SUNN O))) and EarthQuaker Devices Introduce the Life Pedal

Earthquaker-Sunn O))) Life Pedal

SUNN O))) and EarthQuaker Devices have teamed up to release an effects box called the Life Pedal. The pedal, which is limited edition and hand numbered, includes an octave fuzz and distortion with boost. EarthQuaker explains the collaboration came during the recording sessions for the latest SUNN O))) album, Life Metal, for which they wanted a “broader energy spectrum over high powered saturation and across planes of sonic character.”

“The Life Pedal is designed to represent the core front end chain used in those sessions, to drive the tubes of the band’s multiple vintage Sunn O))) Model T amplifiers into overload ecstasy,” they write. “This is a 100w tube amp full stack’s holy dream, or its apostate nightmare.”

The Life Pedal is limited to 1,000 units and carries a price tag of $249.

Earthquaker/Sunn O))) Life Pedal Features:

Octave Knob
Distortion Control
Low Pass Filter
Amplitude Control
Clipping Switch: OpAmp, Asymm, Symm
Magnitude Control
True Bypass
Power: 9V battery or 9VDC

          Yea It was sold out in just a couple hours. I work night shift woke up at like 2:30pm and it was sold out already. Why would they post an article about something a week after it’s no longer available. Also it’s just basically copy and pasted from the manufacturer.

            In their defense, I’m on the EQD email list and I think it sold out by the time I opened the email announcing the pedal. ?????
            Nothing against Earthquaker but more promotion for the band than anything else it seemed. Who knows, maybe they’ll make more, but you could probably get this sound (or find your own blissed out noise) by cobbling together a few of your favorite fuzzes, distortions and drives.
