Wampler - Pinnacle vs. Plextortion vs. Slostortion

The place to be when Bob means something more than just, well... Bob.

I was listening to the demo's on these, and man, they sound cool. Which one to get though? Between the Pinnacle and then Plextortion, i think I like the Pinnacle clips better (although I love JCM800's which the Plextone is supposed to emulate)

But5 man, then they roll out the SLO pedal, and I fuckin want that too.

Eagle, you listening? Which one?

I haven't played through a Slo (only clips) but I have A/B ed the other two and I personally preferred the Pinnacle .
The EQ on both pedals alowes you to get very simmilar tones but the Pinnacle is more amp like IMO .
The SLO sounds very good but I can't comment on the feel and with OD I think this is almost as important .
The deluxe Pinnacle is very good on a pedal board because of the separate gain boost foot switch which for once is the right way around changing the feel for leads and not just the volume .
If I was at a fly gig and playing through a rental amp this pedal and a timefactor and I would be good to go.

I got the Pinnacle. I agree with everything Eagle says on the subject.

Cheers,
