Product Description

Brian’s work on the Wampler Pedals Black ‘65 left him grinning. Finally, after months and months of work, he’d 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 new 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 Brian’s 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 pedal’s dynamic response is extraordinary, and the overdriven tone is amazing.

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, we bet after you experience this pedal’s historic rhythm and timeless, leaping-off-the-frets lead, you’ll be grinning, too.

Wampler Pedals: TWEED '57 (09:08)
http://wamplerpedals.com/heritage/tweed-57.htmlYet another great pedal from the house of Wampler. This one belongs to the "Heritage Series" and aims to can a whole heap of great tweed amps from the late 50's. It covers low to medium gain and reacts very dynamically with my guitar's volume knobs. But most of all it has that sound that is associated with an amp from this period - cranked and otherwise. Great stuff, Brian!A note: In this video I call the pedal's "Input Simulator" toggle a "channel switch". This is perhaps misleading as the Input Simulator is exactly that: a toggle-able virtual input set (Bright, Normal and Both or 'Linked'). On a tweed style amp and many others for that matter, you will often see a set of four inputs - 2 x Bright and 2 x Normal. Many people like to 'link' or 'bridge' one input to the other for a sound based on the combination of those inputs. For instance, on my HIWATT I plug my guitar into the Normal input's high level input. I then use a small patch cable to link the Normal Input (low level input) to the amp's Bright input. This gives me the sparkle of the Bright input with the warmer sound of the Normal Input and also allows me to mix the two inputs to my taste by means of their respective and dedicated Volume controls. The same situation could apply to a Bassman combo (for instance) or any other amp with two or more different Inputs. The Tweed '57 emulates this facility beautifully with its Input Simulator toggle. It's a very cool addition to this pedal and one which I'd love to see more of on other pedals.
