SINCE 2008

Our goal has been to create the best sounding, roadworthy pedals honoring the past and future

J. Rockett Audio Designs was formed by Chris Van Tassel and Jay Rockett in 2006 with the dream of creating the best guitar effects for players around the world. Both Jay and Chris had been long time session musicians with many years of experience in the recording industry.

After years of dissatisfaction with available products on the market both Chris and Jay decided to try and create products that satisfied their particular needs for tone. Many top session players were consulted in their designs to create the current line of products and the results have taken the world by storm.

Hand built in the United States J Rockett Audio Design covers every aspect of shaping your tone from overdrives and distortions to delays, modulation, fuzzes and even buffers. J Rockett is and will always a be a player designed and inspired company with a passion for the touring and player community. Check out our pedals today online, in stores and most importantly through your rig.

We look forward to working with you become the best playing and sounding musician you can be.

A little about us

Who we are


Built in SoCal

Our pedals are made in sunny California


Steel Enclosures

Our pedals are built like tanks using steel. Weighing about a pound each!





Tour Ready

Our Speedswitch system is meant to never have your pedal go down. Simply swap out the switch and replace it within minutes. No solder needed! 


Function First

We believe that a pedal should have easy to use controls and features so you spend more time connecting with your sound then tweaking knobs



Our pedals are meant to inspire and be a balance between musically sweet to your ears and provide a certain "feel" that only the finest gear provides


Vintage Meets Modern

We love the inspiring pedals of the past. We try to honor those pedals with modern functionality for the demands of players of today
