Du gros son !
Mike the Ike, 02.02.2020
Wampler réalise une excellente pédale avec la PInnacle V2. Prévue au départ pour approcher le brown sound d'Eddie Van Halen, elle est en fait très à l'aise dans les sons saturés des marshall JCM800. Les réglages d'équalisation sont très précis et sensibles et permettent vraiment de peaufiner son son. La partie boost permet d'avoir une légère saturation lorsqu'elle est utilisée seule et survitamine le son lorsqu'elle est utilisée en conjonction avec la partie saturation.
Les 2 seuls petits bémols que j'émettrais :
- c'est l'impact du bouton Sag situé sur le côté gauche de la pédale : je n'arrive pas à entendre de différence qu'il soit enclenché ou non.
- l'intérêt du switch (gain/boost) pour la partie boost : là aussi, la différence n'est pas audible pour moi quand c'est utilisé en même temps que la disto.
Mais à part ça ces 2 petits détails, ça reste un très bon investissement, plus de stress lors des concerts où la backline ne propose que des amplis fender style HRD et qu'il faut claquer du gros son, la Pinnacle donne la solution.
Modification après qqs mois d'usage : toujours pas remarqué l'intérêt du Sag et le switch gain/boost même à volume répèt ou concert, ne change pas le son. De plus, le son est compressé un peu trop à mon goût, certes dans l'esprit des Marshall Hotrodded des '80s mais je préfère un son un peu plus "ouvert" et j'ai trouvé mon bonheur chez JHS (Sweet Tea)

Pinnacle Deluxe V2
22.03.2017
Für mich einer der flexibelsten Bodentreter/Verzerrer die es momentan gibt. Nicht nur bezüglich der Features sondern auch in Punkto Sound. Das neue Pinnacle Deluxe V2 kann nicht nur *Brown Sound* dank des lang ersehnten 3-Band EQ kann man alle möglichen Sounds aus ihm herausholen; er lässt sich dadurch perfekt auch an jeden Amp anpassen. Die Vorgänger klangen zwar auch sehr gut aber speziell der Contourregler wies, meinem Geschmack nach, nur einen begrenzt sinnvoll nutzbaren Regelbereich auf, welchem sich auch nur schwer mit dem Toneregler gegensteuern ließ. Kurz um, das Vorgänger-Pinnacle neigte m.M.n schnell zum matschen, je nach Amp ließ sich dies nicht gänzlich rausregeln.
Dass Pinnacle V2 hat darüber hinaus eine bessere Boostfunktion- mal abgesehen davon, dass diese sich auch nun separat nutzen lässt.
Hier gibts wirkliche * Deluxe*.
Nur der Modernmode ist wie beim Vorgänger ziemlich höhenlastig und etwas kratzig- für diesen habe ich nicht soviel Verwendung- die restlichen Features und Soundmöglichkeiten sind aber allesamt richtig gut und reichen mir vollkommen aus.
Der Wampler klingt mit Humbuckern und: auch mit Single-Coils! Das können andere Pedale nicht so gut. Er ist dabei, auch bei hohen Verzerrungsgraden, äußerst nebengeräuscharm. Der Preis ist sicher nicht ganz billig- waren die Vorgänger auch nicht und vergleichbare Produkte anderer Hersteller kosten auch nicht arg viel weniger. Ich werd das Teil nicht mehr hergeben. Absolut empfehlenswert nicht nur für Liebhaber, wie mich, des hotgeroddeten Breitwand-Marshallsounds á la Eddie v.H.
Apropos- das EVH gebrandete und beinahe genauso teure MXR 5150 Pedal, kann dem Wampler nicht mal im Ansatz das Wasser reichen. Weder hinsichtlich der Features noch soundtechnisch: das MXR klingt, zumindest für mich, im Vergleich gegen das Pinnacle zu steril und leblos.

IL DISTORSORE DEFINITIVO !!!
Leo Di Leo , 09.07.2019
Venendo da un Friedman Be-OD ed avendo in pedalboard, oltre al mitico Double Trouble della Visual Sound anche il Throttle Box della Mesa Boogie, cercavo un distorsore principale che oltre ad essere dinamico e potente nei soli, fosse caldo e SOPRATUTTO uscisse dal Mix, ed eccolo finalmente trovato, il mitico Pinnacle Deluxe v2. Il pedale, oltre ad avere una qualità costruttiva eccelsa, la cosa che colpisce di più è che SUONA DAVVERO COME LA DISTORSIONE DI UN AMPLIFICATORE, cosa che in uno stompbox è abbastanza difficile sentire, eppoi, rispetto alla prima versione, è davvero versatile, abbiamo:
- Vintage : suono classico e bello del marshall anni 80, per gli amanti del "suono Malmsteen"
- Modern : suono bellissimo, permette una distorsione fluida per i fraseggi veloci, per lo shred è l'ideale perchè non impasta come gli altri, quindi permette di risaltare anche assoli con tecniche ad intervalli di corda (string skipping) o arpeggi (sweep picking).

Grazie anche al suo eq a 3 bande, è adatto a tutti i generi musicali, e grazie al boost indipendente è come avere 2 distorsioni in uno.

SE CERCATE LA DISTORSIONE DAVVERO DEFINITIVA, COMPRATELO, NON VE NE PENTIRETE, VALE TUTTI GLI EURO CHE COSTA
