EarthQuaker Devices Avalanche Run

The EarthQuaker Devices Avalanche Run was developed with one goal in mind: to take the floating ambient tones of the Dispatch Master to the next level while still keeping it user friendly and refined. Taking you into the aural exploratorium without having to break open the user manual every time you want to open up your inner eye and get free is no easy task. EarthQuaker is using a high powered proprietary DSP platform to recreate all the characteristics of all their old favorite delay and reverb machines while still retaining a simple, yet flexible workspace. It has been a long time coming but well worth the wait! Enough small talk, let's talk about the pedal!

The Avalanche Run is a dreamy sonic discovery device with up to 2 seconds of delay time and a lush reverb. It features complete control over delay time, repeats, mix and voice (with the tone control), as well as control over the reverb length and mix. It can run in one of 3 different modes: Normal, Reverse and Swell. In "Normal" mode, the Avalanche Run functions as a straightforward delay and reverb. In "Reverse" mode, the delay line is in reverse and the reverb remains in normal mode. In "Swell" mode, the Avalanche Run reacts to your picking dynamics and adds a volume swell to the entire signal path much like manually raising and lowering the volume of your guitar.

The Avalanche Run features an expression jack that can be assigned to one of six different controls using the "EXP" selector switch. It also features Tap Tempo with six different ratios accessed via the "Ratio" selector switch. The Avalanche Run can also be run in "True Bypass" mode or "Buffered Bypass" mode for trails and features 5 different tail lengths including "Infinite" for lo-fi and continuously degrading pseudo-looping.

The Tap switch also has a few other cool secondary functions. While in Normal and Swell mode, you can send the Avalanche Run into self-oscillation by holding down the "Tap" footswitch. In Reverse, mode holding down the Tap switch will flip the delay back into Normal mode and return to Reverse mode once released!

Each and every Avalanche Run is completely assembled, wired and tested by total human beans in the tiny tundra town of Akron, Ohio.

Controls:

- Time: This controls the delay time and goes from 0ms to just under 2000ms.
- Repeats: Controls the regeneration of the delay, from zero repeats to near infinite.
- Tone Controls the tone for the delay line only. Roll off highs to the left, roll off lows to the right and get a flat response in the middle.
- Mix: The is the volume control for the delay line. This blends in the wet with dry until 1 o'clock, 1 o'clock to 3 o'clock boosts the wet signal over the dry and 3 o'clock up brings down dry until it is fully wet when all the way up.
- Expression Jack Assign Switch: Use this switch to map the expression jack to one of the assigned controls.
- Decay: Controls the reverb decay length
- R Mix: Controls the reverb mix
- Time: This takes over for the delay time control and is DRASTICALLY different than the interface control. Using the expression pedal to control the time will give you all kinds of wild effects that can not be achieved by turning the knob.
- Repeats: Controls the delay repeats
- D Mix: Controls the delay mix
- Toggle: This takes over for the toggle switch and will cross fade from forward delay in heel down position to reversedelay in toe down position.
- Decay: Controls the decay length of the reverb, short decay counterclockwise, long cavernous decay clockwise.
- Mix: This is the volume control for the reverb. Blends in the wet with dry until 1 O'clock, 1 O'clock to 3 O'clock boosts the wet signal over the dry and 3 O'clock up brings down dry until it is fully wet when all the way up.
- Ratio Selector Switch: Selects delay subdivisions when time is set by the "Tap" switch.
- 1/1- Quarter Note
- 3/4- Dotted 8th
- 2/3- Quarter Note Triplet
- 1/2- 8th Note
- 1/3- 8th Note Triplet
- 1/4- 16th Note
- Toggle Switch (Mode Selector): Both: This is the "standard" delay and reverb mode, Reverse: This is reverse delay mode with "standard" reverse, Swell: This is the volume swell mode

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Avalanche Run"
Overall: I received this pedal around a month ago. My rig is an LTD EC-256 w/ coil tap (always engaged) through a 150W Bugera British Bite 1960 Plexi clone w/ 4 EL34s and 3 ECC83s into a Crate 4x12. My chain is a PolyTune 2, TC Electronic Spark mini, Electro-Harmonix Soul Food, Earthquaker Devices Avalanche Run, and the Electro-Harmonix Freeze. The Avalanche Run can be intimidating. It has so many sounds and tones you can get from it. I find it best for me with .5 second delay, and dreamy, cave-like reverb. It literally does anything you would possibly need it to do. I like to turn my Soul Food off, with just the Spark for a light gain boost, and this pedal on, and natural harmonic on 5th (in open D, drop C# tuning) and then freeze it, and play over. It's good for cleans, light overdrive, tone freezes, anything. Truly versatile, and 100% worth the money. You'll never need to buy another delay/reverb unless you're stupid loaded with money. But for me, this is so much better than anything else on the market. ***It does take some time to learn the sounds you can make with it. My advice is to spend a solid hour or two going through everything you're going to be using it on (if you're in a band) and dial in the effects a little at a time. The knobs are all very touch sensitive. A slight hit or rub against the knob, moving it even one or two millimeters can change the whole dynamic of the effect. Make sure you take a picture with your phone or a piece tape with the settings written on it stuck to your board. Just be careful not to knock your levels off and you'll be good to go.
Style of Music: For this pedal specifically, I use it for easycore (clean parts and intros), and more emo/indie stuff like Into It. Over It., To
