Outstanding OD Pedal

As if I needed another overdrive pedal. I have a ton of them. But the Wessex immediately hooked me after a brief demo at The LA Amp Show. A very natural overdrive bite and clarity. The treble and bass controls are very sensitive and really help shape the tone for my humbuckers or single-coil guitars. The switch is cool for shaping the tone, too. I prefer the "E" position most of the time. It's kind of like a contour or saturation switch, and the "E" position just sounds more clear and open to my ears. I'm using a VOX AC30CCH thru a 2x12 cab loaded with Eminence Texas Heats. Like most of my OD pedals, the Wessex is perfect with the amp set just before breakup. But the Wessex also kills when I have the VOX set on a very clean setting. Most pedals just sound thin and fizzy on the clean channel, but not the Bogner. The Wessex is knocking all my other OD's off the board! Also thanks to Sweetwater for the great service. Rock on!

Didn't work for me

I bought this together with wessex overdrive pedal with a great excitement because I have many Rupert Neve products in my studio and they all sound stellar. However this ended up with a disappointment as soon I plugged the guitar to it. Either the transformers don't work at this stage of the chain or either the rest of the circuitry is designed incompatible with them. I have several bogner gear as twinjet amp, ecstasy red pedal and uberschall pedal and I love them so don't think that I have a personal problem with the brand. To make it short, harlow is too noisy at a point of being unusable when the volume is more than 9 o'clock position. It even bothers you at 9. I think this is the reason why you don't see that knob over 9 o'clock in any youtube demo. The bloom (compressor) is not capable of grabbing the sound no matter how you hit it, it is too far from a dyna comp pedal. The wessex is not noisy as harlow however it didn't deliver any transformer magic that people rave about, the only thing I heard after playing for 20 years of rock music is an artificial and transistor type of cheap sound. My ts808 just smoked it in an ab test. I finally returned both. Don't buy those without hearing yourself and comparing with other pedals if you don't want to end up with returning procedures.
