Windmiller Drive

Tones You Never Knew You Knew

Aclam has been extremely successful in creating amazing tones of classic famous rigs outside of the normal “Marshall in a box” territory.
The Cinnamon drive focused on tones of an era where-as Dr. Roberts unlocked George Harrison’s tones from Sg. Peppers all of which we’ve grown up with.

Now … it’s the turn of The Who, and in particular Pete Townsend’s secret tone device.
You may have heard how some guitarists such as Jimmy Page used the preamp of an Echo Plex delay to thicken up their tone and to give their amps a nice push!?
Well, Pete Townsend got his unique tones around ’67 from the pre-amp of a reverb unit called the Grampian 636 Spring Reverb.
The Windmiller is Aclam’s recreation of this extremely rare reverbs pre-amp, they’ve fine-tuned it to remove the original phenomenal amount of hiss and it now works well with all types of amps and pick-up types.

Each of the Aclam pedals is a slice of history recreated for you to recreate on your board.
