EarthQuaker Devices Acapulco Gold | Power Amp Distortion

Based On A Cranked Sunn Model T

Hey there, treasure hunters! Welcome to the Acapulco Gold Power Amp Distortion! The Acapulco Gold is a dirt-simple distortion Device modelled after the sound of a cranked vintage Model T amplifier, bringing the openness, clarity, and crunch that only a dimed valve amp can provide, at a fraction of the size, and without expensive maintenance costs!

Description

Since tone is in the hands, EarthQuaker Devices decided to keep the controls of the Acapulco Gold as simple as possible. The footswitch turns the pedal on and off, and the giant knob controls the output volume. That's it. The rest is at your fingertips. Want less gain? Turn down your guitar's volume knob. Need a darker rhythm tone? Roll back your guitar's tone control. Easy, right?

With your guitar's volume all the way up, the Acapulco Gold roars like a wide-open Model T on the verge of explosion. At just-barely-backed-off, the Gold becomes a raunchy overdrive. At minimum guitar volume settings, the Acapulco Gold delivers a hazy, Nashville-sounding spank to your tone.

How about this? If your guitar has separate volume and tone controls for each pickup and a three-way selector switch, this little one-knob banger becomes a three-channel tone monster at the flick of your wrist!

Each Acapulco Gold is made part-by-part, wire-by-wire, giant knob-by-giant knob with real, live humanimal hands in EQD's gilded manufactory located in gray olde Akron, Ohio USA.
