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.
An 18vdc power adapter, is included for US customers. NOTE: We now offer a noise filter as an option to the power adapter. The noise filter is included in all international orders in place of the power adapter due to noise in 220vac mains. The noise filter should also be chosen if you intend to use a multi pedal power supply.

I love this pedal!
I'm a sceptic about pedals and effects, preferring the tone of an acoustic harmonica to manipulated sound. However, this pedal lets me dial in the tone I want when I need to be amplified. I can show up to a set with a bag of harmonicas, a mic, and this pedal, and know that I can get a good sound whether the sound person is good or bad. I used to just use the house mic, but sometimes that failed. For live amplified harmonica, this is now an essential part of my kit!
Don’t break your back!
Man! You made a lot of my equipment obsolete. If you want the song and travel light, this is the answer! Through it in your bag, plug into the PA have the fat harp tone, and your vocal mic too! Leave that tube amp at home. Great produce and solution! Thank you!!!
Amazing product and awesome customer support.
Can’t go wrong with lonewolfblues.
Using it with my fender excelsior tube amp now I love this amp because of the pedal better tone adjustment love the spring reverb killer crunch/attack This can make any amp rock
Too soon to tell
Sounds great at home but haven’t been able to use it at a gig yet. Ask me later
