EARTHQUAKER DEVICES BELLOWS FUZZ DRIVER
Greetings, dungeon masters! Stoke the fires in the seventh circle of tone with the Bellows! This little two-knobber is a nod to the non-master volume amps of yesteryear and the fiery tones that come only from diming these vintage behemoths and letting 'er rip until the tubes catch fire. For your safety, and the safety of others, the Bellows packs these tones into a compact Dirt Device without any of the pyrotechnics. The Bellows straddles the line between amp-like grit and fuzzy saturation, with a bunch of useful distorted places in between, capturing nearly every era of Rock-and-Roll in a box. Our simple, scorched-earth approach to design leaves the full frequency response of your instrument intact, which makes the Bellows a great bass overdrive, and guarantees that what goes into the Bellows is what comes out, only hotter. Each and every Bellows is true-bypass and built one-at-a-time in the comedic drama section of Akron, Ohio, USA – the heart of it all! The Bellows uses silent relay-based soft touch switching. Audio will not pass without power.
1. Level: Adjusts the output level by setting the bias voltage of the transistor. A small amount of noise while dialing this in is perfectly normal.
2. Drive: Controls the input gain of the device for different levels of dirt. You’ll find that it is thinner and more clean counterclockwise and thicker with more growl clockwise.
