Rockett Pedals Archer Boost Overdrive Pedal
The Archer Boost appeared on our recommended list for Overdrive Pedals as an Honorable Mention from January 2018 until February 2020.
The Rockett Pedals Archer Boost Overdrive is based off the famed Klon Centaur. Like its basis, it is a very clear and transparent sounding pedal, which is great if you’re looking for an overdrive that will allow the natural tone of your instrument to shine through.
An interesting feature of this pedal is that it can also be used as a clean boost. When you turn down the gain all the way down it removes distortion from the circuit all together, which is great if you’re looking to push the gain on a tube amp or boost your volume for solos.
An important feature of this pedal is that it has a more limited EQ than some of the other overdrives on this list, only boosting/cutting treble frequencies. However, this can be accounted for through the tone controls on your amp and guitar.
