Ever since, Brian’s considerable ingenuity, creative prowess, and commitment to sterling build quality have made Wampler Pedals one of the biggest names in boutique stompboxes. With his exhaustive research and development process, it’s impossible to make a bad-sounding pedal. First, he comes up with the basic design for the circuit–a process that can take as little as a month or a long as several years. Then, Brian and his team test the circuit using a vast array of different guitars and amplifiers to make sure that it sounds good with any configuration. Then, they take the prototype to a gig to make sure it passes muster in a live situation–because we’ve all known the pain of finding a pedal that sounds great in the bedroom but gets lost in the mix live. Then, and only then, the pedal goes into production.
Once that happens, the process doesn’t differ much from the early days of Wampler: they build each pedal with love and care in order to uphold their sky-high standards for build quality. As a result, Wampler pedals are full of endlessly-inspiring tones, and they are dependable enough to handle even the most rigorous of gig schedules.
