The team's opinion: If you are used to our site, you will probably know that we are very rigorous in the choice of our "Hi-Gain" pedals. Indeed, the gain is good, but when there is too much it sucks. Many manufacturers are having a hard time wanting to offer extreme saturations, which sound good at home but not in a group. The Wampler Sovereign is not one of those honeycombs! Despite a large reserve of gain, this effect pedal provides a modern and very straight Crunch. Something unusual for a Hi-gain oriented product. When you turn up the Drive, the pedal preserves its dynamics, thanks to its “Mids Behavior” knob. This knob, coupled with the Bright/Even switch, will allow you to manage your frequencies as a group in order to pierce the mix in all circumstances! Well thought out and very practical because it also allows you to adapt the pedal with the guitar you are using. We even managed to use it with a Gibson Firebird, that's telling you! Special mention to the Boost switch, which really allows you to go from an Overdrive to a frank Distortion.
The Wampler Sovereign offered here is in average cosmetic condition (missing switch cover) but is perfectly functional. Unfortunately the box is not supplied with.
