The limited-edition CME Exclusive Kugescreamer overdrive features exclusive art by John Clark Bailey Jr. and a three-knob design.

Chicago, IL (March 19, 2020) -- The Chicago Music Exchange releases its first pedal: the Kugescreamer. Created in conjunction with Rigs of Dad and Keeley Electronics, the Limited Edition CME Exclusive Kugescreamer overdrive features exclusive art by John Clark Bailey Jr. and a three-knob design that favors one thing and one thing only: tone.

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. Tone controls the gain, while More Tone controls the actual tone, and Most Tone the volume. The Kugescreamer also features “Hi/Lo” switching for high- and low-gain operation.

The Limited Edition CME Exclusive Kugescreamer is available only at Chicago Music Exchange while supplies last for $149. 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.

To purchase, call 1-773-525-7773, visit, or stop by the Chicago Music Exchange showroom located at 3316 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60657.

Taylor 724ce

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.
