Second chance to grab a Sunn O))) Life Pedal

As used on their recent album Life Metal!

A second batch of The Sunn O))) Life Pedal is now on sale. Made in the collaboration with EarthQuaker Devices, the first edition was manufactured in June a limited run of 1000 and sold out within hours.

As heard on their Life Metal album (released earlier this year by Southern Lord), the LM308 helps “to capture the same rich, deeply saturated tones” from the group's sessions with Steve Albini. It features an aluminium enclosure, analogue octave blending, hand-picked components and three clipping options. Plus, the first 100 bought from Reverb come with a copy of the Life Metal LP.

The second run of the Sunn O))) Life Pedal is limited to 500 units.
