Nothing to write home about  (By JClifton)

If you were stranded on a desert island with only this pedal and a fave tube amp and guitar you would be happy as a clam with the tone - assuming clams could hear and I'm not sure they can. However, you're not on that island and you have a range of OD choices and many for a lot less cash. This is a good pedal but for 200 clams, I was expecting a lot more. See how I did that. The three band eq is nice but doesn't add a lot of value. I prefer the classic TS, Green Rhino and if you're dead set on spending the cash, get a Rocket Archer. (Posted on 11/19/15)
Fantastic overdrive pedal  (By Kevin)

To put it quite simply, this is a fantastic overdrive pedal. I currently use this with my Fender Stratocaster (Am. Std.) through a Vox AC15C1 amp. On the market for a new overdrive pedal, I purchased it after being impressed by a number of demos on Youtube. Wampler's Clarksdale Delta Overdrive offers a palate of tonal possibilities by including 3 band EQ, volume, and gain knobs as well as a lift/smooth toggle switch. The 3 band EQ knobs (bass, mids, treble) are especially versatile as they provide the tonal freedom lacking with say a Boss Blues Driver. In combination with the other knobs (and my amp!) the pedal can give me a subtle bit of grit when I want it, which is especially nice on the clean/normal channel, to something much dirtier if desired. Additionally, the instructions give some nice presets for John Mayer-ish and SRV-like tones (my FAVORITE tones). To top it off, the pedal LOOKS great with its Highway 61-Junction 49 design and it is handmade in America! The only thing I wasn't too ecstatic about is that both the input and output jacks are on the top of the pedal rather than the sides. Although this may be a problem for some pedal board junkies it definitely wasn't a deal breaker for me. Overall, the Clarksdale Delta Overdrive is a fantastic overdrive pedal and I would easily recommend it to anyone (especially those that veer towards more bluesy guitar playing). (Posted on 2/4/15)

This pedal is a precious gift to the guitar community. It was made with you in mind, so you could connect with it, connect to life and love and inspiration. The Clarksdale has been voiced perfectly to give you everything you need, a broad spectrum of tonal understanding. (Posted on 10/15/14)

Wampler Clarksdale Overdrive

The Clarksdale Overdrive finds its namesake in Clarksdale, Mississippi, the official birthplace of delta blues. With a circuit design as timeless as the blues, the Tube Screamer has been hand in hand with the delta sound since 1979. And since then, players have been searching for “the one.” Oftentimes, players will flip pedals as quickly as they change strings. Brian Wampler, however, knows dirt better than perhaps anyone on the planet, and has meticulously crafted the Clarksdale to be the most precision-calibrated take on the Screamer sound to date.

A three-band EQ adorns the front of the Clarksdale, to make the pedal adaptable to any guitar and amp combination currently on the market. Never again will players complain about any type of overbearing mid-hump; the mids of the Clarksdale can be as pronounced as the player wishes, which gives the pedal an automatic edge when being fed into a Marshall, Vox or any other inherently midrange-y amplifier.

The Lift/Smooth toggle switch adds or removes clipping options to the feedback path of the Tube Screamer topology. However, unlike most other ‘Screamers, there is no inherent fizziness to the tone on either switch setting at either extreme of the Gain dial. Use Smooth clipping on low gain settings for a gentle crunch or the Lift setting on full-gain for unbridled raw rock fury—there won’t be a hint of fizz cluttering up your tone.

The Clarksdale is hand-built in the USA and is wired for true bypass. It accepts a standard 9v 2.1mm center-negative Boss-style power adapter. The current draw is 17mA—isolated power supply ready!‚Äč
