Wampler Pinnacle II

November 22, 2010

The Wampler Pinnacle II should be at the top of your check-it-out list when searching for a ‘brown sound’ pedal. It is especially good with Fender type amps and does a great job with a Tele and other low output single coiled axes, although I’ve chosen to film it with my Floyd Rose Redmond Model 3 which has an ace low output humbucker in the back. Everybody wants some..!

    Hi. How do you compare the new smaller Pinnacle distortion pedal with the Maudio Crunch box. You see, it is very hard to appreciate the difference in a video.Which one would you buy if you need a very nice distortion pedal .Thanks.

    Good for White Lion tunes as well. Oh man, White Lion. Dare I say, I still like them?

    @guitarralaraja I haven’t tried the California (AMT) so I can’t comment, unfortunately. But I can assure you that this is one mother of a pedal when it comes to soloing. One of the best, IMO.

    great pedal, i was trying to buy a AMT california sound because ive heard that it emulates a mic s well, but now i think i want to buy one of this,, any recommendation for soloing stuff?

    best regards

    @ACmetalfaceDC Yes, my apologies. I should stop making videos with full explanations of the equipment used, for nothing. evhfan1000 is happy now. Why aren’t you?


  15. ACmetalfaceDC on November 22nd, 2010 8:36 am

    @Burgerman666 Or just give him a goddamn answer… Sorry to be rude but you’re being a prick.

  16. evhfan1000 on November 22nd, 2010 9:10 am

    Man I keep trying and trying but i can not get mine to sound as good as yours…..

    @evhfan1000 Go to 5:10 and all will be explained. 🙂

  20. evhfan1000 on November 22nd, 2010 11:26 am

    What kind of amp are you using? I see you said fender type but was just wondering…. Just bought this exact pedal of Craigslist for $100 and love it but it seems too dark maybe its my crate amp. ?

  21. Burgerman666 on November 22nd, 2010 11:32 am

    @evhfan1000: I don’t know as I haven’t tried any of the newer ones. This one is all I have access to.

  22. evhfan1000 on November 22nd, 2010 12:00 pm

    ok how does this one compare to the newer ones? In your opinion.

  23. airdanny791 on November 22nd, 2010 12:16 pm

    ive been tone chasing for the brown sound for years,ive tried countless pedals and when i got this one i slapped myself in the face for not buying it years ago.FUCKING AMAZING!!!perfect for achieving the brown sound and perfect for getting vintage 70’s and 80’s hard rock/metal tones.

  24. Burgerman666 on November 22nd, 2010 12:44 pm

    No, they’re all commie. Just to upset you. 🙂

  25. dorielementary on November 22nd, 2010 1:25 pm

    Do you own any non commie shirts?

Got something to say?
