HSS Episode 037-Brian Wampler Interview


On today's show we have Brain Wampler the President of Wampler Pedals. We discuss some of the mindsets that go into his pedals and also where the ideas come from. If you have not checked out his YouTube channel, you owe it to yourself to watch some of his gear reviews as well as his great guitar playing. This was the most laid back of all the interviews thus far and one that I honestly have to say was the most fun. Below are all the links you need to find Brian and to join in Chasing Tone with him, as well as some of his other products discussed in the podcast.

The "One" Plug In

Rarely ever do we find that "one" plug-in that we reach for on EVERY mix! Well, I have to say this is mine. The Drawmer S73 IMC is a go to, a staple, a foundational element, a…. Well you get the idea. In short, I LOVE IT!

Modeled after the real thing, it , makes me want to sell one of my kidneys and snag one up just so I can set around and drool on it. But seriously, I have been using it religiously and with good reason. Every mix when the balance is good, and you've EQ'd it to your taste, still has that missing 1%. For me, this plug takes it to the next level I was looking for.

Gear Review-Warman Pickups (Tennessee Revival)

Recently I was not happy at all with the tone that was coming out of my Cort (Les Paul style) guitar. I knew that it needed rewired and I thought I would go ahead and replace the pickups while I was at it.
It didn't take long to figure out that that was going to cost me an arm and a leg! Then I stumbled upon Warman Guitars and was blown away. I thought the prices on eBay were wrong or something! So I emailed their customer service and found that indeed they were that affordable. Needless the say I was not let down, just give these tracks a listen and make your own decision.
