In this demo I'm using the Tweed '57™ on my Yamaha A3M acoustic to warm up the signal and give it some more saturation. For the lead part I'm using a stratocaster with Suhr ML pickups into the Tweed '57™ with an Egnater Renegade all tube amp head.
I'm using the neck pickup starting with the volume rolled off somewhat while gradually increasing it. In the bridge section I'm switching over to the bridge pickup which has an added mid boost. I've also set the tone knob to about 5 to 6 to warm up the signal on the bridge pickup.
Settings on the Tweed '57™ for the lead ('o'clock values):
Bass: 8 - Middle: 2 - Treble: 11 - Volume: 2 - Gain: 2 - Input Simulator: Linked.
Settings on the Acoustic:
Bass: 11 - Middle: 12 - Treble: 1 - Volume: 1 - Gain: 9:30 - Input Simulator: Normal.
Thank you Brian and Jason for providing this killer pedal!

Brian Wampler is a confirmed tone friend. He has to be, to make the kind of excellent sounding and great playing pedals Wampler Pedals is known for.
As a fan of the Nashville sound over many years and a careful observer of classic tones, it's only natural that Brian would eventually focus on bringing his established Amp-in-a-Box prowess to classic Fender® amp sounds.
You can't listen to a great player ripping it up on a classic Fender® without being inspired, and inspired he was! But Brian knew that his work making the Black '65™ would need to be followed up by another pedal to make the classic Fender® amplifier inspired Wampler Pedals™ family whole. When you go back in time, past the era that inspired the sound of the Black '65™, you find yourself in the land of tweed, where raw, driven sounds offered guitarists new possibilities that they had never heard before, sounds that have found their way onto now-historic recordings.
The Tweed '57™ is designed to give you a generous range of tonal possibilities, all centered around and inspired by the mid-to-late 1950s Fender amp sound. Playing well with single coils or humbuckers, and equally capable of singular clarity as well as powerful, raw drive, the Tweed '57™ provides you with a dynamic, authentic-sounding tone with responsiveness that we feel outdoes just about anything out there for recreating the amazing '50s sounds that so many players love.
With a vintage American tone structure and input simulation options reminiscent of the amps that inspired Brian's design, this pedal is an extremely attentive, loving homage to sounds that are getting harder and harder to find -- and with the Tweed '57™, you can achieve amazing tone at any volume, perfect for the studio or the stage.
