Rockbox Limited Edition Boiling Point Overdrive Boost Pedal
The Rockbox™ Boiling Point™ Overdrive Boost incorporates a 3-position diode selector for a nearly endless variety of harmonic flavor. In the Plexi mode, the pedal has very Marshall-like response. For the Asymetric Overdrive mode, Rockbox gave the pedal a truly organic, tube-like distortion, with greater output. You will notice the overtones and response is like no other pedal. The middle position is a clean boost, with more than enough gain to send your favorite tube amp into overdrive heaven. While the Overdrive Boost has a tremendous amount of gain, Rockbox paid close attention to how the pedal cleans up. If you are a volume knob player, you will love how this pedal will clean up for a thick, creamy clean rhythm sound.
For greatest road reliability, there are no socketed connections in any location with the exception of the 4558 chip, which was designed to be socketed. Socketed connections, which you will find in some boutique builders work, can come loose and fail. All connections are soldered within the pedal for greatest road reliability. The IC is socketed so that you can experiment with other IC chips. It may be quicker to use pin sockets like some of the more expensive competition, but you don't want to suffer due to unreliable connections.
Rockbox truly believes that the Boiling Point™ is one of the best overdrive pedals you will ever purchase. If you are an experienced guitarist, satisfied with your amplifier rig, the Boiling Point™ will add a wide variety of very tasty flavors to enhance your sound. "Enhance" is an important concept. The Boiling Point™ is specifically tuned with the finest quality components to ensure that the true sound of your guitar shines through. You will notice that your guitar's sound will remain the foundation of that sound even with the most aggressive distortion settings.
