The Animal is Rockett's version of the 1968 “Plexi” Sound. The Animal is an extremely open and amp-like sound that can get you from a stock “Plexi” to a modified “Plexi” with the flick of the snarl switch. The Animal can get very aggressive but it is by no means a distortion pedal. Just think of a cranked “Plexi” and how open and natural it sounds.
- The bass and treble controls are both very subtle but also useable throughout their entire sweep.
- The “snarl” switch, when in the down position, is for the stock “Plexi” mode and with the switch up it is in the “Modded Plexi” mode.
By backing off on the gain and putting the “snarl” switch down, the Animal OD can achieve very good “blues tones”. Experiment with the volume, as it can be a loud pedal! This pedal drives an amp very well!

All J. Rockett Audio Designs pedals operate off of the standard BOSS type 9 volt adapter or
a single 9 volt battery. The power input is a 5.5 mm x 2.1 mm jack with the positive voltage
on the outer sleeve. Using an external power supply will automatically disconnect the
battery. Disconnect the input jack to preserve battery life when not in use or when not used
with an appropriate, external power supply.
