The Triple Wreck is probably one of the tightest, thickest highest gain distortions you have ever heard. Many people have told Wampler that it sounds more like a 5150® amp to them than a distortion pedal. All Wampler can say is that they designed it to just be an awesome distortion pedal, heavier than everything else, meaner than everything else, and it is.
With a solid 3-band EQ (you can 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 of your own.
There are two distinct voices in the Triple Wreck: Hard and Brutal. The Hard gives you that warmer thump high gain, whereas the Brutal allows a little more sparkle to creep in, giving it that more recent, full audio spectrum feel.
Wampler's already put in loads of gain, maybe more than you need, so let’s stick in a boost switch. What? 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 Boost Contour blend control. With the boost on and it dialed round to counter-clockwise, 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 clockwise, 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, fuzzy, brutal attitude-melting distortion. Whatever 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.

Comments about Wampler Triple Wreck Distortion Pedal:
It's a great overall distortion pedal. I think it's better suited to get a pure metal sound but since you have so much control over your tone it's also great for rock and blues.
It has tons of sustain so it's awesome to play lead, and the boost contour even gets you some great fuzz sound.
The only thing I don't like about the pedal is the control layout. It just doesn't make any sense. You have the boost switch on the right side but the boost knob is on the left. I don't understand why they haven't swaped it with the bypass switch, like on the plexi drive!?!?
