Product Description

This pedal is probably one of the tightest, thickest highest gain distortions you have ever heard... Many people have told us that it sounds more like a 5150 amp to them than a distortion pedal, that may very well be - All we know is that Brian designed it to just to be an ass kicking distortion pedal, heavier than everything else, meaner than everything else, and it is. With a solid three band EQ (total control allowing you to scoop out those mids without it peeking out the lows and highs like so many other pedals) you can emulate some of your favorite high gain tones, but as this pedal is so versatile, you can easily find a distinctive tone all of your own. There is so much control over the tone your distinctive sound is waiting for you. Believe it or not, even when the gain is backed off, this pedal is still useable, it still sounds great. There are two distinct voices in this pedal, Hard and Brutal. The Hard gives you that warmer thump high gain where as the Brutal allows a little more sparkle to creep in, giving it that more recent, full audio spectrum feel. So, we've already put in loads of gain, maybe more than you need, so let's stick in a boost switch. What...? Putting a boost switch on an already high gain pedal may sound crazy but you'll be amazed at how well it works. it gives you two options via the Boost Contour blend control. With the boost on and it dialed round to counter-clockwise, your distortion is multiplied and you have the solo sound you have always wanted. Pinch harmonics are just there, in places you've never found them before. With it dialed round to clockwise, your pedal turns into a fuzzy monster... Tweak the EQ and you can get tone that will remind you of the Smashing Pumpkins right round to some Pink Floyd kind of fuzzy solo tone. It's all there, waiting for you.

I have used Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifiers in the recording studio a number of times and have been a fan of the amp for years. The Wampler Triple Wreck is about as close that a pedal can get to the real deal (of course, depending on what amp, cab and EQ settings may be factored in at the signal chain). But aside from mimicking the Mesa, the pedal itself has some unique tonal qualities that give it that little extra in the tone department.

I've done a side by side comparison between this one and its brothers the Sovereign and the Pinnacle, as well as the Okko Dominator, and the Triple Wreck is one mean beast.

Aesthetically, the new version that i got may look a bit more "cool" compared to the older versions, but i believe the circuitry is no different from that of the original release.

SUMMARY
This is a really awesome sounding pedal that does a nice job of getting very close to a mesa rectifier sound. I call it "destruction in a tin can". It makes the sounds I've been trying to get out of pedals for years and years. However, I got a bad one the first time and that makes me question the quality control at wampler and the durability of the design. Also, the price is very high for a distortion pedal. So -1 star for quality and value combined. But it does sound good, provided you use a battery and not a power supply to power it.

I have a Mesa Mini-rectifier and the amp drive channels sound better than this pedal, but the pedal is close. Put this thing into a fender amp or smaller combo and prepared to be amazed at how big and metal you can sound. Even with a Blues Jr for instance.

PROS
- Awesome distortion sounds. As close to a real rectifier amp as I've heard from a pedal.
- Versatile with a lot of tweakability on the 6 knobs, 1 mini switch, and 2 stomp switches.
- "standard" power supply 9V center positive (like a boss pedal)
- power supply jack located where it should be -- on the rear vertical surface.
- Form factor - not too big, not too small. Doesn't hog the pedal board but not so small you hit other pedals stomping it.
- I like the main pedal + Boost pedal format, and that they put the boost on the right, not the left.

CONS
- Price is extremely high at close to $300 with tax and/or shipping.
- I got a dud on the first unit - raising questions of quality and control and durability of design, and I see I am not the only person who has had quality issues with this pedal.
- I've noticed it sounds a lot cleaner with a battery than it does with a high quality power supply.

I wasn't a fan of distortion pedals until I tried this one. Running a Line 6 DT 25 and Fender Hot Rod Deluxe in a stereo A/B setup. Adds that extra punch I needed and gives me the tone I was looking for when using the two simultaneously.

I use it with my high Marshall and even though I love my Marshall's gain when I want that Mesa sound I stomp on this bad boy and I have that Mesa high gain sound. This is by far the best high gain pedal I have ever played. In brutal mode you have a lovely fuzz sound. I also have Wampler's Velvet fuzz and it too is fantastic.

This pedal completely revolutionized my view of distortion pedals. It is really in the same league as a full tube amp.

I actually own a dual rectifier, and with this pedal plugged, I am able to get an almost perfect replica.

Could not be happier
