Acapulco Gold

When it’s really good, one knob is enough! 

We just love the fact Earthquaker Devices equipped their Acapulco Gold distortion with one knob only – a volume knob. So simplistic, so good. Just plug in your guitar, choose your favourite amplifier, enable the Acapulco and rock hard.

The Earthquaker Deviced Acapulco Gold is based on a fully cranked Sunn Model T amplifier, therefore it really does not need anything but a volume knob. The sound you get is a healthy, clear and broad kind of distortion which makes you want to hit the guitar harder and harder. It has immense amounts of sustain and a heavy tone when the guitar’s volume knob is set to maximum, but once you lower your guitar’s output, the Acapulco Gold becomes more transparent and subtle.

The Earthquaker Devices Acapulco Gold is an all-analog beast, truck, tank… a great distortion pedal!
