A modern take on the old-school opitcal vibe circuit pedal.

A souped-up take on the classic optical vibe circuit, EarthQuaker Devices' The Depths creates a lush, phasing pulse which creates a three-dimensional swirling sound that lives up to its name. This pedal has been optimized to work well with all types of instruments and pickup types. Its Voice and Throb controls help you achieve sounds from thin and subtle to warm and deep and everything in between. The Intensity and Rate help you go from a smooth, ultra-slow warble all the way to speedy, sharp bursts, taking the classic vibe sounds to a whole new level. The Level knob will allow you to boost the signal well above unity to make up for any perceived volume loss commonly found in vibe pedals. The Depths can be powered by 9V for warmer tones or up to 18V for a stiffer tone with more headroom and sparkle.

  • Voice control to tailor The Depths to every set up and allow operation anywhere
  • in the signal chain and on a variety of instruments.
  • Control over the low end throb
  • Classic photocell construction
  • Adjustable volume to boost or cut the signal
  • 9-18V operation
  • Small footprint, measures 4 5/8″ x 2 1/2″ x 2.25″
  • Top mounted jacks
  • All analog, true-bypass
  • Handmade one at a time in Akron, Ohio.

Comments about EarthQuaker Devices The Depths Optical Vibe Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

Absolutely great pedal, but ridiculously LOOOONG shipping time. From the time I ordered this item to the time I received it was a 2 week wait! I was told it would take between 4 - 5 days, at a maximum. After a week had gone by, I called in to see what the status was on this order and was told that it should arrive "probably by tomorrow". Well, that "tomorrow" took another week to arrive. Not sure if I would buy it again if I needed it right away without paying extra clams for expedited shipping! My "bottom line" opinion is purely based on the shipping experience.
