EarthQuaker Devices Special Cranker Overdrive Pedal

In contrast to the EarthQuaker Devices stripped-down Speaker Cranker, the Special Cranker boasts an expanded control set for improved command over the pedal's sound and response. The More knob makes its triumphant return in the Special Cranker, adjusting the bias of the transistor to dial in varying levels of saturation. Standard Level and Tone controls let you dial in the perfect volume while adjusting treble frequencies, respectively. Where the Special Cranker truly shines is through its diode selector switch, offering the original silicon diode voicing as well as a distinct germanium option — with versatility and tonal possibilities like this, it's no surprise that more than a few Sweetwater shredders turn to EQD for all their pedal needs.

EarthQuaker Devices Special Cranker Overdrive Pedal Features:

  • Analog overdrive pedal boosts your signal without muddying or coloring your natural tone
  • Level control adjusts overall output; nearly double the original model
  • More knob takes you from subtle dirt to amp-pummeling distortion
  • Tone control tames and adds high frequencies when necessary
  • 2-position diode selector switch takes you from silicon (brighter, modern response) to germanium (softer, rounder tone) in an instant
  • True Bypass operation always preserves your tone
  • Silent Flexi-Switch allows for momentary and latching-style switching in the same pedal
