Product Description

Over the years, Wampler Pedal received tons and tons of folks asking them when they were they going to produce an overdrive pedal that emulates the sound of a cranked Fender amp.

When Brian Wampler decided that he was going to see if he could do it, he wanted to ensure that it was perfect. Looking back at it now, Wampler thinks he must have spent a good 9 months bread-boarding 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. To be certain, Brian also took several pedals by other companies that are supposed to do the same thing. Brent knows Fender amps better than anyone, and Brian knew if Brent thought it was good, they were onto a winner. Long story short, Brent loved it!

Wampler Pedals has heard guys say they hear The Twin, some say Vibrolux, some say Deluxe Reverb when they play this pedal. Whatever they hear, it still has that "Blackface" type of sound that they were looking for. When you turn it up, it's going to break up more like the amp would if you turn it up.

With the additional of the boost switch, you can increase the gain to make it sound like the amp is being driven harder.

See just how much vintage sounding grit the Black 65' can give your tone:


Features

- High grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound and response
- Completely true bypass
- Battery connection and 9v power jack (barrel plug like Boss)
- Controls: Volume, Gain, Bass, Mids, Treble, Gain boost switch
- 2.5 x 4.5 in.
- Ultra-bright LED for ease of use
- 5 Year Warranty
- Powder coated durable finish
- Completely original circuitry
- Stacks VERY well with other pedals

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "For my needs it works close to perfect!"
Sound: The black 65 does just what it says it does. When put through a non fender amp, it changes that amps sound to a sparkley overdriven old fender amp sound! When put through a fender amp the sound does not change as much, but it will get your fender amp sounding more overdriven at a lower volume setting. Feature: The seperate treble, mid, bass controls are why I bought this pedal. They work great, especially if you have a amp with only 1volume and 1 tone control. Ease of Use: Very easy to get a good sound within minutes. Quality: Wampler pedals are very solid. Value: A little pricey, but worth it. Manufacturer Support: I have not had any issues that needed support with. Overall: I would buy another black 65 right away if mine was stolen!
Style of Music: Rock, Country, Blues, Funk.......etc

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Perfection"
Overall: Received this in the mail today. Within five minutes, I could tell it's a permanent keeper on the pedalboard. VERY, VERY good tones. Blackface at the edge of breakup, and beyond. But also very convincing clean shimmer. I play a Blues Jr, which in spite of being a black Fender, sounds nothing like a BF. The amp now sounds like a DR, Twin, SR, your pick. Gently breaking up at 4am, while the rest of the family is asleep down the hall. Try that with your BF. I'll probably leave this pedal on nearly all the time. In fact, I find myself changing my amp settings to cleanest-neutral, so as not to AFFECT the TONE of the PEDAL. Backwards-crazy.
