A long Time Ago in 2004: EQD
Everybody knows that a guitarist is only as cool as their pedalboard. Everybody also knows that any pedalboard worth its salt has a few of these puppies onboard. It's difficult to overstate the impact Earthquaker Devices has had on the world of effect pedals. Starting as a profound love of Fuzz pedals, Earthquakers first production pedal the Hoof Fuzz quickly placed them on the map and started the climb towards tonal domination.
Earthquaker Devices Still Cares
Founded by Jamie Stillman in an Akron Ohio basement, Earthquaker has grown immensely since its early days but refuses to depart from their strongly held belief that every pedal should be hand crafted and individually tested by a team of like-minded pedal nerds. Some companies grow larger and lose sight of what matters, but Earthquaker Devices has managed to instead become a haven for over 50 professional noisemakers who hold the shared vision of bringing noise to all. And we say Cheers!
