Earthquaker Devices' Westwood is a touch sensitive translucent overdrive manipulator as clean and pure as the breeze which blows through a grove of Douglas Fir trees, and as hot as a damn fine cup of coffee. This mild-mannered light- to medium-gain overdrive with active EQ controls will still knock the socks right off your trusty low-wattage combo amp, pushing it into anything from cutting, edge-of-breakup rhythm tones, all the way to articulate, singing lead tones stacked high with pleasing even-order harmonics and sweet, sweet sustain.
The EarthQuaker Westwood features a simple, four-knob design that provides the usual Level and Drive controls plus separate Bass and Treble EQ controls. The Westwood differs from most other transparent boost pedals by providing more gain boost that pushes overdrive to the edge of distortion—and including an active EQ section that delivers up to 20dB of boost or cut to frequencies around 2kHz (treble) and 80Hz (bass). The pots for bass and treble knobs have center-detents at 0dB to make it easy to dial in true transparent tone. The circuit has an all-analog signal path, and the true bypass switch is relay-based to provide silent, click-free on and off switching.
Oxygen Music is excited to stock a wide range of EarthQuaker Devices, including the Westwood, Earthquakers answer to the sought after elusive overdrive pedal so many long for.
