That Pedal Show – Wampler Bravado: What Is A Pedal Platform Amp Anyway?

Published on Mar 10, 2017

In this episode we take a look at Wampler’s new-for-2017 amp, the Bravado. It’s being marketed specifically as a great ‘pedal platform amp’, so we’re taking the opportunity to try it out while contemplating the whole question of what makes a good pedal amp, anyway?
For completely arbitrary comparison, we’re also using a Mesa Lone Star head. We could have picked any amp, but we chose this one as it’s pretty good with pedals too!
