Morley, produces the outstanding Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah and the Steve Little Alligator Volume (as well as many other extremely cool pedals). I'm now an official "Friend of Morley", so my name will appear on the Morley website and in their print catalog. I used the Bad Horsie Wah and Little Alligator Volume extensively on my new album, Loss for Words. The pedals are both extremely quiet (great for recording), and extremely tough (great for playing live). Many thanks to Bill at Morley for getting me set up!
I'm happy to be a Dean Markley Strings endorsing artist. They make what I believe are the finest strings on the planet: Dean Markley Blue Steel Strings.
