I use a Morley guitar wah on my bass, the bass one keeps too much of the low end and any bassist who uses distortion wants more AHHHH.
#5
I have one. Ibanez. Quite a unique tone though.

I hear Morley do good ones.

As for famous ones, Cliff Burton based his playing on the wah when he soloed. Bootsy Collins was a wah user too i think.

I do.

Plenty of bassists use wahs. Bootsy, Geezer, JFK and Cliff are a few examples.

I do. Dunlop Original. The bassist from Sleep uses one amazingly. Check out Dragonaut by Sleep.

I know Johnny Christ used one as an effect on the song "Scream". I don't think they're that popular though...
#16
I use one. kinda. not very often, certainly not often enough to pay fora real one but sometimes I use one.

I own and use a Dunlop 105Q. I do use it, but for little more than a fun effect.

Which distortion do you use? I use a Boss ODB-3 and I can only get a good Cliff sound with a Morley power wah. The bass one doesn't give me enough AHHHH, I found it more useful for playing clean bass and still maintaining a low end.

Bootsy Collins was a wah user too i think.

And how. The man was crazy on that thing. Which might be why he got his own signature from Snarling Dogs.

Don't believe me? But wait, I've got proof! http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Snarling-Dogs-Bootzilla-Bootsy-Collins-Signature-Bass-Wah-with-Fuzz-Pedal-?sku=150555

Never been able to try one, but I hear they're pretty dang fly.

what about that bit in "no pain no gain" by scorpoins, that's bass wah, is it not?

Trujillo uses one on Death Magnetic.

I use one... sort of. I actually haven't used it in a couple of months. It's a Dunlop 100Q, I think, and is the same build and concept as a Dunlop standard guitar wah. Fitz said they suck, but I was proud of my $40 eBay purchase, and.... well, I'm definitely starting to see where he's coming from.

I'm currently in the market for a wah, and the two that stand out are either the Morley Dual Bass wah and the Crybaby bass.

The trouble is, I need a multi functional wah. I like the appeal of the crybaby leaving the bass signal unaffected, which makes it seem slightly more practical in standard riffing.

On the other hand, the classic Cliff solo sound of distortion and getting that screeching wah also appears, and as he used a Morley, that makes the Morley seem a better option in that respect.

Both pedals have players who use it in a way I would like to (Timmy C uses a Crybaby, and his tone on Calm like a Bomb is sexy. On the other hand, those classic Cliff wahs do have an appeal to the ex-Metallica fanboy side of me).

Anyone who is experienced with both who can shed some light on the tone of them comparatively?

can be, but I don't think so.

Petrucci does it and Rudess kinda.

John Myung just moves like that on stage in songs like that

So I'd have to go with a guitar wah entirely for getting those piercing wahs . I know I'd be tempted by getting a guitar wah in order to do that, but at this moment in time, I know I'll regret it.

Does anyone know if the Crybaby can produce a similar sort of effect? I love the Crybaby's tone for slower, bigger range sweeps, but how does it handle when you mess around with it at the top end of the sweep?

From the soundclips, that sounds gorgeous! I think with higher Q settings and then going into an overdrive, that could really scream, with and incredibly smooth wah in normal settings.

Thanks for the heads up.
