J. Rockett Audio Designs Archer Boost/Overdrive Pedal

J. Rockett Audio Designs Archer Boost/Overdrive Pedal

Handbuilt Re-creation of the Iconic Silver Double-wide

The J. Rockett Archer is a high-headroom, “transparent” overdrive pedal packing coveted K-style harmonic saturation and plenty of clean output. Archer’s touch-preserving headroom and endless amp-pushing boost are the result of an internal charge pump that boosts its 9-volt operating voltage (battery or PSU) up to 18 volts. Reining in Archer’s interactive Gain and Treble controls yields a hard-won mid-gain crunch and velvety-smooth Gilmour lead tones. Whatever your gear, Archer remains extremely organic, responsive, and versatile — so whether you play singles and combos or humbuckers and stacks, the J. Rockett Archer plays nicely with all your guitars and amps.

Endless headroom and clarity

Whether you power it from a battery or standard 9-volt wall supply, Archer gives you tons of clean headroom and endless amp-driving potential. Internal circuitry boosts operating voltage up to 18 volts for expanded output and clarity, all without specialized converters or adapters.

Classic K-style tone shaping

This stunning re-creation of the iconic silver boost/OD gives you plenty of ways to shape your tone. Engaging the Archer’s Gain control introduces a sweet, harmonically rich mid-gain saturation. Rolling up the Treble takes you from a dark, nasal “squonk” to a midrange bark to a sparkling top-end chime.
