EarthQuaker Devices and Yamaha Music Australia Announce Exclusive Australia Distribution Effective January 1, 2019.

AKRON, Ohio & Melbourne, Australia — EarthQuaker Devices, LLC and Yamaha Music have announced that effective January 1, 2019, Yamaha Music Australia will be the exclusive distributor of EarthQuaker Devices effects pedals in Australia.

EarthQuaker Devices was started in 2004 in Akron, Ohio, USA, by musician and entrepreneur Jamie Stillman. Since then, EarthQuaker Devices pedals have been used by artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Boris, the Mars Volta, Mono, CHON, Asai Kenichi, and the Black Keys. Each effects pedal is built by hand at EarthQuaker Devices’ workshop in Akron, Ohio, USA, by a team of passionate artists and musicians.

EarthQuaker Devices is honored to work beside Yamaha Music Australia, and to play a part in Yamaha’s 130-year history. We are excited to deliver innovative and creative effects pedals which live up to Yamaha’s philosophy of “Kandō,” and it is our hope to supply musicians with effects pedals of supreme audio quality, build quality, physical appearance, and performance.

Yamaha Music Australia Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Yamaha Corporation, is Australia’s leading importer of musical equipment, with many decades of experience distributing Yamaha, Vox, Steinberg, Paiste and more recently Line 6 and Ampeg products. EarthQuaker Devices is thrilled to join these legendary brands as we begin our partnership with Yamaha Music Australia.
