Saturday – Wampler Brad Paisley Overdrive

I’m guessing that most of you know the story about Brian modding a pedal and throwing it onto the stage in front of Brad Paisley?

I’m guessing that most of you know the story about Brian modding a pedal and throwing it onto the stage in front of Brad Paisley? Well, if you don’t…. That’s exactly what happened. During the show, Brian threw a modded pedal onto the stage in the hope that Brad would pick it up and try it. Fortunately for us, and you, Brad’s tech picked it up, played it – digged it and gave it to Brad who took it away and LOVED it. From that point on, he has used and loved Wampler Pedals.

After a few years of using our pedals (Ego, Underdog and Faux AnalogEcho) Brad’s new tech, Chad, mentioned to Brian that Brad wasn’t 100% content with his tone and maybe we should all work together to make the perfect overdrive for Brad 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 you may have 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…”

Sunday – Dunlop Crybaby

The Cry Baby Wah is the most iconic guitar effect in music history. When it hit the scene in 1966, it added a whole new layer of expression to the electric guitar-players such as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton used the Cry Baby Wah to create some of the most timeless sounds in rock.

The GCB95 is a modern interpretation of that sound, featuring the lush, expressive character of the legendary red Fasel® inductor with a more focused high end and a more aggressive and accentuated wah sound. With a heavy-duty die-cast housing and a sturdy pot, the Cry Baby Wah will withstand years of playing.
