Earthquaker Devices has introduced the Westwood, a pedal they describe as “a mild mannered light-to medium-gain translucent overdrive manipulator.” Its EQ section includes Treble and Bass controls with up to 20 dB of cut/boost while its drive section offers a host of tones.
“The Westwood’s Drive control sets the level of gain for a near-clean boost at lower settings, to rich, bell-like jangle and chime, all the way to soaring lead tones that are cutting and distinct, but never harsh,” Earthquaker writes. “On the bass guitar, the Westwood provides warm low-mids and a smooth top end with plenty of vintage grit and punch.”
Other features include true bypass, silent relay-based switching, and an all-analog signal path. It’s shipping soon with a MAP of $179.
