Harness Vintage Vox-Like Chime in Pedal Form
The Wampler Thirty Something overdrive pedal harnesses that vintage, bell-like, chimey '60s amplifier tone in a compact, easy-to-use overdrive pedal. A 15/30 headroom switch dials back the chime and lets your signal break up a little more easily. Grab the bass and treble controls to shape your tone, or use the a top cut control dial to roll off the high-end sparkle for a darker tone with plenty of warmth. On top of all of that is a class A style treble booster switch with its own boost level control dial. Get that sound made popular by the Vox AC30, AC15, and more -- in a simple stompbox!
Brian Wampler showcases different vintage-styled tones with the Thirty Something:
Troves of British Tones in One Stomp
Your Wampler Thirty Something packs quite a punch of vintage British amp tone for your ears and axe to enjoy. With the gain brought all the way down, you can still get a slight crunch fueled with the warmth of a vintage EL84 tube amplifier. Push the gain up and let your guitar punch through your amplifier and into the room with warm, tube-like clarity.
Powerful EQ Control
The bass and treble control dials on this powerful overdrive pedal let you shape your signal for whatever the occasion demands. In addition to bass and treble knobs, you have a top cut control to either bring in that awesome British chime, or cut back on the highs to dull the clarity and get things a little mellower.
Boost When You Need It
On the bottom right of your Wampler Thirty Something is a conveniently placed boost switch. This feature acts as a Class A treble style booster to get a sort of Brian May tone. If you need a little more girth to cut through the mix, utilize the boost level dial to control how much extra push you need to bring in. If you're a lead player, this feature is your best friend.
Right in the middle of the Wampler Thirty Something is a headroom toggle switch with two settings. The 30 setting gets you more headroom, so you can hit your axe hard and the breakup will be less intense. You signal will distort a bit more easily on the 15 setting. Having less headroom brings down the chime a bit, but the breakup is nice and warm.
