Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah VAI-1
BAD HORSIE WAH FEATURES (MODEL VAI-1)
· Electro-Optical Switching: Your pedal features Electro-Optical switching circuitry that allows the Bad
Horsie pedal to go into Wah mode without actuating a switch.
· Silent Switching: To further enhance the noiseless operation of our Electro-Optical design, we've added
FET silent switching. Standard foot switches will pop and click when switching from Wah to Bypass.
Your Bad Horsie offers a smooth and quiet transition, making this pedal ideal for studio recording as well
as live performances.
· Buffer Circuit: Morley's "Clear Tone" buffer circuit prevents "loading" of the guitar signal. Ensures a
strong, clean & consistent output level in Wah or bypass mode.
ADJUSTABLE OFF DELAY: The Bad Horsie Wah has a unique switchless feature. Steve's personal
preference was to have a slight delay time on the bypass (when you take your foot off it takes about one
second for the pedal to automatically switch to bypass). After numerous requests for this to be adjustable,
we incorporated an adjustment located in the pedal. The pedals are still set to Steve's specifications at the
factory. If you would like to adjust the off time, follow these steps:
1) Remove four bottom cover screws and bottom cover.
2) Locate trim-pot labeled "WAH OFF DELAY" (it is about 3 inches up and about 1-1/2" left from the
center heel end of pedal.
3) Use a miniature screwdriver (like the ones used for eyeglasses) to turn the center adjustment of the trimpot
to customize it for your setting.
4) Turning the trim-pot clockwise shortens the off delay time. Counter-clockwise lengthens the off delay
time. The off delay time can be adjusted from instantaneous up to 3.5 seconds.
5) If you have questions about this procedure, feel free to call 847-639-4646 (ext 14).
