V2 with silent relay based soft touch switching.
The EarthQuaker Devices - Palisades is something we said we would never do… an overdrive based on the legendary TS808! Gasp! The horror! Another tubes creamer?? In 2014?? Really?? After loads of requests we finally buckled. We ran tests with every popular clone on the market as well as several vintage originals, compared, contrasted and took loads of notes. It was exhausting but informative. In the end, we threw it all away, used our ears and came up with what we feel is the most versatile relative of the 808 available today.
With 6 different clipping voices, 5 bandwidth settings and 2 gain channels you will be hard-pressed to not find a setting that will wipe every mid-boosting overdrive off your board. The clipping voices determine how transparent and open or tight and crunchy the distortion is. They will vary drastically depending on where the gain is set, what channel is active and how much bandwidth is being used. The bandwidth sets the frequency response of the distortion and goes from thin, light and clean through fat heavy and crunchy. It may very well be the single most important control the EarthQuaker Devices - Palisades has and what really sets it apart.
Gain A is a lower gain channel with a wider range of grit that is great for strumming open chords. Gain B is a higher gain channel with a tighter range that is great for palm muting and/or shredding solos. The EarthQuaker Devices - Palisadesalso has a foot switchable volume boost with adjustable level to take it over the top when you want to throw your foot up on the monitor and rip your sweet leads… or maybe just push the front end of you amp a little harder. Not enough? How about a normal/bright switch to mix and match the overall tone to different amps and guitars. Still not enough? OK then, how about a buffer on/off switch to tighten up the tone and make it sparkle when set to “ON” or warm it up and make it sag when set to “OFF”.
The EarthQuaker Devices - Palisades is a versatile dude that will give you years of loving companionship. Each EarthQuaker Devices - Palisades is hand made one at a time in the tiny tree house community of Akron, Ohio.
Boost: Sets the level of the output boost.
Volume: Sets the output level.
Tone: Brighter clockwise, warmer counter clockwise.
Gain A: Sets the gain for the Channel A (lower gain)
Gain B: Sets the gain for Channel B (higher gain)
Activate: True bypass switch
Gain B: Activates Gain Channel B
Boost: Activates the output level boost
Normal/Bright: Normal is a warm full tone, Bright is livelier tone with more chime.
Buffer: Turns the input buffer on or off. ON is a tighter and brighter tone while OFF is a warmer tone with more sag. The buffer is part of the drive circuit & is only available when the EarthQuaker Devices - Palisades is activated.
Bandwidth: This sets the overall tone and gain structure of the EarthQuaker Devices - Palisades. 1 is the thinnest setting with the least amount of gain and 5 is the fattest setting with the heaviest gain. Everything else is in between. This control has a major effect on all the settings of the EarthQuaker Devices - Palisades, especially the gain and voice controls.
Voice: This sets the nature of the EarthQuaker Devices - Palisades distortion by changing the clipping diodes. 1- No diodes: The most open and least distorted. 2- LED clipping: light clipping with a lot of volume. 3- Mosfet clipping: light gain OD with great harmonics. 4- Asymmetrical Silicon clipping: Tighter light gain OD closest to stock 808. 5- Symmetrical silicon clipping: tighter distorted tone. 6- Schottky Diode clipping: Looser fuzzy tone.

BewertungMoritz Wiedmann(on 15.10.2015)Ich war lange Zeit sehr kritisch mir ein Overdrive-Pedal zu kaufen, da ich bereits einen entsprechenden Effekt an meinem Amp habe.
So habe ich in verschiedenen Shops einige Treter durchprobiert.
Teils war mir der Sound zu dünn oder nicht variabel genug. Auch fehlte mir oft die Boost Funktion. Manche Verkäufer rieten mir dann grinsend, dass ich mir doch nen zusätzlichen Overdrive nur für den Boost kaufen soll.
Dann habe ich Mitte des Jahres auf http://www.bestguitareffects.com den Test des Palisades gelesen und mir verschiedene Testvideos angehört.
Da ich von EarthQuaker bereits den "The Depths" habe, war die Entscheidung dann etwas leichter und ich muss sagen...
Das Ding ist genau das was ich gesucht hatte! All die Zerrsounds die mir aus verschiedensten Alben bekannt sind oder sonst so vorschweben, schnell und unkompliziert.
