EarthQuaker Session: Stems - "Good Times"

Aaron Rogers

Akron’s goodtime indie-rockers Stems (featuring EQD wire wizard Justin Seeker on vocals and guitar) stopped by the studio to tear through this earworm of a track titled, appropriately enough, “Good Times…”

If you weren’t sure how psyched we are to be involved with Levitation, the psych fest taking place in Austin April 26-29, we named a pedal after it.

EarthQuaker Session: The Beyonderers - "Science Friction"

Aaron Rogers

Akron, Ohio gets a lot of credit for being LeBron James’ hometown. More impressive still is the fact that we’re also home to the world’s heaviest surf band, The Beyonderers. Not too shabby considering Lake Erie is our only surfable body of water. Put a championship ring on that, why don’t you?

Show Us Your Junk! Ep. 3 - Taka Tozawa (Deltron 3030)

Lots and lots of volume. Each chord she plays and every note she sings hangs heavy and thick in the dry desert air like a cluster of tiny rainclouds gathering moisture, waiting to release thunder and lightning upon meeting a pocket of warm sky...

Speaker Cranker Overdrive

Aaron Rogers

You want more? Turn up the “More” knob. That’s all there is to it. If you want “More,” you got it.  The Speaker Cranker’s “More” knob works just like a tube amp: lower on the dial you’ll find thinner, quieter tones. Crank it up, and you’ll hear your tone, only fuller and with a slight touch of compression. If you want a boost, buy a booster, because the Speaker Cranker is an overdrive, buddy, and don’t you forget it...
