A great Wampler pedal
BatuKMan, 04.07.2017
The quality of the pedal, from the paint to the packaging is great, it feels like an expensive pedal.
The switch is dead silent to engage/disengage.

This pedal was made to reconstruct Ola Englund sound, it's a modern metal sound, pretty cool that it doesn't boost the signal when the volume is at 12 o'clock.
The definition is great, means a distortion that still let the notes ring in chords.
The only reason I gave it four stars it's because this is a one sound pedal, it isn't a pedal that can go from slight over-driven to distortion, it's just purely distortion.

Plus, the name and graphics are awesome if you're a fan of Game of Thrones.

I highly recomend this pedal for a modern metal sound and nothing else.

Very good sounding Hard Rock / Metal pedal
Vosster, 15.05.2018
I play Marshall JTM and Orange Amps. Super rock and blues sounds are possible, but for a long time I was also looking for a hard and modern distortion. Finally I came to the Dracarys through Ola Englund and found exactly what I was looking for.

I noticed directly positive that if you set all controls neutral, already a really good sound comes from the pedal. Rich, powerful, modern gain. Not fisselig, but very full and yet aggressive. If you walk down Gain the sound stays clean and audible. No mucking, but you can hear individual notes well. When switching to "Tight" the volume drops a bit and the sound is a bit more compact. I personally like "Open" better. Wide board that's still "tight" enough for me. Find it good that I can scoop the middle with the 3-band EQ even in case of doubt. Other zerrers sometimes only have a "tone" poti.

It is a good idea from Wampler to move the connectors all up. This provides space on the pedalboard.
Since I play almost no deep tuning, or have about a 7-string, I can not say anything about the full metal suitability. For my part, I am very satisfied and can now play old Metallica songs with real Zerre. This was not so appropriate with my JTM ACDC sound. :-)
