OVERVIEW

It's not a boost. It's simply an overdrive.

The Speaker Cranker is an all discrete dirt enhancement device designed to give your amp some grit and a slight boost without drastically changing the character or tone of your set up. It's perfect for those that don't like to fiddle with pesky controls yet want to add a little tube-like breakup or enhance an already over driven amp (or pedal) to give it some extra crunch without over loading the preamp. The single "More" control allows you choose the amount of break up you desire. Just like you would with a tube amp, back it off to thin out the sound and clean it up or crank it up for a fuller sound with a bit of compression.

    Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Speaker Cranker Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    At first I had a hard time trying to grasp this pedal and almost returned it. As a stand-alone dirt pedal, it does the job well enough,I suppose. I found its tone rather blah with P-90s; it sounded more like a solid state amp being pushed a little too hard; blatty and raspy. With humbuckers, tone improves vastly. Some good crunch. Where this pedal hits the home run is when it is paired up with other dirt pedals. EQD does not bill this as a "boost" pedal, but when paired with a fuzz or other overdrive, it really injects some mojo into to your tone. I thought I had some dynamic pedals that could stand on their own; the Speaker Cranker adds another layer of sizzle to their range.

        Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Speaker Cranker Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Don't let the one knob fool you, this pedal is very versatile. If you already have great tone with you rig but just want more "oompf", this is the pedal for you. It adds a little or a lot of dirt depending on where the knob is set. Very transparent with minimal compression, cleans up perfectly upon rolling back the guitar volume. Somehow it adds just the right amount of volume boost to keep up with wherever the knob is set. Bottom line... this is the best dirt pedal I've ever owned.

          Pedal description is totally accurate! This pedal doesn't change your tone. It just beefs it up!
