Amptweaker Unveils the BigRock Pro

The BigRock Pro features three effects loops: a universal loop, boost loop, and SideTrak loop.

Cumming, GA (January 15, 2014) -- Last summer’s TightMetal Pro distortion pedal created quite a stir, and immediately Amptweaker received many requests for a rock version. Unlike most distortion pedals with a single boost, the BigRock Pro includes 2 Boost knobs, one before and one after the distortion.....so it’s easy to boost the gain AND volume, for the perfect solo tone! Patch your favorite delay into the Boost Effects Loop, and you’ve got onestomp control of your rock rhythm and lead.

Added switches on this pedal allow it to get tones from both our popular TightRock and FatRock distortion pedals. These include the Smooth Edge switch which cuts the high end sizzle for a warmer edge, and 2 Fat switches that allow either the normal or Boosted tones to have a thicker attack with a bit more compression. The added three band EQ allows for much tonal variation, with its PlexEQ button for a more traditional stack tone. Our standard noise gate from the original TightRock is also included, which tracks the gain knob and has internal adjustments.

Amptweaker pedals are known for effects loops, and this one has 3: a universal loop, the Boost loop, and our popular SideTrak loop which activates when the pedal is OFF, to automatically switch in/out clean effects.

Standard Amptweaker features: LED illumination of controls, 9-18V operation, and true bypass switching.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
