Amazing distortion / OD
Vlaho, 05.03.2016
Very good pedal.

From start, easy to use with tonal options to suite your needs as it can adept various amps. I run this pappy in front of DT25 (clean and british crunch) and old Marshall AVT50.

Wampler states that this is distortion pedal, but I found it to be much more, covering OD sounds to full blown distortion sounds, as expected.

Very well build, with firm knobs it will very well adapt to any amp because of three tonal knobs (mid, tone and bright/even switch).

This is not an amp in a box approach, but something you put in front of a clean amp. If used on a clean channel you will get distortion sounds from Satriani to Pantera, but put in front of a crunch amp with modest gain, man it blowed me away. It emphasis amps characteristic not coloring sound so much, but you can eq with its own controls as well.

Very quiet pedal, suitable for studio recording and plays well with boost and compressor pedals.

Battery compartment is not easy to reach, but if you're using it on pedal board with power supply, you don't have to worry.
