Wampler Pedals Releases Black '65 Overdrive Pedal

The Black ''65 is an amp-in-a-box designed to emulate a mid-sixties "blackface" amp

Martinsville, IN (August 30, 2010) -- Wampler Pedals’ latest creation is an amp-in-a-box pedal designed to harness the cranked tones of a mid-'60s “blackface”-style amplifier. The Black ‘65 Overdrive was born after nine months of design, tweaking and testing – and some trials and influence by A-list session guitarist Brent Mason.

The pedal features Volume and Gain knobs, as well as a three-band EQ allowing the player to adjust lows, mids and highs to taste. A mini-toggle switch can be engaged to boost the gain taking the pedal beyond the traditional cranked Fender sound.

*High grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound and response

Some digital artifacts at long decay times.


Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
