Description

Destructive Fuzz Device

The Earthquaker Devices Terminal is Earthquaker's take on the elusive vintage JAX fuzz. These units are increasingly hard to come by, and are better known by most of as the Shin-Ei Companion Fuzz. To remedy the original's lack of output and EQ, Earthquaker have taken the Companion Fuzz design three steps further, adding “Voice” and “Treble” controls, along with twenty stories’ worth of output volume to erect the Terminal.

The “Voice” control adjusts the Terminal’s midrange focus and overall frequency response. Clockwise you’ll hear vertigo-inducing upper mids with an almost nasal, cocked-wah quality. Counter-clockwise you’ll find enough low-mid thickness to make even your wildest Siamese Dreams come true.

The “Treble” knob controls the Terminal’s biting top end. This control is especially interactive with the “Voice” knob, so it’s anything but “set and forget.” At the low end of the dial, you’ll find muted, subdued fuzz tones that sit back in the mix and play nice. Crank it up, and you’ll hear searing blown-out buzzsaw treble sharp enough to cut glass.

The Terminal’s “Fuzz” control has a wide sweep for causing all sorts of mayhem. Keep the “Fuzz” low and you’ll find separated, spitty garage tones, and plenty of “satisfaction,” as the Terminal just wants to be your dog. Take the “Fuzz” all the way to the top floor, and you’ll hear a thick, searing grind with a unique attack envelope and loads of sustain. Between these three interactive controls, you’ll find a wide range of fuzz tones at your disposal.

The Terminal is true-bypass, uses archaic all-analog circuitry, and is built one-at-a-time by a team of basketball champions in rubbery Akron, Ohio, USA.

V2 Updates:

  • Silent relay-based switching

Controls:

  • Volume: Controls output volume level as you dial it clockwise
  • Voice: Clockwise for upper mids, counter clockwise for lower mids
  • Treble: Clockwise for more bite, counterclockwise for less
  • Fuzz: Clockwise for more blow outs, counterclockwise for less

Power:

Earthquaker pedals take a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1 mm negative center barrel. It is always recommended that pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies are used. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. Do not run at higher voltages!
