The Rocket Launcher is an attenuator or "Reverse Boost" pedal. The pedal itself does not boost your signal. The Rocket Launcher works by attenuating the signal, giving you a lower "rhythm" volume level. The amp is set at a higher volume to give a perceived "boost" when the pedal is disengaged.
So, quit running your expensive tube amp at ridiculously low levels and then trying to boost it with a boost pedal for leads. All this does is slam the front end of your amp giving you a completely different tone. Especially in the high gain channel. Hey, I like the sound of my amp...I just want it louder for soloing.
The Rocket Launcher can be used in several different ways. By inserting the pedal into an amps' FX loop the tone is left completely intact. This means that the pedal won’t affect your overdrive or high gain distortion, that you love so much, it will just get louder. You're using your amp as a boost. With the Rocket Launchers' true bypass switching it's like plugging straight into your amp for your boost tone.
Another way to use your Rocket Launcher is after your pedal board. If you use pedals to craft your distortion, just place the Rocket Launcher after the last pedal. The tone of your pedals will be left intact, only lowered for rhythm and louder for leads. If plugging in direct is more your style, try using a Rocket Launcher after your modeling processor. This way you wont have to change presets for solos, then try to find your way back to the original preset. The Rocket Launcher also works great with bass and keyboards.
Each Rocket Launcher is wired by hand in the United States using only the finest components.
There are two LED's:
