We took apart what is required for a great distortion and when we put all the parts back together, we discovered that not only was Brian the King of Dirt, but his new circuit was the King. The Sovereign.
The distortion available from the Sovereign is so versatile you will wonder how so much can be available from one small box. Two gain stages, a mid contour, bright switch and tone control allow you to dial in virtually any sound from modern distortion all the way back to classic OD tones.
With the pedigree this pedal has, we wanted to make sure it stands tall among the other heroes of dirt. We think the Sovereign is the finest in its class, and with a versatility you won’t find on another pedal that sounds as organic as the Sovereign, you’ll agree that this truly is the Sovereign of distortion.
Many pedals offer you the ultimate kind of distortion, but very few can offer you almost anything. Great distortion is hard to find, great distortion is hard to control, so we bring the Sovereign – the monarch of distortion pedals, the only one you would ever need.
As well as having a regular tone control, the Sovereign also includes a Contour control that can give you total control of your EQ – if you like it scooped, it’s there – if you like it with a mid hump, it’s there…
VINTAGE AND MODERN
In the Vintage mode you can chase those classic rock distorted tones that are all about organic power, in the Modern mode the aggression comes forward and your tone can cut through any mix.
BUILT FOR FOREVER
Brian Wampler’s attention to detail and commitment to bringing you the best-sounding & most usable Effects Boxes on the market is nothing new. Those qualities are on full display within the Sovereign. We’re all tone-freaks, and we’re always trying new things, but we hope this pedal finds it’s forever home on your pedalboard, so we built it to last that long.
