Inspired by EQD Dunes, Sand Device is the perfect pedal for the modern player who wants the purest mid-boosting transparent overdrive tones without unnecessary distractions. Basically, this board is a condensed, straightforward take on the highly popular Palisades “808-style” overdrive.
Imagine grabbing an EQD Palisades and stripping away all its extra glitz and glamour till you get to the pure core. The result? The Sand Device, an awesome board that has all the great tones of the grown-up Palisades but with a simplified interface and a smaller footprint!
Sand Device has the same features as the Palasides: Gain, Tone, and Level controls, along with the classical voice and bandwidth settings, as well as the Normal/Bright toggle.
You can choose selectable clipping voices. Try the MOSFET for a tight, crunchy sound. Switch to Silicon clipping for tighter light gain. Select None to go from clean boost to gritty, pure op-amp distortion with a massive volume boost.
The two Bandwidth settings are Stock for the classic tone and Full Range for lower end.
Gain: Adjusts distortion, dirtier clockwise, cleaner counter-clockwise.
Tone: Brighter clockwise, warmer counterclockwise.
Volume: Adjusts the output level.
Normal / Bright: Normal is a warm sound, Bright is a more vivid sound.
Bandwidth: To the left is brighter with more emphasis on the mids, to the right is the full range for more low frequencies.
Diode: MF-MOSFET (Mosfet diode clipping), N-No (diodeless clipping), Si-Silicon (silicon diode clipping).
