Like the original Archer pedal, the J. Rockett Audio Designs Archer Clean re-creates the magic of that 1990s-era overdrive with the rabid cult following. But the Archer Clean dials back the gain. This means that you can inject your playing with the Archer’s mythological midrange while keeping your signal clean. That said, the Archer Clean is more versatile than you’d think. With it, you can goose your amp with a transparent boost or adjust its Color knob for more character. You can use the Archer Clean subtly or crank its Output to slam the front end of your amp — the choice is yours. If you’re looking for a magical tonal bullet, the Archer Clean might be just what you’re craving.
Achieve legendary Archer tone without the extra gain The Archer Clean is based on J. RAD’s original Archer; however, by reducing the slam on its diodes, it delivers bell-like cleans rather than transparent overdriven tones. At Sweetwater, we’ve found that operating it is sheer simplicity, thanks to its straightforward 3-knob layout. The Output knob controls its volume level. Treble takes your tone from dark to bright. Color controls the amount of midrange and can add a small amount of gain when used in conjunction with the Output knob. One thing’s for certain: the Archer Clean is a surefire way to add character to an otherwise dull-sounding amp. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!
