Youtube trawl #1: J Rockett Audio

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or have they done some seriously nice overdrives in the last few years?

I started out with the Animal OD which is supposed to emulate a 68 plexi and was impressed.

I was getting a load of ACDC and then other pedals started popping up in my feed.  Like this Dumble clone they made called 'The Dude' lol

Then came their version of a Fender Tweed

Check out Start Me up at 0.24 in.  I thought this was full of Tweed flavour but I wasn't getting as much nuance as I was from the Marshall pedals.

Finally...the HRM, Hot Rubber Monkey - supposedly an emulation of a tone circuit that Dumble put inside Marshall amps.  There I was thinking he mainly worked on Fenders but anyway, I'm not sold on The Dumble Tone by any means.  But this pedal sounds gloriously thick and spongy with a nice bite in the midrange.  Sort of a Steely Dan thing going on there (edit: just found that Jay Greedon was a Dumble ODS user!)  Anyways, seriously gassing after one now.

Have you guys tried any IRL?

The tone of that HRM in the intro section is lovely. J Rockett Audio are a new one on me, but I don’t follow guitar pedals the way I once did, but the Dumble tone does it for me (spot the Robben Ford/Eric Johnson fan). I made a Zendrive clone which does a pretty good emulation of Mad Alex’s Fender style amps. These days, I’m into the tone of the Suhr Riot (spot the Dave Kilminster/Lari Basilio fan) but, as a bedroom guitar player these days, buying an actual Riot seems excessive - step up the Joyo USdream!

How about setting up your own trawl?  How did you get to the Suhr Riot and then the US Dream?
