Formed in 2006 by session musicians, Jay Rockett and Chris Van Tassel, J. Rockett Audio Designs are AB Music’s boutique guitar pedal company of choice. In keeping with our efforts to carry products that are made in the USA, we are happy to share that J. Rockett is a California based (and maintained) company. We currently carry their Blue Note Overdrive, Archer Overdrive/Boost, Archer Ikon, the Dude (Dumble Overdrive), and their BOING Spring Reverb pedal. J. Rockett pedals are slick, durable, and incredibly easy to use. Their BOING Spring Reverb pedal, a recreation of the classic Deluxe Reverb, has only one knob!
So why haven’t you ever heard of J. Rockett Audio Designs? We’re sure you’ve heard of some of the artists who use them: Jeff Beck, Keith Urban, Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones), Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), Walter Becker (Steely Dan), and Matt Sorum (Gun N’ Roses), just to name a few!
And did we mention these pedals are extremely durable? J. Rockett manufactures pedals that will last a lifetime. There’s no reason to buy some knockoff pedal; a product of cheap, overseas labor, mass-produced and sold with a 30 day warranty. What happens when your mystery box stops working in a year? Who’s actually saving money?
Below are a few video demos that will show you just how amazing these pedals sound. If you decide you want one, give us a call!
