Brad’s passion for music began at age 8, when his grandfather gave him his first guitar. By the age of 12, the young musician was singing in church and at civic meetings and playing in his first band, for which he wrote his own material. As well as his own signature Wampler pedals, Brad has also used a Sovereign distortion, a Faux Tape Echo, and an Ego Compressor.
Paisley Drive Deluxe
Wampler’s relationship with Brad Paisley goes back to a time way before his original signature Paisley Drive pedal. In fact, thanks to the way it produced similar tones to the lauded Nobels ODR-S with more control for fine-tuning his sound, the first Wampler pedal Brad fell in love with was the since-discontinued Underdog overdrive.
It’s with this in mind that Wampler combined Brad’s two favorite Wampler tones in to the Paisley Deluxe dual overdrive pedal. By cramming a Paisley Drive and Brian’s Underdog circuit into one single pedal, Wampler is delivering the ultimate Brad Paisley pedal. Not only do you have independent access to both tones, but you are able to stack them, for more harmonically rich drives, in any order you want.
