Earthquaker Devices Sound Shank

Post by Sauniere » Thu Jul 30, 2009 7:02 pm

Here's a clip I did. Nothing special, but runs through a variety of settings. Don't know it's typical of the circuit, but it really rolls back in to a great overdrive tone with no weird gating. Initial setting is Sustain on full, Timbre on 2:00-3:00 and Balance on 11:00. Towards the middle I roll back the guitar volume by 2 number increments and then down to "1" and back up to "10". Then I adjust the Timbre and Balance knobs. With everything on full, it feeds back on itself and gets a cool exploding amp sound. Gear is a Reeves Custom 6, Tokai Love Rock, pair of Celestion Golds and a Oktava large diaphragm condenser about a foot away.

Yeah, that's with all controls maxed. :zgrin: I'm guessing that's not typical of the original.

Ain't supposed to do that dude, its self-oscillating! How small is the enclosure, are the in and out jacks real close to one another?
It's a little taller than a MXR box but probably around the same width. Maybe I should email Jamie. It's up for auction and I don't want to pawn off a fucked up pedal. :freak:

:hihi:
:marx: :oldlol: I would keep it, but I need to raise funds for the Sola Sound MKII. :drool2: Plus I got this weird problem where I keep comparing everything to the MKII and if it doesn't sound like a MKII I just don't gel with it. :banger:

Apparently it was normal. At least with Jamie's version. He said it was due to the amp getting slammed with all of the controls maxed. Definitely made for a cool "exploding amp" sound!
