Boutique pedal makers EarthQuaker Devices and drone metal impresarios Sunn O))) have gotten together to make a brand-new stompbox: the Life Pedal.

Life Metal, Sunn O)))'s audacious and critically acclaimed album released earlier this year, features the band's masterfully heavy riffs squalling with gain and massive low-end. The Life Pedal octave distortion and booster promises to give you those same tones in a limited-edition run of only 1,000 total units, with 200 being packaged with a special clear-vinyl pressing of Life Metal.

The Life Pedal's octave section comes first in the single chain and is built with Russian Germanium diodes, granting a powerful monophonic low-end to the incoming signal. The distortion circuit comes next, which uses tantalum capacitors to replicate the type of dark gain found in vintage, LM308-equipped "Whiteface" ProCo Rats. But to that classic double-silicon-diode design, it adds to two more clipping options—one wide-open and the second allowing a more compressed crunch. The last stage is the mosfet boost stage, which promises to not add any distortion of its own, but can of course make your amp howl.
