Morley, the makers of fine guitar and FX pedals, have just announced their newest venture with the 20/20 line of pedals! This new series of units will be comprised of 10 new pedals when all is said and done, but the company is starting out with three new editions of their wah pedals: the Bad Horsie Wah, Power Wah, and Power Wah Volume pedals.
The new 20/20 pedals sport the following features:
- New Buffer Circuit & Better Components
Ever experienced volume drop or tone change because of long cables or whats in your rig? Our 20/20 Buffer circuit protects your tone. It Restores, Improves & Delivers. Stand alone Buffer pedals can cost $75 or more. Our 20/20 Buffer circuit is built into all 20/20 Wah pedals.
- Lifetime Warranty
Our products are built like a tank. In fact, we’re now offering a lifetime warranty on all 20/20 pedals that follows the pedal, not the player. That’s Morley Security.
- Pedalboard Friendly Sizes
All 20/20 pedals are 6.85″ in length, 4.5″ in width and 2.5″ in height. We previously referred to this pedal size as “Mini” but it is now the standard Morley pedal size. The bigger pedals are now referred to as “Classic” size. Prefer the Classic size? Don’t fret, we’re continuing production of a few.
- Switchless Activation
One of our great innovations. Ever thought you switched off your Wah only to find it’s still on? Go Switchless! Simply step on to engage and step off to go to bypass. PLUS handy LEDs show when you when it’s on and off. Prefer traditional switch operation? Check out the 20/20 Power Wah.
Our founder Ray Lubow brought Optical circuitry to the effects pedal world in his quest to build the better mousetrap. Traditional Potentiometers will wear down and get scratchy over time. That won’t happen with a Morley! Optical Wah pedals are also now back int he EU and available worldwide.
- Glow-In-The-Dark Details
Never lose your pedal on a dark stage. Our patented Pedal Glow makes sure you know exactly where your pedal is located. Plus, it looks freakin’ cool.
- Silent Switching
No more of the dreaded “Pop” sound. All 20/20 pedals have silent switching.
About the new line, owner Scott Fietsam had this to say:
“We wanted to offer a line of USA made pedals with all our best features at reasonable prices so that everyone in the world can Try A Morley. We invite you to try one today. You’ll sound better and feel better plugged into your new Morley or bring it back for a full refund. That’s Morley Security!”
The new Bad Horsie Wah (see the demo above) is set for a street price of $169, while the new Power Wah comes in at $139, and the new Power Wah Volume is $159. These three new pedals join the Classic Wah ($99 Street) that was released earlier this year. You can learn more over on the Morley website.
