A Genuine Gem

Compromise - it's a word that's as synonymous with the electric guitar as "wah" or "overdrive". Well, no more. If you crave darker tones and still aim to cut through the mix the Arrows is your first class ticket. While not as extreme as a treble boost, it pushes the upper-mids in a way that is frankly orgasmic. If we all ate sounds and I was on death row, I would order this as my last meal.

A boost that really works!

Perfect for boosting your volume in a usable way, even fully cranked. It really does add sparkle and a touch of grit to your tone. Excellent build quality and presentation. I like using it before my fuzz but after my distortion. It really helps in front of a delay, too. Simple, too.

Cuts Like A Knife

If you haven't heard an Earthquaker Devices pedal in person, stop what you are doing and go now! I have yet to be disappointed by these guys. I bought this pedal because my Orange Dual Dark 100 is fairly dark with my guitars, and I was hoping to get something with an edge. Boy does thing do so much for a one knob pedal. Anywhere from 10 o'clock below, is providing a cut, while also giving a bit more bite to your sound, perfect for super high output pedals that need some taming, pedal stack it like a champ! If you crank this pedal or simply turn it to about 2 o'clock, it really sings as an overdrive all its own. So great, why even question it?

The missing link

I'll tell you what. This thing will make your amp or dirt pedals sing. The resonance and harmonics this thing brings out of your amp is astonishing. Also I was going to sell my mesa boogie pedal because I thought it sounded like garbage but paired with this thing is sounds bad ***!

My perfect boost

I have many boost pedals by big companies and small boutiques, plus my own homebrew boosters. This is by far my all time favorite. It isn't totally clean, there's something going on here that sweetens up my tone just the way I like it. Every guitar (single coils, humbuckers, P90s), every one of my tube amps, it just gives the amp the right kick. If it got stolen, lost or broken I'd buy another immediately.
