J. Rockett Audio Archer Overdrive

The J. Rockett Archer is one of the most popular “Klones,” i.e. that category of pedals trying to emulate the tone of the famously expensive Klon Centaur (here’s our extensive list of Klon Clones, by the way!).

J. Rockett went to painstaking lengths to design their take on the Centaur, appropriately named the Archer. One of the few recreations to  include the Klon’s “secret sauce”, the Archer uses the same NOS germanium diodes used in the original pedal.
