The sounds coming out of EarthQuaker Devices are done right. Our songs really benefit from them.

 

<<< EXCERPT FROM OUR INTERVIEW W/ CHON >>>

 

What’s the craziest sound you’ve gotten from an EarthQuaker pedal?

EH: Probably when we used the Disaster Transport. When you turn up the delay, there’s this crazy sound like an alien spaceship in the background, and it just does that forever.

MC: We got a lot of crazy sounds. [laughs]

EH: When the Organizer hits it’s like a huge fuckin’ organ is just harmonizing in a bunch of octaves and that’s cool because it makes it sound huge for a second then it’s back down . . . so it punches you in the gut real quick and goes away.

What do you think makes EarthQuaker Devices different from other effects pedal companies?

MC: Personally, when I think of EarthQuaker, I think of super unique effects. When you hear it, you know what it is.

EH: Like, “Oh, that’s the Arpanoid.” You could play that arpeggio, but no, that’s an EarthQuaker Arpanoid. Or the Rainbow Machine - all those weird, cool sounds you can’t get anywhere else.

MC: Even the Warden [compressor] has a unique sound.

EH: Yeah, or like, we have another EQ / Boost pedal, but we used the Arrows in the studio, because it didn’t hinder the tone at all. [The Arrows] made the part more articulate instead of muddying it down with more bass like our other boost was doing.
