Grandpa Cyclops



Tentacle™: Grandpa Cyclops Ltd. Edition

What!? What are these pedals??? Well,in celebration of the May 28th Akron, Ohio opening of MYOPIA, EarthQuaker Devices has collaborated with artist and DEVO co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh on two limited edition pedals!

Grandma and Grandpa Cyclops are limited runs of our Acapulco Gold and Tentacle Devices with new artwork by Mark Mothersbaugh and sold exclusively through the Akron Art Museum as a fundraising effort.

This pedal will only be available during the run of the Akron Myopia exhibition and will no longer be sold after August 28, 2016.

The Tentacle is a classic analog octave up effect. It is the very same octave from our beloved Hoof Reaper pedal. We got so many requests to make this a stand-alone unit that we just had to make it a reality. You can now add an excellent, swelling octave up to anything your heart desires! Pair it with your favorite fuzz, strap on a headband and unleash your inner Jammy Hendrix. Put it in front of another octave up and blow your amp's mind. Throw it in the effects loop of a delay and marvel at what happens (then tell us, we’d like to know too). What’s better? It has no controls! Nothing to worry about at all here, just hit the switch and go for it. The Tentacle is an analog octave up, the effect will become much more pronounced when using your neck pickup and playing above the 12th fret.
