Product Description

The Spires was born from a need to have the big old Rosac Nu Fuzz and the now discontinued Dream Crusher on a pedalboard without taking up all the space. The green channel features a cranked fuzz inspired by the Rosac Electronic Nu-Fuzz, which, for all the unacquainted fuzz seekers, was released in 1968- decades prior to the dreaded ‘nu’ prefix ever being uttered. The original schematic for Rosac Nu Fuzz is somewhat of a mystery so EarthQuaker used an original to make a ‘sonic copy’ that is pretty much dead on. It is full-on fuzz all the time and uses crude wide range tone control to change the character from big and warm to sizzling and blown out.



The Red channel is a silicon version of the now discontinued Dream Crusher. There’s no need to mourn the loss anymore. Dreams will still be crushed with walls of classic two transistor fuzz, only this time the crushing will be much more stable and less temperature sensitive. It features a very usable, dynamic Fuzz control and tons of output volume, just like the original. Each Spires is hand made one at a time in Akron, Ohio.

What is your opinion of this product?
Two incredible fuzz effects in this sweet pedal. Fuzz is my FAVORITE effect and this pedal does not leave me dissappointed. the red channel is a more muffled, slightly subtle fuzz while playing single notes that really shows it teeth when playing more aggressively or playing chords. The green channel is a totally blown out, mean and nasty fuzz. I've found that it is best used with single note playing otherwise while playing chords, it can get to be a little too much distortion and can sound crunchy. The ability to switch between channels is really sweet too, because if you dial each side in just right, you can play red channel and then switch over to the green channel for nasty overdriven bits of a song.
