The Faux Tape Echo delay has become a staple in Nashville and beyond, from masterful session guitarists to studio "house sound" collections and of course seen on stages worldwide! Based around very carefully selected and very rigorously tested PT2399 delay chips, the Faux AnalogEcho and Faux Tape Echo circuits allowed Brian to combine the note clarity of a sophisticated digital delay with an all-analog dry path (unaffected signal) and magnificent all-analog tone-shaping and modulation circuitry.

What does that actually mean for musicians? The answer to that is "everything!" With our hybrid design approach, you get the best of both worlds. You get note clarity, lower noise, and longer delay times from digital delays. You get the lovely warmth and little, exquisite touches that are usually reserved for analog delays. Nearly every part of the pedal, all of its major functions, are analog. The "delay line" is the only digital part of the signal path. It alone being digital brings clarity and focus to the task in a way that analog delay line chips can't really match.

But everything else, all the absolutely vital filtering to carefully finish the sound is pure analog. Every aspect of the modulation that gives the Faux Tape Echo pedal a unique function and tone and makes it desirable for people who want their delay tone to sound as good as tape delay units but without all the maintenance, supplies, and hassle? Totally analog. Your all-important fundamental dry tone is 100% analog, too.

So when we say it's the best of both worlds, we absolutely mean it. From country slap-back to ambient washes to straight-ahead rock and metal delay, the hybrid approach lets Brian make one pedal that can do it all.

Still, we wouldn't be Wampler Pedals if we didn't listen to our users, artists, and dealers, and take into account feature requests... In this case, we'd have to plug our fingers in our ears if we were to ignore all the people shouting for TAP TEMPO! And let's face it, Brian Wampler wouldn't be who he is if he weren't always thinking of a better way to accomplish something cool, in this case a great sounding and more adjustable new modulation that will put the Faux Tape Echo's "Faux Tape Reel" into our most authentic territory yet.

This new version of the Faux Tape Echo takes everything great about the original, and adds to it that much-requested tap tempo functionality that users have asking for, as well as Brian's new idea in emulating the elusive and beautiful character that people look for in classic tape echo units. The time has come to unveil the Faux Tape Echo that everyone has been waiting for – and we've all worked hard to make sure you're going to love it!

From humble beginnings of modding pedals to today with full fledge production of his original designed boutique pedals – Brian Wampler, CEO of Wampler Pedals, Inc. is helping create some of the world’s best guitar tones – one tone filled pedal at a time.Brian first and foremost is a guitar player and has always been a “gear nut” – constantly trying different guitars, amps, pedals, and every combination thereof - always with the same goal of trying to achieve the best tone possible! The quest for great tones has been a life long endeavor that started from the time Brian was a kid watching his older brother’s band practice “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” over and over. Almost a decade later, Brian is still creating some of the world’s best guitar tones from his own boutique guitar pedal company.So why build guitar pedals for a living? In the beginning - every pedal on the market that Brian played just wasn’t producing the tones he was longing for. So instead of being unhappy with stock tones, he started tweaking and modding pedals here and there to get close to the tones he kept hearing in his head. 
Ultimately, the tweaked pedals weren’t making the cut either and Brian started making brand new designs that didn’t sound like anything on the market – as a result Wampler Pedals was born and the rest as they say is history.With a great selection of current products and more new arrivals coming all the time, Brian Wampler continues to introduce world-class guitar tone to great guitar players. The process from guitar pedal creation to its release is sometimes a lengthy one however.


The pedal ultimately goes through a series of tests before others can enjoy it to. Brian tests his pedal prototypes through a plethora of guitars and amps before releasing it into the wild to insure each new pedal sounds good with a wide variety of guitar rig setups. The pedals then get played in a live situation, and once completely satisfied – they are manufactured right here in the United States in our facility in Paducah, KY.

Brian has put together an incredible team to ensure that every pedal that we make is as high quality as if he made it himself. Each pedal is built with the highest standards and best component parts possible to insure a lifetime of hard use on the road and in the studio. Brian also prides himself on customer service and has assembled an administrative staff in his hometown of Martinsville, IN to provide some of the best customer support in the industry.
