The J Rockett Archer is a versatile overdrive pedal that goes from a slightly hot clean boost vibe through low gain sounds and into medium gain sounds that work great for both chord and single note lines.
The Clean Boost
While the gain is set to 0 you get a clean boost effect once the volume control passes unity (the same volume as your amp) which can then be molded with the treble control to fit your tone. This is perfect if you just want to add a little bit more volume into your circuit or push a slightly overdriven sound up a notch but that is not all that this pedal does.
This pedal is less like a 2 in one and more like a 3 in one pedal with the ability not only to offer great low gain and clean boost sounds but it can also go up into the mid gain realm with all the sustain and punch any blues / rock guitarist would need. Once the gain control has been taken past the halfway point you start to get into the crunchier sounds that make this pedal such a great value for money purchase.
Made To Last
The J Rockett Archer pedal has been made to withstand tours of punishment with a metal chassis that will keep it protected from all kinds of knocks it may get on the road. This pedal is also made from the best components possible and then put together in the USA. The Archer is going to last a long time on your pedalboard.
Here’s what J Rockett Audio Designs say about the Archer Boost / Overdrive Pedal
The Archer is sort of a 2 in one pedal. It can be used as just a clean boost by turning the gain all the way down. As you introduce gain it will attenuate the clean signal but there is a magical blend in between that you will find. Please experiment!!
