• Four dedicated pedal demonstration installations themed after EarthQuaker’s most notable flagship pedals: Rainbow Machine, Avalanche Run, Space Spiral, and Erupter.


3 of these 4 are variations on delay. I wonder if the Erupter could be a harmonizer/short delay (or harmonizer/glitchy delay). :idk:

I guess this is the beginning of the Erupter story.

So...I did some Web-sleuthing, and it's going to be a Image for $195.

*likely $195 CAD/ $145 USD

look what I found: (probably same source), $195CAD

"The Erupter is the result of over two years’ worth of tone-chasing, tweaking, and experimentation in search of what EarthQuaker president and product designer Jamie Stillman calls “the ultimate classic fuzz tone . . . with a big low end, but not too mushy, a biting top end without being too harsh, and just enough output to politely send a tube amp over the top.”

In developing the Erupter, Stillman “[used] every trick [he] ever learned” to craft a fuzz Device that sounds good with any pickup type anywhere in the effects chain, even before a wah pedal, and without any impedance mismatching. To this end, the Erupter uses a buffered input section, transformer-based pickup simulation, new production 5% ½ watt carbon composition resistors, metallized polyester film capacitors, Sprague and BC electrolytic capacitors, and low-gain, hand-matched NOS silicon transistors to deliver a “well-rounded and defined fuzz tone with just enough pummeling intensity.”

The Erupter’s simple control set stands in stark relief of its rigorous design process. A single control labeled “Bias” adjusts the amount of voltage fed to the NOS silicon transistors. Low “Bias” settings yield a rude, spongy fuzz tone with plenty of sag and a blossoming attack envelope that’s gated without entering “dying battery” territory. As the “Bias” control is increased, additional harmonics stack atop the input signal, producing a stiffer, more complex fuzz tone with a tighter response, increased output, and longer sustain. The Erupter uses a fixed output level and gain setting for the “thickest fuzz possible,” and to “push the full frequency range of the guitar out front when you kick it on.”

I can't see anything on EQD's social media sites, but these are on the Tube. :idk:

Sounds nice but doesn't sound like something I'd want in the one-knob format. :idk:

Re: EQD Erupter

If I wanted that sound I'd just go for a Frazz Dazzler? :idk:

However, I have plans for a board of one knobbers, so this might fit the bill. :drool:

Times are hard for the GASsy man. :lol:

HMMMMMMMMMMMM...

I remain skeptical of one-knobbers, but would like to try this out in person..

These Odyssey + Erupter clips are nice.

Also, an FYI, EQD's Memorial Day sale is about two weeks away, and one of the rare times you can get unused EQD products at a manufacturer-approved discount.

I dig one-knobbers but they're definitely hit or miss. I love my Acapulco Gold but had two others that didn't have quite the same voicing and were meh.

The Gearmanndude riffs in the EQD demo aren't selling me on this.

I think that, if anything, Gearmandude demos have actually turned me away from pedals. :idk:
Like every time he does something related to pitch shifting, octaves, reverb, delay, modulation...overdrive, fuzz, distortion.

Just awful.

I really want to try this. Curious how it will mix with my amp gain. I think it sounds amazing.
