6-Month* financing available.
A more aggressive and edgy British stack tone, bringing you the citrus power and tone to your amp.
Wampler wanted to make a pedal that could faithfully reproduce the tones of a specific citrus colored, British amp made famous by artists like Jimmy Page, Weezer, Queens of the Stone Age, and Slipknot… A distinctive tone that stands out in terms of power, width and dirt. After spending countless hours tweaking the circuit and testing it against many tones from those great amps, they were able to produce the one pedal that captures that attitude—the cataPulp.
The cataPulp’s gain structure truly represents what every great amp in a box (AIAB) should be, with super clean tones that get increasingly dirtier after the “12 o’clock” setting; it allows you to cover a lot of ground between those classic rock inspired tones all the way to a thick syrupy metal territory. You can use this pedal as a tone shaper or a secondary gain stage. As always with a Wampler, it’s a truly versatile tonal workhorse. The cataPulp also features an active 3-band EQ that will allow you to tweak and control your tone perfectly.
The cataPulp can provide you with everything from pristine cleans to the edgy, aggressive, grittier side of British distortion. It’s time to stand back and let your tone do the fighting.

Comments about Wampler Catapulp British Distortion Pedal:
Ok, so Orange amps have a distinct sound, I've only really played the micro and terror series, and absolutely love the OR15. Non of which I actually own. This pedal gets me close to those great sounds through any of my cheaper tube amps. I think where Wampler shines in their products is the touch sensitivity and the way there pedals respond to your playing.They almost seem like an extensive of your guitar and amps sound. Instead of creating a sterile sound, like so many other pedals can have. I was a little worried this would sound like every other "distortion" pedal , but it doesn't, it has a definite character to it that differs from other distortions out there. You really should sit down and fiddle with the knobs , they are all so active that slight changes really alter your sound, you can really go overboard with the tone controls and totally alter the sound. The volume and gain control also seems to effect the tone as well so take some time to really understand the ins and outs of the pedal. You will be rewarded with some awesome sounds. I also own the plexi-drive pedal and this has such a different sound and response. I actually prefer the tones I get from the catapulp, it's a little brighter and tighter and can go from a nice articulate overdrive to a solid chucky distortion in the middle gain range, and full fuzz mayhem at full gain. super versatile. It's awesome having all these different tones at my fingertips without having a room full of amps.
