From humble beginnings of modding pedals to large scale production of his original boutique pedals – Brian Wampler, CEO of Wampler Pedals, Inc. is helping create some of the world’s best guitar tones – one tone filled pedal at a time. Brian first and foremost is a guitar player and has always been a “gear nut” – constantly trying different guitars, amps, pedals, and every combination thereof – always with the same goal of trying to achieve the best tone possible! The quest for great tones has been a life long endeavor that started from the time Brian was a kid watching his older brother’s band practice “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” over and over. Almost a decade later, Brian is still creating some of the world’s best guitar tones from his own boutique guitar pedal company. So why build guitar pedals for a living? In the beginning – every pedal on the market that Brian played just wasn’t producing the tones he was longing for. So instead of being unhappy with stock tones, he started tweaking and modding pedals here and there to get close to the tones he kept hearing in his head.
Ultimately, the tweaked pedals weren’t making the cut either and Brian started making brand new designs that didn’t sound like anything on the market – as a result Wampler Pedals was born and the rest as they say is history. With a great selection of current products and more new arrivals coming all the time, Brian Wampler continues to introduce world-class guitar tone to great guitar players. The process from guitar pedal creation to its release is sometimes a lengthy one however.
Brian has put together an incredible team to ensure that every pedal that we make is as high quality as if he made it himself. Each pedal is built with the highest standards and best component parts possible to insure a lifetime of hard use on the road and in the studio. Many companies start with similar well-intentioned motives, making a great product at a great price. As companies start to grow, unfortunately sometimes quality has a tendency to suffer as well. While Wampler Pedals has continued to grow through the years – Brian’s original vision of making solid, tone packed boutique pedals that inspire musicians has never wavered. Today, Brian is just as committed to designing great sounding pedals as he was at beginning – and he does it, right here in America’s heartland. From garages to world tours, from steady Monday through Saturday gigs to your favorite place of worship on Sunday morning – you are the reason we can do what we love to do – and for that we are truly thankful.
