A menacingly brutal distortion that provides two different modes plus a boost.

The Triple Wreck is probably one of the tightest, thickest highest gain distortions you have ever heard. Many people have told Wampler that it sounds more like a 5150® amp to them than a distortion pedal. All Wampler can say is that they designed it to just be an awesome distortion pedal, heavier than everything else, meaner than everything else, and it is.

With a solid 3-band EQ (you can 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.

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

Wampler's already put in loads of gain, maybe more than you need, so let’s stick in a boost switch. What? 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 right round 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, the Triple Wreck 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 Pedal:

    The Triple Wreck pedal gets a very usable and responsive tone. I only use it to emulate an MB rectifier amp. I'm running it stereo through a Marshall 275 with two 4x12 slant cabs with Vintage 30's. It chugs and grinds better than any other pedal I have ever used. It's not nearly as versatile as my Bogner Red pedal, but the one sound I use it for is worth it. Huge, musical bass without flubbing and it hits hard and fast - brutal. The mids are very tunable and I can play 3 different guitars and get very different responses and character from each. The highs are articulate on individual notes and tame nicely with a bit of tone knob. You can max out the tone knob and get Money for Nothing tones and still have good cut and a singing lead tone. This pedal in front of other amps also magnifies their character as well.

    Comments about Wampler Triple Wreck Distortion Pedal:

    I've had this pedal for a couple of years now so a review is overdue. Having this pedal on my board is like having a triple rectifier channel, it's awesome! I have my amp's OD, plus four other od/Dist pedals and it's like having a four+ channel head! Not to mention the Triple Wreck has a secondary function...... the BOOST. This boost switch is like having a crazy distorted fuzz tone at your disposal. It actually has a very smooth yet fuzzy lead tone as well that can be dialed in using the "boost" knob. In conclusion, this pedal will not be leaving my board in the foreseeable future. It's power requirement is 23mA so it's easy to daisy chain with another pedal or two.
