Ready to cook some tubes? Then put the EarthQuaker Devices Plumes between your guitar and amp. Armed with JFET op-amps, this high-headroom OD is chock-full of chime and clarity. Three different modes enable you to inject grind into your playing with symmetrical LED clipping, goose your amp with a wide-open op-amp clean boost, or give yourself a transparent dirty boost with asymmetrical silicon diode clipping. And once you dial in your clipping voice, you can mold it to perfection with a fine-tuned Tone control. What’s more, EarthQuaker Devices’ Flexi-Switch enables you to use momentary- and latching-style switching simultaneously. If you want your amp to sing with well-sculpted lows, focused mids, and ultra-clear highs, Plumes is your one-way ticket to tonal nirvana.

This ain’t your father’s green overdrive pedal

Plumes is green. It’s an overdrive. But it’s not another direct clone of the oft-duplicated pedal guitarists far and wide are familiar with — for many reasons. First of all, Plumes eschews the typical JRC4558 circuit and bipolar transistor buffers for JFET op-amps. It also raises the input impedance to nearly 10 megaohms. Plumes is powered by internally converting its 9-volt input to +/- 9 volts. All in all, Plumes offers lower noise and improved signal integrity over its predecessor, along with increased headroom, extra dimensionality, and added clarity. It also imparts a healthy dose of compression with truckloads of sustain.

EarthQuaker Devices Plumes Features:
  • JFET op-amp-based overdrive with loads of headroom, chime, and clarity
  • Makes a dirty amp sing with well-sculpted lows, focused mids, and ultra-clear highs
  • Symmetrical LED clipping mode injects grind into your playing
  • Wide-open op-amp clean boost pushes a clean amp into restrained breakup
  • Asymmetrical silicon diode clipping produces a familiar yet transparent dirty boost
  • Fine-tuned Tone knob is useful throughout its entire range
  • Flexi-Switch enables the use of momentary- and latching-style switching simultaneously
