Wampler recognise that when a guitarist purchases an amplifier, the reverb can sometimes be not quite as you expect. As such, Brian at Wampler decided to develop the Faux Spring Reverb pedal to give you an enhanced overall reverb that can perhaps surpass your amplifier, plus it is almost unheard of that any player wouldn't occasionally want some reverb.
The Faux Spring Reverb was born out of the idea of creating a pedal that provides you with a similar sound to the Fender Reverb Combo Amp which was released in the early 1960s. The sound which this combo could give you became a classic favourite, and in the modern day it can be difficult to try and replicate it using modern equipment. This has now all changed thanks to the Faux Spring Reverb.
The pedal is handbuilt in the USA using the high grade film capacitors and resistors. In fact, it has even been used by the likes of Keith Urban in his onstage rig, and all due to its ultimately springy sound and convenient, compact build. It doesn't alter your base tone whatsoever, and although it is a digital effects pedal it has an all-analog circuit.
It features three simple controls for Level, Depth and Shade and is engaged by a completely true bypass switch. The Shade dial is particularly interesting as it allows you to make your reverb as dark or as light as you wish. It may depend on the venue you play, or just personal preference, you can explore its range freely.
This pedal is not battery operated but instead takes a 9v power jack. Once you engage the pedal you have up to 2.8s of reverb time to play with.
The Wampler Faux Spring Reverb is a superb pedal at an economical price that can truly improve the spring in your guitar's step.
