Guitar World Staff Picks: Paul Riario’s Top Five Effect Pedals of 2012
Guitar World Gear Editor Paul Riario chooses his top five new effect pedals of 2012.
04. Wampler Pedals Brent Mason V2 Hot Wired
Last year I picked Wampler Pedals' Brent Mason Hot Wired as one of my favorite pedals, and just when I thought this two-in-one overdrive/distortion pedal is about as good as it gets, they release the V2.
The V2 Hot Wired ($259.97) adds more flexibility with a blend control to mix in your clean signal with the overdrive and a slightly more organic, warmer overdrive on its overdrive channel. The pedal can be used as an overdrive or a distortion pedal with its two separate foot switches, or both channels can be cascaded together to get both gain stages “stacked” for more gain.
