J Rockett have grown a reputation of making the impossible. For years people said the Gold Klon Centaur was impossible to clone but they did it with the Archer Ikon. Now they are back with their eyes set on a legendary amplifier. The Dude looks to replicate the sound of a classic 'Dumble ODS' style circuit but in a compact pedal format.
While the original ODS style amplifier sounds incredible for nearly any kind of clean or crunch tone it is the overdrive it is loved for. The tone from this amplifier is so crisp and clear even when cranked and layered with plenty of gain making it perfect for a wide range of styles. Its overdrive sound is not something that you will hear in hard rock or metal styles. But for blues rock artists like John Mayer, Larry Carlton and Joe Bonamassa it became a must have amplifier. With its crispy and not overly saturated tone it has a very natural sound with a moldable midrange. This pedal captures not only the same overdrive tone but the response of the amplifier as well. So the same luxurious overdrive found on so many records can be yours all without having to shell out thousands of pounds on a new amp. Simple to Use Using just four knobs you can take control of the overdrive channel of this classic amp styles pedal. Your independent level and ratio (gain) controls mean real amp response while the Treble and Deep controls are more sympathetic of each other for amp like control. You can set this pedal up like any other overdrive. Set the volume to taste and then dial in the right tasty tone that fits your guitar and amplifier. Works With Everything Previous efforts to make a 'Dumble in a box' style pedal have all had issues. The biggest issues we have seen is the way they respond to single coil pickups and the sweep of the controls. J. Rockett have gone to the ends of the earth to make sure that this is not the case with The Dude. You can use this amplifier with any gear without having to worry about the response.
