Nashville, TN (May 15, 2020) -- J Rockett Audio Designs releases the Broverdrive.

“We wanted to make something that wasn’t another derivative of a tube amp in a box or another Tube Screamer copy” says Chris Van Tassel. The Broverdrive is a very musical overdrive designed to be applicable to all amps and guitars. With plenty of gain on tap the Broverdrive is an incredibly musical drive that can go from mild to wild with dynamics and touch sensitivity. From single-coil chewiness to heavier humbucker driven tones the Broverdrive delivers every time.

The Broverdrive features::

  • Stainless steel enclosure for extra durability
  • True Bypass
  • Self servisable replaceable Speedswitch for instant, on the spot repairs for the gigining player

The Broverdrive is available now for $199. Available for online purchase via select dealers.
