Description & Specs

From Earthquaker:

Built upon the same proprietary DSP architecture as the smash-hit Avalanche Run, Pyramids is a Stereo Flanging Device with five user-definable presets (a first for any EarthQuaker Devices pedal!), eight flanger modes, tap tempo, tap subdivision via the Rate & Tap mini-toggle, a multifunction Modify control, positive and negative feedback, and a variable Mix control, which is something you don't see on a flanger every day.

The Pyramids footswitch features EarthQuaker Devices exclusive Flexi-Switch technology. This relay-based true-bypass switching platform allows for momentary or latching operation, making it easier than ever to engage the effect to bedazzle individual notes or phrases! For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch to activate the effect and tap again to bypass. For momentary operation, simply hold down the footswitch for as long as you'd like to use the effect. Release the footswitch to bypass.


Pyramids eight flanger modes are:

Classic: Delivers the classic (duh) jet-plane liquid-silk flanging sound we all know and love. In this mode, Pyramids recreates the studio-quality sounds of old-school ADT (automatic double tracking) as heard on timeless recordings by those fabulous mop-tops from England (you know which ones) and on the most ripping double-tracked riffs to come from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.

Through-Zero: provides authentic tape-style flanging without all the calibration, biasing, demagnetizing of heads, and so on that a real tape machine - two of 'em, actually - requires. Use Through-Zero Mode to achieve intensified, swirling, dramatic phase cancellation and comb-filtering effects in stereo!

Barber Pole Up: infinitely sweeping upward flanging effect with no discernable beginning, middle, or end creating an "endless circular staircase" effect derived from the Shephard Tone auditory illusion popularized in television, video games, and film.

Barber Pole Down: infinitely sweeping downward flanging effect with no discernable beginning, middle, or end creating an "endless circular staircase" effect derived from the Shephard Tone auditory illusion popularized in television, video games, and film.

Trigger Up: In this mode, Pyramids provides an infinitely upward sweeping flanger that restarts the flange cycle with each new pick attack or by pressing the Tap/Trigger footswitch.

Trigger Down: In this mode, Pyramids provides an infinitely downward sweeping flanger that restarts the flange cycle with each new pick attack or by pressing the Tap/Trigger footswitch.

Step: sweeps up and down in stepped increments, producing a rhythmic flange effect similar to an arpeggiator and/or sequencer on a synth instrument.

Random: sweeps up and down in random intervals, creating a chaotic flange effect similar to a synthesizer or envelope filter's "sample & hold" function.


To accommodate any input source, Pyramids includes stereo input and outputs which allow for a variety of routing options onstage or in the studio. Routing possibilities include:
  • Mono in / Mono out
  • Mono in / Stereo out
  • Stereo in / Stereo out


In addition, Pyramids Trigger Up/Down modes allow for Side Chain Flanging, in which an external control source (drum machine, sequencer, CV) may be used to trigger the flanger while you play another instrument! In this configuration, the primary instrument is routed through the Right Input and Right Output while the control source is patched into the Left Input. Also, Pyramids Manual control may be modulated in all modes via expression pedal (sold separately).

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
