Listed on German retailer Thomann this morning (24 February), the four overdrive pedal reissues – Blues Breaker, Shredmaster, Guv’nor and Drivemaster – are now available for purchase, although not yet available on Marshall’s website.
All available for £160, the four units are described as “authentic reissues” of their original predecessors and expected to ship at the beginning of March.
True to the original designs, the Blues Breaker pedal comes with Gain, Tone and Volume controls, along with an LED effect and a Bypass footswitch.
The same can be said of the three other launches, with the Shredmaster coming with Gain, Bass, Contour, Treble, and Volume controls; the Drivemaster with Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble and Volume; and The Gov’nor with Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble and Level – as well as I/O and Loop connections.
At the time of writing, the new reissues have yet to be made available on Marshall’s website. However, the manufacturer did tease the new launch on its social media platforms.
Yesterday (23 February), the brand took to Instagram to share a shadowed-out image of the pedals, along with the caption “The wait is almost over. 24 Feb 23”.
The announcement follows a series of online leaks that emerged throughout February, including an image of the Blues Breaker unit on Instagram and footage of all four new units from YouTube channel, Pedal Pawn.
In a statement made to Guitar.com, Marshall previously denied the existence of the pedals, insisting that the image leaked on @luca.guitar’s Instagram page was unofficial. “As much as I love the idea I’m afraid it’s not official and isn’t true,” a spokesperson told us.
