Wampler Delivers Amazingly Precise Tweed Tone in Pedal Form

Harness the sound of a tweed-style guitar amplifier with the Wampler Tweed '57 Overdrive pedal. That addicting vintage-style tone fuels your amp via a three-setting input simulator, accurately modeling three different styles of overdrive. The Wampler Tweed '57 also gives you 3-band EQ controls to tweak the color of your output. With its compact size and dynamic range of distortion, your Wampler Tweed '57 will line up well with a whole host of effects pedals, and up your game on the stage or in the studio.

Brian Wampler shows you the classic tweed-style distortion this pedal can deliver:


Nailing that Classic Tweed Sound

From a Tweed Champ, to a Bassman, to a Deluxe, your the Wampler Tweed '57 has all grounds covered. This amazingly dynamic pedal responds very well to your guitar's volume and tone settings, as well as how hard or soft you tend to play. At low gain settings, you have a very warm and clean output. When you crank the gain, you get a powerful breakup without loss of articulation. This pedal acts like three amplifiers in one -- so fire it up, crank it up, and let your axe do the talking.

Three-Setting Input Simulator

Right at the center of the pedal is an input simulator switch to mimic three different types of tweed amplifiers for your rocking pleasure. The Normal setting gives a nice low-headroom breakup that's clear and warm, whether you're going for low or high gain settings. The Bright channel brings in a little extra high-end snap and sparkle. The Linked channel fires the gain up higher for a hotter breakup that still retains a healthy dose of clarity and articulation.

Dialing in the Overdrive

Along with three different input simulations, you also have level and gain controls that go a long way sonically with just a few modest tweaks. Three-band EQ gives you plenty of control of the brightness, darkness, and midrange punch of your signal. The inner circuitry is also designed to respond really well to your guitar's volume control dial -- giving you even greater tonal control of your output without having to reach down and tweak any of your Wampler Tweed '57's dials or input selector settings. Plug into this pedal and help yourself to that classic tweedy

Wampler Tweed '57 Overdrive Pedal

Play the Wampler Pedals Tweed '57 and you'll understand exactly what inspired Brian to create this pedal, with a sound so characteristic and raw. Worked to perfection for his setup and yours, they bet after you experience this pedals historic rhythm and timeless, leaping-off-the-frets lead, you'll be grinning, too.

Brian's work on the Wampler Pedals Black '65 left him grinning. Finally, after months and months of work, hed nailed it. A pedal that can conjure a whole realm of classic tones with a few turns of the EQ knobs; a pedal that works equally well as a dedicated overdrive inspired by great, vintage Fender amps, or as a preamp or tone shaper that, when put at the end of your signal chain, just before your amp with the gain set low, can make any pedal before it sound and respond like you're running it through whichever favorite amp of the time period you dial it in for. A genuinely passion-driven homage to some of history's greatest amps! Yet that accomplishment couldn't be the end. History, after all, goes farther back than 1965, and so does the story of great tone.

Brian Wampler is a confirmed tone fiend. He has to be, to make the kind of excellent sounding and great playing pedals Wampler Pedals is known for. He knew that his work on the Black '65 would need to be followed up by another pedal to make the classic Fender amplifier inspired Wampler Pedals family whole. When you go back in time, past the era that inspired the sound of the Black '65, you find yourself in the land of tweed, where raw, driven sounds offered guitarists possibilities that they had never heard before, sounds that have found their way onto historic recordings. Creating a pedal that could do for the tweed amps of the mid to late 1950s what the Black '65 does for its amps would not be an easy process, but Brian has never shied away from a challenge!

Enter the Tweed '57, a pedal inspired by historic Fender amps and their magic tone, a pedal which offers a wide palette of sounds and includes several features that you've come to expect from Wampler Pedals as well as some surprises Brians cooked up just for this pedal! With a full three-band EQ voiced carefully to let you get a wide range of tones from your amp, the Tweed 57 is not limited to trying to achieve one particular sound. And thanks to the fantastic Input Simulator switch, you've got flexibility and control just as you'd expect on an amp from that period, with Normal, Bright, and Linked input options that cooperate with the EQ and gain adjustments to give you control that is easy to use and rewarding to play with. The pedals dynamic response is extraordinary, and the overdriven tone is amazing.
