Earthquaker Devices: Disaster Transport Sr.

Earthquaker Devices: Disaster Transport Sr.

Throwback Thursday: EarthQuaker Day Clinic

This past August, Nick and I headed out to Akron, Ohio, the home of EarthQuaker Devices, for their annual celebration of all things EarthQuaker! This years EarthQuaker day was an absolute blast.

It wouldn't be an EarthQuaker event without the opportunity to do a clinic to show why I love them, and their work so much.

Fuzz Wars: Way Huge, Rabbit Hole FX, Rocket Surgeon, & Analogman

Two dudes, four fuzzes, you know what that means...fuzz wars! Although maybe it's not necessarily a "war" this time around, as these guys are all our friends, and I'm pretty sure they're all friends with each other. So this is more of a fuzz "friendly," or a scrimmage. Got to keep it positive! Either way, we got Way Huge, Rabbit Hole FX, Rocket Surgeon, and Analogman on deck! Nick and I switch off on guitar and bass so let's see how each fuzz compares.
