The special edition pedals highlight the artwork of legendary Cleveland artist Derek Hess

CLEVELAND (July 27, 2023) – The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and EarthQuaker Devices have teamed up again in collaboration of a second set of limited-edition guitar pedals. The pedals feature new and exclusive artwork from the legendary Cleveland artist, Derek Hess and come in a variety of colorways.

Sharing the common mission of using music as a mode of inspiration, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and EarthQuaker Devices are offering musicians a new series of pedals that have a unique sound and superb technology. With a mission to inspire a lifetime of musical adventures for all sonic explorers, every pedal is hand-built, hand-tested, and guaranteed for life.

The first pedal released, Special Cranker, will be available Saturday, July 29th at noon EST. With a limited number available, it is a unique superpowered overdrive pedal tailor-made for massive output and tube saturation. The 2-position diode selector switch takes you from silicon (brighter, modern response) to germanium (softer, rounder tone) in an instant with amp-pummeling distortion from the large output level and flexible tone control.

The second pedal in the collaboration will be released Saturday August 12th with an even more limited number available. There will be more limited releases from the collaboration during August and September.

“It was nice working with the Rock Hall on this project, it’s always fun to work with them,” said Derek Hess. “Also, it is a pleasure to work with a company like EarthQuaker Devices. They make a quality product, and it is an honor to have my work on their pedals.”

“EarthQuaker is proud to release another extra special limited edition pedal featuring artwork from iconic Cleveland artist Derek Hess,” said EarthQuaker Devices CEO Julie Robbins. “We are deeply grateful to the Rock Hall for the opportunity to collaborate and have a presence at the museum.”

Fans can expect to see additional releases from this series of Rock Hall X EarthQuaker Devices later this year. The RHxEQD pedals will also be available to Museum visitors in the Garage, allowing them to explore their personal sound in the Rock Hall before taking one home.

“We’re thrilled to partner with EarthQuaker Devices again and highlight the work of legendary Cleveland fine artist Derek Hess,” said Rock Hall President and CEO Greg Harris. “We are excited to give fans the chance to shred on a second set of limited-edition pedals.”
