Let's get started by taking a close look at the Vox V845 Classic Wah Wah Pedal. This Classic Wah Wah is based on the original specifications of the pedal developed in the 1960’s by VOX.
The second product we will be examining in this comparison is the Morley PFW Cliff Burton Tribute Power Fuzz Wah. This cold-rolled steel silver and black, non-slip treadle belongs to the Morley PFW Cliff Burton Tribute Wah pedal, and does a great job in emulating the vintage sound.
With its tough all-black finish outer casing, it has been made to withstand the rigours of the road and tough enough to take a pounding from any guitarists boot, whilst still producing the same legendary tone which allows guitarists to emit that muted trumpet sound.
As a tribute to the 70’s sound of the Morley Power Fuzz Wah used by Cliff Burton, the bassist for Metallica, this tool certainly does the job. This vintage emitting effects wah pedal also provides a combination of a Wah and Fuzz pedal. These FX can be used in unison, or independently to create an amazing tone and classic sound.

|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|With the ability to achieve the old school sounds of the 60’s, with a modern twist from this classic Vox Wah, makes it one not to be missed. This is also a treadle that’s been toughened for the life of a guitarist, and offers a strong durable effect mechanism, whilst retaining that yesteryear tone, which no serious guitarist should be without.||Only a true musician can appreciate the combination of FX this tool has to offer, and when pedal board space is limited, it’s the best.|
