It's kind of bizarre and I really don't get the phenomenon... I swear more people call it a Box of Rocks than a Box of Rock. 'Sup with that?

What's "Rock"? Is that some kind of new music or something? What have i been missing here?
Seriously though, hope you enjoy the pedal SteveG.

When I read the title I thought of a Craigslist personal ad:moon. Sorry, I'm usually more tasteful than this but I've been cooped up in the house all week:). But seriously, is everyone here an English teacher or something? Give the guy a break, he just got a great pedal. I throw peanuts at you from my gallery:moon! Kidding, of course. Hey Steve, congrats! What amp are you running it through? I ask because the ZVEX website suggests it's best when run through a Marshall. I've always been curious about what the exact differences would be if you could a/b the pedal with say a Fender and a Marshall.

I'm happy that Steve got one, believe me - I enjoyed the pedal when I had one! And hopefully, in a later post, he can tell us if he liked it or not.
It's just become a pet peeve of mine over the past year as everyone keeps calling it a Box of Rocks. Sorry if anyone got offended.

Welcome to the BoR Club :)

You are going to love it, when I kicked it on into my JCM800 it literally gave me another amp, being the 2205's are sort of a 2 trick pony this added another layer into the mix, the boost is awesome too.

Zack don't forget, Make the "Box of Tape" echo pedal :)

I've been thinking about getting Box of Rock, Will it do the Marshall low gain JTM45 thing?
slow.
Hells yea.
In fact, I thought it excelled at the lower gain end of the spectrum. Warm, dynamic, thick, and clear. Not as authentic sounding as my Menatone WMB, but in the ballpark and an excellent sounding pedal in its own right!
