OVERVIEW

TS808 emulation and more.

With six different clipping voices, five bandwidth settings and two gain channels, you will be hard-pressed to not find a setting that will wipe every mid-boosting overdrive off your board. The clipping voices determine how transparent and open or tight and crunchy the distortion is. They will vary drastically depending on where the gain is set, what channel is active and how much bandwidth is being used. The bandwidth sets the frequency response of the distortion and goes from thin, light and clean through fat heavy and crunchy. It may very well be the single most important control the palisades has and what really sets it apart.

Gain A is a lower gain channel with a wider range of grit that is great for strumming open chords. Gain B is a higher gain channel with a tighter range that is great for palm muting and/or shredding solos. The Palisades also has a foot-switchable volume boost with adjustable level to take it over the top when you want to throw your foot up on the monitor and rip your sweet leadsĀ¦ or maybe just push the front end of you amp a little harder. Not enough? How about a normal/bright switch to mix and match the overall tone to different amps and guitars. Still not enough? OK then, how about a buffer on/off switch to tighten up the tone and make it sparkle when set to ON or warm it up and make it sag when set to OFF.

FEATURES
Controls
Boost: Sets the level of the output boost.
Volume: Sets the output level.
Tone: Brighter clockwise, warmer counter clockwise.
Gain A: Sets the gain for the Channel A (lower gain)
Gain B: Sets the gain for Channel B (higher gain)

Foot Switches
Activate: True bypass switch

Boost: Activates the output level boost

Toggle Switches
Normal/Bright: Normal is a warm full tone, Bright is livelier tone with more chime.
Buffer: Turns the input buffer on or off. ON is a tighter and brighter tone while OFF is a warmer tone with more sag. The buffer is part of the drive circuit & is only available when the Palisades is activated.

Rotary Switches
Bandwidth: This sets the overall tone and gain structure of the Palisades. 1 is the thinnest setting with the least amount of gain and 5 is the fattest setting with the heaviest gain. Everything else is in between. This control has a major effect on all the settings of the Palisades, especially the gain and voice controls.
Voice: This sets the nature of the Palisades distortion by changing the clipping diodes. 1- No diodes: The most open and least distorted. 2- LED clipping: light clipping with a lot of volume. 3- Mosfet clipping: light gain OD with great harmonics. 4- Asymmetrical Silicon clipping: Tighter light gain OD closest to stock 808. 5- Symmetrical silicon clipping: tighter distorted tone. 6- Schottky Diode clipping: Looser fuzzy tone.

SPECIFICATIONS
Dimensions
5.5? x 4.5? x 2.5? with knobs.

Power
A standard 9volt DC power supply intended for musical instruments with a negative center 2.1mm barrel.
NOTE: The first 400 Palisades say 9-18v. Some things changed between the prototype and production phase that no longer allow the palisades to operate correctly at 18v. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. In all honesty, it sounds way better at 9v than 18v anyhow.

    Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Palisades Mega Ultimate Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I've spent years searching for a versatile overdrive pedal that would cover both my light and heavy distortion needs, and this is it. The Palisades pedal not only emulates every imaginable tube screamer modification and upgrade, it comes equipped with a variety of new tones perfect for someone needing to add a pinch of overdrive or a flood of distortion.
    It pairs nicely with my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, and it turns my Mesa Nomad combo into a workable gigging amp.

    This will be the last overdrive pedal you buy. I promise.
