Akron, Ohio's master fuzz lords Earthquaker Devices have brought us a brand new ground rattling box of awesomeness - the Zoar Dynamic Audio Grinder. This pedal, a highly interactive medium-high gain discrete distortion, is a transistor-based circuit delivering gain tones with desirable amp-like sensitivity. It is capable of handling drop tunings and bass guitars, along with of course classic six-string sparkle and riffage.
The Zoar features six controls for Level, Weight, Gain, Bass, Middle, and Treble. Its interactivity begins with the Weight control, which dictates how much or little low end is passed into the circuit. This control chameleons the Zoar from a tight verge of breakup-style tone to sludgy, fuzzy fun.
Furthering the Zoar's tonal reach is a passive three-band EQ. For optimal dialing, it's recommended to start with treble, middle, and bass each set to 12:00/halfway, then altering the Weight control to set your desired style of gain, and finally adjusting EQ to taste.
The Zoar is powered by center negative power and is capable of handling up to 18v DC. This functionality absolutely expands the headroom and dynamic range of the Zoar, allowing for higher volume levels and a greater frequency spectrum.
Like all Earthquaker Devices creations, the all-analog Zoar is made by hand in Akron, OH and features silent relay-based switching with Flexi-Switch Technology, as well as a lifetime warranty.
In short, the Zoar can be dialed into nearly any drive application necessary, from lush to crush, or jangle to djent. We are as certain that the Zoar is totally insane as we are unsure if the word "djent" is still used in 2023.
