The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and EarthQuaker Devices Collab on Limited-Edition Pedals

The special edition pedals feature the artwork of Cleveland artist Anthony Zart and come in limited designs and colors.


The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has teamed up with EarthQuaker Devices (EQD), the Akron-based guitar pedal manufacturer for a collaboration that features a series of limited design and colorway guitar pedals.

The first pedal of the collaboration, Plumes, was released as an online exclusive item. With few still available, it is a unique, all-analog approach to a classic tube-like overdrive circuit offering 3 different clipping voices, loads of headroom and almost three-dimensional clarity that will push your amp over the edge.

The second pedal, the Hizumitas, is a Fuzz Sustainar originally designed for guitar player Wata from the legendary band Boris. The heavy distortion and smooth sustain, combined with an underlying grit was designed to offer unmatched clarity that is unsuspected a typically aggressive sounding pedal.

“Effect pedals are a massive part of guitar driven rock and roll,” said Rock Hall President and CEO Greg Harris. “Throughout the years, Inductees ranging from Jimi Hendrix to The Edge have relied on effects pedals to craft their own unique sound. Thanks to EarthQuaker Devices, we invite you to shred with us at home or inside the Museum’s Jam Room using our limited-edition guitar pedal.”

The pedals feature the hypnotizing artwork of Cleveland artist Anthony Zart. “Seeing a project like this one come to fruition — especially when collaborating with Northeast Ohio pedal manufacturer EarthQuaker Devices— is a very gratifying experience. Factor in an iconic museum? That’s icing on the cake” said Zart.
