J.Rockett Tim Pierce Details

This is a very smooth, warm, punchy drive made to really shine with singing leads. The Power Amp section of the J.Rockett Tim Pierce is fat and loud with nothing but punch, designed to emulate the sound of a full blown tube power amp using 5881′s. Both sides can be used separately or cascaded together, giving you a distinct 2 in 1 pedal.

The power amp section was created to emulate the 5881 servo tube found in the Naylor SD60. Even if you engage the “power amp” section at unity volume, it will add a certain amp-like fatness to your overall sound. You can also use it as a solo boost as well.


  • Drive: Controls the level of grit and/or overdrive for the OD side and contributes to the grit/overdrive when cascaded with the boost side.
  • Level: Controls the volume for the OD side and contributes to the volume control when cascaded with the boost side.
  • Bass: Controls the bass and/or fatness of the OD side or contributes to the bass and/or fatness when cascaded with the boost side.
  • Tone: Controls the brightness and/or presence of the OD side or contributes to the
    brightness and/or presence when cascaded with the boost side.
  • P. Amp Switch: Engages the “power amp” only or cascades it with the OD side.
  • P. Amp Knob: Controls the volume of the boost or contributes to the output when cascaded with the OD side.

I’ve been using this fantastic little pedal for a couple of years now. I’m not a gear aficionado, so I don’t know all the ins and outs of the pedal world. I have to admit, I initially bought it because of the Tim Pierce name (I’m a huge fan). But if it’s got his seal of approval, it can’t be too shabby, right?

This pedal is well-made, hefty, and top-quality. It’s also very quiet when bypassed or activated. The power amp works great as a boost for both clean and overdrive solos. The tone is exceptional and very prominent. If you crank the drive all the way up, you won’t be shredding like Synyster Gates, but you will get some thick leads, and the tone and bass knobs are highly responsive.

Whether you’re looking to experiment or use it live, you won’t regret getting this pedal. It’s not ideal for the shred-master deluxe, but that’s not really its intended purpose. This pedal is perfect for adding a little grit to your tasty licks, the type of playing that’s made Tim Pierce a fixture in modern music for the past few decades. I haven’t tried it with a single-coil guitar, but with a juicy neck humbucker pickup, it will absolutely soar.



As I’ve only owned this pedal for a few weeks, I’m still discovering its capabilities. However, I can attest to its fantastic tube-like tone, which ranges from gentle breakup to extreme distortion that can peel wallpaper off the walls. It’s incredibly versatile, allowing me to find the perfect amount of drive for any style of music I want to play. Moreover, it’s built like a sturdy tank, and I believe it will remain a fixture on my pedalboard for years to come.
