The Acapulco Gold is a dirt-simple distortion Device based on the power section of a cranked vintage Sunn Model T, bringing the openness, clarity, and crunch that only a dimed tube amp can provide. Armed with a single control, known as the Big Knob, players can set their output level from a mild boost to a dangerously loud roar.

The volume knob on your guitar cleans up the pedal nicely, but not too clean. At minimum guitar volume settings, the Gold imparts a hazy, Nashville-sounding spank to your tone. At just-barely-backed-off, the Gold turns into a raunchy overdrive. And of course when the guitar volume is completely open, the Gold roars like a Sunn Model T on the verge of explosion. It's not quite fuzz, but very close.

The Earthquaker Acapulco Gold pedal employs a standard 9 volt DC power supply (not included) with a 2.1mm negative center barrel.

Distorted Loudness!


(Using it on bass) They were not kidding that this little box is loud! Anything past 12 o'clock and expect it to rumble your place. Love the tone it gives my bass, even around 9 o'clock it gives it a sweet sound and love to stack it with either my fuzz pedal or overdrive pedal and a spring reverb for a nice surf punk sound. For a single knob pedal, its one of the best for sure, if you love your music loud, this one is definitely for you!



Fat Knob


Excellent pedal. The tone is mouthwateringly good, I cannot begin to quantify the amount of joy and fun I have with this thing. Get it.
