Wampler The Paisley Drive Overdrive Pedal
Brad used the Ego, Underdog and Faux Analog Echo for a few years. Brad's new tech, Chad, mentioned to Brian that Brad wasn't 100% happy with his tone and maybe they could all work together to make the perfect overdrive for Brad to tour and record with.
Paisley's requirements were quite "simple" it needs to be clean but get crunchy with some "beef" to it. It needs to have a fluid tone when soloing. It needs to add a little hair to the tone but then but then has to be able to give flat out ball busting gain, oh… but please do not wreck the tonality. It needs to have everything, in a pedal format, but do not make it sound like a pedal!
During the following months, Brian created a range of circuits and sent them off, after the "tweaks" that you would expect to make when working a player chasing a certain tone. finally, the official "prototype #2.0" landed, and found its way straight into Brads live rack and out on the road on the 2010 "Brad Paisley: H20" world tour.
The exceptional thing about this pedal is its ability to work with all guitars, not just the telecaster style. Your strat will be more than happy and it loves humbucker equipped guitars. In fact, instead of different drive pedals for different guitars this one could be you're go to drive pedal for all your axes.
The tone controls that are built in, the mid contour and presence switches (these give three completely different EQ styles - warm mids, neutral, and a more mid scooped tone, will make this pedal one of the most complete and versatile pedals that you will ever own.
Brad Paisley: "…we actually recorded this (pedal) in the studio, you know, trying it out. I turned up a Trainwreck Amp that I've got and compared the sound of the distortion and it was very, very similar. And that's a very good test because any time a pedal can mimic a great overdriven amp then you're on to something…"
