J. Rockett Audio Designs was formed by: Chris Van Tassel and Jay Rockett in 2006. 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 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.
There are and were, at the time, many great products available but both Chris and Jay wanted to tailor their products to meet their personal tonal needs. All products were designed in hopes that the outcome would meet the needs of the many.
Unique custom enclosures were a must that not only serve as an aesthetic benefit but also a functional benefit. A large part of the influence in design came from the Audiophile world along with the critical listening skills to differentiate the tonal outcomes.
Once the company got off the ground we brought on a new partner Ron Hahn who gave us the much needed boost to keep us growing and developing. Once the 3 of us hit stride it developed into a great partnership with equal respect all around and equal input toward a very bright future.
It is our hope as a manufacturer of guitar effects that we can inspire guitarists to make music and enjoy the journey of the tone search no matter what product they choose.
Thanks for your interest in Rockett Pedals!
Chris, Jay and Ron
