Earthquaker Devices’ Westwood translucent overdrive pedal is a powerful tonal tool that excels at pulling the most harmonically rich drive from any amplifier. To fine-tune the pedal’s voice to your rig, you’ll take advantage of its active Treble and Bass controls. When shifted from their center detent, you’re able to cut or boost the frequencies an astounding 20dB. And the pedal’s Drive control is carefully voiced to offer an extremely musical response from squeaky clean to thick drive that’s ideal for soaring leads. If you’re looking for a transparent drive pedal, Sweetwater highly recommends you check out the Westwood.
