OVERVIEW

An overdrive pedal that'll deliver the sound and the feel of the blues.

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 TS clone just using this as a reference). With the newly added "Hot" switch the pedal is capable of multiple tones. The "Hot" switch adds more gain, more volume and gooses the low mids for a thick juicy feel. The Blue note can be set to run flat in its EQ section or select the "Hot" position for more prominent mids. Since the Blue note can be run in either position it makes it suitable for many applications. This pedal is all about feel and really works well with any guitar/amp combination. This is a favorite.

I play and record for a living and have used dang near every overdrive in existence. THIS is not just my favorite OD pedal of all time, but my single favorite pedal OF ANY TYPE. There's not a ton of gain on tap, so if you're looking for high gain, check out the Animal. But if you're looking for the paramount low-to-medium gain OD pedal, this is the one. It also takes a clean boost really well. It can be SUPER smooth for solos (yet without muddiness), it can be used to add a touch of amp-like grit to a rhythm sound, and it makes for my all time favorite crunch tone. Just TRY it and you'll be pumping your fist with tonal glee.

I purchased this after already had purchased the animal by J.Rockett, and wondered if I may have been missing something. As it turned out, not really. I already have a ts-808 and to me it was just another tube screamer, GRANTED it can be used as a "clean-boost, without any gain, but I just didn't care for that sound. I bought an overdrive pedal to produce overdrive...not get a clean mid-hump...

That said, this is a fine pedal, and covers the tube-screamer territory, but nothing more than that. It's cleaner, but I found it getting in the way of my animal and 808 pair, rather than helping. If I didn't already have a tube screamer this would be great, but I personally love the 808 I have so I have no need for another pedal that sounds a whole lot like it.

Take away...if you have a 808 already, you may look else where depending on your needs, if you really need a good 808 sound this will fill the bill, but isn't necessarily any better than a typical tube screamer, except it has a much wider clean to dirty "range".

      Comments about Rockett Pedals Blue Note Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      After doing some professional recording, I realized I needed an upgrade in pedals, specifically distortion. I had been using the BD-2 by Boss for a while with my Twin and it was going great, but really lacked the clarity and openness I was looking for to imitate a high quality head without the hefty price tag. This pedal has a huge amount of headroom and you can REALLY crank it if you need to. Cuts through my mix amazingly well. Tone knob brings out the high end, but I wouldn't go above 3 o'clock. Fat is more low-mid area, which I have around 1 o'clock. The gain just continues to open up without all the compression, which I love. Overall, I'm very satisfied. Looking forward to more Rockett stuff. Thanks also to Musician's Friend for great prices and service!

        Comments about Rockett Pedals Blue Note Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I have never experienced such bliss with any od pedal, i can always dial in the right sound, very responsive/amp like at all settings. I have always had issues trying to dial in a good sound without fizz and that is amp like or natural as possible, to no avail, with so many other od pedals. Until i got this blue note, im serious it sounds amazing by itself, very versatile and transparent. It stacks extremely well with any other pedal, dirt or whatever. It goes so good with my script dyna comp its ridiculous! I play a maple alder strat with cs69 pickups into an ac30 and a twin reverb and it all sounds incredible. This pedal sounds amazing at all settings. Get it, ya won't regret it!

          Comments about Rockett Pedals Blue Note Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This can be used for just equalizing the output of single coils to match humbuckers, all the way to a great full overdrive sound. It is the first pedal at ANY price I have found that truly sounds great through Fender Twin Reverb amp, as well as every other amp I have ran it through. It is the best pedal I have ever had.

            Comments about Rockett Pedals Blue Note Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I recently purchase the Blue Note from Musician's Friend. The pedal is freaking awesome. I use it as a mid-level overdrive for songs that aren't as heavy. Earthquaker Talons for heavier sound. The Blue Note is a very well put together sound. It sounds very organic and very sonically pleasing. As you've heard, it is very transparent so the each note comes through beautifully! Also cuts through the mix very well for lead rides! I love this thing.. just the pedal I was looking for and believe me, I researched this thing to death! I play it with an American Telecaster through a Fender Deluxe Reverb. Musical Bliss!

              This is my favorite overdrive, and I have tried a lot. It is a very neutral (I.e. does not attenuate any frequencies, or squash the bass). It's very expressive and allows the players finesse and amp tone to come through. If you love your rig and just need more gain (and it does get plenty of gain just shy of 'metal' with the hot switch) this is your pedal.

                  Comments about Rockett Pedals Blue Note Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  This pedal is perfect for an overdriven blues sound. You can use it to get a smooth to dirty tube amp blues effect without cranking the amp all the way and blowing out your ears. It is not a Big Mu.. or TS9, and it isn't a do-it-all distortion pedal. But, it's great at what it does. The hot switch is great if your guitar has lower output pickups.
