That would be the Morley Power Wah TS is talking about. Problem IS, that's a guitar wah. Don't think it would be ideal for bass. If you're looking Morley then you're looking at this:

I'm not recommending using the Morley or not using it, I'm just saying that using guitar wahs for a bass is usually very ineffectual. Just can't cup those frequencies.

what a waste of a perfectly good sig.

An Epi Thunderbird through a Big Muff and a Morley Power Wah... *sigh*

I have the 105Q and it's a strong pedal that has many, many different sounds. The sound it makes may not be your cup of tea, but if Cliff tone's what you're after, I cannot possibly imagine that being a problem.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Personally, I think it's rediculous how Bass wahs cost, like, twice as much as ordinary ones. I mean, appart from a few capacitors and resistors, I bet they don't really differ to any great extent.

...

The 105Q alone has a low-pass filter. That, coupled with a volume and Q control... and that's just the 105Q that isn't that much more than a crappy GCB-95.

I've got a morley dual bass wah which isn't a bad pedal, quite a bit cheaper than the ones that were linked to aswell.

I don't think it's got all the fancey **** the others have got, but the funk button on it is awesome

Doesn't the Morley DBW have a low pass filter? I haven't tried the 105Q, but I'd like to. I liked the sound of the Morley but there were too many things wrong with it for me to buy it.

I think it does, that's what reviews seem to be saying anyway.

The biggest problem I find with the Morley is you've got to mess about with the level quite a bit or it gets stupidly loud when your foot is all the way down

I didn't like quite a few things about the Morley DBW - it wanted a really hot input which is fine but not ideal when I've got a mix of active and passive basses. The switch was a real pain - it was quite audible when it went to bypass but it was difficult not to inadvertently switch it off when using the effect. The funk mode isn't voiced that different to the normal mode - it just seemed more prominent in the same way the effect was more prominent with an active bass with a bit of treble boost.

I did like it for chords played past the 12th fret though, and it sounded pretty good for slap too.

The bootsy wah is funkalicious.

I tried the Morley Power Wah (unsure what model but it was the one with the "funk" switch) and Im planning on getting one. Nice large pedal, room to make some adjustments, and just a pleasant sound.

I was sort of after that cliff tone too, just with more bottom end. If you feed it a signal from a BASS distortion, that helps immensely.

I have the Morley Dual Bass Wah. It's a little annoying that it shuts off automatically when it rocks all the way back, which was discouraging at first, but I've adjusted to it and the pedal sounds quite good. I think any wah takes some getting the hang of, so it's not too bad. The funk wah setting is good for slap. I use it with my passive Geddy Lee jazz, and I find that it sounds ok with the level knob at full. I haven't had problems with giving it a passive input.

So overall, I like the pedal, but I haven't tried others, so I can't tell you whether it's good compared to anything else.

Well, I have the Rocktron Tri-Wah. Which has three modes: Classic, Normal, and Bass

I Payed 60 for it at my local music store, and it is pretty good (though I don't use it much).

The upside is that your guitarist friend can use it too.
