EarthQuaker Devices updates four of its popular effects pedals

The pedal maker introduces the Arpanoid V2, Grand Orbiter V3, Palisades V2 and the Warden V2.

EarthQuaker Devices is launching four new updated pedals, which are all now shipping to the UK from the Audio Distribution Group/Filling Distribution alliance.

With the release of Arpanoid V2, Grand Orbiter V3, Palisades V2 and The Warden V2, EarthQuaker Devices brings modern updates to these top-selling pedals.

All four pedals now feature an updated high-quality soft-touch relay switching system for dead-silent and effortless on-stage operation, along with enhanced long-term durability.

In addition, the Arpanoid V2, Grand Orbiter V3 and Palisades V2 feature EarthQuaker Devices’ all new Flexi-switch, which gives players the ability to use the pedals in either standard latch mode or the new momentary mode.

Here’s a little more information about each updated pedal:

Arpanoid V2 – UK ERP £229

The original Arpanoid was the first dedicated compact polyphonic pitch arpeggiator effects pedal for the electric guitar. It takes whatever notes you play and calculates an adjustable ascending or descending scale based on the root note. It also works on complex chords as well as single notes in any key. Its eight modes feature major and minor patterns so your next jazz odyssey will remain on time and in tune. The patterns go from one octave below the input to one octave above, so there’s plenty of harmonic range, and the Arpanoid’s “random” patterns are sure to be a hit at your next psychedelic freakout.

With the Arpanoid V2 version EQD adds their new “flexi switch” switching which allows players to select between momentary or latching operation with the tap of a foot! 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. In addition, the Arpanoid V2 features a circuit upgrade for better performance, lower noise and increased output.

Grand Orbiter V3 – UK ERP £209

The Grand Orbiter is a 4 stage OTA-based phaser with a diverse feature set that can go from stationary and resonant to slow and mellow and on through fast and swirly. It has a three-way toggle switch to select between the ranges of modulation: Rate 1 is slow sweep mode, Rate 2 kills the LFO and allows you to use the Grand Orbiter as a fixed resonant filter and Rate 3 is fast sweep mode. So no matter what starlit galaxies you wanna go to, Grand Orbiter is definitely the right vessel for your intergalactic travels.

With the Grand Orbiter V3 version, EQD adds their new “flexi switch” switching which allows players to select between momentary or latching operation with the tap of a foot! 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.

Palisades V2 – UK ERP £249

The Palisades is something EarthQuaker Devices said they would never do… an overdrive based on the legendary TS808. Another tubescreamer? Really? Yes, but as with everything EQD, things are always pushed to the next sonic level. You’re not just getting a Tubescreamer. You’re getting all the Tubescreamers and then some in this behemoth of an overdrive that’ll give you everything from a comforting classic crunch to frantic fire-breathing walls of fuzz.

With the Palisades V2 version, EQD adds their new “flexi switch” switching which allows players to select between momentary or latching operation of Gain B and Boost sections with the tap of a foot.

The Warden V2 – UK ERP £209

The Warden V2 is an optical compressor with a feature set usually reserved for studio grade units.

Built with high-grade components and internally powered by 18v, The Warden has loads of gain and sustain on tap. Optical compression has a reputation for having more character than a VCA or FET based compression and The Warden is no exception.

So whether you’re going for a subtle level-evening, always-on tone enhancement or that obvious chicken-pickin’ pop and squeeze, The Warden is sure to deliver the sonic stranglehold you need.
