Wet 'N Wild: Five Essential Guitar Reverb Pedals

Wampler Faux Spring Reverb

As we mentioned earlier, there’s a whole universe of bite-size pedals out there that attempt to replicate the distinct, soaking-wet sound of the gigantic ’63 Fender Tube Reverb. That said, Wampler’s Faux Spring Reverb pedal does a damn fine job.

The pedal retains your analog base tone and doesn't send your signal through digital/analog converters and then back again (pummeling your tone in the process), allowing you to be as “springy” as you like, without your sound becoming lifeless, dull and horrible.

Its Shade control lets you adjust your sound and make your reverb as bright as day or dark as night — and everything in between. Other controls include Depth and Level, both of which are self-explanatory.

Wampler pedals are built in the U.S. and designed by tone-crazy Brian Wampler, who owns the small Indiana-based company.
