Rocktron Super Charger urn to Rocktron’s Reaction Super Charger and find your inner musical soul with tone that will make your guitar sing!
Using a good overdrive can really make a difference when performing, but a great overdrive can define a player’s signature sound. It is the relationship between the way you play and feel at that moment, and how a pedal reacts that defines a pedal you simply can’t perform without. That is exactly the feeling you are going to experience with the Reaction Super Charger. It’s like a double shot of espresso that invigorates the soul, capable of invoking solo bliss!
Rocktron’s Reaction Series pedals are built into a rugged metal slim form factor chassis, taking up as little space as possible on your pedalboard. The Reaction Super Charger is a TRUE BYPASS pedal: when you turn it off…it is out of your signal path!
Control knobs for the Super Charger include GAIN, which controls the amount of Overdrive you want. TONE controls the amount of highs. LEVEL determines Output Volume. Even a swamp rat could handle this stomp box.
Does your amp need a kick in the pants? The Reaction Super Charger will make your amp’s built-in distortion scream! Looking to add some edge to your crunch tone? The Super Charger will provide that much needed “bite” and “growl” that will push the edge of the envelope!
Whatever style you play, from blues to heavy rock, can benefit with a little “Super Charging”. The Reaction Super Charger reacts to your playing nuances while adding just enough warmth without being brash, all the while sporting an extra dose of gain just in case it is needed. Take your sound to new places and add the Reaction Super Charger overdrive to your setup.
The footswitch on the Reaction Super Charger controls On/Off status as shown by the LED indicator. Reaction stomp boxes run on a 9V Alkaline battery, or may also be powered by Rocktron’s DC OnTap Universal Power Supply adaptor.
Most studio compressors are big and bulky and quite difficult to set. Rocktron comes to the rescue with the Reaction Compressor. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 to get professional results that will improve your live performances.
Here’s some tips. Start by setting the ATTACK and LEVEL controls around the 12::00 o’clock position. Turn the SUSTAIN from left to right in small increments while playing until you achieve the texture you are seeking. After you have found your favorite sweet spot, use the LEVEL control to fine tune your output level. That’s it! Sound check is done.
Use the Reaction Compressor as a master SOLO switch to not only define what you play but also to raise the volume! The soundman can worry about something else…you have performance control!.
Typically you want to set the output level after compression has been applied so that it is the same as the pedal in True Bypass – this is called “unity gain” (the same level from pedal on to pedal off). You may want to apply compression, and then actually add volume using the LEVEL control. Now you have added more sustain and drive which can be used before an overdrive pedal, or direct into your amplifier.
Compression helps define articulation for any instrument by limiting how loud a note can get. It also makes lower volume notes louder. The end result is a smoother and more even sound, and that is what you hear on professional recordings. It’s also what you will hear live! The soundman will thank you!
