The Dunes from EarthQuaker Devices takes the classic ‘808’ platform and packs it with player-friendly feature so guitarists can fine tune their ideal overdrive sound like never before! The pedal features the same Gain, Tone and Level controls along with the favorite voice and bandwidth settings as well as the ‘Normal/Bright’ toggle found on the Palisades.
The selectable voices are: ‘MOSFET’ for a tight crunchy sound (Setting 3 on the Palisades), ‘Silicon’ for the classic 808 sound (Setting 5 on the Palisades) and ‘None’ which goes from clean boost to gritty, pure opamp distortion with a massive volume boost (Setting 1 on the Palisades). The two bandwidth settings are ‘stock’ for the classic tone (Setting 3 on the Palisades) and ‘full range’ for more low end (Setting 5 on the Palisades).
The Dunes has all the great tone of the big boy Palisades but with a simplified interface and a smaller footprint!
