Product Description

The Wampler Triple Wreck high gain distortion pedal... When Wampler thought of this pedal, it was decided that they would take no prisoners, they would produce a pedal with so much gain it would wipe the floor of anything else.

This pedal is probably one of the tightest, thickest highest gain distortions you have ever heard...Many people have told them that it sounds more like a 5150 amp to them, that may very well be - Brian Wampler designed it to just to be an butt kicking distortion pedal, heavier than everything else, meaner than everything else, and it is.

All this distortion comes before you click on the boost switch. Click it on and the cream crunch knob takes you from even higher gain (waaaaaaaay high gain) to fuzzy Smashing Pumpkins-esque Big Muff type of tones (but with a 3 band eq). Of course, you can get the Gilmour BMP tones as well, but the only thing missing from this pedal is the parental advisory certificate.

Think about your favourite 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, fuzz, attitude melting distortion. Whatever you are looking for, this is probably the only pedal on the market that can satisfy all of those options. This pedal should come with a public health warning.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Metallica in a box!"
Overall: Recently, I sold my Mesa Mark V for an EVH 5150 III. I wanted something a little more aggressive with better low end and higher saturation. While the EVH does this perfectly, it doesn’t have quite the creaminess that the Mark V does. This wouldn’t be an issue except that I love playing Metallica riffs, and you can’t get any closer to a creamy old-school Metallica tone than you can with a Mesa. Well, until now that is. Enter Triple Wreck, aka, Metallica in a box. The Triple Wreck does an absolutely amazing job of emulating a Mesa Rectifier tone. It is incredibly easy to dial into and sounds great at any volume. Having played around with Dual Recs, I find them hard to dial into and they don’t sound the best unless they’re really cranked. I live in an apartment, so finding gear that sounds great at lower levels is very important to me (and my neighbors). The Triple Wreck takes the best of the Dual Recs and allows you to do less tweaking and more playing. As I mentioned before, I bought this primarily to match the Metallica tone, and that it does. Just using the recommended 80s settings in the instruction manual, I’m able to get a very decent Black Album tone right away. The pedal is also capable of a plethora of other tones, but I use it entirely for Metallica metal. While I love the Triple Wreck, this box of holy grail tone goodness is not perfect. Being a pedal, it does lend itself slightly to a more digital sound, but only slightly. I only say this because when I bypass the pedal and play channel 3 on my amp, I notice the tubes more. That is to be expected though. Secondly, this little sucker is expensive. Almost $300 for a pedal is quite a bit, but it does sound the best of any other metal pedal, hands down. I’ve seen people of forums say that you can achieve the same sound with cheaper pedals, but I completely disagree. I tried a variety of pedals out before picking up the Triple Wreck, and they all sounded fizzy and artificial in comparison. I hoped this review helped give you some insight into the pedal, and how it suits the needs of a bedroom playing metal head. Here is my gear setup as well in case you’re curious: EVH 5150 III 50 watt head, Mesa Dual Rec 2x12 cab, and a LTD EC-1000 with active EMG pickups. Cheers!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awsome Effects!!"
Overall: I recently purchased the Wampler Triple Wreck in search of a multi distortion effects pedal...WOW!!...I definitely found it here. With some tweaking if the knobs, you can pretty much cover any sound your looking for, between Metallica, AC/DC, Scorpions...no matter what your taste is, Wampler stuffed all these in this pedal...If your looking for a "Great All Around Distortion Pedal", this is the one!!
