OVERVIEW

Set the room ablaze with this fire-breathing pedal.

A modern monster of gain - everything you love about high gain but with that contemporary depth, aggression, clarity and power to blow every other pedal away.

Recently, a style of tones has come forward that has been devastating in not only the power of the gain, but the depth and clarity it provides to the player. Long gone are the doom laden distortions that destroyed the guitars tone and dominated mid ranges, now it's all about the clarity, articulation, face melting, fire breathing distortion that will bring a wall of sound from your amp.

With the now-famous Wampler 3 band active EQ to sculpt the tone perfectly, also included is a gain switch giving you two different styles of distortion. Open - is, as you might guess, extremely open and free - minimal compression with maximum tone. Tight brings in a natural compression, like a tube amp being driven to the very edge. The great thing about the tight is that when on a lower gain setting it can do a really good lower gain tone as well, this setting makes the Dracarys one of the most versatile modern distortions available today. There is no waste with this pedal, all tones are useable and easily available.

    Comments about Wampler Dracarys High Gain Distortion Pedal:

    Dracarys works very well, there is plenty of gain for any heavier style, New soft foot switch is nice. Sound is nice and clear, this is def. one of the better high gain pedals! It won't replace a good high gain tube amp necessarily, but it comes pretty close in my opinion for a pedal. This pedal is replacing a mk1 5150, and is currently running through a Fender Champion 600, or a Princeton Reverb and it works great. Casing is solid as you'd expect from wampler.

      Comments about Wampler Dracarys High Gain Distortion Pedal:

      Kudos to Brian Wampler on this pedal...amazing distortion! I put this pedal to use on my mesa mrk5 35 watt head and wow. Before I starting tweaking out this pedal I had everything set to 12 o clock and already had a great sound of course I did do extra tweaking from there. This pedal is great if you only have a 2 channel amp and want to go from clean to crunch to lead. This pedal is highly responsive and set right your solos will soar. I first saw this pedal on youtube at the namm festival by the tone king and I am glad I did I love this pedal and I get beautiful clean yet blistering distortion out of it. If you have an amp thats low watt and you cant seem to get enough punch this is the pedal for you It will do the trick and it can be set so you dont get a muddy sound unless you need it. I can get those Satch and Vai tones out of this pedal and I love the name as i dig the dragon queen on game of thrones this pedal will definitely add dragon fire to your sound not only that I know that Brian Wampler is big on tone and takes pride in his work!
