Guitar 2018 GEAR OF THE YEAR WINNER

EARTHQUAKER DEVICES WESTWOOD

• PRICE £185

• REVIEWED May 2018

• VISIT www.earthquakerdevices.com

It takes a lot to really stand out in the world of overdrive pedals, but the Earthquaker Devices Westwood did so in such a way that we simply had to dish out a rare 10/10 when we reviewed it. The Westwood takes the venerable Ibanez Tube Screamer as its starting point, but quickly puts most other green-pedal imitators in the shade. What the Westwood offers is a wonderfully flattering and subtle natural overdrive sound that compresses like a really good Tube Screamer should thanks to its superbly effective tonestack, but without colouring the EQ in any discernible way.

There are plenty of ‘transparent overdrives’ out there, but the Westwood is designed to be ‘translucent’ – and with its sweet, smooth and responsive sound, it’s one of the finest drive pedals on the market today.

WE SAID “Sweet, smooth and responsive, with a superbly effective tonestack: this is some sort of overdrive perfection.”
