I just got the Wampler Cranked AC pedal today. Even though the pedal sounds great overall, it sounds really muffled w/ my guitars (humbuckers). I also compared it to all of my other pedals (Lovekraft Chupa, Mojo Drive, CMatmods Buttah,etc.) Very dark sounding pedal. Not sure if that`s what Brian had in my with the design. The basic od/dist sound sound great, kind of right between a AC30 & Marshall Plexi . I`m ending up sending it back to try out his new Flexi Drive pedal figuring it`s in the same ballpark but has more tonal control. Brian definetly has a good ear for overdrive/distortion!
