Wampler has teamed up with Andy Wood to create the ultimate distortion/overdrive combination. Combining reworked and refined versions of the Pinnacle and the Tumnus and adding in an extremely powerful noise gate. The Gearbox contains two of our best loved drive circuits: the Tumnus and the Pinnacle. Andy named this pedal the Gearbox as it was designed to be the driving force behind your sound.
Andy Wood is recognized as one of this generation’s most influential guitarists: he spent most of his childhood playing and competing in festivals and touring the bluegrass circuit with his cousin and grandfather; by the age of 22 he demonstrated his outstanding electric guitar skills being crowned champion of Guitar Center’s “Guitarmageddon” competition. Andy has toured professionally with a wide range of acts including Rascal Flatts, Gary Allan, Locash, Scott Stapp, and Sebastian Bach. Andy Wood has totally blurred the lines of preconceived genres with his most recent album, “Junktown”, a masterpiece of different guitar styles and progressive southern inspired fusion. Junktown was recorded with a prototype of what is now the Wampler Gearbox Andy Wood Signature Overdrive.

A top-switchable stacking order control, dual inputs and outputs, a unique side-chained noise gate, and it looks SO good - check out those gorgeous knobs and the deep bronze-orange color.... luscious!
Channel 1 (based on the legendary Tumnus) is a staple in any rig, you know what it does - that lovely K-drive type thing! It's breathtaking to stack it with another pedal to help push or shape the total amount of gain, use it as a stand-alone overdrive, or as a slightly dirty boost, to push the front end of your amp over the edge.
Channel 2 (Based on the Pinnacle, one of my personal favorites) while traditionally known as being "the brown sound" it's actually capable of so much more! The three band EQ dials in a variety of tones while the *Side-Chained* noise gate keeps the clarity on point. Stack both channels together for tonal bliss - "warm, yet brutal grunt; delicate and controllable harmonic overtones; and beautifully defined distortion that cuts through the mix" as Premier Guitar put it.
The Order switch lets you select which pedal comes first in the signal chain. For more control and options, connect both sets of inputs and outputs to an external switcher to mix or match in parallel or series, or even use this as an effects loop and add additional pedals between the two channels!
