J. Rockett Audio Designs Unveils the Hooligan Fuzz

You can go from a very smooth, Rat-type overdrive to the famous Trombetta horn sounds.

Nashville, TN (August 12, 2016) -- J. Rockett Audio Designs has announced the fifth product release in the Tour Series line. The Tour Series is comprised of new products designed with the influence of a host of top Nashville and LA touring artists to address their needs on the road.

The collaboration continues with the release of the J. Rockett Audio Designs Hooligan Fuzz.

The Hooligan is the Tour Series version of the WTF Fuzz but with some tonal tweaks and made to be simple in every way. We wanted this pedal to really inspire players, which can be hard to do with a fuzz pedal. The Hooligan blooms and feeds back, creating all sorts of textures. You can go from a very smooth, Rat-type overdrive to the famous Trombetta horn sounds. We feel like we have dialed in the perfect warmth versus the typical, strident sound of a fuzz pedal. The Hooligan is very musical and fun to play!

Hooligan Fuzz features include:

  • 3 controls: Level, Gain, Gunk
  • I/O jacks at the head of the pedal
  • 9V DC operation with standard – tip and + sleeve
  • Approximately 4” x 2.30” in size

The Hooligan Fuzz carries a $174.99 street price.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
