Introducing the Box of Rock, ZVEX Effect's pioneering distortion pedal designed to emulate the iconic "everything on 10" tone of a classic Marshall® JTM45 amp. Versatile across various amplifiers, set your desired drive and fine-tune distortion levels using your guitar's volume control. The Vexter version features the "distortron engine," a uniquely named distortion circuit for a touch of eccentricity.
Alongside its distortion prowess, the Box of Rock boasts a high-headroom, unity-to-50X gain booster with minimal hiss and standard amp input characteristics, akin to the Super Hard On boost circuit. Use the boost channel independently or combine it with the "distortron engine" for added versatility. The boost channel follows the distortion channel, ensuring a powerful impact on your amp, perfect for elevating solos. Embrace the exceptional sound dynamics of the Box of Rock - a distortion pedal that defies convention and takes your guitar tones to new heights.
