The Brown Sound is Just the Beginning

The Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe V2 overdrive pedal is a vastly updated design that starts with the original Pinnacle's "brown sound" character and adds a huge level of versatility and convenient features. The V2 boasts a 3-band EQ for dialing into your amplifier rig. The independent Boost function adds a screamer-style punch to your guitar tone. The Modern/Vintage toggle switch shapes the character of your tone. The Boost/Gain toggle switch restructures the pedal's gain-staging to elevate you above the mix. And the side-mounted sag control allows you to determine how tight the pedal's bottom end feels. The Pinnacle Deluxe V2 may be the most versatile British amp-in-a-box out there.

Legendary Pinnacle tone

Brian Wampler is often regarded as the expert on amp-in-a-box overdrive and distortion pedals. His original Pinnacle overdrive is one of his most popular designs here at Sweetwater for the way it effortlessly nails the famous cranked British amp "brown sound." The Pinnacle Deluxe V2 boasts that same touch-sensitive sound and playing experience with features that allow you to find your own version of that iconic electric guitar tone.

A wide variety of voicing options

The juiced sounds of a classic British amplifier stack is where the Pinnacle Deluxe V2 overdrive pedal begins. This V2 version separates itself from previous designs with a powerful 3-band EQ. These controls have a massive impact on the sonic personality and feel of this pedal. And the onboard Modern/Vintage toggle switch further specifies the pedal's character. Add to that a Gain knob that sounds fantastic across the range from classic rock to modern metal, and you have one of the most versatile amp-in-a-box overdrive pedals on the market.

Independent Boost function

Stomp on the Boost footswitch, and imbue the Pinnacle Deluxe V2's overdriven tone with screamer-style gain and tightness. Then dial in the Boost knob to find the perfect amount of cut and sustain. Need even more gain? Flicking the Boost/Gain toggle switch restructures the Pinnacle Deluxe V2's gain-staging a bit to help you punch above the mix. Best of all, the Boost function is completely independent of the pedal's main circuit. It's like putting a separate "lime green" booster pedal in front of your overdrive!

Low-profile Sag switch

The very nature of the Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe V2 overdrive pedal is one of a red-lined amplifier stack that's giving you everything it's got. Just like the real thing, the Pinnacle Deluxe V2's low end will compress gloriously the harder you push it. While this is a great sound, some players asked Wampler to add an option to tighten up this low-end response for more modern tones. Wampler obliged and added the low-profile Sag switch to the side of the unit. No matter what response or driven British amp tone you're looking for, it's in the Pinnacle Deluxe V2.

2 Great Pedals in One!

I have been playing for over 30 years. I have 4 pedal boards, 1 for bass guitar, 1 for acoustic guitar and 2 for electric guitars. My larger, main board, has 4 Wampler dirt pedals on it and the Faux Tape Echo. My wife bought me the Pinnacle Deluxe V2 for Christmas and I love it (and her)! I removed my Wampler Clarksdale to put the Pinnacle on this board. The Clarksdale was moved to my other board with the Velvet Fuzz. As for the Pinnacle, it sounds great with any guitar or amp I've run it through so far. In my opinion, no one does dirt better than Wampler. The Pinnacle Deluxe V2 is really 2 great sounding pedals in one. The "Boost" sounds great on its own. The number of sounds that one can dial in on this pedal are fantastic. It works well with single coils or humbuckers. It also plays well with other pedals. I have run my Tumnus into it and I have run it into my Euphoria. So many possibilities and well worth the cost.
