Martinsville, IN  September 2012 - Wampler Pedals, makers of the Paisley Drive™ and Ego Compressor™ and long-time friends of highly awarded guitarist Brent Mason are adding the Brent Mason Signature Hot Wired V2™ dual-channel overdrive/distortion to their pedal lineup.


Brian comments on updating a design which has become a staple in Nashville, "Brent's needs are always evolving and I wanted to be absolutely sure that he can get the tones he needs today from his signature pedal.  We went over the specs for the original for a period of eighteen  months! It's a challenge to make a pedal that can meet the needs of a player as prolific and varied as Brent but we've spent many months more on the Hot  Wired V2™ and it has some very cool features that are very useful to Brent or any guitarist out there who needs a Swiss  army knife in a pedal."

Changes include a totally revamped Channel One (overdrive side), including a useful clean blend function, as well as enhanced  tone controls for both channels thanks to the addition of three-position Fat/Normal/Fatter switches. Like the original Brent Mason Signature Hot Wired™, each channel is usable separately, making it a true 2-in-1 pedal, and Channels 1 and 2 can be active simultaneously.  How the user sets them up determines how they sound together, so players can expect a range from light drive to heavy distortion when combining them.

• Controls: Channel 1 has Volume, Overdrive, Tone, and Blend knobs. Channel 2 has  Volume, Distortion and Tone knobs. Both channels have individual Fat/Normal/Fatter switches.

• True 2-in-1 operation, each channel is separately usable or they can be "stacked"  together.

• 4.5" x 4.5" in size (114.3mm x 114.3mm)
