Tom Quayle: Dual Fusion
The Dual Fusion pedal from Wampler Pedals is, we think, the first overdrive pedal specifically voiced to the new breed of fusion guitarists – but it’s so versatile it can find a place on ANY board of ANY genre.
Tom Quayle - Dual Fusion
Fusion in its current form is a fairly new concept, with roots not only in theoretical jazz but rock; not classic blues based rock, but the more technically advanced “shredders” that first became popular in the mid to late 80’s. One of the forerunners of this genre is Tom Quayle. Tom is the UK’s finest and most in demand exponent of modern fusion. With a rich theoretical knowledge, a student base that contains not only “regular” players but also some absolute stellar names in the industry, and a pair of ears that are completely unforgiving he has never been able to locate a pedal he can use that allows him to be the guitarist he truly is.
When we first met Tom in early 2012, he was already using our Euphoria and Paisley Drive stacked together to give him the tones he required. But, something wasn’t quite right; those pedals are kinda voiced for other genres of music altogether so we set about honing the tones to match his style of playing. He needed more transparency, a slightly tighter and more controllable response to the low end and when stacked up they needed to sound and feel like an amp running at high levels and give each string complete clarity and response.
Over a year later, we had the Dual Fusion. With two independent circuits that are based, but are completely modified, on the Euphoria and Paisley Drive, Tom finally has a tone that can be used when he is in full flow as the inspirational and innovative musician he is.
The Wampler Pedals Dual Fusion, the first pedal to be specifically voiced for the fastest growing breed of musicians around. With the most versatile stacking/signal path options available on an analog pedal, it is the foundation of modern Fusion… Add in the versatility you expect from Wampler Pedals, the Dual Fusion will appeal to guitarists from all genres at all levels.
Two In One
One side is based on the now legendary Wampler Euphoria and the other based on the Brad Paisley signature Paisley Drive, you have the very best of Wampler tone chasing in one completely controllable stomp!
2 completely distinct and separate overdrive circuits provide countless tonal opportunities. You can run them independently or stack them in ANY direction. With the Dual Fusion, from a slight soft OD to a full screaming monster of gain, it’s all here right at your feet.
Not only is Tom a master of technique, phrasing and theory, he is also a total tone chaser and is fanatical about tone… When we first met, he had a tone in his head and he couldn’t find it, so we found it for him. Only the Dual Fusion gives him (and now you) that response, that control and that tone.

Michael Hecker –
I bought my first Dual Fusion in 2013. I instantly fell in love. It’s important to note that I play in rock, blues, country and cover bands. The DF delivers in every genre. To my ears, this is the best dual dirt pedal there is. I’ve sold it twice to explore the green grass on the other side. I always re-buy. Turns out, the grass was always greener on my side.
Christian Avila –
Two great pedals in one box! I am not a fusion player but I have no trouble getting great usable sounds out of the dual fusion. Simple controls for on the fly tweaking and as always a solid reliable pedal with great customer service.
