Over the years, Wampler had tons and tons of folks asking when they were going to produce an overdrive pedal that emulates the sound of a cranked Fender amp.
When Brian decided that he was going to see if he could do it, he wanted to ensure that it was perfect. He must have spent a good 9 months breadboarding and prototyping lots of different ideas, a/b-ing each one with various Fender amps, tweaking and changing until he found the sound that was accurate.
Once he got a sound that he was 100% happy with, he took it to Nashville studio ace Brent Mason to test it out and he loved it. When people play this pedal, they hear The Twin, some say Vibrolux, and some even say Deluxe Reverb. Whatever they hear, it still has that "Blackface" type of sound Wampler was looking for.
When you turn the pedal up, it breaks up just like an amp does when you turn it up. With the addition of the boost switch, you can increase the gain to make it sound like the amp is being driven harder.

Comments about Wampler Black 65 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:
First off let me just say that I'm extremely jaded when it comes to OD/Distortion pedals. The moment I "clicked" this lil stomp box, I was in Black Face heaven! I've owned a Bassman and a 65 reissue and this pedals NAILS it! The gain is actually more than I expected but that's a good thing. Very versatile pedal, you can cover lots of different bands with this one. It's also a great "always on" pedal, as you can get some really sweet clean boosts. High quality pedal, very sturdy and looks pretty cool too! No tone suck, very transparent IF you want it to be. So far no issues, pedal is as advertised! If your thinking about buying it....then BUY IT!
