Wampler Belle Overdrive

Effects Pedal for Electric Guitar

The Belle's circuit is based on a popular (especially in Nashville) overdrive pedal and Brian Wampler's special version offers everything you would expect: from a warm and clean boost at low gain levels, to transparent overdrive/medium distortion at higher gain levels.

Included among Brian's improvements are additional gain capabilities and a bass control for controlling overtones, all the way from smooth and creamy to tight and crisp.

  • Controls: Bass, Color, Level, Gain
  • Push switch: Clipping
  • Footswitch: On/Off
  • Input: 6.3 mm jack
  • Output: 6.3 mm jack
  • Power adapter connector: Barrel connector, 5.5 x 2.1 mm, negative polarity inside
  • Operates via 9-18 V DC power supply unit (not included, suitable power supply available under Article Nr 409939)
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 38 x 89 x 38 mm

Note: Battery operation is not supported.

A very nice interpretation of the clasical ODR pedal
Pepegotera, 04.02.2021
I had an ODR mini that I really liked as a neutral distorsion pedal, but the bass became a bit too dominant with the gain set at max. This pedal allows to remove bass from the signal with a dedicated bass control and it adds an alternative clipping section.

The pedal is well built (in USA) and it has extra features and that increases the price compared to the ODR mini, which is built in China. If you plan to keep this type of pedal for a long time I think it is worth the extra price.

Sehr flexibles Drive mit weitem Anwendungsbereich
Andreas W, 11.01.2021
Da hat Wampler mal wieder etwas tolles hervorgebracht. Den sehr gerne verwendeten ODR-Drive in einer in den Details verbesserten Variante

Box
- sehr kompaktes Pedal, aber immer noch recht gut zu bedienen
- gute Verarbeitung und einigermaßen schwerlaufende Potis verhindern ein al zu schnelles Verstellen
- der Switch an der Seite ist vielleicht nicht immer so gut positioniert af einem Board, aber es gibt eben auch sehr wenig Platz in dieser kompakten Form

Sound - das Wichtigste
- sehr flexibel und deckt in guter bis sehr guter Qualität wirklich von Clean Push bis Lead sehr vieles ab
- die Einstellung von Gain und Tone (sehr gutes Konzept, wobei die beiden EQ-Regler vieles herstellen können) ist in weiten Teilen nutzbar
- Switch an der Seite liefert eine Variante zwischen Klarheit und Kompression, die eine gute Anpassung an die Wünsche ermöglicht
- Sehr hohe Sound-Qualität und in vielen Einstellungen sehr transparent und durchsetzungsfähig

Sehr empfehlenswert im Vergleich mit zahlreichen Drives und wird sicherlich ein neuer Standard auf meinem Board mit hoher Flexibilität

BabyBelle!
PegLeg, 08.11.2020
For the first time I?m actually considering a pedalboard with only mini-FX on it - this sounds really good & is fairly easy to maneuver.

I use this with a old Deluxe Reverb and a Tele for low gain overdrive, kind of like the sound you get when turning up the amp volume to where it starts to distort - but with acceptable sound pressure.

Pros: Tiny with a big sound, think the modern OD-1 with more gain on hand + the smooth/assymetrical clipping button.

Cons: The knob text is a bit too tiny for MY eyes, I had to find my glasses - which explains only 4 stars for handling.
Not really a con, but I would have preferred the soft footswitch found on the Tumnus - maybe it?s too big for the enclosure while a "normal" switch fits.

Asolut brauchbar
Bernot, 18.03.2021
Ich habe mir diesen Overdrive auch aufgrund der gezeigten Youtube Videos gekauft. Die dort gehörten Soundmöglichkeiten haben mich von der Qualität überzeugt. Das Pedal kann vielseitig eingesetzt werden. Bei mir kommt es in der Reihenfolge auf dem Pedalboard nach dem Stimmgerät. Somit nutze ich es hauptsächlich als leichten Overdrive.
Man kann das Belle so einstellen, dass es dem Grundsound mehr Mitten und somit eine bessere Durchsetzungskraft im Bandgefüge ermöglicht. Es kann aber auch als ein reines Overdrive Pedal dienen. Die Verzerrung ist für einen (Blues-) Rocksound m.E. ausreichend.
Auch zum "Anblasen" von anderen Overdrive Pedalen eignet sich das Belle hervorragend. Was mir besonders gut gefällt, ist, dass die Verzerrung beim Ausklang nicht zerbröselt, sondern schön ausklingt.
