The Dude Boost/Overdrive Pedal from J. Rockett Audio Designs pays homage to the revered boutique guitar amps favored by Larry Carlton, Eric Johnson, Robben Ford, Joe Bonamassa, and many other top guitarists. The mythos surrounding these amps, handcrafted one at a time in California, centers around their inimitable tone and playing feel — and their astronomical prices. With its D-style “ODS” tone and feel, the Dude generates everything from transparent clean boost to scorching high gain while remaining highly responsive to your pick attack and guitar volume control — all in a guitar pedal that doesn’t require a mortgage to purchase!
The Dude has a simple, 4-knob layout that makes it easy to quickly whip up the killer tone for any musical scenario. Treble and Deep pots let you contour your highs and lows, while the Level knob controls overall output and Ratio lets you dial in instant parallel processing, blending your drive and unprocessed signals to taste. Guitarists at Sweetwater are a savvy crew; some of us have actually played a legendary ODS. We’re shocked and delighted at how close the Dude gets — especially considering its affordable price tag!
