Earthquaker Devices | CME Exclusive One-Of-A-Kind Series
Here at CME, we like effects pedals as much as the next tone snoot. But it’s not just the sounds that a string of pedals can add to your guitar’s signal chain that we love; it’s everything: from the build quality of the circuits, themselves, to the chassis, to the controller configurations—including knobs, buttons, and switches—not to mention the color schemes and graphic designs that add to the pedals’ overall aesthetic. All of these factors are what make any musician’s pedalboard a visual—as well as sonic—work of art.
And that’s why we love pedals made by EarthQuaker Devices. The Akron, Ohio–based pedal manufacturer loves effects pedals so much that they make them one at a time, by hand, the hard way. Designed to be simple and user-friendly, EQD pedals supply loads of practical, useable, and musical sounds, making them a launchpad for sonic exploration and aural innovation. But, it’s not just the phenomenal sounds that make these pedals stand out—often, it’s the eye-catching graphic designs, color schemes, and controller configurations that make EQD pedals a step above your typical stompbox.
So, when our dear friends at EarthQuaker Devices approached us with a chance to get hundreds of one-of-a-kind pedals all at once, we jumped at it!
CME Exclusive One-off Editions
Now, you can make your EQD stompboxes stand out from the crowd of other pedals with the new CME Exclusive one-off editions of some of our favorite EQD pedals!
Known for pushing the envelope with forward-thinking and unique products, EQD often experiments with multiple colorways and external hardware components for their pedals before they decide on the version that will eventually go to market.
While EQD has been known to make exclusive runs for dealers (like CME) when a specific colorway is preferred by a certain store’s customer base, in order to offer as many custom colorways as EQD does, they have to experiment—a lot!—which results in a stockpile of one-off pedals.
Now, CME has started up an exclusive partnership with EQD to offer our customers unique, one-off editions of some of the most popular EarthQuaker Devices pedals—each of which will make a truly one-of-a-kind addition to any pedalboard! Each pedal is only available at Chicago Music Exchange, and will be listed individually—but, remember, when it’s gone, it’s gone!
