EarthQuaker Devices Palisades Overdrive Pedal at a Glance:
  • Voice control - choose your flavor of overdrive
  • Bandwidth control - fine-tune your overdrive tone
  • Two gain sections bring it all together
Voice control - choose your flavor of overdrive

The Voice control on the Palisades overdrive pedal lets you select from six distinct styles of clipping from transparent and open to tight and crunchy. There's a lot of variation to explore here, especially considering that the Voice control is heavily affected by the Gain controls (and which gain section you're using, for that matter).

Bandwidth control - fine-tune your overdrive tone

The Palisades pedal has the character of a classic mid-boost overdrive, and the Bandwidth control gives you an extra degree of tone shaping. The Bandwidth control affects the frequency response of the distortion - EarthQuaker Devices describes it as ranging "from thin, light and clean through fat, heavy and crunchy." The Bandwidth control is what gives the Palisades pedal such a wide range of overdrive tones.

Two gain sections bring it all together

Two gain channels give the Palisades overdrive even more flexibility. Gain A is your choice for lower-gain tone with grit, perfect for rhythm parts and strummed chords. Gain B offers more gain and a tighter sound, perfect for lead playing and palm muting. The gain settings heavily influence the character of the Voice and Bandwidth parameters, so it's worth spending some time with this pedal to really get an idea of all the different sounds it's capable of producing.
