Based on EarthQuaker’s Palisades, their ultimate dig on the “808” style tube screamer, the Dunes is a condensed version with every key ingredient crammed in. The Dunes is a Tube Screamer variant, and as such, gives you that real mid-boost that you’d expect. However it goes a step further, adding a few extra features; The Voice, The Normal/Bright, and the Bandwidth. Voice: Gives you three tonal choices; MOSFET, Silicon and None. These give you different compression when you add gain, really affecting the way your amp is caused to break up, adding just a pinch of extra character.
Normal/Bright: This switch works as you’d expect it to; you have your Normal overdrive, and your Bright overdrive. This is incredibly helpful when you’re running with darker pickups; you can flick to Bright and hear your guitars voicing glisten with more life. If you’re running single coils, keep it on Normal, and you’ll be sweet.
Bandwidth: Something that a traditional Tube Screamer lacks – here, the Dunes gives you the option of adding a lot of low end – great for pulling more energy from those single coils, or you can switch it back for the more traditional midrange boost, without the low end bump.
The Dunes is the “Greatest hits” version of EarthQuaker Devices Palisades, giving you all the option in a more pedalboard friendly unit. Oxygen Music is excited to stock a wide range of EarthQuaker Devices, including the Dunes overdrive pedal.
