Product Description

Sometimes you need extreme gain, sometimes you need mild overdrive... the Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe Distortion pedal 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 2 knobs.

This pedal has 4 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.

Pinnacle v. Pinnacle 'deluxe'

The Pinnacle and Pinnacle Deluxe share the same great tone. The difference comes in the form of a couple special features found on the Deluxe version that make it more involved for them to make, but which add some extra versatility for you. While the standard Pinnacle has a toggle switch to control its Gain Boost, the Pinnacle Deluxe has that same functionality on a foot switch, so you can kick it in without having to bend down in the middle of a song. The only other difference is that the Pinnacle Deluxe has an additional, internal volume adjustment (just in case you need to go to "11" on the output volume). Because of the added switch, the Pinnacle Deluxe is a little bit larger than the standard Pinnacle, something to keep in mind if you're running a packed pedal board.

Which Pinnacle is right for you isn't a question of tone, because they both nail that coveted "Brown Sound"..! It just comes down to whether you need the special features found on the Pinnacle Deluxe, or prefer the smaller footprint of the standard Pinnacle.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Wampler Pinnacle lives up to its name"
Sound: Being a fan of Wampler Pedals I expected this pedal to sound great. That being said I found it to be a different sort of distortion pedal. Sounds much different than most pedals I have used. It is not extremely gainy but you can up the high range to the point of being way too much. Does the EVH brown sound thing most definitely. While not being as wash out gain as some pedals it has a lot of articulation and tonal issues most pedals don't. I find this pedal can generate a great sound on any amp, and I do many any. Feature: Gave it a 9 here not because it does not have incredible tone circuits but no bass control. The pedal has a decent level of bass would be nice to have that option to bump it a little more. The tone control sounds best around mid give or take and serves to roll off the high end, The Contour does a mid cut function all the way clockwise you get the mid scoop tone, to left it opens the mids sounds good around mid. I find I like about 10:00 on both. Vintage to modern switch which boosts the high end presence. At first I though the Vintage might be too dark but that is where I end up using it on my board. Std. vol, large amount of gain vol in this pedal, tremendous out out range. Dist is usually full up on my use but I can see you could roll back and get more of an OD tone that would have some of this pedal's glorious tones. Boost switch gives you a bit more intensity and I usually keep mine on. Ease of Use: Not really any bad tones in here. Treble can get too high if you crank the tone. Dist level is always useful and sounds great. Once you get the idea of the contour and treb ranges you are off and running. Quality: Wampler makes great pedals, high end top shelf all the way. If Brian makes it I know it as good as it gets component wise and build. Value: While $200 or 220 might seem like a lot here. You do get a box of tone for your money. It is expensive these days to maintain a sense of manufacturing, supply, and shipping much less trying to maintain a supply of top shelf components in quantity. Brian is not going to ever make a $50 or less pedal, not sure how such a thing can be done. Wampler pedals are good looking with paint often metal flake and thick, Smooth controls and good switches. I know whenever I drop the money on a Wampler pedal it is going to deliver the tone. Manufacturer Support: Seem like a nice group. Brian is a nice guy and has often commented to me on youtube and email personally. He will spend the time with the little guy as well as the name. One reason I like to promote his line, he tries and he cares and does not cop an attitude with you. Wampler will repair anything that might go bad. I cannot see that ever happening but freak things can occur. The Wow Factor: Quite frankly I will not be satisfied until I have ever pedal Wampler makes. Some like my Ecstasy OD I would like to have 2 just for box spare. Overall: I know many times it is said it's a keeper. I may indeed get different pedals at some point but nothing I have of Wampler is going to be replaced. The Pinnacle and the Ecstasy Overdrive are named accordingly as far as I am concerned. Simply the best drive I have ever had and the Pinnacle a most unique distortion fun box. Wampler's Overdrives are king and his high gain distortion models kill anything else.
