Description & Specs

We’re back with the second installment of our retro themed slider laden stomp boxes - the Commodore Overdrive! Inspired by another one of our all-time favorites, the classic Marshall BluesBreaker and crossbred with our beloved Imperial MKII, we are excited to present you with this wonderfully versatile and natural sounding drive. 

So, what is the Marshall BluesBreaker and what makes it so awesome? The Marshall BluesBreaker was released in the early 90’s alongside the ShredMaster and DriveMaster ped-als. Offered in the large black box format, it was aimed at capturing the crunch and breakup of the earlier model 1962 JTM45 based combo amp famously dubbed the Bluesbreaker after be-ing used by Eric Clapton during his time with John Mayall and the Blues Breakers. The pedal offered a beautiful and natural sounding overdrive and has since become a favorite amongst builders and players alike, with original units now fetching close to 4 figures. 

The Commodore offers a fresh spin on an old-school heavyweight by mating a specially tuned, low to mid-gain BB style drive circuit with the super sculpting output section of our Imperial MkII. Carefully selected component values and asymmetric clipping offer an organic and natu-ral sounding drive ranging from sweet and mellow to hot and spicy, while the Tone and Con-tour sliders allow you to dial in anything from black panel spank to Vox-ey chime and British growl.

Set the Drive down low for tone sculpting or boost applications or crank it up for some extra sizzle. Use the Tone and Contour sliders to accentuate or scoop your highs, mids or lows and stack it with other fuzzes or drives for extra flavor and variety. You can power it from any standard negative center 9 V DC power supply or up the voltage to 18 V DC for extra headroom. No, we’re not your parents and so we’re not here to tell you what to do, but trust us when we say as this pedal contains so much sonic goodness, maybe you should just leave it always on? Your tone will thank you!

Finally, the Commodore package is complete with dual LED indicators, top jacks, true-bypass switching and of course, our retro sliders with vintage inspired artwork.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
