Overdrive effects pedal (TOUR SERIES)
The new .45 Caliber is a pedal Rockett 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 Rockett feel they have nailed it, not only in sound, but also in feel.
J. Rockett Audio Designs was formed by: Chris Van Tassel and Jay Rockett in 2006. Both Jay and Chris had been long time session musicians with many years of experience in the recording industry. After years of dissatisfaction with available products both Chris and Jay decided to try and create products that satisfied their particular needs for tone. Many top session players were consulted in their designs to create the current line of products.
