Overview

Since late 2009, Brad Paisley has been using Wampler Pedals. He started with the Faux AnalogEcho, then got an Ego Compressor and then had the Underdog overdrive.

Everything was great until his tech at the time, Chad, mentioned that Brad still was not quite settled on the overdrive sound he was getting from his live rig. He asked if Wampler could maybe look at making a pedal?

Brads requirements were quite "simple". "It needs to be clean but get crunchy with some "beef" to it. It needs to have a fluid tone when soloing. It needs to add a little hair to the tone but then has to be able to give flat out ball busting gain. Oh but please do not wreck the tonality. It needs to have everything, in a pedal format, but do not make it sound like a pedal!"

Over a period of months, Brian at Wampler made some circuits and sent them off. There were a couple of "tweaks" here and there to be made and then finally, when official "proto #2" landed it went straight into the live rack and out on the H20world tour.

That prototype has now been made into the Brad Paisley signature "Paisley Drive" and goes with Brad wherever he goes. When you see Brad live, or performing live on the TV, and you are blown away by his overdriven tone, its the Paisley Drive.

The truly great thing about this pedal is that its not only Telecaster style guitars that it works so well with, it brings the best out of your Strat or anything you may have loaded with humbuckers. You no longer need to have individual pedals for your guitars; the Paisley Drive will make each one sing.

The built-in tonal controls, the presence and mid contour switches will make this pedal the single most versatile and complete overdrive pedal you have ever owned. In fact, it might be the last one you ever buy.
