Made in the USA, the J. Rockett Audio Designs Archer OD/Boost is a versatile overdrive/boost pedal with incredible headroom and the ability to cut through any mix. Whether you need a great-sounding overdrive pedal or a pristine clean boost, the Archer OD/Boost is sure to deliver.

It sports three control knobs: Output, Treble and Gain. Controlling the overall volume, the Output knob is extremely powerful and drives fairly hard relatively early. Taking your top-end sound from dark to bright, the Treble control is perfect for creating midrange clarity. Max out the Gain for a heavy overdrive, or turn it all the way down and your output becomes the volume for all clean boost. Experiment with the settings and be careful with the output because this pedal can get loud! The Archer OD/Boost features buffered switching and is powered by either a 9V battery or an optional 9V power supply.

Perfect to boost my solos!


This pedal is exactly what I needed to push my amp into overdrive. Nice push on the mids to cut through the mix while taking my lead tone into a creamy, sustaining and screaming sound!



Fire. Yep. Try it


Solid. Always on pedal. Bump past 50% gain to active diodes.



Not quite up to the hype


First, let's agree that this pedal is build like a tank. Extraordinarily tough enclosure and obviously put together with a lot of care. On to the sound...well, it just is not anything special, regardless of price. It's got good transparency if that's what you are looking for but seems to only work well as a clean boost or in front of any already distorted amp. I bought this for low-to-medium gain in front of a clean amp and it was very disappointing in that application; not smooth, not dynamic, not at all inspiring to play. At higher gain settings it was raspy and a bit tubby sounding. On to other things.



Best !


Have purchased many overdrives and returned them soon after, none really added anything tothe sound I could already generate from my amp, this one does, its exceptional
