Wampler's Smooth and Bluesy Overdrive Pedal

The Wampler Clarksdale Delta Overdrive pedal is perfect companion for the blues guitar player looking for a dynamic pedal to bring some groovy boutique-style tone to the stage. This compact companion is equipped with three-band EQ, volume, and gain control dials to hone in on the sound you're seeking, plus a lift/smooth switch to bring a little midrange punch for your ears to enjoy. Fire this pedal up and feel the emotive, bluesy tone ooze from your fingers to your amplifier in iconic Clarksdale Delta blues style!

Brian Wampler and Travis Feaster on the Wampler Clarksdale overdrive pedal:


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.

Lift/Smooth Switch

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.

Wampler Clarksdale Delta Overdrive Pedal

At the crossroads of Highway 61 and Junction 49 lies the official crossroads of Clarksdale, Mississippi -- the birthplace of the Delta Blues. This historic town, and the famous music that was created there, is responsible for the inspiration behind this pedal -- The Clarksdale Overdrive.

Blues and non-blues guitar players have used Tube Screamer type circuits for years to help them create their own signature sound. Over the years, countless players have been asking Brian to create that world famous vintage mid-range overdrive -- well he finally did it!

The Clarksdale is Wampler's take on that world famous lime green overdrive many of us have come to love -- with a few great Wampler styled improvements of course. The world of boutique pedals is filled with lots of great clones of that already famous circuit -- so what else could be done?

Wampler wanted to create a pedal that would be true to the sound and feel of the original but would have a wider range of tonal options -- to satisfy even the biggest tone chasers out there. The addition of a 3 band EQ (Bass, Mids, and Treble) allows a player to have a more tailored tonal pallet than the original. The Lift/ Smooth switch will also allow a player to either sit in the mix with the Smooth setting or allow your leads to standout with the Lift option. Also unlike the original "green giant" the Clarksdale will not "fizz out" as much at low or high gain settings.

The Clarksdale has one foot in the past and one foot firmly planted in the future. Your Search for the perfect vintage midrange infused overdrive is finally over.

Features:

- Hand made in the U.S.A.
- True bypass relay switching
- Battery connection and 9v power jack (barrel plug like Boss)
- 5 Year Warranty
- Powder coated durable finish
- Smooth/Lift changes the tonality and gain structure, giving you an extra "lift" to your tone
