Overdrive with Lots of Sound-shaping Potential

Plug your guitar in to the EarthQuaker Devices Talons overdrive pedal, set your amp at its breakup point, and you're well on your way toward crafting your own distinctive tone. Talons isn't designed to mimic the sound of classic gear; it's got its own character and plenty of sound-shaping controls, like a 3-band EQ with a wide boost/cut range, and a Presence control for dialing in the perfect amount of tenacity. Whether you use it for its overdrive sound or use its generous volume control to punch your amp into its own overdrive, you'll be pleased with the EarthQuaker Devices Talons overdrive on your pedalboard.

Accepts 9-volt and 18-volt power supplies for two distinct flavors

On top of its tone-shaping controls, you can alter the tone of the EarthQuaker Devices Talons overdrive just based on what type of power supply you use. With a standard 9-volt power supply or battery, EarthQuaker Devices describes the sound as a "warmer, amp-like tone." With an 18-volt power supply, you get more clean headroom and a slightly "tighter" sound. Vintage tone hounds will probably prefer the 9-volt sound, and players seeking a more modern sound may prefer an 18-volt power supply.

Nice solid pedal

I got this for my son for Christmas. Good solid, made in USA pedal. Sweetwater was helpful as always. My son seems to be happy with it but hasn't used it very much yet.

Sweetwater Advice

Charlie Davis

Sometimes I don't want a pedal that sounds like something else. Sometimes I need a pedal that can be shaped into whatever sound I want. The Talons is that drive pedal. With a 3-band active EQ, presence control to tailor my top end, and gain range that goes from boost to extreme crunch, this is a drive that's highly usable on my pedalboard.
