are side-mounted while the BH-2’s knobs are on top. I find the Morley’s controls easier to access than the Dunlop’s controls. The BH-2, of course, has no on/off switch or sweep pot. Battery access is easy with both pedals. The Dunlop’s battery door is a better design, however, since it is hinged and holds the battery firmly in place. The Morley’s battery cover is not attached to the bottom plate and is very easy to lose. The Morley features red status LED’s for when the wah is in use as well as when the Contour mode is engaged. No LED’s on the Dunlop. Either pedal can be powered by a standard Boss style 9V PSU.
Build Quality/Durability: Both pedals are built to stand up to the abuse of regular gigs and touring. The BH-2’s switchless operation and lack of a sweep pot are obvious advantages when it comes to reliability since Morley have removed from the equation the two parts most likely to wear out or fail on a wah pedal.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
