Wampler introduces the Ace Thirty
AC30 clone pedal, part of the “Heritage Series” (series also includes a JTM-45 style Plexi Drive, ‘65 black-face, ‘57 tweed)

Top boost channel can be used independently, or stacked on top
Seems like a really nice, chimy “always on” option with a little extra something on top
