News: Mrs. Wampler Pedals... the real CEO of Wampler Pedals



Just a note: This is a Q&A, an interesting insight into the spouse's perspective of owning a pedal business. Some of those who like the longer style of videos may like it, but there's no guitar playing on this video. Plenty of guitar discussion though, though from my better half's point of view.

On this special Vlog, we answer some questions from the Tone Group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/wampl...) and get Amanda's perspective on the pedal business. For those who may not know, Amanda is most often called "the real CEO of Wampler Pedals" among the staff, and wife of Brian. In short, she helps run much of the business and picks up the slack that Brian leaves hanging around, which can be quite a bit :D
