We're taking it all the way back to the beginning with reissues of our first CME Exclusives ever! Produced in collaboration with who else but Earthquaker Devices, the Dispatch Master V3 "Black & Blue" and Bit Commander V2 "Nofriendo" revive the aesthetics of our very first CME Exclusive pedals, reissued for the first time in a limited-edition, one-time-only bundle to celebrate our 30th year as the world's greatest guitar store!

Bit Commander V2 "Nofriendo" Reissue
The Bit Commander is a monophonic analog guitar synthesizer with four octaves of vintage square wave synth tones. Its no-nonsense interface makes it easy to add or subtract octaves to create a wide variety of sounds without having to dial in envelopes or oscillators. Ripping sub-octave thump, pulsing octave down, a lightly squared base tone and a swelling transformer based octave up all join together to make a single guitar sound like an army of olde tyme synths.

Dimensions: 4.75 x 2.50 x 2.25 in. (121 x 64 x 57 mm) with knobs
Current Draw: 25 mA
Input Impedance: 50 kΩ
Output Impedance: <500 Ω
Switching: This device is true bypass and uses electronic relay-based switching. Audio will not pass without power.


Dispatch Master V3 "Black & Blue" Reissue
The Dispatch Master is a hi-fi digital Delay & Reverb Device that combines independent delay and reverb effects into one space-saving enclosure, so you can keep deep ambient echoes (or just a quick slapback) on speed-dial. 

The best-selling EarthQuaker Devices pedal just got bester [sic] with new Flexi-Switch Technology! Want to dip into ambient delay and reverb sounds for just one note? Press and hold the footswitch for as long as you use the effect, release it when you’re finished, and resume your regularly scheduled dry sound. To use the Dispatch Master as a normal effects pedal, press the switch once to activate and again to bypass. 

Flexi-Switch Technology
This device features Flexi-Switch Technology! This relay-based, true bypass switching style allows you to simultaneously use momentary and latching style switching.
  • For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch once to activate the effect and then tap again to bypass.
  • For momentary operation, hold the footswitch down for as long as you’d like to use the effect. Once you release the switch the effect will be bypassed.

Since the switching is relay based, it requires power to pass signal.

Dimensions: 4.75 x 2.50 x 2.25 in. (121 x 64 x 57 mm) with knobs
Current Draw: 78 mA
Input Impedance: 1 MΩ
Output Impedance: <1 kΩ

The ’68 Customs have become an extremely popular amp series for guitarists who love classic Fender sounds along with toneful modifications that resonate with today’s players.

This Earthquaker Devices Hoof v2 Hybrid Fuzz comes in a CME exclusive Raw Metal & Brown finish!

Our flagship fuzz pedal can be found on thousands of pedalboards around the world and has rocked countless stages from stinky suburban basements to Madison Square Garden. Twice. 

The Hoof is loosely based on the classic green Russian fuzz circuit and features a hybrid Germanium/Silicon design, pairing maximum tone with maximum temperature stability not found in finicky and expensive vintage units. We hand-match our NOS Germanium transistors to exacting specifications for pedal-to-pedal consistency, taking the guesswork out of your fuzz purchase, and guaranteeing that your Hoof delivers the same smooth, natural, and harmonically-rich sustain as all your friends’ Hoofs. All your friends have Hoof fuzzes, right?

Earthquaker Devices Acapulco Gold v2 Power Amp Distortion White Sparkle & Gold

$129.00
This Earthquaker Devices Acapulco Gold v2 Power Amp Distortion comes in a CME exclusive White Sparkle & Gold finish!

The Acapulco Gold is a dirt-simple distortion Device modeled after the sound of a cranked vintage Model T amplifier, bringing the openness, clarity, and crunch that only a dimed tube amp can provide, at a fraction of the size, and without expensive maintenance costs!

Since tone is in the hands, we decided to keep the controls of the Acapulco Gold as simple as possible. The footswitch turns the pedal on and off, and the giant knob controls the output volume. That’s it. The rest is at your fingertips. Want less gain? Turn down your guitar’s volume knob. Need a darker rhythm tone? Roll back your guitar’s tone control. Easy, right?
