Overdrive? Distortion? Hey, Why Not Both?

The Wampler Hot Wired V2 does it all. From Nashville-style chickin' pickin' to heaping loads of fat, creamy distortion, this pedal serves up the perfect guitar tone for any occasion. This is the pedal Nashville studio session guitarist Brent Mason uses day-in and day-out. Two pedals in one - overdrive and distortion, the Hot Wired V2 is undoubtedly one of the most versatile pedals you'll ever plug into. Use either channel - or stack them for astonishingly ginormous sound. Versatile is far too weak a word to describe the Wampler Hot Wired V2. Plug in and be amazed.

Me likes it

Super pedal, versatile and very musical. The tone on either side is very solid with plenty of girth. You can get some nice palm muting crunch on the distortion side yet the tone is solid and articulate. Some say the overdrive side sounds like a ts808 but I think it reminds me more of my KOT with a tad more mids. Just bought 3 great overdrive pedals, Lovepedal Amp 11, JHS Kilt and the Hot-Wired and have been playing through all of them for the past week. They're all keeper pedals but I seem to be playing the orange pedal the most the last couple of day's. It's sounds great in live performances and it's obvious a lot of thought went into designing this pedal.

Everything you suspect about this pedal...

is true! It has the best sound and the most flexibility of any pedal I've ever used. I just got it today. It makes every one of my guitars sound great. It even makes my itty-bitty 4 w Vox amp sound great! (Of course is sounds better in the Deluxe Reverb! But I'm telling you, it's in a class by itself.) I didn't think such a good pedal existed, or could exist. I've changed my mind.

LOVE this pedal

This pedal is absolutely great! I can get almost any sound I need out of this and it is so easy to use. I run my EGO compressor into this and the sounds are wonderful. Great job Wampler

Literally floored!

Been playing a long time and have gone through tons of pedals. I have even posted reviews here of pedals I thought were awesome but after awhile they just fell short. This pedal though, wow, just wow. I get such a killer tone out of the blend through my Strat or LP and right out of the gate. I did not want to stop playing from the moment I plugged this into my chain. Bye Bye Plimsoul and others, this pedal is the best drive pedal I think I have ever plugged into. Do yourself a favor and check it out you have nothing to lose but a few bucks on a return item. I guarantee this pedal will do you justice from chicken pickin', country to full creamy blues sustain and rock. The thing I love is the transparency at all levels. I love Wampler Pedals man they are just amazing!
