6-Month* financing available.
A smaller, stripped-down yet just as powerful version of the Palisades.
Way back in 2014, Earthquaker did something they said they would never do. They made a Tubes Creamer. But Earthquaker didn’t make just any old TS-808 clone - they 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. Earthquaker did their 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 they listened. They made a Mini Mega Ultimate Overdrive.
The Dunes is a condensed take on our highly popular Palisades808-style overdrive. Earthquaker has 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 for the classic 808 sound (Palisades’ Setting 5), 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).
Each and every Dunes is true-bypass, uses silent relay-based switching, and is built one-at-a-time in sandy Akron, Ohio, USA.
- Same Gain, Tone and Level controls, voice and bandwidth settings, and Normal/Bright toggle as the Palisades

Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Dunes Overdrive Guitar Pedal V2:
This pedal is the little brother to the Palisades. I wanted the Tubescreamer sound, but in a regular sized package (unlike the Palisades, which is huge). This pedal has a few of the most popular setting on the Palisades.
What can I say, it does the Tubescreamer sound well, but has plenty of adjustments to touch on other overdrive territories as well. The controls are sensitive, and there is plenty of room for adjustment depending on what sound you want to sculpt.
I got a great deal on this pedal used, but after owning it, I would happily pay full price for it if I needed to replace it.
A word about the company: About a month after buying my pedal, it quit working and there was just a loud "hum" coming from it. I have a huge pedal board, so it took me a bit to narrow it down to it being this pedal. When I contact them, they suggested a couple of things that I try first because the parts rarely go bad, but stated if I was sure that it was the pedal then I was welcome to send it in for repair. I did have to pay shipping to them (I bought the pedal used, so I'm sure it was out of warranty), but they did the repair and shipped it back to me at no cost. The issue ended up being a bad output jack, which they said almost never happens. They fixed it quickly and got it back to me ASAP. They made suggestions on diagnosing the issue without sounding condescending, which I appreciated.
Don't think twice about this pedal or company. Both are top notch!!!
