Competing with the SLOstortion for the highest gain member of the amp-in-a- box pedal family but voiced very differently and with totally different design goals, the Triple Wreck takes Brian Wampler's careful dedication to getting the tonality of an amp and replicating the sound that makes the amp famous and aims it squarely at creating superb high gain tones inspired by the Mesa-Boogie Rectifier amp series. A powerful Three band EQ ensures that you can dial it in regardless of your amplifier. Any clean amp plus the Triple Wreck equals instant "Brutal" High-Gain! Nonetheless, it is still extremely touch sensitive and responisive in its lower gain knob settings. If that were all the pedal were designed to do, it would be pretty fantastic...Yet Brian worked extremely hard on the Triple Wreck pedal to accomplish two goals: first, provide the trademark Wampler pedals tone and flexibility in achieving the amp-in-a-box function, but second, provide a beyond-brutal, overwhelming, crushing wall of fuzz with the boost mode. Kicking in the boost is not like anything else you've heard.
It takes a high-gain, made-for-metal pedal and turns it into a fire-breathing fuzz monster. The Boost is not separately activated, it requires the pedal to be on in order to do its thing, and it's not a volume boost...
It's a monster. Bringing unreal levels of snarling gain to bear, it can do even the most high-gain modern fuzz tones, but kick the Boost off again and you're back to a great, inspired metal tone.
Gear used: '59 Gibson Les Paul Aged Historic 50th Anniversary Tom Murphy edition DR.Z EZG 50 head and 4x10 Dr.Z cab Shure SM57 Mic I added a little reverb and Delay after recording "dry"...That how I like it...it kind of "spreads out the tone and makes it more ambient to my ears... :)
I believe that every "metal guitarist" need to try try pedal.... It was beyond my expectations for sure...
