Summer NAMM2016: J. Rockett Audio Designs debuts new .45 Caliber Overdrive pedal
#SummerNAMM2016: J. Rockett debuts the latest addition to its Tour Series, the .45 Caliber Overdrive. The voicing of the .45 is based on the sound of a cranked 1962 JTM 45. If that tickles your fancy then read on for the full spec and description…
Official info below:
J. Rockett Audio Designs has announced the fourth product release of the long awaited Tour Series line. The “Tour Series” is comprised of all new products designed with the influence of a host of top Nashville and LA touring artists to address their needs on the road.
The collaboration continues with the release of the J. Rockett Audio Designs .45 Caliber Overdrive.
The new .45 Caliber is a pedal we have been asked to create for some time now. It is a recreation of the original 1962 JTM 45 sound, overdriven. The sonic influence came directly from the old Malcolm Young, brilliantly crunchy rhythm tones and the old Pete Townsend Live at Leeds, “face-melting” goodness! To achieve that sound seems like an easy task but this design proved to be quite a challenge. After a year or so we feel we have nailed it, not only in sound, but also in feel.
The .45 Caliber also takes advantage of the new “Speed Switch” system.
.45 Caliber features include:
4 controls: Loud, Gain, Bass, Treble
I/O jacks at the head of the pedal
9V DC operation with standard – tip and + sleeve
Approximately 4” x 2.30” in size
The .45 Caliber carries a $189.00 street price.
Look forward to more “Tour Series” pedals from J. Rockett in the months ahead. For more information visit the J. Rockett Audio Designs web site at www.rockettpedals.com.
