Rockett El Hombre | Overdrive
Texas Heat Style Overdrive
Anyone who knows Rockett knows that they have almost too many OD's in the mix but this pedal is so good none of them could deny the fact that it needed to hit the market ahead of some newer designs. Of course, there were 'Tres' Hombres but this pedal was aimed right at Billy Gibbons and his tone so of course that is where 'El Hombre' came from. We would love to pass this pedal along as a ZZ Top drive but it is much more than that. Give it a try with any style of guitar playing and we are confident you will be happy
Based on the classic tones of a bearded Texas legend, El Hombre is the ideal overdrive for those feeling the blues or ready to rock all night. Capturing the nuances and touch sensitivity of an amplifier, El Hombre can go from mild to wild with the turn of the gain knob showing its versatility with each guitar plugged into it. From added harmonics to chewy sag, El Hombre has it all!
The El Hombre is simple in format but complex in its abilities. The tone section is very effective allowing you to alter the drive style simply by adjusting the Bite control. When you bring the bite control up, it becomes more aggressive; turn it down to make it smoother and more reminiscent of Dumble tones. Please experiment because there is a myriad of sounds in such a simple pedal. Push the volume up and bring the gain back for some amazing blues tones, push the gain and drop the volume for the smooth Carlton/Ford sounds. Bring the Bite control up and get wide open Plexi sounds. We are confident that this pedal can achieve any tone you need which is why we love it so much.
