Guitar World Staff Picks: Paul Riario’s Top Five 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.
