The Acapulco Gold is a dirt-simple power amp distortion device that's based on the vibe of a cranked Sunn Model T. You know what's awesome? Vintage Sunn Amplifiers. You know what else is awesome? Simplicity. One button, one knob. How loud would you like it? Just move the knob. This is the spirit of rock and roll. Quit turning knobs and play that guitar like you mean it.
While playing, you may want to try ignoring our suggestion and try fiddlin' with your guitar's volume and tone knobs as these can drastically affect the sound of the Acapulco Gold. The volume knob on your guitar cleans up the pedal nicely, but not too clean. At minimum guitar volume settings, the Gold imparts a hazy, Nashville-sounding spank to your tone. At just-barely-backed-off, the Gold turns into a raunchy overdrive. And of course when the guitar volume is completely open, the Gold roars like a Model T on the verge of explosion. It's not quite fuzz, but so close.
Each Acapulco Gold is made part by part, wire by wire, giant knob by giant knob with real, live humanimal hands in Earthquaker's gilded manufactory located in gray olde Akron, Ohio, USA.
Gritty distortion tones that can be tweaked using your guitar's volume controls
Simple one-knob control layout
Handmade in the USA

Comments about Earthquaker Devices Acapulco Gold - Power Amp Distortion Guitar Pedal:
This my favorite pedal. As advertised it gives you a giant 70s Sunn sound with no fuss. It sounds so good that I play with it on most of the time and just roll my guitar's volume knob down.
