The Wampler Pantheon is an overdrive voiced after the ultra-transparent vintage Marshall Blues Breaker with a series of tone sculpting and cab-matching features that allow optimization for any amp or ear, including Bass/Treble knobs, a presence control, a 3-way Gain Level switch and a 3-position Overdrive Voice switch lets you choose between hard and soft clipping or a mix of both. The Dual Pantheon Deluxe doubles down on the original, including stereo and MIDI I/O and some other useful features.
While the first channel is an exact replica of the original circuit, the second one offers an updated, boutique take on it, although sharing the same controls (including the dedicated footswitch). The order of the channels can be configured via the Order toggle switch on the top.
Also, each channel maintains a 3-way gain level and 3-way voicing switches on the sides, while a global presence control allows to add an extra layer of sheen to the final tone.

PANTHEON DELUXE DUAL OVERDRIVE
The now legendary Wampler Pantheon provided a unique interpretation of the classic “Blues Breaker” style stomp box, by capturing all the tonal nuance of the original, but with added flexibility and style. In doing so, it found its way onto thousands of pedalboards across the world. Enter the new Pantheon Deluxe – a dual overdrive pedal that takes this evolution several steps further by offering a flexible design with two completely independent Pantheon circuits, one voiced as a classic blues breaker and one with a more modern boutique sound. This palace of tone delivers a staggering 200 combinations of gain settings, featuring dual Inputs and Outputs, and for the first time ever, Wampler have added MIDI channel switching to one of their gain pedals.
The Pantheon Deluxe lets you dial in two channels of organic creamy gain, gritty overdrive, or heavy distortion while retaining Wampler’s famous ease of use and flexibility. Channel 1 delivers a classic Blues Breaker tone, Channel 2 is a recreation of the original Pantheon, a similar circuit to the Blues Breaker but with a modern boutique feel. Independent side mounted Voicing and Gain Level switches allow you to further shape your tone to perfection.
