From humble beginnings of modding pedals to today with full fledge production of his original designed boutique pedals – Brian Wampler, CEO of Wampler Pedals, Inc. is helping create some of the world’s best guitar tones – one tone filled pedal at a time.Brian first and foremost is a guitar player and has always been a “gear nut” – constantly trying different guitars, amps, pedals, and every combination thereof – always with the same goal of trying to achieve the best tone possible! The quest for great tones has been a life long endeavor that started from the time Brian was a kid watching his older brother’s band practice “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” over and over. Almost a decade later, Brian is still creating some of the world’s best guitar tones from his own boutique guitar pedal company. So why build guitar pedals for a living? In the beginning – every pedal on the market that Brian played just wasn’t producing the tones he was longing for. So instead of being unhappy with stock tones, he started tweaking and modding pedals here and there to get close to the tones he kept hearing in his head.
Ultimately, the tweaked pedals weren’t making the cut either and Brian started making brand new designs that didn’t sound like anything on the market – as a result Wampler Pedals was born and the rest as they say is history.With a great selection of current products and more new arrivals coming all the time, Brian Wampler continues to introduce world-class guitar tone to great guitar players. The process from guitar pedal creation to its release is sometimes a lengthy one however.
The pedal ultimately goes through a series of tests before others can enjoy it to. Brian tests his pedal prototypes through a plethora of guitars and amps before releasing it into the wild to insure each new pedal sounds good with a wide variety of guitar rig setups. The pedals then get played in a live situation, and once completely satisfied – they are manufactured right here in the United States.
Brian has put together an incredible team to ensure that every pedal that we make is as high quality as if he made it himself. Each pedal is built with the highest standards and best component parts possible to insure a lifetime of hard use on the road and in the studio. Brian also prides himself on customer service and has assembled an administrative staff in his hometown of Martinsville, IN to provide some of the best customer support in the industry.
Many companies start with similar well-intentioned motives, making a great product at a great price. As companies start to grow, unfortunately sometimes quality has a tendency to suffer as well. While Wampler Pedals has continued to grow through the years – Brian’s original vision of making solid, tone packed boutique pedals that inspire musicians has never wavered. Today, Brian is just as committed to making great sounding pedals as he was at beginning – and he does it, right here in America’s heartland.From garages to world tours, from steady Monday through Saturday gigs to your favorite place of worship on Sunday morning- you are the reason we can do what we love to do – and for that we are truly thankful.
