The Wampler Black '65 overdrive pedal emulates the classic sound of a cranked Fender amp!

When Brian Wampler decided that he was going to see if he could recreate the classic overdriven tone of a Fender amp he wanted to ensure that it would be 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 Brian got a sound that he was 100% happy with, he took it to Nashville studio ace Brent Mason to test it out. To be certain, Brian also took several pedals by other companies that are supposed to do the same thing. Brent knows Fender amps better than anyone, and Brian knew if Brent thought it was good, the Black '65 would be winner. Long story short, Brent LOVED it!

Some players say the Wampler Black '65 delivers the tone of a Fender Twin, some say Vibrolux, some say Deluxe Reverb. Whatever it is that they're hearing, it still has that "Blackface" type of sound that Brian was looking for. When you turn it up, it's going to break up more like the amp would if 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 Pedal:

This pedal actually sounds and feels like the real deal. Like an old deluxe at your feet. Very realistic sounding with more dirt at the top end than would be likely with the original too. Built tough.
