Lovely overdrive quitar pedal (and with moog voyager 😉)
DirkPHC, 09.12.2019
Great sound, lovely drive and more (not harsh, only if you want it to sound harsh)
I use the Westwood Eathquaker with Gibson LP, Fender strat, tele and Koch, Hughes & Kettner, Fender amp. Sounds also very good with my Moog synth.

Sounds great

Been using this pedal for some years. A very versatile pedal with simple EQ features and volume. You can quickly change your tone from a transparent boost to a low-gain boost to an amp-like crunch. If you dial the drive to the max you'll get almost a fuzz tone. One of my favorite pedals.

Sehr gut, aaaber...
Rudolf R. P., 14.03.2019
Tolles Ding, mit dem man echt coole Zerrsounds erzeugen kann. Habe es allerdings trotzdem zurückgeschickt, weil man im Vergleich zum EarthQuaker Devices Palisades doch relativ "wenig" Funktion bekommt, daher auch nur 4 Sterne bei den Features. Mich persönlich zumindest haben die vielen Möglichkeiten am Palisades sehr gereizt, insbesondere, da die Preisdifferenz bei schlappen 40¤ lag (habe den Palisades allerdings auch als B-Stock bestellt). Zu Bedienung, Sound und Verarbeitung muss man im Grunde nichts sagen, alles sehr selbsterklärend, supersolider kleine Metallklotz, der toll klingt.
