Discover a tonal masterpiece in the EarthQuaker Devices Plumes overdrive. Meticulously crafted, it revamps the classic lime-green circuit, opting for low-noise JFET OpAmps, offering robust signals, and lowering the noise floor. The internal power conversion to +/- 9v ensures a three-dimensional clarity and enhanced headroom. With an elevated input impedance of 10 megaohms, it delivers a powerful, clear signal with distinct bass, midrange, and bright top-end.
The Plumes introduces three clipping options for unparalleled versatility. Mode 1, featuring symmetrical clipping with light-emitting diodes, provides a crunchy, classic valve amp tone. Mode 2 transforms into a clean boost, removing soft clipping diodes, ideal for pushing your clean tone or enhancing a preamp's breakup. Mode 3 utilises an asymmetrical silicon diode arrangement, delivering a transparent tone with increased output and clean clarity akin to the stock screamer.
• Unique approach to a classic tube-like overdrive circuit - offers more headroom, lower noise and far better signal integrity
• Features 3 different clipping options: symmetrical LED, asymmetrical silicon and no diode OpAmp drive
• Re-imagined tone control - helps to sculpt low end, clear top end and focused midrange
• All-analog signal path
• Flexi-Switch™ - allows for momentary and traditional latching-style switching from a single footswitch
