Morley Releases the Cliff Burton Tribute Power Fuzz Wah (VIDEO)

By BP Staff ,

The most sought-after pedal in Morley's history is back. In collaboration with Ray Burton, the father of late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton, Morley has released a tribute version of the pedal that Cliff used, the Power Fuzz Wah.

The Power Fuzz Wah is a classic wah pedal with built-in fuzz. It features controls for level, fuzz level and fuzz intensity, plus a Modern/Vintage switch to select between two types of fuzz. The wah and fuzz effects can be used individually or together.

“This is not a reissue,” points out Morley’s Bill Wenzloff, “The original Tel-Ray Morley version was extremely large, had a power cord attached, had no battery option and is simply not adequate for today’s players.

“The sound and tone, however, were duplicated exactly. The combination of the fuzz and the wah is what gave Cliff his signature tone, especially when soloing. We wanted that aspect of the pedal to be the same but with a modern look and features. This is the most sought-after pedal in Morley’s history, and we are honored to be able to finally release this to those who have been asking for it for so many years.”

Although Burton made the pedal famous, it was originally a guitar pedal and was designed to be used as well with bass and with keyboards. True to that original design, the Cliff Burton Tribute Power Fuzz Wah works with guitar, bass and keys.

The wah is housed in a roadworthy faux-chrome chassis of cold-rolled steel. It has dual LED indicators and an easy-access battery compartment. It’s made in the U.S. and comes with Morley’s no-hassle two-year warranty.

STREET PRICE: $158
