EarthQuaker Devices Palisades Overdrive

EarthQuaker Devices Palisades Overdrive

With six different clipping voices, five bandwidth settings and two gain channels, you will be hard-pressed to not find a setting that will wipe every mid-boosting overdrive off your board. The clipping voices determine how transparent and open or tight and crunchy the distortion is. They will vary drastically depending on where the gain is set, what channel is active and how much bandwidth is being used. The bandwidth sets the frequency response of the distortion and goes from thin, light and clean through fat heavy and crunchy. It may very well be the single most important control the palisades has and what really sets it apart.

Gain A is a lower gain channel with a wider range of grit that is great for strumming open chords. Gain B is a higher gain channel with a tighter range that is great for palm muting and/or shredding solos. The Palisades also has a foot-switchable volume boost with adjustable level to take it over the top when you want to throw your foot up on the monitor and rip your sweet leads… or maybe just push the front end of you amp a little harder. Not enough? How about a normal/bright switch to mix and match the overall tone to different amps and guitars. Still not enough? OK then, how about a buffer on/off switch to tighten up the tone and make it sparkle when set to ON or warm it up and make it sag when set to OFF.

Palisades Mega Ultimate Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

  • Dimensions
  • 5.5″ x 4.5″ x 2.5″ with knobs.
  • Power
  • A standard 9volt DC power supply intended for musical instruments with a negative center 2.1mm barrel.
  • NOTE: The first 400 Palisades say 9-18v. Some things changed between the prototype and production phase that no longer allow the palisades to operate correctly at 18v. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. In all honesty, it sounds way better at 9v than 18v anyhow.
