    Anyone have any experience with the MojoHandFX Rook overdrive?

    Got to hear one recently and holy moly.....adding it to my "have to have one day" list.

    Smokin and big and fat baby.

    I really want to try one of these! Sounds great in the clips, I wonder if it'll sound good with my El84 amps...

    I just purchased this pedal on a whim after hearing a clip or two and boy does it sound great. It's one of the best stacking pedals I've ever owned. It sounds amazing with another overdrive in front of it. For overdrives I currently have a Klon, Tim, Origional TS-808, and KOT 4 and the Rook is actually a better stand alone pedal than any of those with a British type amp. Out of all those pedals, the Rook would be the pedal I'd choose to take to a gig if I could only bring one pedal and I was plugging into a somewhat clean/barely broken up amp (with the Tim being a close second). The Rook is a great pedal at great price. Big thumbs up.

    The Rook sounded GREAT on my Marshall 18w clone that used EL84s.
    in the end, i sold it because i need something more high-gain.

    i miss that pedal!

    That's some high praise! Thank you. I'm glad that you're enjoying the pedal.

    Hey Brad, wasn't there some blind Youtube tast test where folks actually preferred the Rook to the Klon?

    It was just a straight-up shoutout kinda thing, but all of the comparisons have been favorable.

    That's the clip that caught my interest also. See if you can find a US retailer that will ship overseas. If you are looking for a killer overdrive/light distortion type pedal, you won't be sorry.
