This pedal requires a lot of experimentation due to the number of different settings available. There are so many tones that the combinations are almost endless! The pedal was designed to help a bad guitar or amplifier sound good. It also makes a good guitar or amp sound even better! Rockett prefers to simply use it as a lead boost to any one of our OD pedals.
The Lemon Aid truly brings out an amazing amp-like quality to any other pedal. You can also bring out significant amounts of “chime” in any single coil guitar for beautiful clean tones! With the “full boost” mode activated you can slam the front end of your amp and push it well into overdrive. The key to this pedal is how you work the tone knob. The pedal cleans up brilliantly which gives your tone an extremely glassy sound when the volume is reduced on the guitar. Experiment, experiment, experiment to find what suits you! The Lemon Aid works differently with all guitars so be aware of its massive volume in the “full boost” mode!

Tone: When turned to the right the higher frequencies are increased, when turned to the left the higher frequencies are decreased.
Voice: This switch provides thicker or thinner sounds applicable to any combination of settings.
Boosts: When in the up position a treble boost is activated, when in the middle position it is a clean boost, when in the down position a full boost is activated.
Cut: This switch is used to cut output and top end. It is best used when either the full boost or treble boost modes are selected. This allows for adjustment of the frequencies to taste.
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.
