Morley® was founded in the late 60’s by two brothers Marv and Ray Lubow, but the story of how it all came to be dates back to 1946. Marv and Ray had both served in the Army during WWII (Ray served in the Army Signal Corps) and after being discharged from the service they moved from New York City to sunny Los Angeles. After being left unsatisfied from a series of different gigs the brothers decided to start their own business. Little did they know that this risky decision would not only change their lives, but also help shape the history of Rock n’ Roll.
Ray was a bright young electrician that could fix anything and Marv was driven to be his own boss. Together they formed Tel-Ray Electronics specializing in Television and Radio repair. In the late 40’s Television was just beginning to take over the world. TV repair services were pretty much non-existent and since Ray knew how to fix them, it opened up a huge market for them. Business was booming and they were soon able to purchase a fleet of repair trucks. They also purchased their own building which resided at 81st & Avalon in Watts, Los Angeles.
In 2019 Morley® began reinventing it’s entire lineup of pedals and in 2020 launched the 20/20 series. It was the 10 “best of the best” Wah and Volume pedals redesigned to a more pedalboard friendly size. Morley® also celebrated it’s 50th anniversary in 2019 and was featured on the cover of the local newspaper The Daily Herald.
