    I have an automatic silvermachine wah...Anyone think there is a better switchless wah than this one?

    I have the Morley Bad Horsie II and the Ibanez Screaming Demon, both are switchless wahs, the Bad Horsie II has a contour wah as well as the Bad Horsie wah, and it is my favorite, the Ibanez Weeping Demon has a lot of adjustments, but is more for Jazz, not that great distorted, the Bad Horsie II rocks clean and distorted.

    I am frustrated by the other wahs, they are hard to turn on and off, and the pots wear out, the electro optic pedals don't wear out I have Morley Little Aligator Volume Pedal which I really love, and its still working after many years, I have thrown away every passive volume pedal because I have worn out the pot, the same with the wahs with pots, they wear out after a while.

    I have a Bad Horsie II which works very well. The heel down position gets a little tricky. If you go to far the wah is off but once you get used to it it's pretty good bang for the buck.

    No. There is an internal buffer always on.
    I am biased, didn't like the Bad Horsie at all; found it very susceptible to noise when off, and noisy when on, didn't like the tone, etc.
    The Silver Machine is dead quiet, has a better buffer, and has far more tonal range.

    I had a Bad horsey and a Silvermachine MK2.

    The Silvermachine isn't TB either.....but I couldn't hear that.
    I liked the Silvermachine more.
