Sometimes you need extreme gain, sometimes you need mild overdrive...this pedal does that with an awesome "Brown Sound"! It has an extremely tweakable EQ - from scooped mids to tons of warm mids, all with the turn of 2 knobs.

This pedal has 4 knobs -- two separate tone controls that act as a sort of parametric EQ, gain and volume. It also has a 'bright' switch that adds a ton of variety and is very handy when playing a dark sounding amp, as well as another toggle switch that will give you high gain "Brown Sound" tones.

Pinnacle v. Pinnacle Deluxe

The Pinnacle and Pinnacle Deluxe share the same great tone. The difference comes in the form of a couple special features found on the Deluxe version that make it more involved for us to make, but which add some extra versatility for you. While the standard Pinnacle has a toggle switch to control its Gain Boost, the Pinnacle Deluxe has that same functionality on a foot switch, so you can kick it in without having to bend down in the middle of a song. The only other difference is that the Pinnacle Deluxe has an additional, internal volume adjustment (just in case you need to go to "11" on the output volume). Because of the added switch, the Pinnacle Deluxe is a little bit larger than the standard Pinnacle, something to keep in mind if you're running a packed pedal board.

Which Pinnacle is right for you isn't a question of tone, because they both nail that coveted "Brown Sound". It just comes down to whether you need the special features found on the Pinnacle Deluxe, or prefer the smaller footprint of the standard Pinnacle.

Zeke Clark, Edward Van Halen's longtime renowned guitar tech played through a Pinnacle and this is what he had to say:
"I've played tons of pedals that promised that "Brown Sound"... this pedal NAILS it better than anything I've ever heard or played."
- Zeke Clark, former tech for Eddie Van Halen

    Comments about Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This does way more than hitting excellent, spot on Van Halen sounds. It's very adjustable and is a killer when driving my Rat. Takes it to a new level but in a sweet way. Best pedal I've bought in decades. It'll never leave my pedalboard.

    Tons of Tone

    By gary burns

    Comments about Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I was impressed with this pedal at first note. It has a really warm sound and is very versatile. I originally bought the Pinnacle, but went with the deluxe instead because having the boost as a foot switch option was a big plus for live gigs.

    EVH and and then some...

    By Rich Cox

    from UT

    Comments about Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    When I received the Pinnacle Deluxe I was pretty excited. I hooked it up side by side with my Lovepedal Superlead and I have to say that first impression is it sounded mechanical and not musical not as thick and heavy sounding as the Superlead. I had decided to send it back that night after 3 hours of tweaking and messing around with Pinnacle and Superlead and in my mind the Superlead was the winner. Next day I thought OK maybe it?s my stuff?LP Antique Classic w/stock pups, JCM800 slightly tweaked, 1960A w/Heritage Greenbacks. The Superlead gave a pretty decent sound bedroom and band levels. So I changed a setting on the amp mainly just the bass up a notch. Now it is full and thick and very musical more so than the Superlead now. I?m keeping the Superlead but, the Pinnacle is way more versatile with great string separation. Now it has a permanent spot on my board. It can do a lot more than EVH. If you?re looking for EVH sound it gets you very close but it can go from sweet blues to mean metal and all the stuff between also.
