    Well, if you're like me you have a cult like obsession with Earthquaker Devices. They are making some of the best pedals out there right now, and keep releasing more and more awesome stuff!

    I have the Hoof Fuzz, which is a great version of the Russian green muff with some extra tone shaping, the Bit Commander monophonic synth and looking to get the Dispatch Master. All awesome pedals, never tried one I didn't like.

    All built like freakin tanks too. Check out the demos by Pro Guitar Shop. As usual, Andy makes those things sound awesome.

    To the guys in Akon: please take my money!!

    Had a did not last long on the board and got returned. Found it truly underwhelming; I just couldn't coax a tone that I liked from the thing. Either way too much treble or too much mush. And with all the buttons,dials and toggles, it was more variations of treble and mush. Went entirely the other direction and got a Speaker Cranker; one knob. As a stand-alone dirt box, it's OK. But pair it with a fuzz or another dirt box, and hold on baby. This thing will push whatever dirt you have to the edge with more range and dimension. Funny thing is, EQD does not bill it as a boost pedal, but it sure acts like one.

    I like their modulation pedals. I gave the Dispatch Master and the Disaster Transport Jr. I think the Afterneath is next.

    Just picked up "The Depths" and it's such a cool sounding pedal. Definitely check out the demo by pro guitar shops I think it is on youtube. Aside from the depths they have a lot of gear I'd like to get.

    Three of the seven pedals on my board are Earthquaker. I couldn't be any happier with this company.

    I believe Afterneath will be my next pedal.

    I love their stuff. I currently own a Bit Commander, The Depths, and the Organizer. I may add an Arpanoid in the future.

    I ordered the Park Sound Fuzz that Earthquaker is reissuing. I'm totally excited to get it!

    Dispatch master! I love every sound I get out of it. I wish I had a dozen of them so I could have each one preset to a different sound. And one extra to leave on all the time.

    Dispatch Master and Hoof Reaper here. That is just the ultimate fuzz. I love it, and I almost always am an OD over fuzz guy. The Tone Reaper side just kills with a tele bridge pickup. Its THE pedal for a "ride the guitar volume" guy. The Hoof has amazing lead tone. The octave is great with the Hoof side, played in the neck pickup above the 10th fret. And combine the two sides and roll the guitar volume to about 5 and you can play metal. The Hoof Reaper rules!

    My gf got me the Tone Job for Xmas. It is amazing. It beat out the RC Booster for me because it's got 3-band active EQ instead of just treb and bass. I find boosting or cutting the mids super useful, especially with a Deluxe Reverb as it has no mid knob.
    It's knocked out a Sex Drive and a BB Preamp. It's my go to boost for solos for sure. The Sex Drive will be replaced eventually just because I love it so much.

    Right now I'm just running a Barber Compact Tone Press comp > Barber Gain Changer > Wampler Delay > EQD Tone Job. I might add a second OD but I really don't need it at the moment.

    My new Arpanoid came in the mail today.

    Multitudes of joy from running a Z Vex Fat Fuzz Factory into a Moog 12-Stage Phaser into the Arpanoid. Multitudes. Definitely not your typical, "always-on" effect.

    Anybody have a favorite setting or style in which they use the pedal?

    I've recently purchased their Tone Reaper fuzz and Grand Orbiter vibe/phaser pedals.
    Love 'em and trying really, really hard not to buy the Afterneath verb anytime soon to keep the CFO happy for the time being.
    Very nice, musical, useable tones through all setting ranges in these things!
    The Tone Reaper can go from slight grit to growl with just slight adjusments to your git's volume knob. It's a beautiful thing!

    I have the Dream Crusher fuzz. It's a spectacularly dynamic Fuzz Face clone. I've even used it as a dirty boost. My only issue is that it absolutely has to be first in the chain.

    Proud owner of a Hoof Reaper. Got it and a really nice BYOC Tri-boost off CL for $225. I think I did well.
