OVERVIEW

A pedal that captures the "Blackface" sound so well it's scary.

Over the years, Wampler had tons and tons of folks asking when they were going to produce an overdrive pedal that emulates the sound of a cranked Fender amp.

When Brian decided that he was going to see if he could do it, he wanted to ensure that it was perfect. He must have spent a good 9 months breadboarding and prototyping lots of different ideas, a/b-ing each one with various Fender amps, tweaking and changing until he found the sound that was accurate.

Once he got a sound that he was 100% happy with, he took it to Nashville studio ace Brent Mason to test it out and he loved it. When people play this pedal, they hear The Twin, some say Vibrolux, and some even say Deluxe Reverb. Whatever they hear, it still has that "Blackface" type of sound Wampler was looking for.

When you turn the pedal up, it breaks up just like an amp does when you turn it up. With the addition of the boost switch, you can increase the gain to make it sound like the amp is being driven harder.

      Comments about Wampler Black 65 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Personally, nothing beats plugging a guitar straight into an amp and cranking it, no pedals. Attenuators kill your treble response, master volumes choke out the signal, and most pedals give a lot of noise and that plastic sound/feel. This pedal is the next best thing for getting the cranked amp tone - especially if you play a blackface Fender.

            Comments about Wampler Black 65 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I bought this overdrive to replace my old Boss, and it has amazed me since the first time I plugged it in. The controls are fantastic, and the tones remind me of my old Blackface. It cleans up nice, and can get way fat at the twist of a dial. The tonestack is perfect, and this pedal is a definite goto in my travel kit as well as my pedal board. Great pedal!

              Comments about Wampler Black 65 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

              This pedal produces that classic low breakup tone to a "T".
              The tone controls are very responsive, meaning just the slightest adjustment can really alter the sound. But once you find the "spot" it really has the Fender sound.
              Just watch the bass control or the sound can get kind of mushy.
