After hearing about this Boost on another thread I contacted Jay Rockett and had an email discussion about the Rockett Boost. I was so impressed with the product concept and Jay's enthusiasm I had to get on the list for one. I am told that the top is Copper plated with the bottom in Black Powdercoat so thats going to look cool as hell. Here is an excerpt of some of the info Jay sent me...... "It combines things that have not yet been used in the guitar world. This circuit incorporates multiple acoustic JFET preamps used in multiple ways and various cascading layers to create everything from a very transparent clean boost all the way to a sledge hammer hitting the front end of the amp. All of this while producing clarity and your choice of 36 different tonal configurations. With the help of some engineering Gurus we were able to produce innards, design, and layout that rival that of the highest grade hi fi world of components. I like to think of it as a shaper of tone. It can thicken your tone, thin your tone, give it more clarity, boost your tone, make things fatter, and it is so transparent you can actually set it to a perfection point if you will, where you CANNOT tell it's on! Then take it from that point and adjust to your liking. If you get bored, flip a switch and your in a new tone land with variable gain stages. This pedal is really designed to be the first pedal in the chain. I used to cascade many pedals into each other to get my tone. Sometimes I still do, but I use this pedal in front of anything and everything and I'm not kidding when I say it makes EVERY pedal in the chain sound better. Treble Boost: Can function as treble booster pedal. It's absolute magic at producing clarity and presence to solos with guitars that have a ton of bottom, or when using amps that get bloated sounding when slammed hard. Our clean boost is simply that a "clean boost" so that you can take the sound you have and boost it without affecting the overall tone, however, once again you have choices of various gain stages to play with. The Fat Boost is a MILD over drive that pushes your amp with whatever tone you want. You will not hear compression or loss of treble, you just hear more balls!! Our line buffer is a great feature but some do not require it or need it that is why we made ours selectable. We do realize that as the pedal addiction takes hold that down the line those who do not require a line buffer will soon find out that with 35 pedals in a row .they need it!! The Dark/Bright Switch gives you variety to add to any of your chosen tones. It will sparkle things up a or take a the edge off and at the same time fatten it up a bit very subtle either way. Now with all of the main functions in place what we have is the ability to tailor these functions to our tastes. 1. Lean/Idle/Rich - 3 way switch (Toggle Switch at left) 2. Black Hole/Super Nova (Toggle Switch in the middle) 3. Gravity/Weightless (Toggle Switch at right) 4. Buffer on/off switch (Toggle Top Middle) 5. Volume or Level Knob 6. Tone I offer some upgrades within the pedal wiring with some killer cryo wire by Jena Labs and Quad eutectic solders. Really makes a difference but the stuff is STUPID expensive. But then again it's out tone right!" I normally don't jump in this quick on a new product but couldnt resist. Expect a full review when I get this in my hands.
