Is it a goat? Is it the reaper? No! It’s the Reaper mounted in a Goat! That’s an image not easy to forget, just as the tone possibilities this pedal can achieve.
The Goat Reaper Device is the must-have pedal for modern guitarists. Featuring the popular EQD Hoof and Tone Reaper fuzz pedals in one handy enclosure, the result it’s perfect for all your sonic needs. Plus, the addition of the Tentacle, an old-school analog octave up gives your sound extra depth and dimension.
This incredible pedal can create everything from subtle octave-up overtones to crushing octave squalls that simulate exploding stacks of amps. Each effect can be used individually as well as in series, but the order of effects is preset for optimum performance.
If you are going to have three boards in one, you better choose the best of all them, and that’s precisely what the Goat Reaper Device does!
On one side, you will find the critically acclaimed EQD Hoof, a circuit that is considered one of the best muff-inspired fuzzes ever made! This pedal has roots in the classic Green Russian featuring a hybrid Germanium/Silicon design, pairing maximum tone with maximum temperature stability not found in finicky and expensive vintage units. The result? A circuit that combines the best elements of a fuzz effect and overdriven amplifier by delivering a healthy dose of smooth, harmonically rich sustain, along with its distinctive, vintage-style fuzz.
On the other side is the EQD Tone Reaper, another vintage-style fuzz device that´s a silicon/germanium hybrid. This section is ready to deliver an array of tones from every ToneBender era with careful tweaking of the tone and fuzz controls. From light and spitty to a growling crunch, all with a midrange punch to make it scratch and kick through any mix. You will also get those higher gain Randy Rhodes style grinds at its higher fuzz settings.
The third and last one is the Tentacle, a knob analog octave up that matches perfectly with any type of fuzz and reveals its true potential once you pair it with other pedals.
All three effects can be used independently or stacked together for an array of endless tone possibilities.
So why wait? Mount the goat and ride with the Grim Reaper in search of the perfect sound!
