Yes, it can. I've had mine for one day now and it has a ton of range from clean to dirt. I like it a lot so far. Only thing is I wish the "boost" side was controlled by a toggle switch instead of a footswitch. Would be simpler to use in a live setting.Can the ACE Thirty do a Vox AC 30 clean tone if you turn the gain down or is it just an OD pedal?
Comparing Pete Thorn's youtubes of the Wampler Ace30 and the Boss BC2 combo drive, I came away liking the BC2 a little better, and I am not a huge Boss fan. I still may give the Ace a try. YMMVI am a big Wampler advocate, particularly with the amp-simming products.
I have owned them all. When the Ace 30 was announced, I could not get it fast enough (having owned the Cranked AC), and drove 90 minutes to get it on Black Friday.
For some reason, this one just didn't "hit" with me. I actually sold it, and later tried one again to be sure I had tried everything.
I do think it does a very accurate AC tone print, but I found that I had to constantly adjust the settings to adjust for slight tonal variances and different pickups. I prefer to find a setting that gets me in the neighborhood of the preferred highest gain setting, then adjusting the guitar volume to get into the other territories if at all possible.
I think a little more gain in the un-boosted mode...and it's perfect. I just remember getting very light OD with a Strat with the gain at 4:00 when un-boosted.
For my purposes, the Cranked AC with 30% less overall gain on-tap would be the ultimate. I'm finding the Boss BC-2 (of all things) to be fitting that bill right now.
I would by no means call this pedal a flop (see another thread), but it's just too tweak-y for me...
Another recent Wampler release, the Velvet Fuzz is a must have pedal for someone who does not want or require a board full of fuzz. It's an absolute blast to play. Hendrix/Gilmour/EJ/Stripes and beyond are all in there, and the adjustments to get there are simple and satisfying.
Yes, the boost is more of a mid/top end boost, designed to hit a gain stage (pedal or amp) and give it more gain. Works great as a top boost similar to what Brian May used for the Queen stuff.Are we sure that, boost switch works even the pedal is off?
