Earthquaker Devices are arguably the most well known boutique effects pedal maker in the world, with a selection of pedals that is hugely diverse and encompasses both functionality and insanity in equal measure. All of their pedals are lovingly handmade in Akron, Ohio.
The Westwood is described by Earthquaker as a 'Translucent Drive Manipulator,' and we can't argue that it is one of the most responsive and manipulative drives we have heard. Covering everything for light transparent gain to harmonically rich, sustaining overdrive, the Westwood is incredibly flexible and a huge variety of tones can be achieved by altering the dynamics of your playing alone. At its sonic best when pushing a tube combo amp in to saturation, the Westwood is the latest in a long line of fantastically made and excellent sounding pedals from Earthquaker Devices.
