Wampler Gives You That "Brown Sound" Distortion in a Pedal
Edward Van Halen's longtime guitar tech Zeke Clark has claimed that the Wampler Pinnacle Distortion pedal nails that hot and heavy "brown sound" with remarkable precision. This distortion pedal fuels your signal with awesomely powerful overdrive that's dynamically shaped via volume, gain, tone, and contour control dials. There's a boost toggle to fire even more gain into your amplifier, along with a vintage/modern toggle switch to tweak the harmonics of those higher frequencies for a more modern, high-gain crunch versus a vintage overdrive. If you want some serious gain to step up your game, then let this pedal give your axe the overdriven sonic force it deserves.
Hear Steve Townsend play some EVH licks through the Wampler Pinnacle distortion pedal:
Powerfully Potent Overdrive
You'll struggle to find a shredder who doesn't fall victim to the irresistible allure of that punchy and powerful "brown sound" distortion. This pedal offers that over-stacked amp-in-a-box overdrive that floods the room when pushed to the max. If you're looking for that high-gain sonic furor to fuel your rig, you've found your next piece of gear.
Dynamic Reach Via Simple Control Layout
To help you hit that sweet spot, your Wampler Pinnacle Distortion pedal is equipped with tone, contour, volume, and gain control dials. The contour control will boost or cut the mids, and the tone dial will brighten or darken your signal. The volume sets the output level, and the gain rolls in the distortion. Hit the vintage/modern switch to change how your amp is "voiced." Finally, if you need a little extra oomph, utilize the boost switch to add a shot of gain and attack to the table.
More Compact than the Pinnacle Deluxe
Your Wampler Pinnacle Distortion pedal is the compact version of the Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe. The main difference is that the Deluxe pedal has a stompable boost footswitch, while this original Pinnacle has the toggle switch. The smaller footprint allows for more space on your pedalboard, and that's great because this compact companion stacks incredibly well with other effects pedals.
