Wave Cannon Evolution

The Wave Cannon MKII is the second incarnation of this super distortion pedal. The original Wave Cannon was far more popular than the Caroline team could have ever imagined, after building over 900 pedals they came to the conclusion that the Wave Cannon could have a far more efficient design and added functionality, hence the MKII. The legacy of the original Wave Cannon lives on in the Cannonball and is exclusively available with unique custom paint jobs.

Unique Functionality for Ultimate Tone Shaping

The Wave Cannon MKII has a wide range of controls and tone shaping options. Volume, gain and tone are all standard controls for a distortion pedal but the Wave Cannon MKII also has focus, rumble and a curveball 'havoc' switch. The MKII has a huge amount of gain and volume on tap, this counteracts a problem which occurs in other drives that sound excellent but can't provide the levels of gain required for clean amps. The havoc switch functionality is also available on the Kilobyte in delay form, on the Wave Cannon MKII it does exactly what it says on the tin, causes complete havoc with unpredictable feedback controlled by a momentary latching footswitch.

Cannonball, Haymaker or Wave Cannon MKII?

Trying to decipher which drive or distortion best suits your needs can be tough. The Cannonball and Wave Cannon MKII share very similar functionality and design, if you're looking for a pedal that has a 70s inspired hot drive sound with some unique mods then the Cannonball could be what you're after. The Wave Cannon MKII is very similar to the Cannonball but is overall more distorted, while you can get mid, warm crunch from this pedal it's main function is super hot, super loud drive. The Haymaker is maybe best suited to the more undecided gear lover, 3 modes of drive provide a wide range of gains that can suit various needs, at it's hottest, The Haymaker replicates a light setting on the Wave Cannon MKII or a mid/hot sound on a Cannonball.

Control Knob Functions

  • Volume (Top Left): The volume knob controls the overall output level.
  • Gain (Top Right): The gain knob controls the amount of distortion.
  • Focus (Bottom Left): The focus knob scoops, flattens, or boosts the midrange frequencies.
  • Tone (Bottom Right): The tone knob makes the output brighter or darker.
  • Rumble (Small Middle Switch): The rumble switch increases the amount of bass available in the circuit, and is especially useful at lower gain settings. Flipping this switch may cut your signal momentarily; this is perfectly normal.
  • Havoc (Bottom Right Footswitch): The havoc mode is controlled with a momentary footswitch, hold it down to create unpredictable noises. For Havoc to work, the Wave Cannon has to "see" the guitar as either the very first pedal in your chain, or prefaced by true-bypass, non-buffered effect pedals that are turned off. Tune the craziness with the other controls on the pedal or the controls on your guitar.
  • Bypass (Bottom Left Footswitch): The bypass footswitch is the on/off switch for the pedal.
