EarthQuaker Devices delivers ground-shaking updates to its best-selling pedals

EarthQuaker Devices has unveiled new updates to four of its top-selling pedals. Each updated pedal now features high-quality soft-touch relay switching and enhanced long-term durability. A brand-new Flexi Switch allows them to operate in traditional latching or momentary mode and is ideal for creating 'stutter' sound effects. These updates improve four pedals that are already highly successful and will be sure to reinforce their enduring popularity.

The pedals to receive the updates are the Arpanoid, the Grand Orbiter, the Palisades, and The Warden. So, what is it that makes these pedals best-selling units for EarthQuaker Devices?

The Warden V2 Optical Compressor offers studio-grade compression. The optical design gives more character than traditional VCA or FET-based designs. The 6 controls provide a far greater degree of control than the average guitar compression pedal, making this a very versatile unit. It can deliver every compression sound available from sparkly studio tones through to squashed dynamic sounds.

The Arpanoid V2 Polyphonic Pitch Arpeggiator is the second version of the first-ever arpeggiator for guitar in a pedal format. It is an avant-garde device that can add some exciting pitches to your sound. The Arpanoid can operate on both single notes and chords in major and minor keys. This is a unit that will give you endless room for experimentation and provide real inspiration for your music-making.

The Grand Orbiter V3 Phaser is a 4 Stage OTA-Based Phaser Pedal. Like the rest of EarthQuaker Devices units, it provides great flexibility in its tonal output and offers fine-control over every aspect of your modulated sound. It features a 3-way mode switch to set the overall level of phase and a toggle switch to engage a separate vibrato effect.

The Palisades V2 Dual Overdrive and Boost pedal is another highly versatile pedal that offers two gain channels and an additional clean boost. It is based on the Ibanez TS range of pedals but includes a greatly enhanced set of features for shaping both your tone and overdrive character with its Bandwidth and Mode dials. The Palisades V2 will give a radical update to your current setup and can achieve a wide range of overdriven sounds from inside a very compact unit.

EarthQuaker Devices' pedals are all hand-made in the USA by a small team of enthusiastic employees. They have a boutique quality to their business and a loyal fan-base of pedal users. It is refreshing to see companies producing hand-made products rather than moving to mass-production methods. It is partly for this reason that they can offer such high build-standards and maintain a personal feel to their customer relations. Now you can get the latest pedal updates from this small company and see what all the fuss is about.
