Earthquaker Acapulco Gold

Earthquaker Acapulco Gold


This noisy little pedal was built to be modeled after a Sunn Model T amp’s power section...with everything turned all the way up. This pedal takes that tonal footprint and allows you simply to turn the volume up or down. Good luck!

Interface:  5/5
We love one knob pedals. This is as easy as it gets.

Versatility: 1/5
Usually with one knob comes one function. This pedal only does one thing, and the knob lets you choose how loud that thing is done.

Tonal Reproduction: 2/5
There is so much dirt and crunch that this pedal creates, that your tone can easily be left by the wayside. That being said, the pedal does give a nice warmth and strength to all the noise it produces.

Live application: 2/5
Sadly, this might not be a good live solution. The pedal models an amp with everything turned up to ten. That being the case, it will most likely have some serious feedback issues when using it live with a microphone.
