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.

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 Pantheon Overdrive. 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.

  1. Zack Rosenberg

    I heard about the Bluesbreaker and King of Tone for a long time and always wondered what the hype was about. Knowing how amazing every Wampler overdrive is, I HAD to check this one out! The 3-band EQ, 3 voices, and 3 gain levels can get nearly every tone imaginable! Brian’s skills really show with the ability to get amazing tones with the smallest adjustment to only 1 knob or toggle switch. It’s amazing when stacked with a Tumnus.

    It was my go-to for lead tones, then I let a friend borrow it for a while, but missed it so much that it kicked another OD off my board after getting the Terraform to earn a permanent spot on my board.

  2. Jamie M Harrison

    I really enjoy this pedal! It’s my main lead on my Wampler board and works on a variety of different amps. I have a boutique amp from a company call Mahalo and the amp is particularly dark which is unique…dare i say strange but this pedal has a lot of brightness/clarity to sound fantastic on this amp. The pedal also sounds wonderful on my 3 vintage 1968 Fenders which are very bright.

    Lots of gain, lots of clarity, tonal choices, rock and roll!

  3. Michael Hecker

    Incredible Pedal. I have owned 3 KoT’s and they don’t come close to this. The versatility is insane. Although I use it for light drive, it can really do anything from glassy edge of breakup to classic rock.

  4. Declan

    Absolute masterpiece of a pedal. The variety of tones from this is astonishing. I mainly use it for low gain edge of breakup, which it absolutely excels at, but it can go all the way to full on distortion. The best part of this pedal is that it doesn’t colour your tone at all, unless you want it to. Set the EQ to match your amp, turn up the gain a little and pure tone. The touch sensitivity is another area this pedal amazes in. Brian and the team knocked it out of the park with this one.

  5. Farid

    This pedal is incredible. I currently use it as amedium-gain OD but it sounds amazing on all gain settings, all the way down to a boost. My personal favorite BB style OD and one of the staples on my board.

  6. Christian Avila

    This is my “desert island pedal.” It is so versatile, going from subtle to in your face rock and roll with the flick of a switch. The active eq also helps give it a permanent place on my board. Built like a tank and reliable i dont think twice about gigging with this. And if i did happen to have an issue i know the folks over at wampler would take care of me, and thats worth something.
