Wampler

A distortion pedal designed to be the only distortion you'll ever need.

When this pedal was thought up, it was decided that Wampler would take no prisoners. They would produce a pedal with so much gain it would wipe the floor with anything else.

This pedal is probably one of the tightest, thickest highest gain distortions you have ever heard. Many people say it sounds more like a 5150 amp to them than a distortion pedal. That may very well be - all we know is that Brian at Wampler designed it to just to be heavier than everything else and meaner than everything else, and it is.

With a solid three band EQ (total control allowing you to scoop out those mids without it peeking out the lows and highs like so many other pedals) you can emulate some of your favorite high gain tones, but as this pedal is so versatile, you can easily find a distinctive tone all of your own. Believe it or not, even when the gain is backed off, this pedal is still useable, it still sounds great.

There are two distinct voices in this pedal, Hard and Brutal. The Hard gives you that warmer thump high gain where as the Brutal allows a little more sparkle to creep in, giving it that more recent, full audio spectrum feel.

So, Wampler already put in loads of gain, maybe more than you need, so they put in a boost switch. Putting a boost switch on an already high gain pedal may sound crazy but you'll be amazed at how well it works. It gives you two options via the Boost Contour blend control. With the boost on and it dialed round to counter-clockwise, your distortion is multiplied and you have the solo sound you have always wanted. Pinch harmonics are just there, in places you've never found them before. With it dialed round to clockwise, your pedal turns into a fuzzy monster... Tweak the EQ and you can get tone that will remind you of the Smashing Pumpkins all the way to some Pink Floyd kind of fuzzy solo tone. It's all there, waiting for you.

Think about your favorite high gain tone. Is it a high gain with the mids scooped out, or is it roll your hand across the knobs to get that in your face, fuzzy, brutal attitude-melting distortion? Whatever you are looking for, this is probably the only pedal on the market that can satisfy all of those options. This pedal should come with a public health warning.

    Comments about Wampler Triple Wreck Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Wamplers Triple Wreck is an extremely versatile distortion pedal. I was able to get sounds from barely overdriven bluesy tones to over the top distortion that would work well in all types of the heaviest metal music. There's a lot of variation in that one box. Even the smallest tweaks of the knobs can bring huge differences in sounds and responsiveness of the pedal. I didn't keep the Triple Wreck though. Even though it has three tone knobs (low, mid, high) I couldn't get the midrange sound that I wanted out of the unit. I'm really picky about my midrange tone, because that's what cuts through the mix. I'm sure that the tonal problem I was having was because of all the other effects on my pedal board. But I didn't want to change them out to accommodate using one pedal. I'm a HUGE Wampler fan and run 5 of his other effects on my board because they give me the tone I want. I would recommend this pedal to anyone wanting a very versatile distortion that is able to be used in any type of music requiring distortion/overdrive.

      Comments about Wampler Triple Wreck Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This pedal sounds amazing! You can get everything from warm overdrive tones to brutal and I mean BRUTAL fuzz. It's all in there! The best thing is the clarity and organic sound this pedal has to offer. Besides my tube screamer this is the only dirt pedal I have on my board. No need for fuzz pedals or any other high gain pedal with the triple wreck you get it all. The pedal itself is not much bigger then a standard boss pedal. Play this through a clean tube amp and you are golden.
