WAMPLER Ratsbane Distortion Pedal Instruction Manual
WAMPLER Ratsbane Distortion Pedal

The full, dynamic range of this circuit is what makes it the king of distortion pedals

Distortion: Controls the total amount of distortion that is heard. The more you turn it clockwise, the more distorted the sound will become.

Volume: Controls the total output volume of the pedal.

Filter: Controls the high end roll off – Counter-clockwise is maximum high end, clockwise is minimum.

Gain: Three stage gain control, middle is stock, left and right turbocharge the gain stages.

Voice: Two voicing options that subtly alter the compression and clipping of the signal.

Power: This pedal was designed around the usage of a 9V or 18V DC power source and is intended to sound its best at 9V. To avoid damage to the pedal, do not exceed 18V DC, do not use center pin positive adapters, and do not use AC power. Use only a 9V-18V DC power source that is intended for guitar pedals. This pedal draws approximately 2.5mA at 9V and 3.2mA at 18V. NOTE: this pedal cannot be run from a battery, external power supply only.
