The Jeff Archer from J. Rockett Audio Designs is a limited-edition version of the company’s massively popular high-headroom “transparent” overdrive pedal. This stompbox still features the coveted K-style harmonic saturation of the J. Rockett’s original unit, but it ups the ante by replacing some key components, including the germanium diodes, with vintage NOS variants. These are the same mods on legendary guitarist Jeff Beck’s unit, and you can hear the Jeff Archer all over his 2016 album, Loud Hailer, and live with his current touring board. The Jeff Archer is organic, responsive, and versatile, with a smooth and sweet top-end response that sounds magnificent through a wah pedal. Guitarists at Sweetwater have found that the Jeff Archer pairs well with any number of guitars and amps, from single-coils and small combos to overwound humbuckers and British-style stacks!
