Like a few of the other pedals on this list, the PFW Cliff Burton Tribute from Morley is two pedals in one—in this case, both a wah and a fuzz pedal. It’s based off of the original Power Fuzz Wah that came out in the ‘70s. That was the pedal of choice for Metallica bassist Cliff Burton, and this update of the pedal was designed as a tribute to his sound and style.

The fact that it’s a tribute to one of the greatest metal bassists of all time might lead you to make some assumptions about the sound, and while it is great for aggressive styles like metal, it’s certainly not limited to any one genre. It lets you choose between a modern or a vintage fuzz and also lets you adjust the intensity, meaning it can give you an effect to suit everything from funk to rock to electronic music.

As if that’s not enough:

The Morley PFW is designed to sound great on any instrument. We found it just as effective for keyboards as it is for guitar and bass. It’s hard to pass this one up based on its sheer versatility. Granted, it’s on the higher side of the price spectrum and it has a fairly large footprint, but it’s even hard to complain about that considering it does the work of two pedals at once. No matter what you play, the Morley PFW is at least worth a listen.

Features:

  • Effects: Fuzz and wah
  • Wah controls: Level knob
  • Fuzz controls: Level and intensity knobs, mode toggle
