The Big John Pocket Rocket is a Vintage ‘Tube Screamer’ overdrive style effect. It’s the most conventional Big John Effect. The tones of Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Creedence Clearwater Revival, George Thorogood, The Meat Puppets, Nirvana, Candlebox, Live, and Eric Clapton (just to name a few) are all attainable using this pedal.
We upgraded the circuit of the best Tube Screamer out there (the original). This is the only one for which we had to print the circuitboard instead of using perfboard - otherwise it wouldn't fit in it's enclosure! We "Big John'd" it with the very best components, tough wiring and point-to-point soldered hardware.
Easy tweaking with Volume, Tone and Gain controls + a great extra "clipping mode" switch to add a slight touch of modern overdrive in asymmetrical mode. Be sure to check out the video!
