Fusion in its current form is a fairly recent concept, with roots not only in theoretical jazz but rock; not classic blues based rock, but the more technically advanced "shredders" that first became popular in the mid to late 80's.
The fusion players have spent years honing their craft. With the advent of internet guitar lessons, people all over the world are looking towards fusion as their style of musical expression, the modern era of soloists that are taking the instrument another stage further.
Sometime in mid 2011 Wampler received an email from Tom Quayle showing an interest in their pedals. So, after some discussion Tom bought a Euphoria and a Paisley Drive. From the moment he plugged them in, his tone had been taken a huge step forward.
When playing high energy Fusion, you need dirt that follows every move you make. It needs to allow the guitar to work and respond perfectly, and with Wampler Pedals, Tom found this.
When Wampler got to meet Tom in person that following January in NAMM, a discussion took place where Tom told them what he loved about that combination and what wasn't quite working. They loved his thoughts. At the show, a concept was born that took just over 12 months to be realized.
So, what was that idea? It was quite simple (well, it appeared that way). Take those two circuits, highlight the most usable tones, modify them extensively to ensure that they stack perfectly and then put them in the same box. Also, make the stacking switchable...C1 into C2, or C2 into C1. While you are there, separate them with dedicated inputs/outputs should you use a looper switching system. Basically, make it as versatile and useable as possible.
Upon receiving the first proto type, Tom said "The major improvement is just how amp-like the response is. In that department I have never played a pedal that is as good as this. It sounds exactly like a gainy tube amp and feels like one too. It's very exciting and fun to play through - you totally forget that you're playing a pedal."
How does it compare to the originals? Well, that is a good question. The main thing you will notice when playing the Dual Fusion is that the gain structures are more refined on both sides, both sound slightly more natural and they are more organic. Transparency is the word. When you stack them together the transparency of them really shines through.
