OVERVIEW

Sometimes you need extreme gain. Sometimes you need mild overdrive. The Pinnacle Standard Distortion does that with an awesome "Brown Sound"! It has an extremely tweakable EQ - from scooped mids to tons of warm mids, all with the turn of two knobs.

This pedal has four knobs--two separate tone controls that act as a sort of parametric EQ, gain and volume. It also has a 'bright' switch that adds a ton of variety and is very handy when playing a dark sounding amp, as well as another toggle switch that will give you high gain "Brown Sound" tones through its Gain Boost.

A simple, versatile distortion that nails the coveted "Brown Sound."

FEATURES
  • Hand made in the U.S.A.
  • High grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound and response
  • Completely true bypass
  • Battery connection and 9v power jack (barrel plug like Boss)
  • Standard: Power draw: 4mA
  • Boost switch alters gain structure to take it from overdrive to distortion.
  • High gain, crunchy and dynamic pedal with an extremely tweakable EQ
  • High boost switch for using with amps that are not very bright and sparkly clean
  • Powder coated durable finish

    Comments about Wampler Pinnacle Standard Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I would like to add to my other comment, no pedal or equipment will make you play like Y.J.M. or E.V.H, or any one else for that matter, but great equipment gives you the tools, to get the professional sound that great artists have. I think you should always strive to develop your own unique sound. Of course we all have some of the riffs of other guitar players in our development along the way, but subtle things like the way you vibrato a note, or your pick attack, can make quite a difference. Even the adjustments on your Amplifier, Treble, Bass, Midrange, etc., and the same goes for your Pedals. What sounds good to your ear, might not sound just right to another, but that's O.K. that's what its all about, and the possibilities are endless. So the point is, with the" Pinnacle" for instance, is the way you or someone else adjusts it will get different results, and that's what makes the world of music so fun. Keep on picking, and enjoy playing, I know I do.

    Comments about Wampler Pinnacle Standard Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I don't agree that this is a one trick pedal, I have the Sovereign and the Triple Wreck also great pedals. I have been playing along time, and am picky about tone and versatility, I can get different sounds from these pedals just by playing with my volume nob, everything from Y.J.M. and E.V.H. to Kansas, or Modern Country Rock, and J. Tull or anything in between. Bottom line Wampler makes great sounding pedals, top notch pro equipment, love these pedals, you will too !!!

          While this pedal is not particularly versatile, it does provide a dead ringer EVH "brown sound." It's a bit of a one trick pony, but it performs that trick really, really well.

          If you want to sound EVH-esque, run a super strat and this pedal through about any amp and enjoy.
