Product Details

After the successful release of the Hawker, I became fascinated by the guitar tones coming out of Nashville by players such as Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and Zac Brown Band’s Clay Cook.

I had, perhaps naively, assumed that the classic Country guitar sound was a Telecaster plugged into a Tweed amplifier. These players proved me wrong in such a big way.

Those guys are playing anything BUT a tweed amp, so a deep-dive down that rabbithole resulted in my latest original design, the Wheelhouse.

In similar fashion to how the Hawker captures classic British valve tones, I wanted to do the same for the sounds coming out of the studios, sessions, and live shows of Nashville.

Plug in a Stratocaster or Telecaster for big, rich, cleans that turn into thick, complex overdriven sounds when the volume is turned up. Fancy some chickin’ pickin’?

The Wheelhouse offers a natural-yet-subtle compression that augments rather than subtracts. It’ll take PAFs too, allowing the nuanced detail of those pickups to shine through.
