This Is Your Guitar On Paisley

In the design of the Wampler Paisley Drive pedal, Brad Paisley - one picky tone-aholic - worked with pedal guru Brian Wampler to meet his tall set of requirements. The Paisley Drive starts off clean, but serves up beefy crunch when you lean into it. It puts a bit of hair on your tone and deploys flat-out gainiac mayhem when you need it, delivering beautifully fluid tone when you're soloing. If you want satisfying, responsive overdrive that sounds like a tube amp, while letting the true character of your guitar come through, you'll adore the Wampler Paisley Drive.

Wampler Paisley Drive Guitar Pedal Features at a Glance:
  • As used by Brad Paisley live and in the studio!
  • Handmade in the USA; true bypass circuitry
  • High-grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound and response
  • Battery connection and 9V power jack (barrel plug, adapter optional); power draw: 9mA

Paisley Overdrive

If you like the sound of your amp, this pedal is for you. It ads the Dbs without adding color to your sound so you can be heard while soloing without sound compromise. True OD!

An overdrive for those who want amp driven "push"

This little blue box was exactly what I was looking for ! Over driven tube amp sounds without releasing the " Hell Hounds ". Lost of ways to make the tone all yours . Really acts differently with each amp. If you want the " End of Days " overdrive , this one is not for you , BUT if you want real control of the wet/dry amount of OD you want , check this one out.

First off, I listen to country. I'm not a huge pan, nor do I really care about Brad Paisleys tone. But I do care about tone. I've owned over 70 overdrive pedals, and this one hands down beat every single one of them. The best overdrive for being able to clearly hear notes that you pick. While there is plenty of overdriven goodness on tap, it is all defined. You can hear everything, and that clarity, combined with the tonal options are what make this the most incredible overdrive pedal I've had the pleasure of owning.

If you're even thinking about it, just buy it now! :)

I've been wanting a Wampler Paisley Drive for a long time and I finally just got one. Wow, it's unbelievable. I've tried a lot of drive pedals, and this is by far the best. The transparency and versatility of this pedal can't be beat. If you've been reading reviews and watching demo videos and you're thinking about buying this pedal, just add it to your cart right now. You'll be soooo glad you did! This pedal is now the best on my board, by far!

Flexible OD with Plenty of Options

I have always been a huge Paisley fan so, naturally, I had to make this purchase. It's everything it is cracked up to be. My favorite control on it is the Mid Contour toggle. This gives you a lot of versatility with how prevalent you want your leads to come in - perfect for a Tele. I run it through my AC30 and it has replaced all other overdrive pedals for me. This one will be in my rig for a while.

Sweetwater Advice

Mike Winebrenner

The only bad thing about the Wampler Paisley Drive is that my guitar doesn't sound nearly as good without it! I've been amazed by the tones I am able to achieve with it! This is the kind of pedal that makes you want to keep picking up the guitar!

Charlie Davis

This is probably the only overdrive that has stayed on my pedalboard for a full year's time, and is the only thing on my board that never has to worry about being replaced. It is easily one of the most responsive and versatile overdrive pedals to ever be released. Also don't let the name fool you. The Wampler Paisley Drive can nail Brad's dirty sounds, but there is a reason it's being seen on pedalboards around the world in every genre of music.
