Wilson Effects World War Distortion


What makes the World War Distortion pedal unique is not only can you achieve heavy amp-like distortion it can also be dialed back and used as an overdrive via some unique controls that have been added to the circuit. Instead of having an external gain control the World War has an internal trimmer that comes set to maximum gain. You can dial this back if you want to but the unique saturation control allows you to control the saturation of the circuit from the exterior.

The World War also boasts a unique set of clipping controls like no other pedal on the market (that we know of). The Style switch gives you the option of quite a few different clipping options within the circuit. If the style switch is in the up position you activate the blend knob and H/S switch. This allows you to, depending on the position of the H/S switch to blend the hard and soft clipping sections of the circuit together for a wide array of distortion tones. When the Style switch is in the down position this enables the Clip 1 and Clip 2 switches and disables the Blend knob and H/S switch allowing you to swap out diodes within the circuit for even more clipping options.

So whether you are into huge amp-like tones, low end or even a more scooped distortion tone the World War has you covered.

The world War is powered by a 9vdc 2.1mm center negative power supply or a high quality 9v battery. The pedal is true bypass and handmade in Guilford, Indiana.

The World War comes with the standard one-year warranty on parts and labor.
