Zvex Vexter Double RockRegular price $238.00
This pedal was originally designed for J.Mascis. He requested two Box of Rock pedals in one box with two stomp switches. He uses it regularly now, but we did one (or two) better with the one we’re releasing to the public... we made it so you can adjust the sub frequencies (like the Distortron), and you can convert either channel to a Super Hard-On. In this way, you can configure the pedal to be two Distortrons cascaded, two Super Hard-Ons cascaded (like a Super Duper 2-in-1), or a Box of Rock with boost, or a Super Hard-On going into a Box of Rock. Distortion/boost heaven!
I recommend that you try the Double Rock last in your pedal chain, just before the amp. You can set the amp for your favorite clean tone, and set the Double Rock for your favorite distortion/boost tones. Since you can change the first or second stomp switches to either a Distortron or Super Hard-On (SHO), you can mix and match the two to experience different results... SHO before the Distortron will give you more sustain, while after will give you more amp volume (or drive, if you use a distorted amp sound.) Of course, you can use the pedal the way J. Mascis intended by going Distortron into Distortron or get Super Duper 2-in-1 tones by cascading the SHOs. If you have other distortion pedals, don’t leave them in the closet! Many distortion pedals sound amazing into the Double Rock. You may discover a whole new love for your old distortion pedal collection! The best way to complete this pedal is to run it through a JTM45 Marshall amplifier head/cabinet on a warm clean setting (try strapping the channels, setting the volumes below 3, and setting all other controls to 6 as a start point.)
