Chicago Music Exchange Presents: The KugeScreamer Overdrive
Whatcha gonna do when CME’s first pedal runs wild on you?!?
Listen up, brother! Created in conjunction with Rigs of Dad and Keeley Electronics, CME’s first pedal, the Limited Edition CME Exclusive Kugescreamer, is a manly hunk of hot ’n’ heavy overdrive, slathered in bitchin’ art by John Clark Bailey Jr. and designed with one thing in mind.
As you’ll see in the Rigs of Dad-written description and manual, the control set features not one, but three tone knobs: Tone, More Tone, and Most Tone. Purists will say that “Tone” controls the gain, while “More Tone” controls the actual tone and “Most Tone” the volume, but let’s face it. They’re all tone.
The Kugescreamer also features “Hi/Lo” switching, but as Rigs of Dad says, “to be honest, I am not sure what this does, because I’ve been Hi most of my life.”
The Limited Edition CME Exclusive Kugescreamer is available only at Chicago Music Exchange while supplies last. A portion of the proceeds from every sale of the Limited Edition CME Exclusive Kugescreamer goes to Be Fido’s Friend, a Chicago-based animal advocacy and rescue organization dedicated to ending the canine homeless population.
