Wampler Black ’65

There was something magical about certain amps from the 1960s, amps that have become to be known as the "blackface" or "black panel" style of amplifiers from a certain legendary American guitar and amplifier company.

With such a rich legacy of tone to follow, Grand Pappy BDub’s take on the American-voiced amps of that period was turned into the legendary Black ‘65 Pedal. Through a clean amp, this pedal offers a faithful reproduction of the tones Brian loved from this classic period, and it is also flexible enough to add a new level of nuanced grit to your existing rig. This is a limited edition pedal and only available to purchase online here from Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Limited Edition, Classic Tones

Although the Black ’65 delivers the sound of those vintage tones you have come to love and expect, it is not limited to only one particular sound. With a 3 band eq similar to a vintage ”black panel” amp, you’re able to sculpt the tonality, feel, compression and overall gain structure just like you would on the real tube amplifier it’s emulating.

Get Boosted

The Boost switch controls the amount of internal gain available to the pedal – handy when dealing with different guitar output levels or just as some extra grunt to push this into primitive breakup – very similar to high levels of rectification that became the trademark tonal quality of a famous Californian boutique amp manufacturer.

Vintage Playability

This pedal sounds great with every type of pickup we’ve thrown at it. Whether you are slinging a single coil, looking for that classic Nashville twang, or driving a Humbucker into a 4×12, this pedal will take your tone back to an era that defined the history of music and beyond.

Amp in a Pedal

This is one of Wampler’s legendary circuits reborn in a limited edition pedal that works great with any amplifier or even direct into your favorite cabinet sim or IR loader.
