I do not gush about much but I have had my Wampler Clarksdale pedal for about a week now and I have not ever heard tone that excited me like the tones I am getting from this pedal, my Blues JR and my strat.
The Blues JR has a great clean tone but just lacks when it comes to any type of drive. The Wampler Clarksdale pedal fixed that. I have been shooting for a crunch but not overly gainy and it's there, deep and articulate. I am still learning to tweak but for the first time, I am excited about MY tone.
Now how to figure out how to record it best.
