Go from Clean to Mean in Classic British-Amplifier Style!

Your Wampler cataPulp Amp-In-A-Box overdrive pedal fuels your signal with powerful British-amplifier-styled tones. Powerfully dynamic breakup in a compact footprint is what this tonal toolbox is all about. You have active three-band EQ control at your disposal along with easy-to-tweak gain and level dials. Like you'd expect from a Wampler pedal, the cataPulp features hand-built circuitry with high-grade film capacitors and resistors along with completely true-bypass circuitry to keep your signal's integrity in check. If you're looking to get some of that awesome "vintage British amp" tone without committing to buying a whole new amplifier, get your pedalboard ready for this compact machine of tone.

From Britain with Love

Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath are just a few of the bands that'll come to mind when you fire your signal through your Wampler cataPulp. That rich, vintage-voiced breakup that's associated with British-influenced rock is captured and ready for your rocking pleasure. Going from clean to metal in a simple tweak couldn't be easier, and with this much tone in a simple stompbox, you'll enjoy hours of dynamic overdrive suitable for just about any occasion.

Wampler's Attention to your Signal

Brian Wampler designs his pedals with careful attention to your signal as it makes its way from your axe to your amplifier. Modeling his pedals after earlier designs from other companies, Wampler soon started pushing boundaries in the arena of boutique guitar pedals. What you get with every stomp is precise amp-emulation effects that work well with a wide variety of guitars and amplifiers. As always, Wampler pedals' true-bypass configuration keeps your signal's original integrity intact when you disengage the effect.

Tweaking Your Output

Active 3-band EQ control works wonders for your output because it actually brings an EQ boost to the table, rather than just cutting the location of the node on the EQ frequency spectrum. The low-end boost emulates the sound of a closed-back 2x12 cab, the mid control provides ample room for scooping, and the high really brings in a nice helping of shine when dialed up. Your gain control brings in loads of overdrive and a slight boost in volume, so be sure to adjust your level control accordingly to hit that sonic sweet spot you're aiming for.

Wampler cataPulp Amp-In-A-Box Overdrive

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. This allows you to cover a lot of ground between those classic rock inspired tones all the way to a thick syrupy metal territory - Use it as a tone shaper or a secondary gain stage - a truly versatile tonal workhorse! The cataPulp also features an active 3 band EQ and top mounted jacks and our soft click electrical relay true by-pass switch. Wampler uses a true-bypass relay because it utilizes a quieter and smoother switch that is more reliable than traditional bypass switches. Your original tone/signal will remain unaffected when the pedal is not engaged.

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.

Features:

- Hand built in the U.S.A.
- High grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound and response
- Completely true bypass (soft relay switching)
- 9v power jack - 9v DC supply center pin negative
- Active 3 Band EQ for complete total tonal control
