Capture Some "Brown Sound" Distortion in a Simple Stompbox

Whether you're looking for that awesome Eddie Van Halen "brown sound," or just looking to get some beefy bluesy distortion, the Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe distortion pedal offers troves of hefty tone to invigorate your signal. This upgraded Pinnacle pedal delivers tone, contour, volume, and gain dials, and a modern/vintage switch lets you toggle between two awesome distortion settings. A footswitchable boost control allows for hands-free gain augmentation, and handmade true-bypass circuitry keeps your signal completely unadulterated when your Pinnacle Deluxe distortion pedal is disengaged. This single pedal will provide loads of tone to enhance your performance.

That EVH-Style "Brown Sound"

While Eddie Van Halen's technique and tone might be inimitable, the right gear can help you get a taste of the legendary sound crafted by the guitar master himself. Your Pinnacle Deluxe distortion pedal comes remarkably close to replicating many facets of EVH's signature distortion by solidly emulating a British stack sound. This baby gives you dynamic EQ control from just your Tone and Contour knobs, so you can get a little bit of that sweet mid-boost along with some potent gain for your signal.

Loads of Control from Four Dials

The Pinnacle Deluxe distortion pedal features tone, contour, volume, and gain controls to craft your sound. The volume sets the output level, and the gain brings in the breakup. The other two dials simulate parametric EQ control -- the Tone knob rolls off your highs, while the Contour knob lets you scoop out your mids or dial in more midrange punch. The vintage/modern toggle switch acts as a bright switch when flipped in the modern position, which is a great feature for adding some sparkle to darker-sounding amps.

Hand-Built True Bypass System

Wampler pedals are hand-built with careful attention paid to the implementation of film capacitors and resistors. Brian Wampler is known for his accuracy in emulating signature tones, so your Pinnacle Deluxe will deliver on demand with every stomp. A true bypass system keeps your signal intact and unchanged when this baby is switched off.

Boost Control on its Own Footswitch

Another cool feature on this pedal is the gain boost switch on the bottom left. This switch gives you a little more gain to fuel your signal for those times where you really want your axe to soar. Having the gain boost as a separate stomp-switch gives you more hands-free control of your sound, so you can keep things going without interrupting your performance or recording session.

Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe Distortion Pedal

Building on the foundations of the Pinnacle Standard and the original Deluxe, we are proud to bring to you the v2 of Wamplers biggest selling distortion pedal, the Pinnacle Deluxe.
We took everything we loved about the original and added many options to make the pedal more versatile. Before now, the Deluxe was the same as the standard but with the boost on the stomp instead of a switch. The v2 comes with a new EQ, more control and much more versatility.

The first thing you’ll notice is the 3 band EQ. With this, you will be able to sculpt your tone like never before. We’ve also added bright and bass boosts, so you can get that fresh tone or the thump of a 4x12”. Then, we added the “Valve Screamer” based pre gain boost (that you can use when the pedal is bypassed) – we all know how good this style of circuit pushes gain stages… Then, the secret weapon. One the side is the SAG switch. This can allow you to remove that saggy crunch and tighten the response up dramatically, so – this v2 offers not only an updated take on a Wampler classic, but also a plethora of new features that will be irresistible to tone chasers everywhere!

The Pinnacle Deluxe v2. From the Brown Sound to classic rock. From amp overdrive to screaming metal, you CAN have it all.

Features

- Built in the U.S.A.
- High grade components picked for their superior sound and response
- Relay true bypass with soft switch
- Top mounted input and output jacks
- Battery connection and 9v power jack
- Power draw: between 19mA (9v) and 23mA (18v)
- High gain, crunchy and dynamic pedal with an extremely tweakable EQ
- Valuable pre gain boost that works separately from the main circuit.

"WAMPLER PINNACLE DELUXE IS AWESOME!!!"
Overall: I've been an active musician/guitarist for nearly 30 years and I have owned and/or tried a ton of different equiptment over the years. WAMPLER products are second to None!!!! I own this pedal and the ecstasy drive, and WOW! I now have 3 gain stages that are transparent!!!! The pinnacle deluxe is awesome for medium gain to high gain. Not extreme gain, but thick heavy gain. Definitely great for the VH "brown sound" , but so much more! Serious classic rock tones!! Even Mettalica tones, if desired. The tone control on this pedal is seriously "active" Turned to the left,classic rock with Mid's, turn to the right, scooped Mid's . The classic/modern toggle is pretty cool as well. I love having the "boost" switch at my feet, so I can go from a nice "fat" rhythm tone (Black Crowes-ish) step on the boost and you've got "singing" VH lead tones!! I can't say enough about this pedal, Brian Wampler is a Genious!!! I currently run this in front of a Fender Deluxe '65 and it is SWEET!! WELL WORTH THE COST!!! especially with Zzounds payment plan!

"One of the best dist pedals"
Overall: Just realized I have had this pedal for like 4 yrs now which I find amazing considering I change out pedals every couple months, few hold ground. This one has remained as it is just a great sounding amp-like articulated gain voiced like a JCM 800. Bucking the usual trend I do not use mine to get the "brown EVH thing" but rather a great more Pagey tone on vintage mode 12:00 and 11:00 gain about 3:00. Every time I hit this pedal its tone is always great and just one you are not going to get tired using. Wampler makes great pedals and while I also have a Triple Wreck for massive gain that new Mesa is probably going to bump the Triple. But the Pinnacle Deluxe remains a constant.
Style of Music: heavy fusion mix fm blues to metal, no country, no poppy stuff, not much of a copy artist I enjoy improv and creating new music
