    I like it, do I love it, time will tell. I like that it has a bass control in addition to a color control, can really dial in the tone you want. I wish it had a little more gain, as you can tell I have it maxed out, but it is advertised as a low gain circuit, which it does well. I seem to like the clipping button on the side pressed in. Overall it sounds really good. The testing continues..... 20210510_170405.jpg

    Wampler gets it in my opinion. His placement of EQ points and common use of Baxandall makes his pedals useful to a wider range of players His build is bomb proof. If you want a recommendation for a Wampler drive that has higher gain look at Pantheon. But the Belle is a nice pedal and I think it does exactly what it says. Congrats.

    Nice! I've grown to love this pedal. I like the nobels pedal, but it could be a bit too woofy. The bass control on the Belle fixed that. Yeah, it's definitely on the low gain side, but it sounds fantastic if you goose it with a another pedal. I'll use either an OCD, TS or some kind of bluesbreaker pedal for this. Maintains clarity really nicely.
