Inspired by the ‘tweed’ tone of Fender’s 1950’s amps, the Wampler Tweed '57 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal provides that magic tone and a feature set that allows for tweaking to get that certain vibe you’ve been looking for! Its full 3-band EQ is voiced carefully to let you get a wide range of tones from your amp and allows you to go beyond a one dimensional sound.
The Tweed ’57 pedal from Wampler’s Heritage series also features an Input Simulator switch which provides the flexibility you’d expect on an amp from that period. This gives you Normal, Bright, and Linked input options that cooperate with the EQ and gain adjustments for control that is easy to use and rewarding to play with! The Tweed ’57 pedal’s dynamic response is extraordinary, and the overdriven tone is truly remarkable.

Play the Wampler Tweed ‘57 pedal and you’ll understand exactly what inspired Brian to create this pedal, with a sound so characteristic and raw. Worked to perfection for his setup and yours, we bet after you experience this pedal’s historic rhythm and timeless, leaping-off-the-frets lead, you’ll be grinning, too.
Brian Wampler is a confirmed tone fiend. He has to be, to make the kind of excellent sounding and great playing pedals Wampler Pedals is known for. He knew that his work on the Black ’65 would need to be followed up by another pedal to make the classic Fender amplifier inspired Wampler Pedals family whole.
When you go back in time, past the era that inspired the sound of the Black ‘65, you find yourself in the land of tweed, where raw, driven sounds offered guitarists new possibilities that they had never heard before, sounds that have found their way onto historic recordings. Creating a pedal that could do for the tweed amps of the mid to late 1950s what the Black ’65 does for its amps would not be an easy process, but Brian has never shied away from a challenge!
