The Wampler Pantheon Overdrive Pedal was inspired by the long-discontinued, long-sought-after BB circuit… and the many now legendary pedals that have followed its ”transparent” path…
The Wampler Pantheon gives you all the unmistakably British break up and tonal nuance found in the best of these revered circuits…. But with some fresh features and modern functionality which are all WAMPLER! A Powerful EQ Section so you tailor your sound for any gig - Includes an active Baxandall bass control so you can match the pedal to any amp/cab and fill up any room, coupled with a beautiful Presence Control gives you just the right amount of Sparkle and Sweetness. With all the controls right up there on the front, not hidden away inside, the Pantheon is all Wampler - a fresh take on shaping this amazing circuit, and instant access to all the different harmonic and overtone structures you could ever want. If you’re looking for a classically inspired drive pedal that mates perfectly with any rig, that plays nice with all your modern tone-tools, can retain all the personality and feel of your playing, AND also delivers everything from sweet and creamy push to cranked British Grind….. Go Pantheon.
MORE OF YOU
The reason the original BB circuit is so legendary, and why so many cool stompboxes have been based on it, has to do with the way it introduces harmonics and grit into the tone you’ve already worked so hard to get, without altering it’s natural sound or drowning the player’s touch in needless extra compression or grit. The Pantheon takes faithful inspiration from this circuit, but keeps the sound entirely yours.
ALWAYS THE RIGHT FIT
The Pantheon gives you enough tonal tweaking options to enhance the rest of your rig without muddying things up. The Baxandall-style active bass control is neutral at noon but boasts an extremely powerful sweep as you move through the range. And in addition to the standard tone control, you’ll also find a presence control for adding just the right amount of top-end chime to fit your different guitars and output devices… live, in the studio, or as part of a larger chain.
NOT JUST ANOTHER CLONE
This type of overdrive circuit is used in some very different ways by different players…. The native sound has passed the test of time, but Brian Wampler has added enough easily accessible gain control to transport you through the decades at the flick of a switch. The 3-way Gain Level switch toggles between the most useful and usable Drive degrees, and the 3-position Overdrive Voice switch selects between hard and soft clipping or a mix of both! That’s every shade of dirt you’ll ever need.
