Morley Releases the Cliff Burton Tribute Power Fuzz Wah

A limited-edition model made in collaboration with the late bassist's father.

Glendale Heights, IL (December 27, 2016) -- Morley, makers of pedals, switches and Ebtech audio solutions, in collaboration with Ray Burton (Cliff’s Father) have released the Limited Edition Power Fuzz Wah in chrome. In 2015, Morley released the Cliff Burton Tribute Power Fuzz Wah, one of the most sought after Morley pedals in the history of the company. This combination wah/fuzz has separate wah level control, fuzz level and intensity as well as a modern/vintage switch to select between two types of fuzz. The Wah and fuzz can be used individually or together.

“When we released the Tribute Power Fuzz Wah,” points out Morley’s Scott Flesher, “It was an immediate hit as people had been asking us to do this for many, many years. It was originally released in silver but Cliff fans kept asking for a chrome version like the original Tel-Ray Morley version.”

Morley’s Bill Wenzloff adds, “This Chrome version is an extremely Limited Edition so there will only 500 pedals available worldwide. Make sure to get yours right away before they’re gone! In addition, some will be autographed by Cliff’s father Ray Burton!”

The Chrome Power Fuzz Wah is suitable for use with guitar, bass, keys or any other instrument you can plug into it. It is housed in a mirror finished chrome cold rolled steel chassis, equipped with dual LED indication, our Quick Clip battery door and has a street price of $250.00. There will be 250 units available in our World Famous Optical design and an additional 250 units in our M2 European version. As with all Morley’s, it comes with a no-hassle two year warranty.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
