    Product Description

    The Wampler Sovereign Distortion is a versatile beast of a distortion pedal that is unlike the rest of its ilk. The gain is rich and full of harmonic overtones, never sounding or feeling fake and stiff. Surprisingly shapeable and responsive, the non-traditional gain and EQ controls allow you to tune the pedal to suit any setup, and instead of just emphasizing a certain frequency range, they actually change the texture of the gain. With the right settings dialed up, it can nail the elusive sludgy deep sound loved by stoner metal guitarists, along with virtually every other shade of high-gain tone a player can imagine.

    Here's what Wampler say about the Wampler Sovereign Distortion Pedal

    To a discerning and devoted league of tone chasers, Brian Wampler is The King when it comes to organic, convincing and inspiring dirt tones. Thus we thought it only fitting to name Brian’s latest pedal – a simple Distortion pedal – The Sovereign.

    A little presumptuous, you might say? No, we think this is a pedal that lives up to its name. Oh, yes. From cream to ream; thrash to powder puff; hellacious burn to heavenly soothe; The Sovereign will do it for you. Truly.

    You see, Brian was asked by a very convincing and influential client (whom we shall name later) to make, a “simple distortion pedal”. Let’s think for a moment about the amazing “distortion” pedals Brian has already given us: The Plexi series, the SLOstortion, The ubiquitous Pinnacle and others. How could he top those? They’re already regarded as the best in their respective fields.

    Well, folks, for starters, The Sovereign does not allude to be another (with all due respect) A.I.A.B (amp-in-a-box, for the uninitiated). No, no, no. This beast has its own thing going on. It has a mid control that is admittedly borrowed from other great Wampler pedals like The Pinnacle, but this one is refined, less fussy and instantly gratifying over the full range of its sweep. Seriously rich mids are to be found here, able to cut through the din of the bass and drums in an instant. Smooth, creamy highs – think: stainless steel wings on your soaring solos - are a mere flick of a toggle away. The bottom end is tight but with just the right amount of sag to simulate a good tube amp going into orgasmic throes of heat. Yeah, baby.

    We think you will love this pedal.
