Nashville, TN (July 12, 2012) – EarthQuaker Devices introduce 3 new pedals at Summer NAMM 2012.

Hoof Reaper Octave Fuzz Spectacular
The Hoof Reaper features our popular Hoof and Tone Reaper fuzz pedals in one handy enclosure with the added bonus of an old school analog octave up. It was originally released as a special limited run item back in 2010 and demand was so high that we decided to reintroduce it back into our line on a semipermanent basis. This device will be manufactured in limited quantities.

Release Date: TBA 2012
Street Price: $295.00


Crimson Drive Germanium Overdrive
The Crimson Drive was one of the first pedals we released back in 2006. It was highly regarded by the few who picked one up but was eventually cut due to a lack of quality germanium transistors. We recently uncovered a massive batch of excellent NOS black glass germanium transistors that fit the bill and decided to bring the Crimson drive back in all it’s gritty, harmonic-rich glory. The circuit is exactly the same as it was with the addition of an often requested tone control for fine tuning. This device will also be released in limited runs.

Release Date: TBA

Street Price: $145.00





Talons High Gain Overdrive
The Talons Overdrive is a project we have been working on for a long time at EQD. After nearly a year of variations and fine tuning we have finally nailed it. It very well may be the best and most versatile go-to overdrive we have ever heard! It features a full active tone stack, a presence control for sculpting the top end and more gain than one should ever need from an overdrive in a very compact format. Unlike all our other overdrives, the Talons was not designed to emulate any specific sound or era. It can be glassy and open, scooped and chunky, gritty and wild, light and airy, drunk and unhinged... We will not disappoint you, there is something for everyone in this box!

Release Date: September 2012

Street Price: $195.00

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
