I am thinking that deep down I want the wampler because it costs more and I can go around talking about my expensive wamplers. Did I just give myself some self therapy? How does this make me feel? Yes, and how do you feel about that? Does that make me sad? What were your feelings like?
Ok I will stop: DISCUSS! (The question, not my mental status)
Pete Townshend - Dynacomp
Redd Volkaert - CS-2
Vince Gill - CS-3
Trey Anastasio - Ross
Bedroom Rockers - Wampler
Ha - I am not slamming Wampler. Brian makes awesome pedals! I'm just saying that all of those signature tones over the years were made with mass produced, dime-a-dozen
effects pedals that did their job live and in the studio. Is the Wampler better? Probably. Is it a 130 bucks better? I doubt it. Am I going to drop that kind of money when I can grab a CS-3 for next to nothing on eBay? Not a chance.
I'm sticking with Vince Gill on this one. He knows a thing or two about good tone as well. His opinion isn't on the forum, but it is all over his recordings.
