OVERVIEW

Designed from the mind of Allan Holdsworth to boost your signal and add flavor to your sound.

The Allan Holdsworth Signature OD/Boost was designed along side Allan to create a very versatile tool. This pedal gives you a very mild OD and a very tweakable boost section that allows for different EQ emphasis. By hitting the OD with the boost you can get some pretty scorching gain. Allan needed a pedal to combat backlines yet still achieve his signature sound and feel. This pedal turned out better than expected and has proven to be a mainstay on Rockett's personal boards.

    Comments about Rockett Pedals Allan Holdsworth Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

    A great straightforward unit . The sound is excellent and gives an uncolored (unless one fiddles with the treble and bass functions)punch to my sound.. and the boost would, if dimed ,blow your ears and amp out.

          Comments about Rockett Pedals Allan Holdsworth Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

          The battery compartment is accessed by removing the three screws on the back and removing the back plate. I use a visual sound 1-spot, so I don't leave a battery in the pedal. There is almost no unwanted noise, even with both sides of the pedal on and a slightly distorted tube amp. (I was using a humbucker.) This is not a stand alone distortion period. It is like a optimized tube screamer with a very useful booster as well.

            Comments about Rockett Pedals Allan Holdsworth Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Wow, I couldn't disagree more with the reviewer who gave the Allan Holdsworth OD pedal one star. I've had this pedal for about three months now and love it! It's very transparent, and just accentuates your amp's sound. It's also very versatile with many options with tone and range of gain. With my clean channel I can use it as a boost or add some break up when clean soloing and it sounds great. When used with my gain channel the pedal accentuates my distortion tones beautifully. I can add as little or as much transparent distortion as I want. Noisy? I don't hear any added hiss at all when using the pedal. Also, I haven't experienced any problems when using the AH OD with my other pedals. And, as far as no battery compartment, I prefer using an AC adaptor, so that's not an issue for me. I have no problem with Boss pedals, I have a Boss chorus pedal that I've used for years. But, I feel Rockett is a great company and they have developed an excellent product that I am very pleased with.

              Comments about Rockett Pedals Allan Holdsworth Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

              The overdrive is fairly versatile as is the boost function, both of which can operate independently.

              I saw a review saying that this pedal was very noisy, which hasn't been the case for me. I gave the pedal 4 stars since I'm still figuring it out. I would have preferred to not give it a rating at this current time, but that's not an option.

              Comments about Rockett Pedals Allan Holdsworth Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

              After watching several demos on youtube, I was very optimistic when I received this pedal. First of all, it does not come with a power supply nor does it have a battery compartment. I ended up using a BOSS 9.6V adapter to get it to work. Tone was terrible, did not work well with other pedals and very noisy on its own. Best bet, stick with BOSS, always affordable, clean, dependable, and versatile with all equipment and power sources. THIS IS A HUGE NO!
