Your search for the perfect vintage, midrange-infused overdrive is finally over.
There are some overdrives that truly deserve to be called “legendary”. One of them, without doubt, is the green stomp that drove many guitar tones straight into that sweet spot.
At the crossroads of Highway 61 and Junction 49 lies the official crossroads of Clarksdale, Mississippi—the birthplace of the Delta Blues. This historic town, and the famous music that was created there, is responsible for the inspiration behind this pedal—The Clarksdale Overdrive.
Blues and non-blues guitar players have used Tube Screamer® type circuits for years to help them create their personal signature sound. Over the years, countless players have been asking Brian to create that world famous vintage mid-range overdrive. Well, he finally did it!
The Clarksdale is Wampler's take on that world famous lime green overdrive many of us have come to love– with a few great Wampler styled improvements of course. The world of boutique pedals is filled with lots of great clones of that already famous circuit, so what else could be done?
Wampler wanted to create a pedal that would be true to the sound and feel of the original but would have a wider range of tonal options; to satisfy even the biggest tone chasers out there. The addition of a 3-band EQ (Bass, Mids are active, and the Treble is similar to the classic TS tone pot) it allows a player to have a more tailored tonal pallet than the original. The Lift/Smooth switch will also allow a player to either sit in the mix with the Smooth setting or allow your leads to standout with the Lift option. Also, unlike the original “green giant”, the Clarksdale will not “fizz out” as much at low or high gain settings.

Comments about Wampler Clarksdale Overdrive Pedal:
I am always searching for that tone bought and sold a lot of overdrive/distortion pedals. I play blues/classic rock strat or tele my go to for the last few years has been analogman boss super overdrive or a maxon 808. This may be my new #1. I don't use many pedals just overdrive and compressor. This adds nice midrange and the 3 ban eq really lets you adjust the tone. A nice smooth overdrive with great sustain at not overly dirty settings
