Built entirely in the USA from the best quality components these are truly great pedals at very reasonable prices. The current pedal range is listed below, with more effects available soon. All the pedals are now in stock.

THE FLEX DRIVE.

The Flex Drive is Rockett's most versatile overdrive of the bunch. "This was our attempt to achieve the Malcolm sound which is one of our favorite rhythm tones ever. However, the Flex Drive will get you all the way to VH-2 which happens to be one of our favorite lead tones ever. Luckily enough all of the tones in between can achieve amazing blues and country tones as well, that’s why we call it the Flex Drive. This is just an incredible tool for studio and live performances."

$259

THE LEMON AID.

"The Lemon Aid was the most difficult pedal to name due to its versatility. It is a boost pedal in essence but it also acts as a sort of preamp or frequency modifier. This pedal offers a clean, treble and full boost all in one. However, each boost position is adjustable in several aspects. You can make any one of the desired boost settings either thicker or thinner or you can cut the overall output to make the effect more subtle. The combinations of all of the available settings give you a myriad of boosts and frequency modifications."

$259

THE BLUE NOTE OVERDRIVE.

"The Blue Note gives you a very woodsy blues feel and can achieve more gain than a typical tube screamer (no this isn't another tubescreamer clone just using this as a reference). With the newly added "Hot" switch the pedal is capable of multiple tones. The Blue note can be set to run flat in its EQ section or select the "Hot" position for more prominent mids. This pedal is all about feel and really works well with any guitar/amp combination. This is one of our favorites."

THE 10 TON HAMMER.

"The 10 Ton Hammer is pretty self explanatory. This pedal was designed for the high gain old school purist. With separate bass and treble controls this pedal allows for very tweakable tones. We personally favor the old school high gain tones with very tight low end and articulate chord voicings but still with a natural drive. Drop the 10 Ton Hammer on the hardest piece of old school metal you have!"

THE CHICKEN SOUP OVERDRIVE.

"The Chicken Soup Overdrive was aimed at the Nashville crowd. This pedal gives you that extremely transparent twanky tone as we like to say. Great for Teles and Strats. Think ODR-1 but improved. This pedal is very simple but very effective as well." The Chicken Soup Overdrive is extremely quiet with true bypass just like all Rockett pedals.

$249

THE ANIMAL OVERDRIVE.

The Animal is Rockett's creation of a 1968 Plexi Sound. The Animal is an extremely open and amp like sound that can get you from a stock plexi to a modified plexi with the flick of the snarl switch. The Animal can get very aggressive but it is by no means a distortion pedal, just think of a cranked plexi and how open and natural it sounds.

$249

THE JOSH SMITH DUAL TREMOLO

The first in Rockett's Signature Series. The JSDT was designed to achieve the old school tremolo sound of some of Leo Fender's early amps. Features two identical trems, both with variable speeds and intensities, and a volume boost. Set one fast the other slow, or vary the intensity and toggle back and forth between them. A killer trem designed as a collaborative effort between Josh Smith, Rockett Pedals and Tim Jauernig.

$275

T.C.Jauernig Effects
We are proud to be Australian agent for Tim Jauernig's custom effects. Killer pedals hand built in the U.S.A.

THE LUXURY TWIN-RATE TREMOLO

The Luxury Twin-Rate Tremolo is a true bypass, foot switching dual speed tremolo. There are two independent rate controls that the user can select. This enables both a slow and fast speed setting from one unit. One of the hand built originals built by Tim in the U.S.A.

Was $275 On Sale Now only $195

THE DIABOLICAL GRISTLE TONE MANIPULATOR

The DGTM is not your typical overdrive. Inspired by the savage auditory pummeling of Greg Koch, the DGTM brings forth a distinctive overdrive that will satisfy many an overdrive connoisseur's palate. From vintage crunch to modern "tweak", it's all in there. The rights to this design have been sold to T-Rex of Denmark, so this is the last chance to get the hand built original from the U.S.A. - and at a better price than the mass produced version as well.

$325

THE GRISTLE KING

The Gristle King is a combination of the features of the DGTM and the Luxury Drive offering a wide variety of boost and overdrive possibilities. Both pedals plus a pre/post toggle for the Luxury circuit and a phat toggle for more low end girth. A killer pedal. The rights to this design have been sold to T-Rex of Denmark, so this is the last chance to get the hand built original from the U.S.A. - and at a better price than the mass produced version as well.

$350

THE DOUBLE DIABOLICAL GRISTLE TONE MANIPULATOR

The white side of the Dbl-DGTM has approximately half the gain of the black side. The white side works especially well with humbucking pickups. By combining the two sides some very thick overdrive tones can be created, all the way to borderline fuzz tones. Tim only built a handful of these. A cool and scarce pedal.

$495

Chad Matthews (CMATMODS)
Chad is a custom builder of effects pedals from Tennessee in the good ol' U.S.A. When he's not playing with his muscle cars, he's hand building great pedals. Ace Guitars can now offer these fine effects pedals here in Australia.

THE DELUXE SIGNA COMP

The Deluxe Signa Comp (Compressor) has 4 knobs - for Sustain, Level, Tone and Attack to give you greater control over your tone. In the beginning there was the vintage Ross compressor, then there was the Keeley which has become the standard in quality compressors, now comes the Deluxe Signa Comp. An even better comp from Chad Matthews.

$245

THE ROSS CLONE COMPRESSOR

The Ross Compressor is one of the most highly regarded vintage compressor. The Ross has a very natural and transparent sound. Chad's clone is an upgraded version of this classic with better parts and better matched transistors, plus true Bypass and an added tone control.

$195

THE DEEELAY

The Deeelay has controls for Delay, Repeat and Blend. This pedal now has 600ms of delay time and sounds great. Dead quiet with hardly any noise. A killer analog delay from Chad Matthews.

$225

THE BOOST

The Boost is clean boost of 20db with an added a touch of presence to help you stand out in the mix. Small MXR sized case in bare aluminium with a decal top. An excellent boost at a great price.

$145

THE BUTAH

The Butah is a low gain overdrive that delivers that old vintage tube amp tone and when pushed it will tip your tube amp in to overdrive. Also great when used with your existing overdrive pedal. This baby delivers the tone. A great pedal from Chad Matthews.

$185

THE SIGNA DRIVE

Chad's best seller and a great sounding and versatile OverDrive pedal. Aside from the usual knobs this has a 3 way toggle that allows different clipping and gain structures. A top pedal

$195

THE BLACK PLAGUE

The Black plague is a 'Rat' style distortion pedal based around the LM308n chip. Filter, Gain and Level controls plus a three way toggle. Cool graphics and excellent distortion tones.

$195

THE ANALOG CHORUS

The Analog Chorus is a small box two knob chorus pedal using the long discontinued BBD MN3007 & MN3101 analog chips. This chorus nails that warm lush sound typical of the best vintage analog chorus pedals.

$225

THE WATERBOX

The Waterbox is an all analog chorus pedal that has that deep lush sound like the best of the vintage chorus pedals. Controls for rate, depth and effect level (to adjust how much chorus signal you want with the dry signal). Also 3 toggle switches for more rate, more wet bass (very good with bass guitars) and a vibrato switch. Another great pedal from Chad Matthews.

$345

Liquid Gain

THE LIQUID GAIN HYDRA

The Hydra is a small run, 4 knob preamp/overdrive for guitar, custom built in Japan. This is not, like so many pedals, yet another variation on the good old tubescreamer. This baby has it's own unique voice - richer and darker tones, killer crunch. A top pedal.

$325

Casey Gooby
Australian agent for the Gooby Bag of Dicks. Only we can say that!

THE GOOBY BAG OF DICKS.

Casey Gooby's Bag of Dicks is a great two knob fuzz inspired by the amazing Jordan BossTone of the late '60's. An expressive and dynamic fuzz pedal with a low noise floor. Hand built in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. Now gracing the pedal board of the great Billy Gibbons.

$250

Montreux
Australian agent for the Montreux effects pedals and Montreux vintage clone guitar parts.

THE MONTREUX KNEBWORTH

The Knebworth is the ultimate distortion and boost pedal. Killer "Marshall" style distortion modes plus a 20db boost that can be used independently as well as in conjunction with the distortion. This is possibly the best rock pedal out there. Hand built in the U.S.A. and Japan for Montreux of Japan.

$450

THE MONTREUX KNEBWORTH II

The new small box version of the Knebworth (without the 20db boost). Three clipping modes for a rich rock palette. A killer distortion pedal.

$275

THE MONTREUX CODA

The Coda is a killer overdrive/boost pedal. The overdrive circuit is based on the original TS808 but with 3 gain modes. NORMAL mode is TS808, THICK mode is normal with added mid-low frequency and you can get almost double gain at HI GAIN mode. The right side is an original design 20db boost that can be used independently as well as in conjunction with the overdrive. Hand built in the U.S.A. and Japan.
