Guitar and Bass demo of the tonal vulcano, the Erupter by EarthQuaker Devices.
“Perfection is achieved, not when there’s nothing more to add, but when there’s nothing left to take away”, and with the Erupter, Jamie Stillman of EarthQuaker Devices has managed to do just that. Distill his unabashed love for fuzz down into a no nonsense one-dial box of doom.
This NOS Silicon Fuzz just features a single Bias control, which lets you change the voltage fed to the transistors for everything from gated and sputtery fuzz tones to an unapologetic wall of heavy and harmonically rich fuzz-stortion.
This thing just obliterates everything in its path with its massive but never mushy low-end and present but never piercing high-end, making it perfect for super slow and doomy chord progressions as well as stinging synthy lead lines.
Also, the one-knob design never leaves you wanting because the pedal is so well-voiced. So if you do feel like doing some slight tone shaping, you just roll back the volume or tone on your instrument. This pedal wants you to rock instead of tweak, and I love it for it.
Your neighbors will probably wish it had a volume control, but that’s not how we roll here. It’s all or nothing!
So if full-on classic fuzz tones is your thing, then you gotta check out this fuzz machine!
