Earthquaker Devices Palisades:
Palisades is something we said we would never do… an overdrive based on
the legendary TS808! Gasp! The horror! Another tubes creamer?? In
2014?? Really?? After loads of requests we finally buckled. We ran tests
with every popular clone on the market as well as several vintage
originals, compared, contrasted and took loads of notes. It was
exhausting but informative. In the end, we threw it all away, used our
ears and came up with what we feel is the most versatile relative of the
808 available today.
6 different clipping voices, 5 bandwidth settings and 2 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.
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”.
EarthQuaker Devices Palisades V2 Mega Ultimate Overdrive Features:
Boost: Sets the level of the output boost.Volume: Sets the output level.Tone: Brighter clockwise, warmer counter clockwise.Gain A: Sets the gain for the Channel A (lower gain)Gain B: Sets the gain for Channel B (higher gain)
Normal/Bright: Normal is a warm full tone, Bright is livelier tone with more chime.Buffer: Turns the input buffer on or off. ON is a tighter and
brighter tone while OFF is a warmer tone with more sag. The buffer is
part of the drive circuit is only available when the Palisades is
Bandwidth: This sets the overall tone and gain structure of the
Palisades. 1 is the thinnest setting with the least amount of gain and 5
is the fattest setting with the heaviest gain. Everything else is in
between. This control has a major effect on all the settings of the
Palisades, especially the gain and voice controls.
Activate: True bypass switchGain B: Activates Gain Channel BBoost: Activates the output level boost
This device features Flexi-Switch Technology on the Gain and Boost
switches! This relay-based, true bypass switching style allows you to
simultaneously use momentary and latching style switching.
For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch once to activate
the effect and then tap again to bypass. For momentary operation, hold
the footswitch down for as long as you’d like to use the effect. Once
you release the switch the effect will be bypassed. Since the switching
is relay based, it requires power to pass signal.
