Earthquaker Devices Westwood

For the blog's 600th layout, here's a new one that didn't take long to get traced. Here's EQD's newest offering, the Westwood Translucent Drive Manipulator. Great for pushing your amp and giving a near clean boost. It features an active 2-band EQ and sounds great on bass as well as guitar.

  6. For some reason gain pot doesn't do anything for me. The pedal works, and it sounds awesome, but gain seems to be maxed no, matter where gain pot is at. Any hints/pointers where to start looking at?

    1. Sounds like you might have a short or a bad pot...

    1. Probably film. One of the grey box film caps from Tayda will fit perfectly in there.
