What's this, another dirt pedal? You may think you know everything about dirt pedals, but if you haven't tried the EarthQuaker Devices Westwood, then you've got more to learn. The Westwood is perhaps the most touch-sensitive drive pedal out there, and it has an active eq to help you dial in the right sound. As you explore the gain knob, the Westwood remains amp-like and touch sensitive, and unlike other dirt pedals, the frequency response isn't affected by the level and the gain knobs. Because of that, the settings are predictable, and the possibilities are endless. It's a drive pedal that lets you fine tune for the specific guitar/amp combo and dial in the right amount of gain or boost for each setting.
This 2018 EarthQuaker Devices Westwood shows some minor cosmetic wear, but it's in excellent shape and functions 100% as it should. The serial number has been rubbed off the label on the back, but fortunately it's still visible written inside the pedal. Once you add the Westwood to your pedalboard, it's not going anywhere. This is a dirt pedal that will be impossible to replace.
More info from EarthQuaker Devices:
"Westwood is a touch sensitive translucent overdrive manipulator as clean and pure as the breeze which blows through a grove of Douglas Fir trees, and as hot as a damn fine cup of coffee.
"This mild-mannered light- to medium-gain overdrive with active EQ controls will still knock the socks right off your trusty low-wattage combo amp, pushing it into anything from cutting, edge-of-breakup rhythm tones, all the way to articulate, singing lead tones stacked high with pleasing even-order harmonics and sweet, sweet sustain. And if you pair it up with your favorite head and cab, you should probably call the neighbors first, because the Westwood’s Level control has enough output on tap to alert the proper authorities. Even the FBI.
"Each and every Westwood is a real Blue Rose case, hand built by a team of special agents in the Black Lodge of Akron, Ohio, USA, where the owls are not what they seem, there’s always music in the air, and the birds sing a pretty song."
