The Alpha Wolf is a multi-effect pedal that features three of Lone Wolf's classic circuits, the Harp Attack, Harp Reverb, and Harp Tone+. With this pedal, regardless of using a back-lined amp with the 1/4" output or going straight into a PA with the XLR output, a player can be confident he or she will be able to dial in not just a good tone, but a great tone. The source of the tone this pedal produces is derived from a subminiature pentode vacuum tube, the pentode is the same type of tube used in the power section of amplifiers. The reverb section is one of the truest reverbs ever produced in a pedal, in a lot of ways it sounds better than a spring reverb tank.
Please be aware that the subminiature tube, like all tubes, can be microphonic and make a ringing noise when the bypass buttons are hit, any noise should be of low volume and subside quickly. Due to the design being a multi-effect the bypass switches are not a true bypass and are in the circuit which can lead to a light pop when a bypass switch is engaged. Because this pedal is intended to be an "always on" pedal, this issue is not a factor when performing.
Harp Attack: Turn the DRIVE clockwise for more distortion; note that increasing DRIVE also increases volume, so you will need to turn VOLUME down to balance the output. For extra crunch set the CLIP switch to the up position. When the Harp Attack function is in bypass the Volume and Drive are bypassed. Harp Reverb: The REVERB sets the level of the effect and the SPRING TONE sets the tone of the effect from a bassy spring tone to a true tinny tone. Harp Tone+: The tone circuit is always active and adds up to 20db of gain in BASS or TREBLE.

Sounds amazing, love this oedal
Fantastic. I play harmonica, as well as guitar and recently wanted to transition to an amp less set up on stage. I used this Lone Wolf Alpha Wolf pedal as my virtual amp on a pedal. Truthfully it sounds better than my amp did and o have less trouble getting big volume with no feedback. Sounds amazing. Great product, great company, fast shipping. Super pleased!
Love this little box!
As other reviewers have said, this pedal sounds great, and I don't have to lug a heavy amp around anymore. It's versatile as well--I tweak all the knobs a little for each song our band does. And the built-in DI box is an added convenience too. Now if i could just improve my technique as quickly and simply!
Sound and tone is awesome both through a kalimazoo 2 to pa or to pa alone and so portable
The search is over!
Love the grit this adds to my harp tone!

Hi Ron, Over the days during which this transaction occurred, I had a stroke. My sister and bro-in-law were briefly and sadly in charge of my affairs. Thinking after a seriously really bad prognosis from my neurosurgeon, they took my life apart. Lost the awesome house I was renting, and my very low cost shop to store my wine tour vehicle. I’m not sure if I’ll ever overcome the anger- this wasn’t done in a malicious way- just their own stupidity, and lack of business acumen- sadly. I’m doing well and driving wine tours again, but still looking for my Alpha Wolf. Order payment was processed on the day of my stroke: September 8th. Thanks for your help. Cheers ~ JZ 805-689-7898
