Wampler Sovereign Distortion Pedal

Become the king or queen of dirt with Sovereign, a fully tweakable distortion with two gain stages, mid contour and switches for brightness and tone control.

To many people, pedals such as the Euphoria and Plexi-Drive projected Brian Wampler well on the way to be the king of dirt. This inspired him to take that crown and sit it on the head of distortion to finalize the deal.

We took apart what is required for a great distortion and when we put all the parts back together, we discovered that not only was Brian the King of Dirt, but his circuit was the King. The Sovereign.

The distortion available from the Sovereign is so versatile you will wonder how so much can be available from one small box. Two gain stages, a mid contour, bright switch and tone control allow you to dial in virtually any sound from modern distortion all the way back to classic OD tones.

With the pedigree this pedal has, we wanted to make sure it stands tall among the other heroes of dirt. We think the Sovereign is the finest in its class, and with a versatility you won't find on another pedal that sounds as organic as the Sovereign, you'll agree that this truly is the Sovereign of distortion.

I bought this pedal by recommendation of a friend and of Wampler Employee. This pedal is awesome. Goes from a nice medium gain for 70’s rock and goes to Metal tones. It is very clear on chords and notes. This is one of the best Distortion pedal out.
