NEW EARTHQUAKER DEVICES WESTWOOD TRANSPARENT OVERDRIVE MANIPULATOR

$179.00

Product Description

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. And if you pair it up with your favorite head and cab, you should probably call the neighbors first, because the Westwood’s Level control has enough output on tap to alert the proper authorities. Even the FBI.

Each and every Westwood is a real Blue Rose case, hand built by a team of special agents in the Black Lodge of Akron, Ohio, USA, where the owls are not what they seem, there’s always music in the air, and the birds sing a pretty song.

Features:

  • Translucent Overdrive Manipulator with two-band active EQ
  • Perfect for pushing low-wattage amps 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.
  • Powerful active EQ section with center-detent pots has up to 20dB of cut and/or boost to tame icepick-y single coils, give humbuckers some airy top end sparkle, or cut the mud out of a dark sounding rig.
  • Drive control sets the level of gain for a near-clean boost at lower settings, to rich, bell-like jangle and chime, all the way to soaring lead tones that are cutting and distinct, but never harsh.
  • Responds to changes in guitar volume and tone controls at any setting
  • Varying the intensity of your pick attack reveals the subtle nuances of your technique and tone
  • Treble affects the area around 2kHz and is handy for taming icepick-y single coils, or giving humbuckers a lift to add an open and airy top end sparkle.
  • Bass control operates around 80Hz and can be used to tighten up the low end of an already dark sounding guitar, or if turned up, will soften your attack, and introduce tube-like sag for a “browned out” sound with plenty of woody, organic bottom end thump that’ll make chords think and chunky, while single notes bloom with ringing sustain.
  • On the bass guitar, the Westwood provides warm low-mids and a smooth top end with plenty of vintage grit and punch.
  • True bypass
  • Silent relay-based switching
  • All-analog signal path
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Current Draw: 15mA
  • Product Dimensions: 4.75″ x 2.50″ x 2.25″
  • Shipping Dimensions: 5.750” x 3.250” x 3.250”
  • Each and every Westwood is a real Blue Rose case, hand built by a team of special agents in the Black Lodge of Akron, Ohio, USA, where the owls are not what they seem, there’s always music in the air, and the birds sing a pretty song.
