Wampler Velvet Fuzz Pedal
Sometimes it's not about chasing a tone from one specific piece of equipment it's about capturing the tones from the entire signal chain.
Looking back through history there have been some truly outstanding fuzz tones. In particular the tones achieved by running a fuzz into a screaming stack. The kind of tones that are just earth shattering in their depth aggression and smoothness.
Brian Wampler who's always looking for the best tones to capture decided the chase was on. Taking the base tones from a very famous pedal and the characteristics of a famous stacked EL34 driven amp - decided it was about time those tones were brought together in pedal format.
The key to the tone of the Velvet is the voicing switch. In the “big” position the pedal reacts like a classic fuzz. Loads of internal compression and truly massive tones it really is that “tone” from that “era”. Dropping the volume back cleans it up perfectly so your rhythm can remain clear enough and then your solo's will flatten all those who dare to stand before you.
In the “tight” position the tone comes in and you get the feeling you have swapped amps as well those mammoth tones but without the compression and other traits that many fuzz players love.
