EarthQuaker Devices Announces the First Installment of their Legacy Reissue Series
AKRON, OHIO, FEBRUARY 2023 – EarthQuaker Devices is excited to reissue the White Light™ Overdrive. The classic EQD overdrive has been updated with a new enclosure, top-mounted jacks and EarthQuaker Devices’ proprietary Flexi-Switch® Technology. The first in a series of Legacy Reissues from the brand, the White Light is limited to just 2,000 units and will be available at EarthQuaker Devices dealers worldwide.
The White Light is a hard clipping vintage voiced dirt pedal that takes its cues from the vintage dirt pedals that defined the sounds of heavy rock. Think OD250 or Distortion+ without being overly derivative, a new voice to an olde sound if you will. The White Light gives you total control over the feel and voice of the dirt along with a modern presence that is highly responsive to your playing. We think you’ll find that it is much more dynamic, open and harmonically rich than these classic overdrives it shares its lineage with.
The Weight control allows you to adjust the saturation and low end, giving you plenty of tonal shaping options. The Gain control goes from clean to a nice crunchy overdrive tone and there is plenty of output volume on tap to flame broil the input of any amplifier. The Compression switch lets you fine tune the character of the distortion; choose between an open voiced overdrive with more high-mids and bite, or more compression with less bite and a flatter mid response.
The White Light is all analog, true bypass and handmade one at a time by some ghouls and a robot in the cement bunker of Akron, Ohio.
