I am brutally picky about my pedals. If there’s a hiss or whine, I’ll hear it. If it doesn’t inspire me, I’ll find another home for it. Every knob setting has to be musical or it’s history. I have tried every major brand and style and my pedalboards are slowly filling up with Wamplers, currently four. They simply do everything I expect and add something lovely that I didn’t expect at all. Sometimes it’s not the latest version, it’s a discontinued model that does the trick; in any case I always buy two as insurance. Is it because Brian Wampler is a good guitarist whose style I happen to enjoy and whose taste in players I share? Maybe. Is it because his pedals aren’t festooned with dumb trendy graphics and garish paint jobs? Partly. It is because they are quiet and don’t alter my core guitar tone at all unless I want them to? Certainly. Is it because they are consistently musical? Definitely. Are they always perfect? No. I’ve tried one or two that didn’t light my fire but the rest are all keepers. I’ve never bought more than a single model of any pedal in my long musical life, except Wamplers — even current models like the Ethereal and the Reflection (I just bought a spare on the emporium this morning). I want them in my life and I’m not taking any chances. They are just that good. PS: I don’t know anyone at a Wampler and I think their podcast is kinda goofy, but these pedals are among the best you can get and I just wanted to tell y’all about them.
