A pedal that is always on in my rig.   (By Robert herrera)

The Joe Walsh Double Classic is the best pair of tone sculpting effects in one unit. The compressor is warm and never too squashy even at high ratios. This compressor really opens up my amp! The Classic amp side is a really nice amp like overdrive. When these effects are paired they really do a good job with warming and boosting up your tone without coloring it. Set your gain low and boost the output and you've got a clean boost with some EQ or crank the gain for the effect of adding a gain channel to your amp! Set the compressor before or after the Classic amp for flexibility and versatility. If you love the sound of your rig but you just need more of it grab one of these and leave it on all the time! After using the Joe Walsh Double Classic For over a year now I've come to think all rigs sound brittle and thin without this bad boy on! Not to mention who doesn't love Joe Walsh!?

A must-have device!   (By MacFangus)

Compressor:
Best pedal based compressor I've ever used. I'm no tech, but my guess... is a lot of R&D went into the design. I tried a Maxon CS9 Pro Plus before getting the JWDC... I ended up sending the CS9PP back to MF.

Classic Amp:
Remember the Star Trek TOS episode, where "Harry Mudd" gave pills to his women, to give them more of what they already had? Classic Amp - to a T! I'm the hardest player in the world to impress with a drive device. The JWDC is what I wanted my old KLON Centaur (#273) to be, but wasn't.

Bottom line... Get one, before the price goes up. Mine has found a permanent place on 6 pc. pedalboard. (Posted on 9/12/16)

Just received my double classic 30 minutes before band practice so I was able to put it to the fire right away. There are not many clips out there but I was really wanting a nice warm overdrive and with some greatful guidance from Gavin at PGS (thanks Gavin) I pulled the trigger.

After reading one of the reviews I was a little worried that I wouldn't get much crunch from this pedal, but I found it to have plenty plus some for my classic rock needs. Also, as stated earlier, the OD is really thick on the bottom end and I had to dial back the bass, but sounded great after tweaking it a little.

The bonus was the compressor, wow what a great quality compressor. I have played with compressors before and always thought they robbed my tone and I lost feel with them, but not this one. You can really dial in the levels to fit your needs. I found myself leaving the compressor on all night.

If you are looking for a great additional tool to your arsenal of pedals, pick this one up. You won't be sorry, besides, the cool looking sparkling yellow is awesome. (Posted on 1/3/16)

Analog Alien Joe Walsh Double Classic

After 50 years in Joe Walsh's career, he finally has a signature pedal. The Analog Alien Double Classic is named such because it combines two effects Joe actually uses when he's playing in his studio—a high-quality compressor and a vintage amplifier.

The Double Classic brings to us Analog Alien's first foray into compression on the left side of the Double Classic. Fortunately for all involved, the Double Classic's compressor circuit is a slick one, offering ratios from 2:1 up to a healthy 10:1. The circuit contains a built in "soft-knee" circuit which means that the ratio increases as the compression threshold is breached. It's very much like a high-end studio compressor and it can get as thick as they come.

The Vintage Amp side doesn't say it's based on any one of Joe Walsh's amps, but it sure sounds like his 1959 Fender Bandmaster to us. And it sounds spectacular—the Double Classic really nails a super clean amp pushed to overdrive. Active Treble and Bass controls help you tailor the pedal to your guitar and there's never a flat moment.

The Pre/Post switch reverses the order of the effects. Drive first? Compressor first? You decide; both sound great.

Best of all, the Double Classic has a very low noise floor, so running both sides at once won't hum you off stage and into the green room. This pedal is truly deserving of its name.

Analog Alien Double Classi Features:

  • Full-featured independently switchable preamp and compressor sides
  • Preamp sounds like (to us) Joe's 1959 Bandmaster
  • Rugged design
  • Hand-built in USA
