Way back in 2014, we did something we said we would never do. We made a Tube Sreamer. But we didn’t make just any old TS-808 clone - we made the Palisades™, the end-all, be-all of transparent mid-boosting overdrives. A Mega Ultimate Overdrive, if you will.
Lurking inside that massive bedazzled enclosure was every conceivable 808 mod under the sun. And a second gain channel. And a clean boost. We did our rightful duty to you, the musician, by offering you true Freedom of Choice to mix and match clipping diodes and capacitors as you see fit in order to develop your own unique overdriven voice. And you did. All except those few spuds in the back who said to us, “But EarthQuaker Devices, we want Freedom from Choice!” And so we listened. We made a Mini Mega Ultimate Overdrive.
The Dunes™ is a condensed take on our highly popular Palisades “808-style” overdrive. We’ve stripped away all the glitz and glamour of the original Palisades, leaving only the bare essentials required for a rippin’ mid-boosting transparent overdrive. It has all the great tone of the grown-up Palisades but with a simplified interface and a smaller footprint!
The Dunes features the same Gain, Tone and Level controls as the Palisades, along with our favorite voice and bandwidth settings, as well as the “Normal / Bright” toggle.
The selectable clipping Voices are: “MOSFET” for a tight crunchy sound (Palisades’ Setting 3); “Silicon” Asymmetrical clipping for tighter light gain OD closest to the classic 808 sound (Palisades’ Setting 4), and “None,” which goes from clean boost to gritty, pure op-amp distortion with a massive volume boost (Palisades’ Setting 1).
The two Bandwidth settings are “stock” for the classic tone (Palisades’ Setting 3) and “full range” for more low end (Palisades’ Setting 5).
Boost. Drive. Fuzz. Not necessarily in that order. Designed in collaboration with Resonant Electronic™, Brothers™ is built upon two independent JFET / IC analog channels comprising a total of six unique boost, drive, or fuzz circuits in one small enclosure. The pedal can be routed in thirty-three distinct ways, including...
Take flight and discover new worlds of tone. Condor™ is an analog multi-effect that allows sophisticated control over a wide range of effects including EQ, overdrive, boost, tremolo and filter tones. The pedal has a powerful parametric mids control that ranges from 150Hz to 4kHz along with a three separate...
Digital World. Dark Heart. Dark World™ is the first fully digital offering from Chase Bliss Audio; a unique dual channel reverb that we made with a little help from our friends. Cooper FX is responsible for the “Dark” channel; a collaborative effort influenced partly by their Generation Loss and Outward...
Public bathing never felt so good. Thermae™ represents a radically new approach to analog delay and harmonization. The pedal digitally manipulates the analog signal path created by 4 re-issued versions of the legendary MN3005 bucket-brigade delay chips. This creates the ability to change delay time in musically interesting intervals which...
