Wampler '65 on the way

I just pulled the trigger last night and ordered a new Wampler Black '65 from Prymaxe. Got it for $170 shipped, with their Fall15 coupon.

I'll be using it with a Peavey Delta Blues. So, tell me, am I going to love this thing or what?

Yes.

One of the few dirt pedals that exceeded my expectations from the first strum and still continues to do so.

One of the best overdrive pedals I've ever played. It should match really well with the Delta Blues amp.

Wampler pedals are amazing. I have a Wampler Euphoria on the way, along with the new Hardwire Supernatural ambient reverb from PGS. The Black '65 is on my Christmas list to my wife. I am def a Wampler fanboy. :)

I should say that hope it DOES color the amp. I'm looking for a less midrange focused sound for my cleans. I can't just dial the mids down on the Peavey's EQ, it makes the amp sound weak.

Hoping the Black '65 will make it sound lush, but maintain the thick tone from the amp.

I've read a lot of posts about running the '65 last, after any other dirt. Is this by far the best way to use the '65? I have a paisley too. I'm thinking i should put the paisley before the '65.

It's my personal preference, and also the way most of us at WP use it. Seems many of our customers use it the same way too. :)

how is this pedal with a blues jnr? i'm looking for something that will give me a srv type rhythm sound at bedroom volumes (think pride and joy verses- clean but slight hair/dirt - an amp that is wide open sounding but very small venue volume) i then will hit my 808 for solos. i was thinking of running two 808's but i'm thinking something like this black 65 or maybe the tweed 57 could be the ticket - or even the euphoria for that matter????

I've found the Black '65 to do a great many things. It's a great low gain/color OD, but I really love the way Brian built in rectifier sag and power tube compression so I use it to make my guitar sound like its coming through a Deluxe Reverb on the verge of meltdown.

Great pedal, many uses - well worth the price of admission.

Awesome pedal! I kept putting off getting one due to the price, but recently scored a used one on eBay for a good price. I use it as a drive channel for my PRRI, but can see why others would use it as a tone shaper in non-Blackface amps. All the Blackface goodness is in there, from cleans to crunch and even tweed Deluxe meltdown. The EQ does a lot. Sweet, sweet pedal.

The '65 & the Wampler Plexidrive are my favorite Drives, great dynamics & versatility. The '65 can give my Mesa Express that little extra clean "spank & sparkle' when i want that sound, or thick & saggy with more gain dialed in.

Of course, the c,bread FN5 also sounds amazing, so i will probably "need" to try the Wampler '57 at some point, just because it's out there...
