Wampler’s Phenom Distortion pedal is a no-frills addition to the Collective Series, providing guitarists with searing high-gain tones for a wallet-friendly price! This little stompbox boasts a massive range of tonal possibilities, courtesy of the dual-voice design that allows you to switch between the smooth sounds of Classic mode and the cutting bite of Bright mode. A full 3-band EQ makes it a breeze to sculpt the Phenom’s response, while the gain knob takes you from a light bark all the way to a screaming saturation-drenched roar. Premium components, a masterful build quality, and a myriad of high-octane dirt tones at a budget price: the Phenom is all but guaranteed to become a modern Wampler classic!
Two distinct tonal voices
The Phenom’s split personality is unlocked with the flip of a 2-way switch, taking you between Classic mode and Bright mode for incredible tonal flexibility.
- Classic mode: If you’re after silky-smooth breakup with a focused bottom end, Classic mode will be your setting of choice. This mode is particularly sensitive to pickup choices, producing a clear and dynamic saturation when played through a clean amp with single coils, while humbuckers unlock a high-octane saturation that screams when pushed through an amp on the edge of breakup.
- Bright mode: As the name suggest, bright mode kicks up the highs and sounds clear, glassy, and articulate. This mode is perfect for cutting through a mix, allowing even the most complex of lines to shine and shimmer with clarity.
- Dual-voiced distortion design provides enhanced sonic flexibility
- Classic mode provides a round, punchy distortion with exceptional dynamic control
- Bright mode kicks up the highs for a glassy sound packed with lively overtones
- Extremely responsive to different pickup designs
- 3-band EQ to carve out your sonic signature
- Top mount jacks for easy integration into your pedalboard
- Premium components and build quality
