The Wampler Triple Wreck High Gain Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal was made when Wampler decided that they would take no prisoners and produce a pedal with so much gain it would wipe the floor of anything else.
The Triple Wreck 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, that may very well be - Brian Wampler designed the Triple Wreck to be a butt 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 your own. Believe it or not, even when the gain is backed off, the Triple Wreck pedal still sounds great.
The Wampler Triple Wreck has two distinct voices, Vintage and Modern. The vintage gives you that warmer thump high gain where as the modern allows a little more sparkle to creep in, giving it that more recent, full audio spectrum feel.
Wampler already put it loads of gain, maybe even more than you need, but they still decided to put a boost in it! 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 Crunch/Cream blend control. With the boost on and it dialed round to crunch, 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 cream, 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.
Think about your favorite high gain tone, is it a high gain with the mids scooped out, or is it roll your hand across the knobs to get that in your face, fuzz, attitude melting distortion. What ever you are looking for, the Triple Wreck is probably the only pedal on the market that can satisfy all of those options. This pedal should come with a public health warning.
