Overdrive/Boost
Jackson Audio - 'Broken Arrow'

Aston Origin Condenser Mic

Overdrive/Boost Pedal
with 3-band Equalizer
The ’Broken Arrow’ Overdrive from Jackson Audio is here, and it’s coming for all your other drive pedals! This hugely versatile OD is jam-packed with a broad spectrum of killer crunch sounds, from iconic TS tones, all the way through to red-hot Plexi style. For incredible tone shaping potential, Jackson Audio equipped the ‘Broken Arrow’ with a hugely-responsive 3-band Baxandall-style EQ.

There’s more! The ‘Broken Arrow’ isn’t done yet! It also sports an innovative ‘Gain Cycle’ feature, handing you full access to four different maximum gain settings. Full MIDI compatibility is available too, meaning its plethora of settings are easily controlled underfoot. Jackson Audio’s ‘Broken Arrow’ is likely to be the last OD pedal you’ll ever need!

Amazing Features • Four selectable clipping diode presets
• Versatile overdrive pedal for serious tone chasers
• Baxandall-style 3-band EG for flexible tone shaping
• MOSFET boost circuit exhibits amp-like breakup

4 Clipping Diode Presets

back

huge spectrum of drive tonesWhen it came to designing the ‘Broken Arrow’, Jackson Audio went above and beyond the call of duty to deliver an Overdrive with a huge spectrum of tones inside, beginning with 4 selectable clipping diode presets.

Clearly indicated by bright LEDS, the clipping modes include a ‘classic screamer’ mode featuring 2 symmetrical silicon diodes (Green), an asymmetrical clipping mode with 3 silicon diodes (Magenta), a precise and direct four-diode symmetrical clipping mode (Blue), and a classic Brit-style overdrive (Amber).

Baxandall-style EQ

back

HUGELY RESPONSIVE EQOften overlooked by guitarists, a great EQ is the difference between good guitar tone, and great guitar tone. For this reason, Jackson Audio included a 3-band Baxandall-style EQ to shape your tone.

Baxandall-style EQs are known for their gently-sloped curves which deliver organic and rich tone shaping, which is the reason why they’re some of the most commonly found EQ’s found in studios across the globe.

Furthermore, the ‘Broken Arrow’s EQ can be a god send if you ever find yourself playing through a less-than ideal amplifier, compensating in tone.

4 Boost Presets

4K Recording

DYNAMIC DRIVE MODESThe boost circuit is in its own true bypass loop which means it can be used independently of the drive circuit. The boost circuit in the 'Broken Arrow' is a Mosfet based boost much like the Amp mode found in our best selling Prism Preamp pedal. To activate/deactivate the boost circuit simply press the boost footswitch.

One of the things that makes the boost in the 'Broken Arrow' different from other boosts on the market is that it has 4 presets available. Each preset is EQ’d slightly differently to allow it to alter how it interacts with the overdrive circuit in the 'Broken Arrow' or any other pedal you may have in your rig

Preset 1
YELLOW LED
Bright Boost. Very useful for creating a thinner sound or when boosting a thick sounding overdrive.

Preset 2
GREEN LED
Mid Boost. Not as thin as the yellow mode, the green mode allows more lows and takes on the character of a mid boost.

Preset 3
AQUA LED
Tailored Boost. Most people will find this a perfect setting that will complement most any overdrive setting in the BROKEN ARROW.

Preset 4
BLUE LED
Full Range. No tonal coloring here! Just your guitars natural tone!
