Earthquaker is not, generally speaking, trying to make the effects we're all familiar with. While they make things like Overdrive, delay, reverb, and etc... there is usually some kind of Earthquaker twist. The Data Corruptor is a sort of fuzz/synth/oscillation/monophonic mayhem creator. While it may not be the most practical pedal for the average blues band, or more traditional players, for someone who wants to bring a massive, unusual element into their playing, this could be the pedal. While the sounds are all kinds of crazy, there is so much control with this pedal that it never feels like your playing is being replaced by a machine. As neat as some of those random glitch pedals are, I prefer pedals like this where you are in charge of the madness. Just listen to some demos online, and if you think this sound is intriguing, give it a try. If it sounds too weird for you, it probably is. Earthquaker has so many rad pedals, I find it very hard to choose, but this is definitely one of my favorites.
