Wampler Brad Paisley Overdrive – Quick Review
Born out of a Brad’s want of a better and improved Ibanez Tubescreamer
808 tone live, the Paisley overdrive is a boutique handmade
pedal. Wampler themselves recommend
this pedal not only for Telecasters, but also for other single
coil guitars and even other guitars fitted with humbuckers.
I tried it with a Telecaster into a Fender Blues Junior valve
amp. The pedal gives us warm, gnarly tones whilst still being
transparent. It can definitely sound like an 808 but push
up the gain and it covers a wide tonal palette from throaty
crunch to fluid solo tones.
Operation is quiet both with the effect on and off (true bypass).
Build quality is superb as is the eye catching artwork.
