OVERVIEW

A custom designed overdrive built to the exacting specifications of Brad Paisley himself.

After a few years of using Wampler pedals (Ego, Underdog and Faux Analog Echo) Brad’s tech mentioned to Brian that Brad wasn’t 100% content with his tone and maybe Wampler should work together with Brad to make the perfect overdrive to record and tour with.

Paisley’s requirements were quite “simple”. It needs to be clean but get crunchy with some “beef” to it. It needs to have a fluid tone when soloing. It needs to add a little hair to the tone but then but then has to be able to give flat out ball busting gain, oh… but please do not wreck the tonality. It needs to have everything, in a pedal format, but do not make it sound like a pedal.

Over a period of months, Brian made some circuits and sent them off, there were a couple of “tweaks” here and there to be made and then finally, when official “prototype #2.0” landed, it went straight into the live rack and out on the 2010 “Brad Paisley: H20” world tour.

The truly great thing about this pedal is that it’s not only Telecaster style guitars that it works so well with, it brings the best out of your Strat or anything loaded with humbuckers. You no longer need to have individual pedals for your guitars; the Paisley Drive will make each one sing.

The built in tonal controls, the presence and mid contour switches (giving three completely different EQ styles – warm mids, neutral, and a more mid scooped character, will make this pedal one of the most versatile and complete overdrive pedal you have ever owned.

Brad Paisley:
“…we actually recorded this (pedal) in the studio, you know, trying it out. I turned up a Trainwreck Amp that I’ve got and compared the sound of the distortion and it was very, very similar. And that’s a very good test because any time a pedal can mimic a great overdriven amp then you’re on to something…”

    Comments about Wampler Paisley Drive Overdrive Pedal:

    Have several overdrives. Some with and some without mods and this tops them all. Can get the best of a Vox AC 15 driven without the fizz. Works great when rolling back on the volume at guitar or with volume pedal.
    I use a comp, the paisley then a boost in front of my amp or line 6 hd 500. Just incredible the levels of gain and tone.
    Humbuckers sound beefy and splitting or single coils give it that gritty spank.
    For me, the perfect overdrive!

      Comments about Wampler Paisley Drive Overdrive Pedal:

      Got this pedal and used it the next day at a gig. Easy to dial a good tone. Very transparent. this will stay on my pedalboard for a long time. I play country rock and it was just the right amount of grit I was looking for. Also works well stacked with my TS-808. Good job Wampler!
