« Wampler's Best »

Publié le 03/29/11 à 09:48
For an analog pedal this thing is fantastic. Let me first start by saying I don't like distortion pedals but I am a fan of Wampler's stuff and I like fuzz boxes. This unit has a unique take on the Mesa Boogie Rectifier amp and combine that with a fuzz box similar to a Pete Cornish distortion box. The box will sound like a pedal but it gets very close to a cranked tube amp.

• High grade film capacitors and
resistors picked for their superior
sound and response

• Completely true bypass

• 3.75" x 5.75" (2.75" tall)

• Battery connection and 9v power jack (barrel plug like Boss)
• Volume, Crunch, treble, Mids, Bass, Gain, Vintage/ Modern Switch,
• On/Off and Boost footswitch


UTILIZATION

This unit is very easy to use and get a good setup right out of the box. There a few more knobs than other Wampler pedals put this is kind of two pedals in one. One side is a Recto sound and the other which is engaged when you click the boost sounds more like a fuzz unit. Actually when you turn the gain down it gets more of a british flavored amp. Clicking the VIntage/ Modern switch really changes the voicing of the amp. When you crank the mids you'll get a good british flavor with the switch pointed to Vintage.

It can be a little noisy since there is so much gain on the tap. This isn't a tame pedal by any means.

SOUND QUALITY

Again you can feel the pedal when engaging it where you would feel the air being pushed from an overdriven amp. So there is going to be a noticeable feel in the guitar and amp when playing this versus gain in pre and power tubes.

The thing sounds cool and has a recto sound to it, but it still sounds like a pedal. The boost side is cool with single coil guitars such a Strat. You can get those David Gilmore type tones that will sustain for days. Try this with a clean amp. This will not work with a high gain amp. It will be way too much gain and be more noisy than you can handle.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a cool pedal if you own a clean amp such as a Fender or Vox and you would like to get a Mesa Boogie sound without buying a Triple Recto. This pedal will get you a similar sound. It will be pretty cool for the person who wants to use this pedal because they don't want to wait for a Pete Cornish pedal. This pedal comes in at around $270, which is a little higher than Wampler's other pedals but it is two pedals in one unit.

I would recommend this pedal to any clean amp owner. If you have a high gain amp then you would need a clean boost of a Tube Screamer. This pedal will be too much for any high gain amp. If you want a real sounding Recto sound then you'll have to go out and buy a real Mesa.
