That Oozy Delta Blues Overdrive Tone
If you're a fan of that irresistible 808-style sound, then plug this pedal in and play away. Brian Wampler worked with blues axe-slinger Travis Feaster to bring that warm and tempting sound to your rig in simple stompbox fashion. With its punchy, vintage-voiced, midrange-overdriven oomph that doesn't lose clarity when you crank the gain, this pedal will leave your ears thirsty for more. Fire your axe up and feel this baby purr.
Gain, Volume, and 3-Band EQ Controls
Set all three EQ control dials right at noon if you want to harness that traditional 808 sound. All tone controls boast an active circuitry, so you're actually boosting and cutting frequencies when you tweak each dial. This pedal cleans up nicely when you bring the gain down low, and when you crank it up, your tone won't "fizz out" due to loss of articulation or clarity.
To bring in a little more tonal flexibility, your Wampler Clarksdale Overdrive pedal boasts a lift/smooth switch. This additional feature changes the diodes in the circuit, offering some extra midrange punch with slightly less compression. You won't lose the analog sound of your input signal because this pedal is hand-built utilizing true-bypass relay switching, which keeps the original character of your guitar intact as your play.
