The Year in Gear 2018

EarthQuaker Devices Aqueduct
As EQD explored ever-deeper tone manipulation machines in recent years, many of the company’s stomps became quite complex. But the Aqueduct walks the fine line between complexity (which mostly manifests itself in sonic richness) and a relatively streamlined control set that relies on simple rate and depth controls, as well as eight varied modes that can stretch the bounds of conventional vibrato tones. A pleasure to explore, it rewards with immersive sonic colors.
