Earthquaker Devices - 'Life' V2
Distortion/Octave Up/Booster

EarthQuaker Life Pedal SunnO)))

'MAXIMUM VOLUME YIELDS MAXIMUM RESULTS'Introducing the fearsome ‘Life’ V2 pedal from Earthquaker Devices.

The intimidating and infamous SunnO))) teamed up with the guys at Earthquaker Devices to design an earth-shattering Distortion/Octaver/Booster, in a compact, pedalboard-suited version of the earlier ‘Life’ distortion. The ‘Life’ V2 utilises the very same circuit as the insanely popular, super-limited run V1 which released in early 2019 to a rapturous response, with the added feature of expression pedal control over the octave blend and Flexi-Switch Technology on the relay-based true bypass footswitches.

Earthquaker themselves had this to say...'Chasms are cleared, mountains sheared, glaciers calved, novæ birthed. Vintage valve amplifiers recommended. We hope you transcend.'

Limited to only 2500 units!

Instant Earth-Shaking SunnO))) Tones

EarthQuaker Life Pedal SunnO)))

3 Different Clipping Options Earthquaker Devices ‘Life’ pedal is a crushing distortion with a blendable analogue octave up and booster combined in one compact, tidy package, with fantastic graphics on the face panel. The Life pedals ‘Amplitude’ side is a fantastically faithful modelling of the classic ‘White Face’ distortion, even down to the LM308 IC and tantalum caps.

The only modification from the original is a slight tweak to the clipping section. The original circuit utilises a single pair of silicon diodes for an incredibly tight and compressed crunch. The ‘Life’ V2 brings forth two additional clipping options to make the V2 more adaptable and accommodating of different rigs. The first position is no diodes, which allows for a brutal, full and grinding Op Amp assault at nothing short at maximum volume.

The second position utilises a pair of silicon dioes and one LED in an asymmetrical clipping pattern. This delivers a slightly compressed and smooth crunch, similar to the break up you’d expect from a valve amplifier when cranked. The final position is the stock dual silicon diode configuration which delivers the classic tone you know and adore.

Full & Varied Octaver

EarthQuaker Life Pedal SunnO)))

Use octave functionality with Expression Pedal! The Life V2’s ‘Octave’ section is an all-discrete, analogue full-wave rectifier circuit, built around dual Russian Germanium diodes. Placed at the input of the circuit, the Octave control slowly, and precisely blends in the octave sound as you rotate clockwise.

One of the most exciting things about the Life V2 is the inclusion of the functionality to be able to control this via expression pedal control which is going to open up a whole avenue of fun for crazy, hands-free octave swells. As the Life V2 is an analogue octave effect, its functions monophonic and is best played with single notes above the 12th fret using your guitars neck pickup.

Playing chords with the octave on will result in chaotic and ‘clanging’ sounds, perhaps useful for some! Switching to the bridge pickup and playing below the 12th fret will result in an ever-so slightly subtle octave effect. Try turning the octave all the way and witness the Life V2 morph from a simple distortion pedal into a raging, brutal fuzz.

Taking Control of 'Life' V2

Amplitude Output volume for the octave distortion side. Clockwise for more hearing loss, counterclockwise for a healthy life in old age.

Filter This is a low pass filter with a frequency response from around 500Hz to 30kHz. Turn counterclockwise for more high end, clockwise for less.

Distortion Turn clockwise for more distortion, counterclockwise for less. This provides about +60dB of gain.

Magnitude This is the output volume for the booster. Clockwise to blow up your amp, counterclockwise if you are a baby. Unity is somewhere right around noon on the dial.

Octave This blends in the analog octave as your turn it clockwise.

Left Switch Boost Activator

Clipping Switch OpAmp - No diodes to allow for full, grinding Op Amp assault at maximum volume.
Asymm - Utilizes two silicon diodes and one LED in an asymmetrical clipping configuration. This delivers a slightly compressed and smooth crunch, similar to a valve amplifier.
Symm - This is the stock double silicon diode configuration which provides that classic tone you know and love.
