J. Rockett Archer Overdrive Boost Pedal – JHS “Katniss” Mod
After working up several mods for the Klon KTR and EHX Soul Food, JHS Pedals was asked if they could mod the Rockett Archer as well. The answer is yes! JHS modded the Archer and added in the “Punch” switch which gives the Rocket Archer a little more of everything! Due to space limitations in the Archer pedal, we couldn’t fit the Tri-Gain toggle.
Katniss was a great archer, but even she needed a few extra tools in her quiver.
Rockett was the manufacturer of the KTR pedal and they’ve taken that knowledge a step further with the “Archer”. This pedal sounds not so much like the KTR but more earlier the hand-built version…..really remarkable. Smaller enclosure, built in the USA.
The Archer is sort of a 2 in one pedal. It can be used as just a clean boost by turning the gain all the way down. As you introduce gain it will attenuate the clean signal but there is a magical blend in between that you will find. Please experiment!!
The Archer is and boost/overdrive designed to simply cut through the mix with an astonishing mid-range chime, The Archer can be used as an exquisite clean boost or a thick and chewy OD. The magic in the Archer is within the mix of the gain and the clean boost to create a very sought after signature sound and feel. The Archer circuit is an extremely high headroom design operating at 18v.
