With six different clipping voices, five bandwidth settings and two 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 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 Palisades also 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.

Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Palisades Mega Ultimate Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:
I had been using a TS9 on my board for quite some time, and I loved the sounds I could get out of it, but it wasn't extremely versatile. I had been looking into the Palisades for a while, and finally got the cash to purchase it. At first I was totally overwhelmed-infinite number of sonic options-but after a few hours of messing around with it I began to understand the logic and feel of it. Once I got to that point I was hooked. You can get SO many tones out of this thing, from subtle clean boost sparkle to nasty fuzzy tones, and everything in between. The Voice and Bandwidth knobs work together to allow you to find the general tone you want, and the volume, tone, buffer options allow you to make fine adjustments to the sound you are working with. And the A/B gain options are awesome. I like to set my amp clean so that I have a nice clean tone with the pedal disengaged, then I set the gain A to something with just a little dirt in it, and the gain B with a bit more attitude. And then if the song I am playing requires even more volume, I still have the boost switch to rely on. All of the sounds are so rich, and it is very responsive to the volume knob on the guitar. Also, I have a fuzz pedal before my OD, and whenever I used to kick on my TS9 along with the fuzz, it's like the fuzz was sucked right out of the mix (probably because of the buffer in the TS9). This does not happen with the Palisades however. I can go from a huge fuzzy sound to a nice, spanky lo-fi overdrive with the click of a button. Get this pedal, it's worth every penny, and if I had spend an extra $100 on it I still would feel like it was worth it!
