Classic Vibe with So Much More
The EarthQuaker Devices The Depths V2 optical vibe effects pedal reminds us that there is nothing quite like the sound of a guitar going through a great vibe. This second-generation model is even better than the original, with an updated flexi switch that allows for either momentary or latching operation. The Depths V2 offers all the tones heard on such iconic songs as Robin Trower’s “Bridge of Sighs” and Hendrix’s “Machine Gun.” It then adds Voice and Throb controls to take those sounds far into the future, and the 100% analog dry signal path and true bypass ensure your original guitar tone shines through. There aren’t many vibe pedals with as much control as the EarthQuaker Devices The Depths V2.
Nails the classic vibe tones
“Breathe” and “Brain Damage” from The Dark Side of the Moon, Alter Bridge’s “Blackbird” solo, Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s “Blue on Black,” and the aforementioned “Bridge of Sighs” are all stunning examples of what this pulsating effect can add to your tone. EarthQuaker Devices The Depths V2 is a great example of this, adding a three-dimensional swirl of new voices to your melodies and rhythms. The vibe was one of the first modulation effects, and it’s still going strong as a must-have pedal for your board.
Powerful controls for creating your own vibe
Once you’ve got those iconic tones under your feet, you’ll want to experiment to take your sound to new places. The Depths V2 offers Voice and Throb controls to deliver new voices to your vibe. Cranking the Throb control adds huge low-end pulsing. The Voice knob controls the overall performance of the pedal. Pushed, it delivers a fuller sound with more lows. Pull it back, and you’ll hear a thinner, more mid-focused tone. In conjunction with the other controls, you’ll be able to elicit sharp, stuttering effects all the way through molasses-slow warble.
