EarthQuaker Devices to Release Updates to Avalanche Run, the Depths, Hoof Reaper, Rainbow Machine, and Spatial Delivery

EarthQuaker Devices to Release Updates to Avalanche Run, the Depths, Hoof Reaper, Rainbow Machine, and Spatial Delivery

Extra special effects pedal manufacturer EarthQuaker Devices will release updates to its popular Avalanche Run, the Depths, Hoof Reaper, Rainbow Machine, and Spatial Delivery pedals on January 10, 2018.

The company’s flagship stereo reverb and delay, Avalanche Run, will receive a new custom-built enclosure and updated stereo reverb imaging, courtesy of an update to its proprietary DSP algorithm.

The Rainbow Machine, a polyphonic pitch shifting modulator for experimenters and purists alike, will receive circuit updates for a lower noise floor, higher output, and a recalibrated Magic control for more controllable oscillations and a wider range of available sounds. In addition, both footswitches have been converted to silent relay-based flexi switch switching, for effortless operation and the ability to use the Rainbow Machine’s Activate and Magic features as a momentary effect. 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.

Also receiving flex function switching are the Depths vibrato, Spatial Delivery envelope filter with sample and hold, and the Hoof Reaper, which will receive flexi switch control over its analog octave feature.

Avalanche Run v2, the Depths v2, Hoof Reaper v2, Rainbow Machine v2, and Spatial Delivery v2 will be available at EarthQuaker Devices dealers worldwide on January 10, 2018.

The complete list of features is below:

Avalanche Run v2

Earthquaker Devices Avalanche Run v2

  • In Normal and Swell modes, holding down the Tap switch stacks delay repeats for self-oscillation
  • In Reverse mode, holding down the Tap switch momentarily switches the delay to Normal mode. Release the Tap switch to return to Normal mode.

  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Current draw: 425mA
  • MAP: $299 USD
  • Each and every Avalanche Run is completely assembled, wired and tested by total human beans in the tiny tundra town of Akron, Ohio.

The Depths v2

Earthquaker Devices The Depths v2

  • Optical Vibrato
  • Lush, pulsating, three-dimensional vintage pitch-shifting vibrato tones with modern accoutrements
  • Optimized for use with all electric instruments and to stack with overdrive/fuzz pedals
  • Unique “Throb” control adds a hefty subharmonic low-end pulse to the vibrato signal, which is especially useful on synthesizers and the bass guitar.
  • Level control has tons of output on tap to combat perceived volume loss common with vibrato pedals, and may even be used as a clean boost!
  • May be powered at 9v or 18v. Using the Depths at 18v results in a stiffer tone with more headroom and sparkle.
  • True Bypass
  • New flexi switch silent relay based switching allows for traditional latching or momentary operation*
  • All-analog dry signal path
  • All-analog wet signal path
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Current draw: 35mA
  • MAP: $199 USD
  • The Depths is true-bypass, uses rusty all-analog circuitry, and is built one-at-a-time aboard the wreckage of the SS Minnow, currently dry-docked in Akron, Ohio, USA.

Hoof Reaper v2

Earthquaker Devices Hoof Reaper v2

  • Dual Fuzz Octave
  • Three pedals in one!
  • Combines Hoof fuzz, Tone Reaper fuzz, and Tentacle analog octave up for any combination of “Muff-style,” “Three Knob Bender,” or analog octave up tones!
  • Signal flow is Octave > Tone Reaper > Hoof
  • Possible switching combinations:
    • Hoof
    • Tone Reaper
    • Octave
    • Tone Reaper & Octave
    • Hoof & Octave

  • Tone Reaper
    • Germanium / silicon hybrid fuzz based on the classic “Three Knob Bender”
    • Capable of producing an array of tones from every bender era with careful tweaking of the tone and fuzz controls
  • Octave
    • Analog octave up
    • Playing below the 12th fret, adds overtones and crunch
    • Above the 12th fret, a more pronounced Hendrix-like octave appears
  • Hoof, Reaper, and Octave footswitches upgraded for silent relay-based switching*
  • Octave switch updated with new flexi switch silent relay based switching for traditional latching or momentary operation*
  • True Bypass
  • All-analog signal path
  • Lifetime guarantee

  • MAP: $299 USD
  • Each and every Hoof Reaper is built by hand in Akron, Ohio, USA

Rainbow Machine v2

  • Polyphonic Pitch Shifting Modulator
  • Totally not for purists or “tone hounds”
  • Bright pink enclosure
  • Capable of polyphonic harmonies from a perfect 4th below the input, up to a major 3rd above the input, plus chorus and pitch shifted echo tones.
  • “Secondary” control adds an additional octave above or below the harmony
  • “Magic” control introduces regeneration / feedback of the wet signal for wild pitch take offs and descents, chaos chorusing, shrieks, pixie trails and wealth of other general mayhem inducing noises.
  • “Pitch” control may be controlled via expression pedal for expressive pitch bends
  • New flexi switch silent relay based switching on Activate and Magic footswitches allows for traditional latching or momentary operation*
    • 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. *
