Geezer Butler Signature Pedal of Doom with dual VU switchable dual EQ and switchable drive.

A great bass distortion revolves around an EQ, a pre-determined structure to drive the right frequencies for the right track, to cut through or to sit back with rich depth right in your favourite pocket with your rhythm partner in crime. With this we looked no further than Geezer Butler and his use of dynamics in his songs that resonate as real today as they did when recorded.

The groove of the "Hand of Doom" with Geezer and Bill, the change in character makes that track what it is. So, what if you could control the pre-EQ of each drive with an active 5 band EQ? Giving you two separate tones with two individual drives that can be punched in at the desired moment to give you much needed boost in rich harmonics.

Given the revelation the making of "Pedal of Doom" forged in the deepest darkest depths of...Essex. Featuring an on-board transformer isolated Di output, with two switchable EQs. Dual VU meters that are designed to ensure your bass signal is balanced on the input and output of the signal path. Use of the Input meter to drive the EQ to the desired level dependant on the output of your instrument. The Output meter ensures the signal going back to your amp is as it goes in to avoid any unwanted gain jumps or in the opposite to ensure gain bumps when required.

Of course, the need to drive those sounds with rich harmonic distortion was a necessity of this pedal with the option to dial in just the right amount of gain for those moments that require the sound of Doom switchable when required.

The pedal finished to a high standard before presenting it to Geezer. The pedal was sent over to Geezer for his approval, not knowing what we had been working on, Geezer was blown away with the pedal and had some very kind words to say "this is without a doubt the best sounding and engineered pedal I have ever played and with my amp it truly has the sound of doom I live for."

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
