EarthQuaker Devices team up with SUNN O))) for limited edition Life distortion

Guaranteed To Ruin Your Tubes

EarthQuaker Devices and noise metal pioneers SUNN O))) have linked up to produce the Life Pedal, a disgusting combination of distortion and octave fuzz with a boost function to obliterate your audience and make your mum scream down the hallway.

Influenced by the signal chain utilised to create the filth-mongering, eardrum demolishing tones heard on the band's latest album Life Metal, the EarthQuaker Devices Life Pedal is designed to be used in tandem with a huge stack of vintage tube amplifiers, ideally at the highest volume possible for the best possible results.

 

 

The octave fuzz circuitry of the effect is inspired by vintage Shin-Ei FY2 and FY6 units of days gone by, which lead into a ProCo Rat-voiced LM308 chip distortion with a three-way clipping switch (op Amp, Asymmetric and Symmetric). The second stage of the EQD Life Pedal functions as a pure clean boost, allowing users to kick the preamp tubes of their preferred amplifier into glorious, overtone drenched feedback. 

 

The EarthQuaker Devices x SUNN O))) Life Pedal is limited to a mere 1000 units, and is only available via the official SUNN O))) Reverb Shop. Check it out here.

 

EarthQuaker Devices are distributed in Australia via Yamaha.
