Wampler Paisley Drive Deluxe


Wampler's relationship with Brad Paisley goes back to a time way before his 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 the Paisley Deluxe dual overdrive pedal. By cramming a Paisley Drive and Brian's Underdog circuits into a 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 drive in any order you want.  And taking a cue from Wampler's popular Tom Quayle signature Dual Fusion's groundbreaking signal routing, you're able to run each side of the Paisley Deluxe as an individual pedal, perfect for today's pedal switcher-based rigs. Whether you're looking to nail Brad's gorgeous signature tones or are looking for a great-sounding overdrive with unbelievable flexibility, you can't go wrong with the Wampler Paisley Deluxe.

This is not just a pedal for country music, with more gain available that you can possibly imagine, the Paisley Deluxe will slot into any rig and give you all the overdrive options you could ever want! 


Bypass Switches – Simple enough, these footswitches are wired to relay based true bypass switches to ensure that you don't have anything in the way when you disable the pedal. Stomp on them to turn either channel on, and the LED indicator light will show that it's active. c1 is red, c2 is blue.

Level – These control the output of each channel. They work just like the volume knob on your guitar or your amp. As you raise the Gain knob, and depending on how you adjust the EQ controls and switches, you may need to raise or lower this to have the same output level. That's perfectly normal. Whether you prefer a boost when you kick your overdrive on or just about the same level as your clean tone, there should be enough range of adjustment to suit all tastes. It isn't a super loud pedal, so if you're using a very high output guitar, you might need to raise the volume fairly high – again, that's normal, so long as the pedal can hit unity gain (same level when you kick it on as when it's bypassed) it's behaving as expected.

Gain – This controls how much dirt you get from each channel. Each channel has its own personality so the best thing you can do is dig in a see what is best for you, you’ll VOICING switches, and also how the EQ is set...

Tone/EQ - how you want that channel to sound - start at noon for each and then as you increase the gain tailor the EQ as you want to hear it, the amount of versatility this feature gives you makes that side of the pedal alone quite remarkable. c2 features a tone control perfectly placed to give you a large scope for various tones, don’t forget, the switches on the side will change the character of the gain so you’ll need to tweak the EQ if you change that!

Fat Switch - This applies extra gain and depth to c1 only, there is a slight EQ shape change as well - c1 is quite ‘gainy’ as it is, but this switch can and will send you into rock territory!

Voicing Switch - This changes the EQ shape of c2. When ‘out’, it’s got quite a prominet mid hump and when ‘in’ it’s more scooped. Two classic Brad tones, right there.

Choosing “stacked” vs. “separate” channel switching - The toggle switch has 3 settings: 2>1, Separate, and 1>2.Looking at the top of the pedal, the input jacks are on the right side (with an arrow pointing towards the knobs) and the output jacks are on the left side (with an arrow pointing away from the knobs). C1 means “channel 1” and C2 means “channel 2” on the jacks.When in 2>1 mode and both channels are “on”, the guitar is routed into channel 2, then channel 1. The input cable from the guitar needs to be moved to the “C2” input jack, and the output cable to the amp needs to be moved to “C1” output jack. When in and both channels are “on”, the guitar is routed into channel 1, then channel 2. The input cable from the guitar needs to be moved to the “C1” input jack and the output cable to the amp needs to be moved to the “C2” output jack. When the toggle is in the middle it is in “separate” mode, and the pedal can be used as two individual pedals, both with its respective input and output jack.will not work properly, but no damage is done.
